Lot #1565.1 - This rare and exquisite GT-500 is likely the best of the absolute best. Nearly 25 years ago, February 1982, this non-rock star non-celebrity owned, completely original, inboard high-beam headlight car chose it's 3rd owner. Purchased with all original, numbers matching, non-rebuilt 428 PI engine, Holley BJ/BK carburetors, top loader, 4-speed transmission, original interior and completely straight, non-damaged sheet metal with original factory production line paint finish, this car found the perfect fit by adopting it's 3rd owner. To preserve original 428 PI engine, this car was at one time fitted with a Nascar tunnel port 427 for SAAC convention, Portland, Oregon, July 1992, where it participated in the high speed track event. This car's original 428 PI engine and drive train components all given detailed attention to originality, functionality, and inspection. The original 428 PI engine rebuilt with roller cam shaft and then reinstalled by Shelby American, Las Vegas, Nevada. Complete with Shelby American specification multi-angle valve job, bronze guide clearance, dual valve springs, titanium valve keepers and Carroll Shelby "Signature Series" 427 stamped roller rocker assemblies. All interior and exterior metal chrome received "Show Quality" replating. Recent "nuts and bolts" concours rotisserie restoration down to original brake master cylinder Kelsey Hayes N.O.S. brake pads, expert black paint application, and much more. Original production line factory paint finish remained on this gem until 2006. Meticulous and no expense spared attention given through out this car, documented with Shelby American Automobile Club Registrar for nearly 30 years. Many extras come with this sale (even car's original owner's manual and positive battery lead for example). A truly breathtaking rare 1967 GT-500 with "Big Gun" performance.
