I need to start searching some barns ;)

Whoever gets to work on that is lucky; that has to be a great feeling: when you finish restoring it.

:drop: Amazing!! That is a high-value center-high beam '67 GT500!!

The car really isn't in too bad shape. Most of the parts look to be rebuildable/salvagable. I'd have fun restoring that car.

These photos were taken at Shelby American. These trucks (2016 Shelby F150's built by Tuscany Motor Company)  are certainly Shelby's just like every other car bearing Carroll's name. If you want details make sure to ask Gary Patterson. He will be on the road most of this summer showing our cars off. He spearheaded this venture and has all the details.  


That's not correct. Carroll signed a licensing agreement with Ford for them to use the GT350 nameplate. Just want to keep things factual. Carroll not only knew about the Ford built GT350 but gave Ford his blessing to do so.




for the record, SAI doesnt build anything. they MODIFY cars that the Ford staff engineers and BUILDS. Like it or not, SAI is in the modification business using aftermarket parts (many of which are engineered by Ford, Ford Racing and Ford Performance). They are no more and no less a "Shelby" than those manufactured straight from the Ford factory.

I know, I know, I said #16 before, but that's what they told me. Now it's 13. Is it too late to send it back?

That's not bad at all. At least it's all together and mostly complete. My barn find of a '69 Mach 1 R code 4spd car was completely torn apart and the zip loc bags the guy put the small parts in completely deteriorated so I have buckets of hardware now. Hoping to start on that restoration in the next 2-3 years. It will be like putting together a puzzle or a very large model car. I've had plenty of practice on the 1/25 scale kits in preparation. LOL. :)

The 427 in my '70 was sitting next to the '69 in the barn and I bought it with the car with a set of NOS LeMans rods in the boxes still. They're now in the engine...

Now that takes me back to some good times, I had a 67 GT500 I hope it is still around and in better shape than that. The last time I saw mine was about 43 years ago I forgot alot of things about the car but seeing those pictures helped me to remember...thanks for posting them.

You know I may be alone on this, but I would rather spend my time and money trying to find a barn kept Shelby Mustang than investing into the lottery...
