Although technically serial number 003, this Shelby Ford Mustang GT350 was the first unit completed and was used in publicity photos for the upcoming line of customized vehicles. Serial numbers 001 and 002 were completed later and were race versions. In 1979, this car was restored as a race car and raced. It was later discovered that it was originally built as the first street GT350. It will be restored to its original condition. We photographed this amazing car at the 2010 Mustang Club of America Grand Nationals car show held in Bellevue, Washington; and was our Attitude Of The Week for the week starting February 27th, 2011.

Sapphire Blue 1966 Shelby GT350 fastback owned by John Drysdale from New York. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting May 27, 2012. It has the original 289ci V8 and a manual transmission. John adds, "I just came to own it, but have known the car and family since 1972. It's a survivor car that's completely original and unrestored. It has always had TLC and never abused! It has 53000 'actual' Miles! With original docs. All the ones I see for sale have 30000-50000 miles!
Seriously!! No way!! You better have a pile of paper work, oil changes and inspections to go with it."

Check out this amazingly restored Silver Frost 1967 Shelby GT350 Mustang fastback owned by Emmanuel Theux of Monte-Carlo, Monaco. There are several other darker gray 1967 Shelbys out there but this is the color and year that inspired the Eleanor Shelby used in the Nicolas Cage, 2000 movie Gone in 60 seconds which is also a light gray, but more accurately Eleanor Pepper Gray Dupont 44490. There is much confusion on what 1967 Shelby color code 6 for Medium Gray is. Marti confirmed with Emmanuel that over the years Ford color code M1901 Silver Frost had been mistaken for the correct Ford color code M1900 Thunderbird Charcoal Gray. Emmanuel's 67 GT350 was our Attitude Of The Week for May 3rd, 2009. Emmanuel has owned many Mustangs. Check them out by clicking here.

Candy Apple Red 1967 Shelby GT500 fastback owned by Shaun Fitzgerald from Harmony, Pennsylvania. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting December 29, 2013. Shaun shares, "Shelby #258 was built at Ford's San Jose California plant on December 9, 1966. It was sold by JD Ball Ford in Miami on January 18, 1967. The car remained in Miami until 1986. I have owned it since 1997. The Shelby was an original painted Lime Gold Metallic and equipped with a 428 Police Interceptor. The car was painted red and the 427 installed in 1985.

Here is a super rare Mustang. Only one built! It's a Candyapple Red 1967 Shelby GT-500 convertible. It's owned by Samantha and Brian Styles from Delray Beach, Florida. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting February 1, 2015. It has a 428ci V8 "Interceptor" engine and an automatic transmission. Shelby had intended to offer the GT350 and GT500 in all three body styles - six in all. Brian adds, "We just gained access to the Ford Special Orders (DSOs) and they confirm that Shelby American even went so far as to create "package" codes for each type of car. The convertible was package code "413C", meaning a GT500, Auto, AC, Smog, Convertible Body. Carroll claimed the convertible as his own personal car. About 4 months later, the car was needed for a new task. It was used to bolt on the A.O. Smith built '68 styled fiberglass designed by Ford. It was essentially disguised as a '68 for the purpose of taking photos -- a lot of photos. A couple Shelby employees referred to the car in the stage as a "68 styling proto," though there was actually nothing prototype about it. Nothing more than a model putting on a new dress for her walk down the runway." Check out the www.1967shelbyconvertible.com website for more information.
