Rare 1967 Shelby GT500 to be Auctioned at Upcoming Barrett-Jackson Show

1967 Shelby GT500

There's nothing quite like a classic Shelby GT500 Mustang. One such car, a rare 1967 GT500 with only 9,841 miles on the clock, will cross the block at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event later this month. Best of all, the car is being sold at no reserve.

"This car was one of the first GT500's ever produced by Shelby American," said its current owner Stephen Becker, CEO of Planet Cobra. "From its design and performance to its heritage and history, there's truly nothing like it. It is a testament to the uniqueness of this special survivor Shelby that Barrett-Jackson will feature it as they honor Carroll Shelby this year."

The GT500 features a Nightmist Blue exterior with black interior. Beneath its hood you'll find a 428 Police Interceptor engine and a dual four-barrel carburetion. The car has its original paint, wheel, tires and drive-train. It includes all original documentation including New Jersey license plates and a 1970 inspection sticker. Read more.

In 1970 I was driving a brand new loaded 69 Mach 1, 428 CJ. A friend wanted to trade me his 68 Shelby Cobra GT 500 KR with 38k miles.
Like an idiot, I said no! I drove that wild ride for a week. It was incredible. I don’t know what I was thinking. They were both the same color to boot!
AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!
