Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you the rarest and the most expensive Mustang ever sold – the one-off 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake.
So what makes the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake so valuable? As we mentioned before, it’s the only one in the world, but it’s more than just that. It’s also the most powerful and fastest Mustang produced by Shelby in the 1960s, packing a 427 cubic inch V8 from a Ford GT40 race car under the hood.
The SuperSnake was an engineering study that was the result of a suggestion by Carroll Shelby to Shelby America’s Chief Engineer, Fred Goodell. Shelby asked Goodell to put together a 1967 GT500 powered by a super high performance 427 engine which could be used a test vehicle by Goodyear. The car Goodell chose was a white fastback (serial # 67402F4A00544). It was given a lightweight 427 medium-rise GT40 MK II engine fitted with aluminum heads, aluminum water pump, mechanical lifters, a single 780CM Holley 4V carburetor and a unique “bundle of snakes” GT40-style exhaust header system. It also had a large oil cooler and remote filter, a 4-speed transmission and a 4.11 rear end with a Detroit Locker “No-Spin” center section. The car was topped off with special Guardsman Blue stripes running up and over the top in a narrow-wide-narrow row pattern.
