georgeb's {T. George } '67 Mustang Shelby GT-350

It's kinda early to mid '67 (early April). The inboard high beams (not fog) were a problem in some states; urban rumor
has it that a Pennsylvania state senator got the laws changed in his state so he could have one with inboard high beams.

The 15" Kelsey-Hayes wheels are original options (aluminum center with steel rim) and preceeded the 15" 10 spoke
alloys (14" ten spoke alloys were available in '66); for a while in '67 both the K-H and alloys were available options.

The rollbar has rubber "donuts" at the trim panel openings (some early cars didn't), and the lower scoops have cooling
vents to the rear brake shoes (rear brake drums are from '67 station wagon, e.g., larger than Mustang or Fairlane).

Later '67s had outboard high beams and non-functional rear brake scoops.
Detroit locker rear was optional in '67, and Koni shocks were optional but I think only dealer installed.
I think all (or most) '67 Shelbys were shipped without "Le Mans" stripes
(don't know for sure) and they were applied by dealers.

Automatic transmissions and air conditioning were available options. Some very early cars had small round amber running lights in the back of the upper vent scoop, and the trim rings around the headlights were painted (later cars have chromed trim rings). My car has the close ratio 4 speed (toploader); standard rear axle ratio for the 350GT is 3.89:1 (500GT is 3.25:1).

My car is creeping up on 47,000 original miles and is a fairly nice example...
