Featuring a striking exterior, likely the result of a recent restoration, this GT500 boasts a blend of refreshed and all-original components. The Nightmist Blue paint job appears relatively fresh, while the interior retains its all-original charm.

Although the cabin exhibits some signs of weathering, it remains in remarkable condition, especially considering the vehicle’s 57-year history since leaving the assembly line.  Retaining its factory rollbar and Shelby decor items, this GT500 hides a V8 engine behind its enticing grille, complete with original valve covers, air cleaner, and exhaust manifolds.

The carburetors, though original, have undergone rebuilding and replating. While the specifics about the block’s authenticity aren’t explicitly mentioned, it houses an authentic 428-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) V8, known as the “Police Interceptor.”

Topped with a pair of Holley four-barrel carburetors and a mid-rise aluminum intake manifold, these Shelby modifications grant the engine a factory rating of 355 horsepower and 420 pound-feet (569 Nm) of torque. With such power, the GT500 accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (97 kph) in 6.5 seconds and completes the quarter-mile in approximately 15 seconds.
