Built and released in June of 67, this GT500 was delivered in Nightmist Blue with a deluxe black interior and featured both Lemans and rocker striping and Kelsey Hayes Mag-Star wheels. The car was sold through Bill Davis Ford in Ohio to a buyer in Arizona where the car spent most of its life. The car sat dormant for some time, and was later restored by Surefire Restorations in Texas and is thoroughly documented with photographs.
Refinished in its original livery, the condition of this car is simply top notch. Panel gaps are correct and the doors close easily with a satisfying click. The chassis and underside of the car are finished to concours standards, clearly showing the level of workmanship that went into the restoration. Upon entering the cockpit its easy to see the upgrades that these cars received at Shelby, including the aluminum paneling across the dash and door panels, the Stewart Warner gauges under the dash, the roll bar and inertia shoulder restraints. The black bucket seats are in beautiful condition along with the dash, carpeting, and fold down rear seat. Other equipment includes an AM radio, courtesy lighting, air conditioning, tinted windows, trip odometer and tachometer.
The highly detailed engine compartment reveals the potent 428 cid, Police Interceptor engine adorned with the correct Cobra finned air cleaner and valve covers. With 10:1 compression and dual 600 Holleys, the Shelby massaged 428 engine is rated at 355 horsepower and 420 pounds of torque but was known to be well underrated. The 428 is backed by a 4 speed transmission and features power steering and power disc front brakes. This car is verified by the Marti Report to be 1 of 43 cars built in this color combination, making it one of the more rare cars available.
