Carroll Shelby is famous for taking Ford Mustangs and giving them high performance upgrades. The 1967 Shelby Ford Mustang GT500 is one of the most popular muscle cars of all time. The Ford Mustang had a 428 big block powerplant rated at 335hp and was decorated with elaborate use of fiberglass. A larger fiberglass nose was fitted together with fiberglass hood, fenders and trunk lid. The hood featured an intimidating dual air intake scoop and the cut-off rear end showed an angular spoiler which blended into the rear fenders. The plastic rear roof windows gave way to impressive air-extraction scoops. A protruding lower front spoiler was a popular extra.
