Try Dan Michaels 1-732-995-9218 NJ, he has one. And other oem/nos parts.

1 piece version
There are at least 3 one piece versions all used in different time periods during production.

I would suggest the conventual one piece nose without the built in headlight buckets and with fiberglass mat. The change over to the chop gun style mat was right around that time so a argument could be made for ether IMO. Fortunately those two types are the easiest to find and repair. Check with Branda and see if Cobra Fiberglass is still making one. It fit the best and could be modified to look like the assemblyline . FYI Most any complete one you will find will need substantial rework to repair and get to fit your car. To much to type to explain on repro modification procedure but if you get one of those repro you can call me for a more detailed explanation. Regardless of what you get it will need rework.  Even NOS ones I have seen required major work.

2/09/67 is the San Jose (Ford) build date, the Shelby completion date (which is who installed the nose/all fiberglass exterior parts) is 4/12/67.

What Bob said above is too true. 

You may want to consider re-repairing your original ;-)

The ones you have for sale in the for sale section will work on a 67 but not like SA assemblyline. The ones you have for sale are 68 style. The inner brackets are the same however the outer bumper brackets are made different for 67 Shelby.
