Description:

1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang

You're looking at a real-deal, ull matching and fully restored 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. These coupes have the rare distinction of being the first year for the big block, nd the last year to be built in California. This one is a well-known vehicle that you can view as car #2802 in the Shelby Registry. Carroll Shelby turned a handful of Mustang fastbacks into a something that was distinctly all his own. There's just no mistaking the Shelby look. The custom fiberglass hood; the functional side scoops; the molded rear deck lid; and the sequential taillights - it all makes an impressive statement. We have the receipts to show that in 2009 this car went through an $85,000+ restoration to make sure this one stayed at the top of its game. Nothing is out of place, he Lime Gold paint is pristine, nd the panel gaps are concours-worthy. It's even wearing the expensive, nd correct, oodyear Speedway small letter tires. Remember, 967 was the last year these 1st generation Mustangs were transformed at the Shelby's own California factory, fter that these were coming out of Michigan. So this car really does have an unbeatable race-inspired pedigree. The black bucket seat interior is clean and pristine, ncluding the seat covers, oor panels, nd dash pad. Basically this one feels factory correct right down to the floormats. It wouldn't feel like a proper first-year GT500 without features like the woodgrained three-spoke steering wheel, oll bar, ull harnesses, nd full gauge cluster, ncluding the oil pressure and alternator readouts below the AM radio. Check out the included Marti report, verything is as it should be right down to the folding rear seat.Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. This is Ford's big 428 cubic-inch V8 borrowed from the Police Interceptor package. This is believed to be the original motor from Shelby, nd it still carries all the great Cobra pieces on the fined air cleaner and valve covers. This engine has not been overly dressed like some chrome king GT500s out there, nstead this is dressed to impress with its originality. This level of factory spec also means this motor is carrying the correct aluminum intake manifold topped with dual inline Holley 600 CFM four-barrel carburetors. 355 horsepower? Yeah, e all knew that factory rating was a joke. The GT500 was a great car on the road thanks to a beefed up version of the Mustang's GT package, ut that's just the tip of the iceberg for this car. It might be concours-worthy, ut you don't have to be afraid to drive it anywhere because it's very easy to maneuver with power steering, ront disc brakes, nd the factory-optioned C6 three-speed automatic transmission.This is the ultimate snake-bitten Mustang, nd it has all the right history, ocumentation, nd presentation to be an award-winner. Too bad you, ou may just be too busy enjoying this collectable to attend the shows. Own a piece of Shelby history... Call today!!
