1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback
As you stare and drool uncontrollably over this 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback, I will go ahead and remind you that about 50 years ago Ford figured out it needed to redesign their Mustang to accommodate larger engines. That proved to be the most inspired idea ever, and Carroll Shelby realized these new designs were capable of handling his unique way of delivering power and excitement. What resulted is pure magic on wheels.
An engine inspired by the one that beat Ferrari in both the ’66 and ’67 24 Hours Of Le Mans was fitted in the engine bay – a.k.a. the ‘Cobra Le Mans engine’. A 400-hp 428 cubic inch V8 hides beneath the fully restored exterior of this Mustang riding on a set of Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around Kelsey Hayes 10 spoke Shelby wheels. Showing off a Candyapple Red shade with White Le Mans stripes, this 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback shows off the original black interior alongside the original BJ and BK series carburetors. If you got $210,000 hidden in a shoebox throughout the house, this is the time to put it to good use.
