 1967 Chicago Autorama:  I don't recognize the building.  So, might this had been help in Navy Pier?

rich,

Saw this on Flicker. Looks very similar.

That's certainly looks like a match, Dennis! The 2011 registry notes at least two cars in Alaska #0909 and #0942. Nothing in the footnotes mention custom paint and 0942 was said to last be seen in a race car configuration.

I also found two cars sold to an Alaska dealer "John Stepp's Friendly Ford; Anchorage, AK"; #0835 and #1324. Now there's four car to consider for the custom painted yard find! :(

One more from the web

Oddly enough I recently saw the same wrong emblem in the center of the grille on a Lime Gold car for sale. #2955

Rich,

I believe that John Stepp's Friendly Ford also received #1326.

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

Rich,

Thanks for questioning #1326. I did find how I made the error and have corrected my files to indicate it going to Dick Hinderman Ford Imlay City, MI.

This '67 GT500 was posted on LMC's site some time back. It looks like someone tried to update it to a pseudo '70 Shelby in the grabber orange.
Never did find the ID#.

I think LMC never releases the VIN.


Unless you buy the car.

Based on hints in the LMC description from October 2014, "purchased by its first owner Mr. Jon Moser on 8/29/67", my submission for this competition will be 67410F7A01905.
2nd owner of 67 GT500 #1183 since September 1976

NICE!!!
I looked on their website but nothing was listed for a description, just the photos to scroll through.
How did you find that info?

The first entry in my file is dated 6jul2014 and is as you describe, 19 photos and no text.

The second entry is dated 25oct 2014.  Same pictures but with text description added.

The links I saved appear to no longer be active.  Here is the added text from October 2014:

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 canít just walk into a car dealership and buy one. Cars arenít 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.
