1967 shelby gt500 london 1

We don’t often see genuine Shelby examples go to auction outside of the US so it’s refreshing to see this lovely 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback in Nightmist Blue up for auction on September 7th at The RM Sotheby’s auction in London, England.

The car is powered by a 437 bhp, 462 cu. in. OHV Interceptor V-8 engine coupled with a four-speed manual transmission.

As you can see below the car has a great documented history and has been painstakingly and professionally restored. If you can make it over to London in a few weeks we’d highly suggest paying the fee to get to this auction. We may well see you there!

The car offered here, chassis number 1926, is documented by a Deluxe Marti Report, a copy of which is included on file, as having been built at San Jose, California, on 5 April 1967. It was finished, as it appears today, in Nightmist Blue with a knitted black fabric Décor interior, an extra-cooling package, courtesy lights, a fold-down rear seat, power steering, front disc brakes, and a heavy-duty battery. It was delivered to agent Bedford Motor Corporation, of Bedford, Virginia, and sold new on 26 September 1967 to its original owner, James W. Gregg Jr., a resident of Bedford. It is noted that it had a cracked valve cover, which had been replaced by the dealer in January 1968.

Around 1971, the car was sold by a Ford dealer in DePere, Wisconsin, to Ken and Shirley DeYoung, who drove it to Road Atlanta in November 1972 to participate in the Sports Car Club of America run-offs. In 1973, it passed to Kevin Jones, of Green Bay, Wisconsin, the last owner recorded in the Shelby American Automobile Club’s Registry.

The present owner had the car fully and expertly restored by British specialist Alan Faulkner-Stevens, of Dragon Wheels, to concours condition, including the majority of its original body panels, with the exception of a new passenger-side floor pan and a proper repair to the rear quarter panels. The body was stripped, properly prepared, and then returned to its original finishes and colours. The car retains its original engine and the 1968 dealer replacement heads, intake, and distributor, with remanufactured correct-type Holley carburettors. Furthermore, the engine has been upgraded with a stroker crankshaft and a connecting rod kit to increase capacity to 462 cubic inches, giving it a healthy boost in horsepower to 437. A dynamometer report on file attests to the increased horsepower and torque. The car has a correct four-speed transmission and axle assembly and all of the rare Shelby fiberglass parts, as well as a correct steering wheel, gauges, and aluminium wheels. The wiring and lights were also upgraded from the original specification, with turn signals being subtly fitted.

This rare “muscle car”, offered in excellent condition throughout and from one of the UK’s foremost Shelby enthusiasts, is undoubtedly the finest example in England!

    Remember that as per Paulstuff during the election the rank and file union members on the line supported the CPC…..and did NOT listen to their union thug bosses. Sid Ryan and his Entourage are goons. He’d fit right into the Libranos poster from a few years ago.
