ESTIMATE: $140,000 - $160,000 
Flush with the success of the all-conquering GT350 of 1965 and ‘66, Shelby unleashed a big block version in 1967. The GT500 took advantage of the 1967 Mustang’s deeper bulkhead to pack in a modified version of Ford’s 428 CI Police Interceptor V-8, which Shelby improved to 335 HP with an aluminum intake manifold, dual 600 CFM Holley 4-barrels and finned cast aluminum Cobra air cleaner and valve covers. As this example demonstrates, the ’67 GT departed from previous practice with the use of fiberglass body pieces and more unique trim to further separate it visually from stock Mustangs, most forcefully in the aggressive front end treatment and the upturned rear deck lid. Presented in Dark Moss Green Metallic paint with White Le Mans stripes and a Black Deluxe Mustang interior, this GT500 Fastback combines its matching numbers 428/335 HP engine with a 4-speed manual and heavy-duty rear end. It was awarded First in Class and Best Shelby GT at SAAC 29 (Michigan International Speedway) in July 2004 and has taken First Place in Autorama shows. It is also one of six cars chosen by BASF’s Automotive Finishes for its worldwide annual calendar. Offered by its second owner and showing a believed-correct 51,000 miles, it features the late Carroll Shelby’s autograph on the dash above the glove box door with photos that include the present owner and his son.
