    EXP, in the case of the 1968 Ford Mustang you see above, stands for Experimental. You see, this is one of the cars used by the Shelby American team in the development of a long list of classic Shelby Mustang models.

    The car, powered by a 390-cubic-inch V8 engine and known internally as The Green Hornet, underwent a huge number of upgrade sessions that saw it receive experimental fuel injection, independent rear suspension and unique disc brakes. That's right, a Ford Mustang with IRS!

    In a somewhat baffling turn of events, despite a top bid of $1.8 million, The Green Hornet's reserve price wasn't met, meaning it stays with its current owner for at least one more auction cycle. Have a good look at our image gallery above, and be sure to watch the video below that shows all the fast and furious bidding action. You can also see some additional live footage here from Speed.

    Video and images available at link.

    wow wonder what the reserve was if 1.8 million didn't get it.

    Love the color!

    I love the exclusivity of that car, but I've never really liked the non fastback/convertable Stangs myself. I agree with Andrew too, love the deep green!!

    Maybe if it had a 428/427. I think the 390 killed it.
