This particular car, Shelby No. 01807, was invited and displayed at the Carlisle All Ford Nationals 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Shelby, won first place out of all 1967 Shelbys entered in the Lehigh Valley Regional Meet, and scored a SAAC 40 Concours Division win, for starters.
One of Few
The significance of that latter prize is easy to overlook, but you'd be silly to. "Very few genuine 1967 Shelbys achieve the points required for SAAC Concours wins," said Shelby Concours Judge Bob Gaines. And this is one of those few.
There are certainly many merits here that warrant that kind of prestigious prize. Starting with the Brittany Blue/Wimbledon White exterior that consists of mostly original sheetmetal, right down to the spot welds and original floors.
Under the hood, you'll find a numbers-matching 428/355 hp Police Interceptor V8 sporting the original Holley 600 cfm carbs, aluminum intake manifold, fuel pump, alternator, radiator, and brake booster.
That big mill mates to the rebuilt original Toploader 4-speed manual transmission, sending power back to the original Positraction rebuilt rear. Those 15x7 10-spoke wheels are original, too, and are wrapped in period-correct Goodyear Polyglas tires.
Much of the Deluxe Black interior has been refurbished, including the original trim, seat belts, gauges, and wooden Shelby steering wheel. In the back, you'll also find the original Shelby roll bar and inertia-reel shoulder harnesses.
This particular car also came equipped with power steering, power front disc brakes, an FM radio, clock, and remote driver’s mirror.
Impressively, this Shelby also retains its factory-installed fiberglass components, including the scooped hood, dual side scoops, ducktail trunk lid, and rear quarter extensions, all of which are in fantastic condition.
Following its top-notch restoration, this rare and historically significant Shelby has racked up only 180 miles. Now, it's going to make one Mustang fan very, very happy in the near future.
