When Ford revamped the Mustang for 1967 to accommodate its big block V-8, Carroll Shelby took the opportunity to capitalize on the development, and the mighty GT500 was born. While Mustangs were limited to a 390/320 HP engine, Shelby took his usual liberties in the horsepower department and dropped in a modified Police Interceptor 428 CI V-8, adding the 427’s cast aluminum intake manifold, dual inline Holley 600 CFM 4-barrel carburetors, Shelby finned aluminum valve covers and oval air cleaner and other touches to produce a conservative rating of 355 HP.
