Mecum Auctions 2012 Spring Classic Spotlight: 1967 Shelby GT500 428 CI, Automatic (Lot S251)

Shelby took advantage of the Mustang’s first redesign with the 1967 GT500, which took advantage of the new car’s big block capability. Finished in classic Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue, the example offered here has been a part of the SAAC family since the late 70s, when it took parade laps at SAAC 3 at Indianapolis in 1977. It retains its original 428/355 HP Police Interceptor engine which, along with its C6 automatic transmission, was rebuilt in 2006 and returned to its correctly detailed engine compartment. The undercarriage has also been refinished in correct Red Oxide primer. This classic 1967 GT500 comes with a detailed history including copies of all titles, a statement of origin from JD Ball Ford in Miami, FL, a Marti Report and a Ford 999 report issued in 2006.

Mecum Auctions will celebrate its Silver anniversary at Dana Mecum’s 25th Original Spring Classic Auction. More than 2,100 vehicles will cross the auction block May 15-20, 2012, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Ind.
