1967 Shelby GT500 Is A Nut And Bolt Restoration

Sometimes when people have a classic Mustang restored, the cars look like new, but the restorer doesn’t take the time to restore everything on the car. This 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 isn’t one of those cars. This 1967 Shelby GT500 has had a meticulous nut and bolt rotisserie restoration at Legendary Motor Car, the same company that is now offering the GT500 for sale.

The company says that it started the restoration with a very original 1967 Shelby GT500 and stripped the car down to its bare chassis to start. Every single component on the car was re-finished to OEM standard. The body of the car was block sanded, and gaps were filled to give a laser straight paint job that is better than ever applied to a factory 1967 Shelby GT500. The Wimbledon White with Blue stripes color scheme is the factory color of this particular car.

The paint was wet sanded and polished to end up with a concours quality paint finish. The floor pans are finished in the factory red oxide primer with body-color overspray. The undercarriage has the correct paint daubs and inspection markings. Power for the car comes from a 428 cubic-inch Police Interceptor engine rebuilt to stock specifications sending power through a 4-speed manual transmission. The engine bay has all the correct markings and stickers; even the correct paper tags hang under the hood. The interior is perfect and complete.

This GT500 has the correct 10-spoke aluminum Shelby wheels and the correct Goodyear bias-ply tires. The ride is fully documented as well. This Mustang is as close as you can get to walking into a Ford showroom in 1967 and buying a GT500 off the lot. Pricing is unknown, but you can bet this car won’t come cheap. Check out this gold 1968 Ford Shelby GT500 for another highly original classic.
