Highly unusual that a 67 Shelby that late in production would have factory inboard lights.

It's also interesting to see an early style steering wheel (the smaller boots) as well.
Nothing beats a classic!

Lots of photos, very "revealing" seller.  (Interesting manual choke on a GT500 and a few other things)

Might be because he posted a fair number from an visit done on the car earlier plus ones he took in responses to request at that time. ;)

Seller was pretty forthcoming with what they did know IMHO

I saw quite a few in the '70s that were changed over by previous owners. So many that I'm always skeptical of an inboard car.

I'm shocked, no heads have exploded yet over the "Caution Fan" sticker.

              Wonder, if they will replace, the clutch pedal, rubber pad. Looks kind of ugly ::)

Sure the next owner will make their choices as each of us does. But as we're reminded here all the time not everyone is looking for a pretty  or perfect car. :) Not sure if it is currently there or not but it appears from the pictures it was not there when the pictures were taken in the front yard and then there in the later pictures taken in the back yard

Couple of pictures from the ad

I noticed that too, but it is there in some of the photos but not all.

Looks like a nice driver.

I know things change, but I wonder why a "dream car" is now for sale.

Good evening Gents,

Thought I would drop a line and say hello. I wanted to take a minute and gush about my new dream car. Finally got a chance to pull the trigger on a '67 Nightmist Blue GT500. I'm generally tech saavy but I'm oddly finding difficulty uploading my photos directly to this post.

I'll include a Google Drive link to the car here instead...

I was urged by fellow SAAC member Kasey (Luck3177) to say hello! I look forward to being a regular on here.

Initially SA tried to send outboard cars to the states requiring them . That was hit and miss as far as shipping to dealers given historical observations. I talked to one of the workers who's job it was to install grills and he confirmed that after the last pallet of inboard grills were used they switched over to outboard grills and headlight components.SA used up inventory as more of a imperative  regardless of  SA started converting over approximately 800 cars previously .Not being finished in order can explain a few things but that is typically for later items being installed on lower VIN cars and not the reverse. With all of that said which is more likely a PO modification or a later car with a early feature conservatively 500 cars out of sequence ?  ;)
