Just after the Mustang’s initial introduction, famous auto racer Carroll Shelby developed the Mustang into a high-powered track racer, the GT350. A host of external, internal, and mechanical modifications made the GT350 the terror of racing circuits across America, where Shelby’s brainchild took three straight SCCA B-Production championships from 1965 through 1967. Based on the redesigned new Mustang for 1967 and now capable of accepting Ford’s powerful big-block V-8s, Shelby American’s new 428-powered GT500 was conservatively rated at 355 horsepower with actual output closer to 400 ponies with 420 ft-lbs of pavement-scorching torque! Praised by Car and Driver for “…doing with ease what the old 350 took brute force to accomplish,” the GT500 added a Grand Touring persona to Shelby’s rampant stallions.

Stylistic enhancements for ’67 were led by Ford’s Chuck McHose in collaboration with Shelby American. A special front end with twin hood scoops and a pair of big European-style driving lights mounted in the radiator grille gave the Shelby Mustangs an unforgettable visage. Out back, rear-quarter scoops, functional brake-cooling scoops, a rear spoiler, and turn signals lifted from the new Mercury Cougar added a powerful presence. The interior featured Mustang GT-level appointments plus a 140-mph speedometer and a roll bar with inertia-reel shoulder harnesses. Today, Shelby’s 1967 cars also represent the end of an era as the last built before production was transferred to Ionia, Michigan under direct Ford Motor Company control for 1968 through 1969. Just 2,048 examples of the potent and highly sophisticated performers were built in all.

Offered here today is a 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback showing just 77,000 miles on it. The exterior is clad in highly attractive Nightmist Blue paint, which further accentuates the formidable overall look of this GT500. Combine this with racing stripes and the factory Shelby 10-spoke wheels, and it becomes very obvious that this car means business. Looking at the interior of the car will reveal the all original black vinyl upholstery and carpeting. It is a well-known fact that Shelby cars were not known for being heavily optioned, however this GT500 is equipped with power steering and power brakes as well as a functioning factory AM radio. Other features include a fold-down rear seat, an all original roll bar, and factory-installed shoulder harnesses. This car even retains its original Shelby VIN plate, numbered at 2798.

Many collectors feel that the 1967 Shelby Mustangs were the last of their kind because of the Shelby plant’s closure later that year. The GT500 was, in its day, the most powerful Mustang ever built. It combined tremendous performance with an intimidating look that made the Mustang’s transformation from a pony car to a muscle car ever-so-noticeable. The Shelby GT500 wasn’t designed with practicality, family compatibility, or comfort in mind. From the very beginning, the Shelby Mustangs were built to racecar specifications, and this was reflected in their performance. While the Mustang will always be considered iconic, the Shelby GTs are undoubted high-performance and collectible legends.
