1967 Shelby GT350
For 1967, the Shelby GT350 continues with the same engine of the previous years.
Special specimens or versions were manufactured as follows:
- A Shelby GT Hard Top, which would be a precursor to the Ford Mustang California Special.
- A Shelby GT500 Convertible, precursor of the 1968 exemplars.
- A Fastback was fitted with a modified 427 engine to give 650 cf and was known as the “Super Snake”. Only this prototype was produced with those specifications.
The Ford Mustang was redesigned for the 1967 model, in the case of the Shelby, it receives a longer hood that is now made of fiberglass, as well as new defenses. And although you could still see the original design of 1965, these additions gave it a much more aggressive appearance. At the freight of the hood you can distinguish vents that cool the engine. Shelby included new rear lights (transplanted from a 1967 Mercury Cougar, while the 1968 model used the rear lights of the 1965 Ford Thunderbird), and a “Kamm”, this was a type of tail or spoiler, to improve aerodynamics.
The 4.7-liter V8 (289 cu in) had 306 cf and 329 lb ft of torque with a four- barrels Holley carburetor. Line equipped a manual transmission of 4 speeds and optionally an automatic of 3.
