Ah, the ‘60s. Bell-bottoms, Elvis, The Beatles, and Andy Warhol were some of the grooviest things that came with the era of free love. And it also wouldn’t be the ‘60s without a bright red Ford Mustang speeding down the road with the poppin’ sounds of “Twist & Shout” blasting. The Shelby Mustang is a high performance version of the classic Mustang. The model was built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1968, and then from 1969 to 1970 by Ford. This 1967 Ford Shelby GT350 shining in Nightmist Blue may not be the iconic red Mustang, but if it’s power you’re looking for in a muscle car, this baby can deliver. It is a souped up Mustang after all.
Shelby American is well-known for its high performance parts and modified cars. Since 1962, Shelby has had a long and decorated history in the automobile industry. Shelby has won many races like the World Sportscar Championship and FIA World Championships. The company also supported Ford in winning the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans as the first American constructor ever with the mid-engined Ford GT40’s.
There were many upgrades Shelby did to distinguish its higher-performance version from the Mustang. The coupe has its original engine and transmission. It was powered by the solid-lifter 289 High Performance K-code small-block, and updated to 306 HP with a 715 CFM Holley carburetor and Cobra aluminum intake manifold. There was an extensive use of fiberglass, including a scooped hood, dual side scoops, a ducktail trunk lid, rear-quarter extensions, and a rear panel with horizontal 1967 Cougar tail lights. There were two versions of the car with different high-beam headlights placements. The first version had the lights on the grille’s center, which was illegal in some states. The second version uses outboard lights instead. The car rests on 10 spokes Shelby Aluminum wheels.
Drive in luxury inside and out. The GT350 is stunning in Nightmist Blue with white stripes and a black vinyl interior. The 1967 Shelbys have the Mustang’s Deluxe interior with aluminum trim, a fold-down rear seat, and an 8,000 RPM in-dash tachometer. Other additions include a wood-rim steering wheel, under-dash pod with Stewart Warner oil pressure, as well as ammeter gauges. A functional roll bar with shoulder harnesses is also a big feature of this car. The car came with the Mustang’s Competition Suspension as well. Progressive-rate springs, Gabriel adjustable shock absorbers, and a larger front sway bar gives this car a nice upgrade.
The 1967 Shelby GT350 number 1333 was restored in perfect condition in 2003. It has about 58,000 original miles. The car was dry climate stored in the Las Vegas area from 1967 to 2003. It was then moved to Spain from 2003 to 2018. The Shelby American Automobile Club’s Shelby Registry has full documentation of the car’s ownership history, so you’ll know all about this baby. This car has a certificate of authenticity from the Club as well. If you’re on vacation in Spain, you can stop by and see this classic muscle car for yourself. The vehicle can be drooled over in Auto Storica’s facilities in Barcelona. Auto Storica is a premium restoration center. The company has restored many other beauties, including the 1979 Ferrari 512 BB, 1992 Cadillac Allante, and more! Learn More
