67 photos from the web
« 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 ?

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.

#875 on a parade lap at Riverside in 1968.  Posted in Hot Rod last year.

  Richstang:  Are you sure that, in the first photo, that the color is not Midnight blue?

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.

Here's another on I had in my files, Oliver Sudden '67 GT500. The board behind is an ad for Robie Ford, they were in Dorchester MA. Don't know if this car is from that  dealer ?

Look at how close the GT 500 Fender Emblem is to the edge of the Fender.

Hah "Oliver Sudden"  reminds me of "Oliver Closeoff"
 :P
Could be an early photo of the car with the Goodyear small lettered tire on a steel rim.
