1. The four (4) 1966 G.T. 350 Convertibles were ordered at the end of '66 production. A Shelby American document referred to them as "experimental;" for testing purposes in anticipation of a 1967-1/2 convertible.

2. The red '67 GT 500 Fastback prototype was a pre-production Ford Mustang that wore an "X" experimental VIN. It is most-likely the first Mustang to receive a 428 CID engine and Shelby styling upgrades (fiberglass), though it never received a Shelby American VIN [read more]. This was the red G.T. 500 fastback that appeared on the 1967 Shelby advertising.  The registry lists two prototype cars in their count -- the other being a G.T. 350. The history of the lime gold '67 GT 350 Fastback that appeared on the 1967 Shelby advertising is unknown. We believe it to be car 0176, built by the San Jose assembly plant on Sep. 01, 1966, in which case the term 'prototype' would not be applicable; rather it would simply be the first 1967 Shelby G.T. 350 built by Ford. This car has not been found, and probably didn't survive.

3. The "Green Hornet" was a standard Dearborn assembly line-built 390 cu.in. (S-code) Ford Mustang coupe purchased by the Shelby Automotive unit in Ionia, MI. The car was used for testing the Conolec fuel injection system and an independent rear suspension (IRS) setup. At some point, the car was fitted with '68 styled Shelby fiberglass, given a unique metallic green paint job, and subsequently nicknamed the "Green Hornet." This car was not ordered as a Shelby and therefore never received a Shelby VIN. This car survived, was restored by Martin Euler and is part of Craig Jackson's personal collection.
