1967 Shelby Mustang GT500

1967 SHELBY MUSTANG GT500 BACKGROUND
Carroll Shelby had been building cars for Ford for years, Cobras, Daytonas, GT40s and Mustangs...lots and lots of Mustangs. The '65 and '66 GT350s were home runs for Ford, both at the track and in showrooms. With the mid-cycle facelift that came in 1967, Ford upped the ante with the 1967 Shelby Mustang GT350 and GT500. They made the exteriors much more distinctive visually from the non-Shelby Mustangs, sported-up the interior, and offered the big block 428 V8 torque-monster as an option. This is not a free-revving engine. Instead it dips into deep wells of torque very early in the RPM-range. This coupled with the Mustang's natural light weight made the GT500 a drag-racing demon, and earned it the nickname "The King of the Road". This title sparked Ford to add the letters "KR" to the end of GT500 for the 1968 model year. While the 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 would out-accelerate nearly anything on the street, the heavy cast iron big block changed the car's weight bias and upset its nimble handling. The same is true of big-block Corvette, an otherwise excellent-handling car with a small block, but made nose-heavy with the big block. Hence, those who were serious about racing on a road course or track, where razor-sharp handling was crucial, opted for the better-handling GT350. And those who wanted to beat any other car stoplight-to-stoplight or at the local dragstrip ordered the GT500.
