Is it a '67 or '68? Either way, it a factory BB 390 FB Mustang. Original restored, this Mustang would bring mid to high $30K.....Great find.

I am a bit surprised no one has pointed out all 1967 GT500s were "S" codes. But, I am pretty sure Chris has already checked the VIN just to double check its not a real Shelby

Am I reading this right?, you're saying that "all 1967 GT500's were "S" codes? I know that all 1967 GT500's are 428 cars, not the "S" code 390.

It may be just the way you worded it. Knowing it wasn't a real Shelby.

Its a 67. S-code 4spd Deluxe interior. I already got Deluxe Marti Report for it.

1 of only 4 1967 Fastback with this color combo / interior pkg.

Pebble Beige w/ Parchment knitted Decor interior. Yuk ! And it was dealer stock... No wonder it took over 2 months to sell.

Yes, all 67 GT500 were serial numbered from the Ford plant as an S-code fastback. Even though Shelby installed a 428 in them. Shelby had his own serial number installed on the fender. Sure would have been nice to see a couple small holes near the serial number.

I wasn't thinking, Now that I recollect and jar my brain, There wasn't a 428 offered in a standard Mustang in 1967. Only the '67 Shelby GT500's had the 428 that Mr. Shelby installed.

Correct. I recently sold a 68 1/2 Cobra Jet Fastback. It was a real early car and the serial number on the fender apron had a blank where the engine code goes... Don't know if you have ever seen that, but I thought that was kinda weird. The early cars were like that... The dash Vin plate and door tag had the R in the serial number.

Ummm...the 67 GT500's had a Ford VIN with a Q engine code. At least mine did.
Both the 68.5 R code fastbacks I had were missing the engine code on the inner fender too.
