THE CAR

Everything you need to know about our Mustang.

HISTORY

The Shelby is a higher performance variant of the Ford Mustang, which was built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1967, and Shelby Automotive from 1968 to 1970. Following the introduction of the fifth generation Ford Mustang, the Shelby nameplate was revived in 2007 for the new high performance versions of the Mustang.

COBRA

For 1967, the GT 350 carried over the K-Code high performance 289 with a 'COBRA' aluminium hi-rise. The GT 500 was added to the line-up, equipped with the 428 Police Interceptor. These later cars carried over a few of the performance modifications of the 1965–66 GT350s, although they did feature more cosmetic changes.

HOLLYWOOD

The 1967 Shelby Cobra is featured in the 2000 film Gone In Sixty Seconds as 'Eleanor', the holy grail of Memphis Raines' car-jacking mission, and Kenichi Sonoda's Manga - Gunsmith Cats as the ride of main character Rally Vincent. In the sequel Gunsmith Cats Burst the car is blown up by a bomb, whereupon Rally replaces it with a Mustang II King Cobra rather than a Shelby.

SPECIFICATIONS

Our Mustang was built in Metuchen on 21/03/1967. Once released it was delivered to the Ford Motor Company Figeso Dealer in Newark, New Jersey. It stayed in the States for a number of years before being shipping to South Africa where it was converted to RHD. In the early 1990’s the Mustang was shipped to the UK where we became the second owners
