We are excited to offer this RARE '67 Shelby GT500 for sale. It is highly collectible and has an interesting history, also. This GT500 was ordered on 4-26-67 and the word "RUSH" is on the order sheet. It was delivered to Stockton Quincy Ford on 9-14-67. The vehicle is listed sold to RJM Leasing for Howard Duff (the actor) and owned and driven by him for over 28 years. He drove the car often to Warner Bros. studios and reportedly was then used as the original test car for the '68 movie "Bullitt." But the high cost of the Shelby vehicle deemed it impractical, since one vehicle would be torn up in the movie production. Seems movie budgets back then were held tighter than today's block busters.
The car was then sold to SAAC rep Bob Johnson by Howard's widow, Judy Duff. The car remains in mostly original condition, sporting its original engine (rare original emission system, carbs, accessories.) close ratio toploader, 10 spoke wheels (including 10 spoke spare) paint restored by John Schwadtner of Muscle Cars Unlimited for Bob Johnson. Has rare original roll bar seat belts, wood rim steering wheel, Fold down seat, 3:50 posi 9" rear end, original carlite glass, deluxe interior.
This car comes with all original paper work including order delete sheet, warranty card, title, California black plates, and invoices from Howard Duff for things as simple as wiper blades, also has Marti report backing all these claims. Car is rust free and is all original except for exhaust. Drives great and runs fantastic. A lot of fun and a hit at any auto event. Come see in person and you'll be impressed by this beauty.
