1967 Shelby GT500 Barn Find

It’s getting harder to find classic cars tucked away in barns or deserted in a back lots, but determined collectors are still occasionally making incredible discoveries. One found recently is this 1967 Shelby GT500 that has been sitting outside in the desert in Death Valley, CA for the last 25 years. The car is still in fairly good condition considering what it’s been through, although the exterior, particularly the paint (or lack thereof) on the fiberglass panels, is worse for wear. BangShift.com, who went to go see the car at the shop where it’s being worked on, reports that the car still has its Shelby-specific items including the center driving lights, wooden steering wheel and all Shelby tags and badges.

So what does the new owner, a resident of Massachusetts, plan on doing with the car? BangShift.com says that he is getting the 428ci V8 running and will keep the exterior as-is.  We doubt that includes the vintage Firestone Wide Oval tires, as they’ll probably need to be replaced.
