I will not bore you with statistics and all the numbers on this car. It has been written millions of times by now and I cannot add anything to that. What I will add is the beautiful lines of this car. Even the Ford haters will secretly admit that this car is a keeper. So much so that prices on these models are past the orbit we all know.


This 1967 and 68 model have been so popularized by movies and TV shows over the years it’s hard to say nothing but good. Whether you love it from a movie with Steve McQueen or the new Eleanor versions the car spawned the new Mustang back in 2005. That is why I bought my 2005. I did not like the 04 version at all but when Ford reintroduced the Mustang in 05 to look like the 67 and 68 models I was hooked. Ford even offered up a Bullit version back then that was the hunter green.

I came very close to buying that model but settled on a black GT. I have that car to this day and love it. But, I recently bought a 2013 Shelby GT 500 and that Shelby has a bad attitude. It’s fast, hungry, and out right mean. Just like this 67 version. The lines are perfect, the engine and transmission match is perfect and today the older versions are hotter than the sun.

When I go to Vegas I always hit the Shelby museum. It’s a learning experience and you can watch in the shop the guys and gals building the new hot rods right in front of you. You can also see the very first AC Cobra in the lobby along with many other Shelbys for display and for sale. And yes, they represent Mopar’s failed attempt with the Shelby. Now, Raptor Ford trucks that are being built by Shelby. That shows you how popular the brand is today. Saleen is gone and Rousch and Shelby are the players. I love automotive history and looking at this picture once again shows all of us that some great things still are with us many years later.
