1967 was a banner year for Carroll Shelby’s Mustangs, as designer Chuck McHose conducted a comprehensive redesign for the updated GT350 and new GT500. Shelby Mustangs now had their own distinctive appearance, with a fiberglass hood (four inches longer than the stock version) and a dramatic new rear-end treatment. The makeover was highlighted by large intake scoops reminiscent of the Mk II GT40s that Shelby had shepherded to a 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans in 1966.

This GT350 is one of 1,175 examples built for 1967, and one of considerably fewer in such fine condition. This car is offered with important sales documentation, including the dealer invoice, window sticker, and sales contract. Desirably optioned with a four-speed manual gearbox, power steering, power brakes, shoulder harnesses, and a fold-down rear seat, this GT350 was truly purpose built, making it a real rarity among later Shelby Mustangs.

This handsome GT350 was gradually restored over a 20-year period of ownership by a longtime SAAC member. During this process, the car was properly refinished in the original color of Candy Apple Red and great attention was paid to factory-correct build details, such as chassis overspray and chalk marks.

Its impressive condition, documented history, and ideal specification, together with the knowledge that the 1967 GT350s were the last to be produced in Shelby’s workshop, make this a highly collectible example of an American performance icon.
