'67 GT500 on BaT
« on: August 15, 2020, 01:35:34 PM »


This 1967 Shelby Mustang is one of 2,048 GT500 fastbacks produced for the model year and was completed on January 24, 1967. The car was sold new by Stark Hickey Ford in Royal Oak, Michigan, and was purchased by the seller in 2006 as a project from Masonís Hot Rods of Spartanburg, South Carolina. A multi-year rotisserie restoration was subsequently carried out and included a repaint in black with white stripes. Power comes from a rebuilt 428ci Police Interceptor V8 that is backed by an optional Select-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission. Other factory options include the Extra Cooling Package, power steering and brakes, a tachometer, shoulder belts, and a fold-down rear seat. About 1,000 miles have been added by the seller since the restoration was completed in 2013. This GT500 is now offered with a copy of its original invoice, an Elite Marti Report, restoration photos and invoices, and a clean Georgia title in the sellerís name.

The GT500 was added to the Shelby lineup in 1967 as a higher-powered alternative to the GT350. Chuck McHose and Peter Brock were tasked with styling the 1967 Shelby Mustangs in order to visually distinguish them from other Mustang variants. This included adding a fiberglass trunk lid with an integrated Kamm-type rear spoiler, an elongated fiberglass hood and nose extension, horizontal sequential taillights, and functional brake ducts on the rear quarter panels.

This example was originally painted Lime Gold and during the restoration was refinished in black by Masonís Hot Rods of Spartanburg, South Carolina. Exterior features include white Rallye stripes and center-mounted high beams. The finish and trim are shown up close in the photo gallery below.

I was wondering, were the upper shock tower mounts left unpainted at any time during production?

On the few cars that missed out getting the specified reinforced upper shock brackets the non reinforced upper brackets would also be painted black.  Painted upper shock brackets was a typical SJ built Mustang trait . It is very unlikely that unpainted shock brackets were original on the car. The unpainted versions were typical at the Dearborn and Metuchen plant with the exception of the reinforced type which were normally painted because the welding done would flash rust if not painted.

Weird the invoice seems to mention two cars, a '67 Shelby and a '68 Shelby. There are charges for a '68 Shelby gas cap and race gas for the 67 and 68.

The shock stays in place. You need to twist the beehive to clear the shock ears. No BFD.  ;)

Since I know not of the 1967...

Wasnt there a Moss Green car for sale for 300,000 that was a good deal?

Is there really that much difference?

I suspect the Dark Moss Green car you are referring to was VIN #00002.
A single digit early car.
It was on another level beyond the normal values.

Even if it were a double digit car there are numerous differences in production from a mid model year build.
