1967 (End of Operations)
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.
There were only eleven (11) GT 350 cars categorized as "Company
Cars," of which five (5) were specifically designated as "Engineering"

(Results are based on the documents I have,

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.
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

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.
