The 1967 Shelby GT500 is one of the most iconic muscle cars of all times. With it aggressive stance and presence, amazing power from the 428 cubic inch (7 liter) displacement V8 engine and an incredible rumble from the tail pipes the GT500 gives a driving experience that you will never forget. The 1967 is the most sought after production year due to the iconic design and stylish layout of the interior. 1967 was the first year for the GT500 and this model year is especially iconic with its round high beam headlights and brushed aluminum dashboard - design features that disappeared already in the 1968 model year.
