Auction Block: 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback

May 17, 2017

Category: Rides

It was several decades ago back in 1967 that Ford figured it needed to redesign their Mustang to accommodate larger engines that would keep them a competitive entity during this era of a quickly expanding consumer market. So, with that in mind, Carroll Shelby realized these new designs possessed the capability to house much larger engines than previously possible.

The decision? Load an engine inspired by the one that beat Ferrari in both the ’66 and ’67 24 Hours Of Le Mans, later referred to as the ‘Cobra Le Mans engine’. That very same engine, a 400hp 428 cubic inch V8, is mounted in this handsome ride that’s been professionally restored. Now, it rides atop a set of Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around Kelsey Hayes 10 spoke Shelby wheels, is painted Candyapple Red with White Le Mans stripes, boasts the original black interior, and still houses the original BJ and BK series carburetors. The Fastback is slated for auction next month where it’s expected to sell for up to $210,000. [H/T: Silodrome]
