It cracks me up when people claim a "1 of 1" car because of a list of options. What gets this car there? A heavy duty battery. Who cares?

The car itself is cool being ivy green and having a HIPO. It also looks to be very well done. If Frank Bullitt were to have had a small block car that would be the one.

Very cool car, just not $129k cool.

67 K codes are stupid rare. Back in the 90's when I was looking for my convertible, I was looking for a K code 4 speed. What I didn't know at the time, or even until years later, was that they only made 16 of them. That being said, looks like an extremely nice resto. There's definitely a premium on that one. Not sure there's really a market to support that, even with the cash flow of today. I'm sure there's plenty of people here who remember the million dollar asking price for #112. It did not sell for that to say the least.

For that money it should be 100% correct. First thing I see is the carburator, its a "LeMans" 715 Holley and they were only used on real Cobra's and 65 66 GT350's.

^^^ I look at carb, intake, wheels, valve covers and export brace as period correct upgrades that could be reversible to "original" pretty easily.

Beautiful car... even with its K code pedigree, I don’t see it being worth Shelby money.

If it's to be driven, I hope not too far. It's missing the clutch release fork spring, I think K codes had them too but I could be wrong. Might be a short drive.
Nice car but over priced. Rare does not always equal greed unless it's some off shore oil billionaire sheikh who doesn't really know cars.

some observations:
1. There was no interior decor (deluxe) option, but they added the brushed stainless to the dash. Then they added the brush panel to the standard door panel, when deluxe panels can be bought. Just dumb considering the value of the car. They also did not install the interior decor seat backs. A half way approach.
2. Rear of car - incorrect exhaust tips, but they got the gas cap GT paint color right.
3. If you think that the HiPo option is rare, it is, but the competition suspension is even more so. That would originally have 15" wheels and hubcaps. The mags are an understandable deviation, but I hope the buyer gets the original parts.
4. Plenty wrong under the hood - inner fenders mudded over, hood ground strap painted, yada yada The windshield washer bag looks like it needs a dose of viagra
5. Incorrect exhaust system
6. The speedo is missing the trip odometer. This thing is looking more and more like a Frankenstein. For this money, or realistically for less money, I would expect a rust free never restored one owner car.
7. Interesting that it was built in the furthest plant from the DSO. It would be interesting to know the distribution of 1967 289 HiPo builds, including GT350's.

Scarce car. We do know that there were a lot fewer K code Mustangs than GT350 Shelbys. That may have been a factor.

Strange that someone would put that much work into the car, and then botch it with things like wrong exhaust, wrong wheels, wrong shocks, wrong dash…

Just hoping to break even on a farmed out resto.:drunkies:
The Moss Green looks a shade or two too light in the pics to me.

I think if it were a lowish mile survivor might get that at auction though.

I agree that the K code and the Competition Handling Suspension make the car "rare". However at that price point, rare isn't enough. While it may be "Show Quality", it is not likely MCA Gold quality in its current configuration. Lastly, the block casting date is about 90 days before the car was assembled which pushes the block into the "likely non-matching territory" for me. IMHO the high value as presented is closer to $70K, and that would be at a Scottsdale auction in January. With enough liquor in the winning bidder, maybe even a bit higher. All in all, a nice car.

I hate that stuff. out of the 14 million blue cars produced that year, this is the only blue one with a run in the paint on the drivers side quarter panel, making this a 1 of 1 car!!

Hindsight that I passed up a clapped out '67 K-Code GT in the early '80's for $700..... fairly rust-free but "rode hard and put away wet". The next one was a '67 K-code GTA in 2000 for $7,500 in roadworthy condition, a couple months after I bought my '66.... kick myself twice.

Now, this looks to be a nice car, albeit with some "incorrect" parts and should fetch a decent dollar but, if you ask me, it's just TOO coincidental that the block has no VIN. While we all have heard the STORIES about not all HiPo's having been VIN'D, I, for one, have never seen this rare "unicorn" nor has anyone ever shown me irrefutable proof that one ever existed. Therefore, if I was standing in the auction gallery when this car passed through the lane, I don't think I'd bid more than $45-50k. That's just me, though.

Too many questions/issues for the asking price, but nice car nevertheless. You could get a 67 GT350 for not far from that price and have the Shelby pedigree to go with it.
