This 1967 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 Fastback Coupe has a pretty specific rarity: it is one of only 11 Shelby American "Engineering" company cars produced in 1967. If you're a real muscle car guy, those stats might be awe-inspiring. They were awe-inspiring to at least one collector, who paid over $130,000 for it last week at auction. To me the distinctions are just a bunch of egghead words and numbers. But the GT500 itself, its near-perfect restoration and continued roadworthiness, that's pretty sick.

Carroll Shelby began manufacturing modified Mustangs in the mid-1960s, and completed this particularl model, chassis #0425, in 1967. It served as a Shelby American company car, one of only 59 with that designation in '67, and one of just 11 that were bestowed the "Engineering" title. It has inboard headlights, a 4-speed manual gearbox, and a very low 52,000 miles on its odometer.

In the mid-1980s the GT500 0425's owner commissioned a full body and mechanical restoration. Additional maintenance and rehab from a later owner has kept the car on the road for nearly 50 years. It currently features:

  • A 428ci (7.0-litre) V8 engine with original twin Holley four-barrel carburettors (unique to the '67 model year)
  • The original push-button Ford radio
  • Original door locks and keys
  • 4 x after-market Magstar alloy wheels (to original specification)
  • Included 5 x original (but un-roadworthy) Magstars
