Originally delivered to Jack Howell Motors in Newfane, New York, and passed through only three owners since, this solid gold Ford presents an incredible opportunity to own a real thoroughbred.

Lift the car’s lightweight hood and you’ll find a 428 cubic inch, “C7ME-A” branded block that wears an era-correct August (H) 22nd (22), 1967 (7) casting date.
That means, since Ford didn’t officially introduce the Cobra Jet until April, 1968, this 355 horsepower mill is indeed a Police Interceptor block.
While most casual observers argue that Ford’s Cobra Jet is the pinnacle of Shelby powerplants, Dearborn’s proven police-spec V8 is certainly nothing to scoff at. What’s more: most experts agree the engine probably puts out closer to 420 horsepower and as much as 450 lb./ft. of torque.

At the top of the Ford Blue beast, a finned and “COBRA” branded air cleaner jams oxygen into a big Holley carburetor that’s bolted to a correct aluminum intake. At the sides of that intake, high performance heads hang finned and “COBRA LE MANS” branded valve covers between a small chrome breather and cast iron exhaust manifolds.
At the front of those heads, an authentic points distributor utilizes fresh Autolite Radio Resistance wires to light the cylinders’ fires.
In front of that distributor, a thick radiator cycles water through pliable hoses and reproduction tower clamps. Aesthetically, this Mustang’s well-detailed engine bay appears very close to original, featuring even Satin Black paint under correct Ford decals.

Inside this gold chariot you’ll find a correct Black interior that blends seamlessly with the car’s bright exterior paint. Everything from the door panels and headliner to the black carpet and pony-branded floor mats appears to be original equipment. The vintage dash is loaded with vintage telemetry, and features retro trim that’s still vivid. A correct Philco radio rides above small Stewart Warner accessory gauges, a chrome, cobra-branded shifter and a full-length, factory console. In front of the driver, you’ll find a traditional, two-spoke steering wheel. Behind the passengers, a completely restored trunk mixes a correct mat and decklid decal with a fifth 10-spoke alloy and full-size spare tire. And, like most first generation Mustangs, this Shelby’s design and detailing is impressive proof that Ford definitely had some of the best interior stylists in the business.
