Sammy Hagar sells Shelby GT500 Coupe 2007 Mustang to fan

Red Rocker and car collector Sammy Hagar has sold his Shelby GT500 Coupe 2007 Mustang to a fan.

Hagar first put the car up for sale on Saturday, writing “I bought another car recently and have run out of space! Instead of letting one sit outside I've chosen to sell one and chose this beast! But, I don't want to put it up on Barrett-Jackson and see it get marked up - I'd rather see a Redhead driving it and sell it at blue book! I bought this Shelby new and have driven it very little (low miles), plus it's been driven by Mike Anthony and Chad Smith during the recording of Chickenfoot III.”

The car has 2,920 miles on it, and was available for $36,000 on a “first come, first serve” basis.

A deal was done and confirmed by Hagar less than 48 hours later.

“The Shelby is sold- thx for all of the offers!,” Sammy tweeted. “I'm going to hand over the keys to one happy Redhead! Will try to snap some photos and share!”

In his sales offer, Hagar also promised to add some extra value to the package. "I will autograph the car and throw in some goodies!”, including a trunk full of Red Rocker memorabilia.

The unknown buyer will pick it up for an in-person handoff of the keys from Sammy.
