Description for Ford Mustang 1967

1967 Mustang GT500 Convertible Big Block 428 w/dual Holley carbs (2x4bbl). Downsizing and it's time to part with this beauty. This car turns heads and will attract a crowd. Purchased in 2013 fresh off a complete nut and bolt professional restoration w/correct red oxide floors (look underneath car) around 2010. This is a tribute to the very car Shelby built to bring in the Ford execs to show him what he could do. The ONE and only original car sold for $880,000! The police interceptor 428cid Big Block with 2x4bbl Holleys factory rated @335HP but feels well over 400HP. Many speculate the low HP rating was to qualify for a different class race divisions. Heavy duty C6 automatic transmission, original HD Ford 9" rear differential, Candyapple Red pain w/white stripes and GT500 callouts, factory tach + correct Shelby branded Stewart/Warner gauges, A/C, 3 spoke wood and stainless wheel, great sounding polished dual exhaust, correct Shelby grill w/inboard driving lights, Shelby 5 spoke alloys (are showing some slight corrosion - see pics), chrome and polished stainless trim, detailed engine compartment and truck. Beautifully reproduced, great looking and lightning fast!
I've made a few changes since the purchase - Changed round roll bar for 1968 version for looks (still need to install a couple eyelets for snap buttons that are on boot cover), replaced Points with Electronic Ignition for reliability, Upgraded from steel radiator to aluminum for increased cooling capacity, new water pump, $1,755 Custom Autosound AM/FM radio for 1967 Mustang look with Bluetooth - Digital Designs enclosure - B55 5 channel amp (when you drive you and want to listen to tunes with the top town at all speeds - cruising to highway ), 2 brand new BJ & BK code Holley carbs (there was some build up in the carbs as I purchased - I assume it sat for awhile - and needed to get the new carbs plus worked on the timing to optimize idle and acceleration), 4 new Primewell tires replaced when odometer was 8,255 with balance/alignment (I am not a fan of these tires. Could not locate Firestone wide ovals in a timely manner) still looks sharp but not ideal.
I do not know the actual mileage. I was told it had 242 miles on the car since the complete nut and bolt remod with fresh 428. The odometer read 6354 when I received it and now reads 9750. Oil change every year with Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil with Zinc. Always put in 100% gasoline with no ethanol. This car has been in a garage since purchased. Has not seen a drop of rain as I will not take it out if there is even a slight chance of rain. In fact these pics are the first time the white power convertible top has been up since I purchased the car. This car purrs like a kitten at idle and roars like a lion with gas. It is a head turning blast to drive. I personally think car styling reached its peak in the late 60s (vettes early 60s) and it will be really hard to be outshown at any car gathering. There will be a definite tear in my eye seeing this go and hope the new owner will take it out once in awhile and show it off.
