Re-emergence of the EXP-500 Fastback topic....

Recommended Posts

Anyone know anything about the supposed two EXP-500's that were stolen from Shelby back in 67-68? I cannot find ANYTHING on them. I know about the EXP-500 hardtop coupes... but I remember hearing something about there being 2 Fastbacks that were designated as EXP's....

Semi-related - a week or so ago, I saw something on Mecum's about them having a 67 EXP car - the first Shelby with a 427. It still had the original tires on it.

That was the Goodyear commissioned GT-500 Super Snake. Never heard of an EXP500 fastback, only the Green Hornet and Lil Red.

Hot red was the 67 convert and the history of that one is questionable to say the least. The styles family says they own it and have restored a car that is a 67 model convert. Now is it the real one; who knows I have heard stories that the original was crushed. it was almost 50 years ago and not a lot of records were kept form that time. I do believe that there was a EXP GT500 vert in 67, but is it still in one piece is the question.

I read about a 67' vert that went back to the factory and was turned into a 68' (ugh) and then taken back to 67' glass, is that the one you mention?

Yes that is the one andit did get sent to Detroit as a 68. In the 90s the volo museum says they bought it and restored it to a 67 (as well they built a clone of it). It has since been aquired by the Styles museum. They restored it first to a 68 at first, as they could not not find proof that is was originaly a 67. They have since found proof that Carroll was driving a red 67 Gt500 vert in December of 66 and have now restored it to a 67. I believe this is the one that was on display at SAAC.

Now last month I got in to a discussion with a good friend of mine about the car on display at SAAC. My friend saw the car at SAAC and his opinion on the car, is that it was not the original. I was sad when he told me he believes that the original was crushed. My Friend was a personel friend of Carroll's for years and knows more about Mustangs than anyone I have ever met.

I have resined myself to the fact that, I cannot beleive 100% the car still is around. :cry:

The Volo car I saw is now updated to '68 prototype specs and was at Carlisle last year. A ton of money was spent on unique items to the car and it is a '67, but was only goven EXP500 striping when it was put in '67 specs. It now wears GT500 striping.

Doesn't the car have a traceable VIN showing it as 67'?

 

Was it really a Shelby.

The Vin was removed by ford before delvery. Link to the Styles docs(http://stylescollection.zenfolio.com/p418557326/h39d05383#h39d05383). Shelby did make a one 67 vert, but is this the car? A lot of stuff went on back then, there is a lot of stuff Carroll would not talk about, and Carroll signed a lot of stuff over the years.
