Kurt Cobain’s In Utero Mustang sells for almost $500,000

The auction went down over the weekend at Julien’s in New York, and Cobain’s Mustang ended up netting a pretty big sum – a whopping US $340,000. That rounds out to just under half a million in Australian currency ($496,785 to be precise), which is probably a similar amount to what you’d pay for a shoddily constructed and extremely dodgy one-bedroom apartment in the city. 



We’re totally used to famous guitars like these fetching insane sums at auctions – I mean, David Gilmour’s Black Strat sold for over US $3.3 million a few months ago, so half a million really isn’t that much. However, the same Cobain auction also saw his famous green cardigan, worn during the filming of the band’s seminal MTV Unplugged performance, go for US $334,000 ($488,172 locally). Not bad for something you could nab from Salvation Army, huh?
