    1967 Ford Mustang G.T. 500 - Rare Finds
    Hot Rod
    3/10/2015

    What really caught my attention was the price, written with a finger in the dust on the windshield: $7,500, then crossed out and marked down to $6,000. The wooden steering wheel inside the ’67 Shelby was probably worth that much.

    The price in dust, however, was a joke to attract attention. I saw the fastback in the vendor area at the Mustang 50th anniversary show in Las Vegas. Later, somebody at the 50th put a “10” in front of the $6,000 so the price read $106,000.

    Paul Kerner, who works for Scott Drake Enterprises, owned the muscle Mustang. He bought the car, as seen here in 1997, when he lived in California.

    I had a '66 convertible for a long time. I gave it to my cousin before I moved to AZ. Great car!

    Its amazing to think about it, but Hertz actually rented Shelby GT 350's back in the day. They were special Hertz editions called the Shelby GT 350H (for Hertz). They stopped renting them because guys would rent the cars, swap out the engines for ordinary Mustang GT motors and then return them.

    Cool.

    I don't see cars manufactured today still being around in 50 years. All that computer shit will die way before that. Sure, it makes the car better and safer for now, but also impossible to repair eventually.

    You're probably right but keep in mind that the world has changed since the Shelby GT 350 was available. Gas was 35 cents per gallon and insurance was not yet a problem for hot cars. The GT 350, as great as it was, was a heavy, inefficient gas inhaler that was great in a straight line but murder to handle on curves. Cars in 2015 are MUCH more efficient on fuel than the muscle cars of the '60s and they perform as well or better. My '13 Ford Taurus is no sports car but it's engine develops 288 hp out of a 3.5 liter 6 cylinder engine and gets 27 mpg highway driving.

    I have one.

    Had it since I was 15, and was restored and running when I was in high school. That was the last time it was running really.

    It's just been sitting for the last 25 years in my parents garage down the street. I never plan to get rid of it. That is my dad's 1963 Chevy Nova II, my mom was the original owner. With the 400 small block in it, she won't drive it anymore lol......

    One of these days I/we (the family) will get it back on the road, maybe a retirement project.

    Im looking at 100k to fully restore it right. The wife and I are trying to get the house paid off. We have no kids so I dont see it being a problem down the road.

    The Nova is done, and maybe the pic doesnt show it, but its beautiful. Pop takes it to car shows on the weekend. Much faster now than the little straight 6 that it came with lol.

    Btw big fan big fan shithead lol

    One reason the restore was delayed, was I started SCCA racing with BMW's. For the past 12 years my father and I have been traveling the country.....well the mid Atlantic area to Lincoln Nebraska.....

    The best we did was in 2010, I placed 6th at Nationals in my class, dropped to 10th in 2011, and wife wanted a new house in 2012, so the traveling stopped lol.

    2520lbs and the last dyno was 460rwhp....it's pretty quick....we did well with a unproven car in our class.


    What I have spent to prep this 2000 BMW Mcoupe I could have fully restored the Shelby.

    This one stays in my garage.
