1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Description:

Here is a solid original black plate California car, it was sold new in Laguna Beach California, where it remained with the 1stowner until 2005. The second owner Pat Hoxie of Florida purchased the car in 2005 off of EBay. The car was being sold by Peterson Museum on the behalf of the original owner’s widow, her husband, Lawrence Lydick, passed away 10 years earlier in 1995. Pat Hoxie meticulously maintained the car and has driven it approximately 2,000 miles during his 13 years of ownership. Mechanically the car runs out very strong. Pat thought the car to be the fastest and best driving of his vintage Shelbys, much more impressive than his 68 GT500 KR. Upon driving it myself I was quite impressed, the car is pretty original with reportedly one repaint, probably done back in the 80’s. The interior is original showing the patina of being a 50+ year old. When you look at the engine compartment you see the original California smogstill in place, just as it was when it left the factory assembly line in 1967. The floors are extremely solid, I took pre-clean and wiped off the 50 year old undercoat from the main section of the floor to reveal the original red oxideprimer. Before Pat and I worked a trade we drilled out one of the rivets from the original Shelby tag for the first time to get the Ford VIN underneath. This is the only way to confirm the numbers match. You cannot get a Marti Report without providing both sets of numbers. The Marti Report confirms that these are a match and that the car is correct. The car was sold new at South Coast Motors in Laguna Beach California, it has 129,352 miles on it. The original owner reported that the engine was rebuilt in 1988 when the car had 122,400 miles on it, that was 30 years ago. It has been driven about 7,000 miles since. This is not a trailer queen by any means, but there is a lot of fun and enjoyment left in this vintage big block Shelby. You can enjoy it just as Pat did in its present condition or it would be a great candidate for a cosmetic restoration. I set my price below what I see people asking for tribute cars. This is the real deal with supporting documents and ownership history since new. Next to the 1965 GT350 it is probably the second most valuable of all the early Shelbys. It is the only year and last year that Shelby personally built a big block 428 with 2 x 4’s GT500. The 68 thru 70 models were built at Ford with only a single 4 barrel. The car comes with its original owner’s manual, sales brochure, Deluxe Marti Report, and ownership history. NO TRADES, NO OFFERS, THE PRICE IS FIRM, SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY.
