Restoration of a 1967 Shelby GT500 4-speed!
- Vehicle Overview
- Vehicle Location
This fully original Shelby GT500 4 speed was found by PTTM in the USA and was sold by PTTM to a Dutch Shelby collector. It will be restored back to its former factory original condition!
The car is a genuine and rare early 67's Shelby with its inboard lights and functional side scoops and it is also a rare 4-speed car and in the desirable Night mist blue color.
This car has a great pedigree and was one of the last cars Caroll Shelby build in its own factory. All later models were produced at Ford plants under his license. The 4 speed in combination with its originality and rare color combination makes this car very interesting as a collector and investment grade car.
The car was more or less a barn find and its still has all its original parts in place and it has the factory original 428 police interceptor V8 big block and its Top loader 4-speed transmission as well. How rare is that? The body is still pretty solid but only the front floors and some other smaller body details are in need of restoration. Otherwise, this car is super solid and carries almost all of its rare parts.
PTTM is going to perform a complete rotisserie restoration on this beauty for a client and the complete driveline, engine and transmission will also be restored/rebuild. It will be completely taken apart and the whole body and all parts will be acid dipped and after the body and parts are restored the whole car will receive a special coating dipping process to protect it against rust for many more decades to come.
All in all the plan is to build this car back into its factory as new concourse condition and all work is done in our own shops. This rare early 4 speed GT500 Shelby will be one of the best around when done.
PTTM has restored many Shelby's already and were very sure this car will turn our great.
