Amazing 1967 Shelby GT500 Barn Find in Death Valley California


by Brian Lohnes 

When we got the call from our pal Jon at Tube Chassis Designz that we needed to get down to his shop to see something cool, we jumped in the car and went. 

We were greeted with one of the coolest single cars we have ever seen. This is a factory stock 1967 Shelby GT500 that sat outside in Death Valley, California for more than 25 years before being found and rescued by a Massachusetts buyer. It is a legit car with the proper Shelby ID tag on the fender, wooden steering wheel, fiberglass hood and deck lid with spoiler, center grouped driving lights, four speed manual transmission, dual quad topped 428 and Shelby badging. 

This 1967 Shelby GT500 is a true time capsule and the owner knows it. He is having the 428 pulled out to get cleaned up internally and once it is ready to run, it is going back in the car and he is leaving the exterior untouched, which we think is boss!
