SEMA Barn Find: 1967 Shelby GT500

This 1967 Shelby GT500 was on display at the Scott Drake Booth at  the SEMA show. The all original and unrestored Shelby was sold at Galpin Ford in Van Nuys, California back in 1967 to a Los Angeles school teacher. It was her daily driver until 1981 where with only 124,000 miles on the clock the car was parked in favor of something that would get better gas mileage.

The car sat for 16 years before it would find a new owner in 1997, that owner did not have the time or resources to ever tackle the project so for another 17 years it would sit slowly decaying. The car has only been repainted once in the 70's and other than that is one of the most original Shelby GT500s on the planet. The current owners Paul and Leticia Kerner are planning a full restoration and will restore as many of the original parts as possible.
