Bonhams announced Monday that they have been chosen by Carroll Shelby’s estate to bring over two dozen vehicles from the chicken farmer’s personal collection to auction. The lineup is a mixed group consisting of collaborations with Ford and Chrysler and a few proprietary Shelby products. All 24 vehicles will be sold at no reserve at Bonhams Greenwich Concours d’Elegance sale in Connecticut on Sunday, June 3.

You’ll find a few standouts among the diverse lots, including a 1969 Shelby GT 500 previously owned by the actor Jackie Cooper Jr. and a 1935 Chrysler sedan once owned by Steve McQueen. Predictably, Shelby would have a few of his own projects in the garage, and those offered by Bonhams include the first 1999 Shelby Series 1 built, a 2011 Shelby Cobra CSX 8027 and several of his compact car collaborations with Dodge. Also offered in the sale is a Lincoln Continental, DeThomaso Pantera and Pantera GT5, and a pair of contemporary Shelby Mustangs.
