1967 Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang Barn Find In Death Valley, California

Posted by on February 29, 2012 - more
Shelby Barn Find

Another month, another awesome barn find. Seems like there may be more of these barn finds than people know about and they are being uncovered one by one. This one came from the guys at Bangshift and it is a completely stock genuine 1967 Shelby GT500 with the original wooden steering wheel, fiberglass hood and deck lid and spoiler, the center grouped driving lights, a four speed manual transmission and a dual quad topped 428 complete with Shelby badging, and the proper Shelby ID tag on the fender.

This awesome find sat for 25 years in Death Valley until a Massachusetts buyer rescued it from actual death. The 428 is getting pulled out, cleaned internally and installed back in. What’s even better, the exterior will be left untouched! The new owner is a Ford collector with a few rare Ford pieces and picked this one up as soon as he heard about it. The fiberglass hood has been sandblasted completely naturally from the California desert. If that’s not natural art, I don’t know what is.

This rare car was supposedly filled halfway to the roof with desert sand! It also had a tow hitch attached to the back. The old-school Firestone Wide Oval tires that were on it are most likely dated back to the 1970’s.

Some work has been done including the red shock absorbers in the engine bay. Some things need to be done such as the brakes and making sure the electrical is functional. Other than that, it will most likely be driven as is! How awesome is that?
