This is a terrific 1967 Shelby GT500 that is a largely original car that has been sympathetically restored as needed.  With the 428 CID V8, four-speed manual transmission and Traction-Lok rear end, this is a great performing Shelby.

This Shelby has a well-known history and has been well documented in the Shelby Registry for decades.  It was built at the Ford plant on December 12, 1966 and then built at the Shelby plant on January 4th, 1967.  It was shipped to El Paso Auto Center on January 6, 1967 was first purchased on February 2, 1967 by Abelardo Quesada from El Paso, TX.  Later owners included Doug Liechty, Jan Orme from California, Danny Miller from Niland, California and most recently Jared Hare in Mesa, AZ.  This Shelby is now owned by one of our consignment clients.

We love the Lime Green metallic paint with the white owner added Le Mans racing stripes.  The paint appears to have many sections of original paint with added clear coat.  Overall, the paint and chrome is good to very good.  There is orange peel evidenced in the paint and a smaller upward dent in the drivers side front fender.  The chrome overall is very original and nice with a few small areas of imperfections.  It has the one piece slanted front grill with the center extensions for the headlights.  It has the Kelsey-Hayes 15-inch Magstar wheels and the functional side brake scoops.

The black interior is very nice and is said to be all original with the exception of the black carpeting.  The condition of the interior reflects a car that has been well cared for.  The interior looks very sharp and has a consistent patina as the rest of the Shelby.

The engine compartment looks very well detailed.  The 428 CID with dual-carbs is said to produce close to 400 hp.  The details in the engine compartment look very correct and original.  This Shelby is equipped with power disc brakes, power steering, the shoulder harness and the four-speed manual transmission.

This Shelby is in our Phoenix, AZ showroom.  For more information and details, call, text or email Daniel Folk at +1.917.890.4230 or daniel@classicpromenade.com.

The legendary Carroll Shelby, who famously built and sold the iconic Cobra, had the idea to apply the Shelby magic to Ford’s hot new Mustang. It was a match made in heaven.

The legendary Carroll Shelby, who famously built and sold the iconic Cobra, had the idea to apply the Shelby magic to Ford’s hot new Mustang. It was a match made in heaven. Nineteen sixty-seven brought a mildly recontoured Mustang body. Since the new body shell was designed to accept Ford’s 390-cubic-inch big-block engine, Shelby dropped the Interceptor 428 into the pony car’s engine bay and added a dual-carb intake, creating the top-of-the-line GT500. Although conservatively rated at 355 horsepower, its actual output was closer to 400 horsepower, with an impressive 420 foot-pounds of torque. The GT500 looked the part, too. It had a special front end with a unique hood scoop and grille-mounted driving lights, which gave the Shelby Mustang an unforgettably aggressive demeanor. In the back, rear-quarter scoops and a rear spoiler where added. The stock Mustang taillights were replaced by rectangular units and sequential turn signals lifted from the 1966 Thunderbird, giving the car an even more powerful presence. Additionally, air scoops were added into the side coves ahead of the rear wheels. A roll bar with inertia-reel shoulder harnesses completed the competition flavor of the car.
