1967 GT500 427 Drag car (1 of 1)

March 8th, 2017 by admin

This car was built for a friend of Caroll Shelby, Clint Lunham, he was a banker in San Francisco at the time. clint wanted to drag race and asked shelby to build him a car.

Shelby wrote how he wanted the car built and what modifications. the engine was a Cobra S.C. lightweight 427; aluminum heads, water pump, balancer, Holman Moody 2×4 intake custom headers and exhaust system, heavy duty radiator, no p.s. cobra oil cooler, remote oil filter, C-6 modified by D and H hydro, 3000rpm stall converter, Ddetroit locker 411s, under ride traction bars,shock towers were cut just above a-frames and plated up to the top to make room for spark plug access and headers. the rear wheel wells lips were cut off, raised and spread a little over an inch and welded back on, still looks like a factory opening just bigger.

a gallery of the factory that built the 68 Shelby Cobra Mustangs just popped up

February 8th, 2016 by admin

1968 Shelbys were only built for nine months. Cars destined for A.O. Smith didn’t leave the Ford plant until December of 1967 and the last cars were shipped the first week in August of 1968. The conversion process continued into the fall of 1968. The GT500KRs (Production Total of 1571) had only a three month run- May, June and July of 1968.

A.O. Smith was actually involved much earlier than the ‘68 Shelby program. Apparently their involvement dates back to the ‘67 Shelby program. It is probable that they got involved after all the fitment problems with the initial batch of ‘67 Shelby fiberglass that was fabricated in California with molds made from a twisted Mustang.

Most of these pictures were taken by Jack Reddeker on an A.O. Smith plant tour in 1968. This GT500KR is half of AO Smith’s display. The other half was a Cougar XR-7G. The XR-7Gs were also built by AO Smith.

Shelbys started out as “knockdown” versions of 1968 Mustangs. All cars destined for conversion were built at Ford’s Metuchen, New Jersey assembly plant. The cars were shipped on rail carriers to A.O. Smith in Ionia, Michigan.

the ‘68 Shelby Cobra Mustangs were called Shelby Cobras. The word “Mustang” is not found anywhere on the cars.

The cars all came with standard 15″x6″ steel, heavy duty steel rims and hub caps. The hub caps were stock Ford Thunderbird and were suppose to look like mag wheels with a Shelby Cobra emblem in the middle. (See the hubcaps on the image below.) The accountants at Ford thought they could save a lot on the 68’s by making the aluminum alloy wheels an option, the same type 10-spoke wheel offered at the end of the ‘67 production run. The 15″x7″ wheel was a special Shelby only mag. (The 1968 aluminum wheels will not fit 67 cars, though.)

Found on

the GT 350H found in Compton… then bought, and used as bait on a trailer to hook a GT 500

January 28th, 2015 by admin

Rich Barnes has a Mustang restoration business in Golden Colorado, and was in Compton looking for this GT 350, bought it, was on the way home when getting gas in San Jose, and the guy at the next gas pump over spoke up about having a GT 500 in a shipping container that he’d blown up the motor while running Pike’s Peak

and that is why you connect on facebook to magazines like Hot Rod. You learn of stories like this on their websites

finding a 1967 GT500 Shelby Cobra Mustang… awesome. Buying it for 15thou in 1997, incredible. Letting it decay/not doing anything to fix it… signs you are "that guy" who is going to "fix it up someday"

the Shelby GT 500 Mustang with 8531 miles, is finally out of the garage for a good look before auction

Not likely that we’ll see another low mile unrestored like new GT 500 for sale anytime soon.

For the info, and more photos
