Home Research Shelby American 1967 G.T. Package Codes
 
 

It wasn't until recently that we discovered the term "package code," which was used by Shelby American when placing orders (FSO/DSOs) with Ford for new G.T. cars.

Shelby American's big plans for '67 included offering three different body styles and two engine options. Air conditioning and exhaust emissions (smog) were also core options. In preparation, "package codes" were implemented to streamline the ordering process with Ford. Each DSO would be limited to a single package code, though multiple paint codes could be specified on an order that contained multiple cars. See image above in the CUSTOMER field: "(413C Pkg.)"

Does the 4-character package code look familiar? Of course it does! The package code is part of your 1967 Shelby American G.T. 350 / G.T. 500 VIN, specifically characters three through six. In the case of the GT500 convertible, we have 67413C9A00139.

The following table itemizes the 48 Shelby G.T. package code that were planned for 1967:

One 1967 G.T. 500 convertible (package code 413C) and one G.T. 500 hardtop (package code 413H) were ordered before Ford scaled back the '67 program. Both cars were built and delivered to Shelby in November 1966. The remainder of the '67 production cars were limited to a single fastback "F" body style.

The following table shows the 18 package codes that were actually built:

413C 428-8V (GT 500) Auto A/C Emissions Convertible 1 1


The 'ordered' column is what was originally ordered per the DSOs. Many orders were cancelled and others were modified with Supplemental Change Notices (e.g. a car would have been ordered with smog, and then the smog was deleted, resulting in a 202F package becoming a 200F package). The majority of DSOs that were cancelled were for air conditioning equipped G.T. 500 cars. For a chart of this data, sorted by rarity, head over to the DSO Microfilm Observations page.
