All-Original 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500 Garage Find Gets Out after 30 Years
This green OG GT500 had been resting in a garage for about 30 years before the family of the late original owner—he reportedly bought the car new—came to the conclusion that the pony had to get some fresh air.
With multiple exterior and interior details appearing to be legit, this vehicle had a strong start. Oh, and would you look at that FE 428 ci (7.0 L) V8, which still has its pair of four-barrel Holley carbs on!
A brief trip underneath the Mustang revealed a tranny-located VIN that was verified with the help of a ’67 Shelby registrar and showed the original nature of the machine, albeit not before a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.
Alas, the new owner of the Shelby reportedly passed away, preventing the YouTuber to document the revival of the legend until the very end. Even so, the man tells us the vehicle turned out to be an all-original 1967 GT500 and that it was in store for a proper restoration.
And with just 2,048 units of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 having been built for 1967, it’s uplifting to see this example receiving the attention it deserves.
