Finished in Wimbledon White over a black interior, this 1967 Shelby GT500 is rare thoroughbred as car number 1867 of only 2,048 examples produced. As we approach the 50th Anniversary of the iconic Shelby GT500, we’re reminded that 1967 was a big year for Ford’s Mustang and in turn for the Shelby lineup. The first ever body change to the Mustang meant a more aggressive appearance, its first real competitor – the Camaro and Firebird were coming out and the larger front end could now accommodate a big-block Ford motor. Shelby introduced the GT500 with a 428 Police Interceptor motor making the GT500 ready to take on the competition. The 1967 Shelby GT500 is so influential that design elements of the 1967 model were used in today’s Shelby GT500s.
This example in particular is very well equipped with its original 428 dual-quad motor with correct block casting, topped with the correct ‘BJ’ & ‘BK’ carbs, upgraded with a period correct Toploader four-speed manual transmission, along with original and correct features and options including power steering, power brakes, Stewart-Warner gauges, comfort weave bucket seats, factory 5-spoke Kelsey-Hayes wheels, wood-trimmed steering wheel, and functional factory roll bar finished in its original color of Wimbledon white with blue stripes. This GT500 was purchased in 2008 for the Noble Muscle Car collection and displayed till 2015 in the Midlife Auto Muscle Car museum. In 2015, the car came to Dallas, where Mr. Noble occasionally drove the car. The car has been stored in a climate-controlled garage since arriving in Dallas.
