Dreamy 1967 Shelby GT350 Mustang In ‘Nightmist Blue’ To Auction In Palm Beach

“Subtle” and “elegant” are perhaps not the first words that pop into one’s head with respect to the Shelby GT350 Mustang. Yet despite its aggressive air scoops on the hood, C-pillars, and rear quarters, this 1967 Shelby GT350 – soon to be up for grabs at Barrett-Jackson‘s Palm Beach auction event – fits the bill, what with its deep, dreamy “Nightmist Blue” exterior paint with white Le Mans stripes.

With a black interior, a four-speed manual transmission, and a 289 Ford “Hi-Po” V8 under the hood, this ’67 Shelby GT350 will go under the gavel next month, with no reserve. According to Hagerty, ’67 models such as this one can fetch more than $180k at the high end, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see this particular example go for roughly that amount. Clean, well-cared-for, and seemingly mostly original throughout, this 1967 Shelby GT350 features power steering and brakes, Magstar rims, a 9-inch rear end, and upgraded 2-barrel Ford carbs – three of them.

Beside that, its Nightmist Blue body appears to be anything but common, and it’s a color that we feel suits the sculpture of the car quite well.

Be sure to keep an eye on Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction, April 12th through the 15th, to see how much this 1967 Shelby GT350 pulls in at auction. Click here for┬ámore photos and info.
