1967 Shelby Cobra GT350 & GT500 Main Page

Third year of the Shelby Mustangs. Ford changed the Mustang body in 1967. The horse power wars called for room to put a big block engine in the Mustang. The ’67 Mustang was a bit larger car and would handle a 390 or 428 or even a 427. A big block Mustang defines the word Muscle Car. The ’67 Shelby Mustang was less race car and more cool street GT car. The Shelby modifications tended to be more bolt on a Mustang GT. A fiberglass hood and front end gave the ’67 Shelby Mustang a much more unique appearance as compared to the stock Mustang. Plus the rear end cap was all fiberglass with a duck tail spoiler. More cars were sold in 1967 than in 1966 and 1966 combined at 3,225 Shelby Mustang

Shelby American offered two levels of ’67 Shelby Mustangs, a small block GT 350 with the Ford HiPo 289 engine or the GT 500 with the 428. This is the first year you could opt for a big block car. Shelby one upped the stock big block Mustang by offering the special Police Interceptor 428 in the GT 500’s.
