Title: 67 photos from the web
Post by: Richstang on January 19, 2019, 01:40:06 PM
I've been checking out some of the Facebook Shelby & Ford pages and there are quite a few really cool "Vintage" photos of '67 Shelby's that I wanted to share here and maybe discuss.

A fellow named Duffy Matt posts some really interesting photos over on "Vintage FoMoCo Drag Racing Photos"
Here's one '67 GT350 that immediately caught my attention with the large letter Goodyear tires.
Then I saw the upper scoop light...1 of about 21 Dark Moss Green cars with the USLs. No other info posted.

Surprised no one commented on the DMG GT350 USL car above...

This next one is way over the top...another of Duffy Matt's posts. I think we've seen this car in other vintage photos painted in other less obnoxious colors.
Anyone know the Shelby VIN #?

Richstang, great idea for a thread ! here's "The Judge" in a more subtle hue, I'm sure some one here will come up with the #.

Hey Mike...that's the one I was thinking of. Looks like factory paint in your added photo.
I'm sure there are a few others of this "The Judge" or "Judge" out there too.

here's a few I have in my files, I might have pulled them from the old forum ? you can date some of them by other cars in the shots.

Richstang, are we sticking to '67 Shelbys, or do same year Mustangs qualify ?
Title: Re: 67 photos from the web
Post by: Richstang on January 21, 2019, 11:28:30 PM
My thought was just '67 Shelby's (that's why I posted it in this section).
I wasn't going to limit my posted photos to drag cars. That just where I started.

On the “Snake Bite” can anyone read the last name (Carl -----)?
For the “N.T. Yowel Movers” there is nobody with that last name in the registry
“The Judge” appears to be driven by Glenn Shaw. There are some Shaw’s, but none named Glen.

I'm not 100% certain, but it looks like Dark Moss Green in my eyes.
I tried some color adjustments to the photo. No matter what changes I made it always has that green tint to the paint.

That's a nice COLOR photo of #2369. I've only found B&W photos at Daytona, never any in color. I'd like to know the source too, if you can recall it Jim.

This is a really sharp B&W rear view on Getty Images.

That looks like a bigger problem than hood fitment at Sebring. Maybe that latch gave out and the hood pins are all that's holding it in place.
It looks a lot tighter in the Daytona picture.

Nice photos Mike!

I remember that one posted on forum 1.0. There was an article written about #2119 in Mustang Monthly Dec 2002.
The owner Brad did a great job weathering the fiberglass nose to look as aged as the rest of the car by 2015.

That sure look good, even with the wheel covers! It's hard to tell if it is night in the front or Dark Moss in the back.
Here's another photo of this GT500.

Don't know what the 6 stood for. He owned a business in Marion, OH. Many times business owners/families get
plates all the same but with numerals for the "fleet". Just guessing. That pic was taken between Marion, OH and
Mid Ohio, June 1968 on our way to the Trans Am/SCCA Nationals. Tom was racing that weekend. Don't remember
what car...I think a 289 BP Cobra. At Indy SAAC Convention Tom said that GT 500 could "pass everything except
a gas station!

Tom thanks for those pics of the Yeager '67, and JD for colour correction ! Yeager had quite a history with Shelby cars. He raced a GT350, Cobra and a Mustang notch, with which he helped Ford clinch the manufacturers championship in the '66 Trans-Am series.
Not to side track the thread, here's a pic of his Cobra, maybe that's on the trailer behind the '67. any one know the CSX ?

Nice find Mike!

It appears there were 29 white with parchment '67s built.
Only three white GT350s were made, completed in March.
The rest (26) were white GT500s (I suspect this one in the photo is too).

The Goodyear large letter tire is unexpected on a parchment interior car.
The white parchment cars don't get completed by SA until late January well past when the tires end in production.
This may be a wheel swapped car...unless the Large Letter Goodyear tires were available as replacements?
I was under the impression the molds were changed when they switched to the small letters.


EDIT: Since the photo was taken in 1970, in my narrow blinders 67 focus, I forgot they used the large letters in '68 too.

Added by dealers or owners on '67's.

Stripes by the factory (Shelby American) or Dealers in '65.  (These were a tip-of-the-hat to Briggs Cunningham a his cars that competed in competition in the '50's racing around the world and the fact that White with dark blue were the national colors of the USA in international racing).

Stripes on '67's appeared in ads prior to the cars being released, there was a one-page and two-page version of the ad - one ad is the version you posted above.  will locate and post the other ...

Here is the ad you posted in color...

and the (Autolite) 2-page version illustration of two Shelby's and a Jag racing...

Post by: Richstang on January 30, 2019, 06:43:19 PM
I've never seen proof of a '67 with factory or dealer installed Lemans stripes. I'm still looking.

There is a photo of a display at Road America / Elkhart Lake, WI showing a White '67 with lemans stripes, a Nightmist Blue '67 without them, and the GT40 P/1064. I would guess the stripes were added by the dealer who put together the display, Northwestern Motor Cars; Milwaukee, WI.
The only one white car shipped there with wheel covers was the GT350 #1681. The SA Invoice and /or Production Order may tell us more.

The last time I spoke to Dave Mathews I asked again, have you found any '67s invoiced with stripes. The answer is no.

Artistic license is what I say about the illustration.

As I recall, even on '65s the original invoiced stripe cars was in the minority. I'm sure Howard has updated the numbers but I want to say 33%. As with anything it depends on whether one sees the glass as half full or half empty but I don't think it's a stretch to say they weren't very popular.

Where I'm from, I don't like anything that makes me more of a target. Stealth is the way I go. Even I could nail those stripes with a Laws rocket from 1/2 mile.

GT500, looks to be parchment interior, inboards, ding on the right by the headlight, are those the same lettered Goodyears ? parked at the Sebring 12 hour, 1969. has a pass on the right side of the window, maybe a competitor ?

One more, also dated March '69 like the one above, but doesn't show here when I resized, from the same series of pics, I think they might have been on E-Bay ? The person who shot these liked '67s.

I'm not sure if this is Sebring, or my previous post as a matter of fact ! looks like the person standing behind the V-Dub bus is looking at the track, could that be the banking in the distance ? or waiting for the john  ;)  There is that ball above the tent on the right, wasn't that at Daytona ? I was there for the 24 in '67 but can't remember it.

Nice follow-up to the other photo!!!
It appears to be a GT500 (1 of 26 in white with parchment interior).
The inboard grille is a vertical version, but still fits within all 26 SA completion dates.
I agree they look like the large letter tires.

Looking at my dealer list only two were sold in Florida, both to JD Ball Ford. (I'm not saying it's definitely one of these two, but the chances are good)

Hello,

This photo is an out-take from the Car and Driver photos that were taken of 0100 for their February 1967 issue.

Thanks for posting, the lime car in front of Euclid Auto in post #60, can't zoom in on the plate, but it could be an Ohio tag ? Euclid is a suburb of Cleveland. was there a Shelby dealer in Cleveland ?

Yes, there were two; Mayfield Heights and Parma.  (There was one in Akron too, near Goodyear Headquarters about 30 miles from Cleveland.)

1969 Ohio Plates were white with blue numbers/letters, note the missing front bumper and rather wide tires - two year old car?

Hey! I recognize that photo from the 2015 WA SAAC meet.
The faded dark green GT350 with the blacked out hood paint is #2119 (pictured earlier in this thread in reply #34 and Reply #37.)
I never figured out the ID on the shiny Dark Moss Green car.

JD, check out the SA completion date...1/9/67. It's too late for upper scoop lights. It will be very interesting if it actually has a flat gas cap emblem.
We need to see another rear view photo to be sure it's flat.

something similar to the car in the woods, was that called lace paint !   ::)  I guess it's an acquired  taste !

I think this is a '67,  just noticed, actually says so on the sign on the ground below the door. those added side markers look like the ones that were on Mopars in '68.

I recall lace used for certain look, as in a paint technique. That 1970 Chicago photo looks like good ole Candy Apple translucent paint over a base coat (likely a silver metal flake. The added shapes and stripes appear to be overlays with various fading techniques.

Most ALL of them were ahhh personalized or customized thru the years. The heavy right foot and a well placed emblem in the hole in the middle of the grill would be appropriate for the time. Maybe only slightly less these days because of perceived value, still love the car and picture! ;D

1967 Shelby GT500 Project Car

$79,900

Very Original Shelby Project Car, Just Out Of Long Term Ownership

For those of us whose dream cars come from yesterday, we can’t just walk into a car dealership and buy one. Cars aren’t built to last forever, but restoration can breathe new life into an older vehicle and make it look and run like new. This makes the car more valuable at a time of sale, guaranteeing its future collectible status. With a little time, money, and ambition, this Shelby GT500 is most certainly a worthwhile undertaking.

The Shelby offered here was purchased by its first owner Mr. Jon Moser on 8/29/67. It was delivered in the very popular Lime Gold with black interior. Also very nicely set up with the Kelsey Hayes Magstar wheels and inboard headlights. Inside, the interior is very complete, but is missing the factory radio. The Shelby specific 140 speed and 8k tach, door panels, seats, shelby steering wheel, factory roll bar with safety harnesses, shelby under dash gauges all are present. Upon on inspection one would see it retains the original factory applied paint in the door jambs, under hood and trunk. The undercarriage is very solid and original never having being undercoated. Looking closely one can see the factory paint markings, paint dabs as well as the factory primer dripping off the floors.

The car indicates that 49,113 miles have been traveled all during the very early years. The car would have an engine issue that would sideline it from further use. After the engine failure the car was put away until being sold in 1972 to a young man with big dreams of repairing the car and breathing new life back in it. He had only enough for a downpayment and would take a loan out for the balance that was co signed by his mother. As a welder by trade, with every paycheck he would make his payments until he repaid the loan in full. He would always take good care of his Shelby and keep it stored properly with the intention of restoring it to its former glory one day. The years went by, then marriage and the addition of kids would occupy his full focus. Always with the best intentions of getting to his Shelby one day. Finally the day came when the realization occurred that he would not be able to get to complete his car as he always hoped he would. He made a call to LMC to ask if we had any interest in purchasing his car and of course we did. A deal was completed and the car was loaded on a truck heading to LMC.

To the untrained eye, this vehicle by traditional standards would not be considered. However astute collector would know the potential of this limited production and very collectible Shelby GT500. In summary, this Shelby has a second chance on life, and it is up to the new caretaker to take the Shelby through onto the next chapter.

Were there metalflake grey cars with Parchment interiors!

That interior looks too dark to be parchment. (Maybe just a bit of light reflection on it?)
I was thinking it was a Nightmist Blue GT350. I don't recall it was ever ID'd on forum 1.0.

(I don't believe there were any factory painted Gray cars with parchment interiors)

The center grill lights are Lucas Flamethrowers. Side emblems are an American flag and a 1968
style Cobra...both on the car when I purchased from original owner.

This GT350 was only noted with 'Dave Z'. Not often you see a red faded paint '67.
I like it...except for the white walls. Sorry no ID # known on this one.

This one was in my files, might have been on forum 1.0 ? I can't tell if it's a 350 or 500, looks like a '72 Country Squire in the row behind, gives an idea of the time frame.

The front spoiler might help i.d ?

It also has Air Craft Landing Lights for the In Boards.

What's the story with this shot of a GT350 with Jerry Titus & child for crippled children. Did Shelby already support this then ? Might it have been a give away to raise funds ?

There was something about this on the old forum (or a book?).

IIRC Seem to remember the child was related to someone in the Shelby organization and they were helping raise awareness/funds?  Hopefully others will know for sure.

Here's a GT350 that was reported to be in Indiana for most of it's life. As of 2014 was in North Carolina and said to be fully restored to factory specs.

The Shelby VIN was not shared on the 'Instagram' post. Since I'm not a member there, I couldn't ask for more info.
These weathered cars have so much character.
