Source: Shelby American, Inc.
Date: July 31, 1967 (End of Operations)

This three-page document would have been part of the last accounting records of the Shelby American operation. Ford made that decision to terminate the Shelby Program in May 1967. A mere three weeks after the this document was created, all assets of the company and a small staff were sent to Ionia to form Shelby Automotive and transition production to the A.O. Smith company.

[TF] = T: listed on 3/31 tax register, F: listed on this 7/31 fixed asset ledger
  
(Results are based on the documents I have, which are not complete)

Note: Based on value, the only convertible would be the most expensive 1967 G.T. 500 company car. Car 0003, a G.T. 350, is the most expensive G.T. company car overall.

 

1967 Ford Mustangs
In addition to the Shelby G.T. vehicles, there were five Mustang coupes and one convertible leased by Shelby American and assigned to various Shelby & Ford personnel involved with the program. Kevin Marti was kind enough to look these cars up in his Ford database and provide their details:

7F01S129215   Coupe, 390-4V, Auto, Candyapple Red over Parchment Décor (R. Geddes)
7F01C114118   Coupe, 289-2V, Auto, Sauterne Gold over Black Décor (J. McKaeff)
7F01S114141   Coupe, 390-4V, Auto, Lime Gold over Black Décor (H. Phinney)
7F01A104190   Coupe, 289-4V, Auto, Lime Gold over Black Knitted Bench (S. Adams)
7F01S117509   Coupe, 390-4V, Auto, Candyapple Red over Black Décor (Shelby Ent.)
7F03A107310   Conv., 289-4V, Auto, Nightmist Blue over Blue Décor (B. Galloway)
 
 
It is possible that these (6) Mustangs could have received '67 Shelby styling and/or performance upgrades as it is unlikely that Shelby American employees were driving around town in a stock Mustangs. I wonder where they cars are today and if the current owners might find signs of these previous upgrades.
