1967 Ford Shelby Mustang Fastback GT 350 & 1967/68 Ford Shelby Mustang Fastback GT 500!!! HELP!?

is there any main visual differences between these two Mustangs because i see GT 500's on the net that look like the body of the GT 350's and i thought that the main difference between the GT 500 and GT 350 was that the GT 500 had 2 extra lights on the front (built in not the ones that look like spot lights) and its hood scoop was higher off the hood that the GT 350's! OH and what came out first, the GT 350 or the GT 500? And are they the same car but with just bigger Horse power?

The two extra lights in question are most likely from those POS Eleanor kits. (Yes, Eleanors make me want to PUKE!)The large "spot lights" are in two locations because the gov't didn't like the close together early 67 version http://www.shelby-mustangs.com/1967-shelby-mustang-002-4.jpg LATER MODEL YEAR 67s WERE FARTHER APART ON 350s AND 500s. http://xenocide-rpg.com/pics/cars/shelby_gt500_1967.jpg SORRY I WASN'T SPECIFIC ENOUGH EARLIER.

The 67s (350s AND 500s) have a one piece hood and the 68s (350s and 500s) have a normal length hood with a valance for the extra length. (wouldn't want to miss lead anyone else)

The major differences in the two are the drivetrains, and the quickest way to tell the difference is to read the side stripes!!

the 65, 66 were all GT 350 289's

this is the 67 GT 500 and it came with the narrow lights, but so did the 350.

here is the 68, it had wider rectangle inner lights,

the GT 350 was a 289 powered, and the GT 500 had a 428 big block, the bodies were the same except for the grill opening.
