I'm still looking for the '67's that made in into the concour classes, also the popular vote.
We could see there was a red '67 with outboards, in the background of one photo.

Here is a front shot of the one in Concours




Excellent 3/4 front view Jeff!
Thanks

Pete and Rick, thanks for starting this thread and adding to it, wish I could have made it but circumstances prevented me from doing so, hope to be there in 2023.

Thanks again,
Dave

The two Jeff James restored '67's - both Gold!

Jeff said he was now retired - nice way to finish.

The red car for those who remember - was the car Ruben found in California and brought back to life and sold as a running car, there is a thread on the cars' find and his progress with it.

Factory Engineering car...way cool



Did this '67 sell or does anyone know the asking price?  I believe Jason Billips finished/corrected  or did the final detailing on it before the convention.
Not that car . You should be able to contact Shelby Parts and Restoration for information on the blue car in the picture.

I think this thread is missing two of the concours 67s - one lime and one moss green

Pictures of the Moss green was posted. Here are the two Lime GT-350 entered and both winners of Gold in Division II

Owners Tom Gilliam and Shane Fowler




And another of the one shown in Reply #27

I would love to hear more about the engineering car.  Has the story been published?

I believe the notes say the car was used for "302 emissions testing"

I discussed this with a few guys and the consensus was it's unlikely Ford would have needed to test a standard 302, so possible they were testing another version of the 302 in this car. Maybe something like a 302 tunnel port? Like many of the engineering cars the known history is just an outline.

The car was shown with a K-code motor.

The car was judged as it left Shelby American - as a standard '67 completed car prior to any emissions testing.
