1967 Shelby GT350
Without doubt, the specification of Shelby for which I receive the most requests in today's market is the 1967 GT350 with a manual transmission.
Although long under-appreciated, the 1967 GT350 has experienced a drastic surge in popularity over the last few years because of the car's wonderful combination of specialized 1967 Shelby styling mixed with the high rev-ing and overall enjoyable driving characteristics of the 289 “K-Code” small block V8 which powers them. Though the hobby remains split with some enthusiasts preferring big or small block cars, nobody can deny the lively yet balanced feel that only a HiPo powered Shelby can deliver.
The car offered here is 1967 Shelby GT350 serial #3014 and the sales pitch is pretty darn straight forward on it as it checks all the major boxes that any astute collector is going to care about.
-The car retains its original engine, transmission, and rear end.
-The car retains all of its original Shelby fiberglass.
-The car retains its important 67 Shelby specific parts including steering wheel, roll bar, harnesses, gauge pod, and more.
- The car retains its original Shelby serial number plate and all Ford VIN numbers are present where they should be on the car. These Ford VINs have been confirmed with the SAAC registrar.
-The car has been meticulously restored by its last owner of nearly 30 years to SAAC/MCA Division 2 concours standards. It was shown many times upon the completion of the restoration in 2008 with results including a Gold at the 2009 MCA Nationals and a Gold at the 33rd Annual SAAC Spring Fling in 2010.
-The car is heavily documented in the SAAC Registry, retains its Ford 999 report documenting its original build, and retains a complete, unbroken chain of ownership with copies of all the original titles issued to the car including its original MSO!
-Finally, the car was featured in April 2009 issue of Muscle Car Review.
Since its days as a show car, #3014 has been sparingly driven by its owner of almost 30 years. The car is now offered for sale in “on the button” condition. She is a complete sweetheart to drive and yet still presents in impeccable condition.
