If the seller’s claims are true, this 1967 Shelby GT500 spent a month as a factory-built drag car before being sold as used Shelby Mustang. The details of the car’s interesting history lie in a Marti report that shows Ford engineers pulled this car from the assembly line and installed a 428 Cobra Jet engine, 4-speed transmission and a full roll cage. Then, after the drag tests were complete, the GT500 was sold to the general public where it received the care of a Mustang club president and the current owner, who has driven the car very little in his 24 years of ownership. 1967 Shelby GT500s—particularly in Dark Moss Green—are fantastic cars, but those with this kind of provenance are even better.
