The widow (Betty Brewer) placed the Shelby and two other cars in the back of a newly constructed large shop on the property in 1976 and forgot about the cars after five decades of storing her collectables in the shop. The Shelby and the two other cars were re-discovered in 2014 by the family while examining the estate. Betty passed away in 2016 at the age of 90. Car was then sold to Gas Monkey Garage in 2017 and filmed on an episode of Discoverys Fast N Loud.HistoryHarold and Betty Brewer owned Brewer Motor Mart, a used car lot, in Union City Indiana and Greenville, Ohio, from 1949 to 1975 plus a farm and residential properties. In the late 1960's Harold purchased a slightly used 1968 Shelby GT-500 for a gentleman from Indianapolis who ordered the Shelby from Ed Martin Ford, a well-known Indiana dealer and the nearest Shelby dealer.In 1974 Harold placed his Shelby for sale on his used car lot in Greenville Ohio. He sold the car to a local family located on the other side of the state-line in Indiana. George and Barbara Dillon bought the Shelby and drove it around with their kids for a couple of months and had it registered on Indiana license plate68C 786, last renewed in February of 1974 and the last license plate that this Shelby ever displayed on the road. Unfortunately George lost his Job and the Dillons returned the GT500 back to Harold on a $50 deposit hold and never got the car back but it is rumored that their grandson still has the second set of original keys in his possession. The short ownership of the Dillons was very important with this Shelbys history as they took photographs of the car that you can still see the same details in the car as it stands today. Take note to the same tires bought at Sears in 1974 and the paint blemish in the bottom right passenger door in the photographs with the car today. The original cardboard early 1970's floormats from Greenville Bank when the car was for sale on Harold's lot are still in the car today!Harold drove the Shelby around again in the end of 1974 but died from a coronary in 1975 the same year he and Betty were building a new house and large barn. He never got to work in his brand-new barn or live in the brand-new brick home that he and Betty were in the midst of building, Gene Weyant said of his uncle. Someone, probably Betty, took the Shelby to have its oil changed before the car was put into permanent storage. Between 1976 and 2016, only about 2,000 miles were added to the cars odometer.More than two years before she passed away, Betty produced a sh box of skeleton keys to the barn. Id always suspected there might be cars in there, Gene said. It took him and his wife, Wanda, a long time to locate the proper key to open the barn, which was chock full of items his aunt and uncle collected over the decades. The barn was built with a secondary, windowless smaller space within, which is what Gene went to check first. After moving several items and cardboard pieces in his way, Gene found himself staring at the nose of a car he did not immediately recognize.I got a cardboard corner up and saw the grill of a Shelby but didnt know what it was at first, he clarified. Id seen Shelbys on the road but not up close. Id never seen a front end like that.After doing some Internet research, Gene learned the cars identity. Its in absolutely original condition white with black seats. I thought, We really have something like this? At that time thats all Gene could see. He and Wanda still needed to find a way to unlock the door to the separate space.Gene wasnt the only who suspected the barn might have cars in it. Mark Wolf, who lived across the street, said he had seen Betty open the barn garage doors for years to get out and put away a lawnmower but he couldnt see any cars because of the other items inside. It was rumored there was a Mustang in there but not a Shelby, Wolf said.Once the couple finally located the second key, they found the Shelby wasnt alone. A 1929 Model A Ford and a 1940 Ford Deluxe two-door convertible shared the space.Uncle Howard invested his money into real estate and cars, Gene recalled.Betty lived until September 2016. Gene and Wanda had the task of liquidating not only Bettys household belongings but the barn cars they found. A
