During the time in which the GT500 was designed, Ford was fresh off the heels of a dominating showing at Le Mans. This was a tremendous source of pride for the U.S. automotive manufacturer, especially considering that such efforts had dethroned renowned performance car manufacturer, Ferrari, in the process. Early in the GT500’s development, it was decided that the latest Shelby creation would not come standard with the 427 cubic-inch V8 of GT40 fame. Instead, the GT500 featured a 428 cubic-inch V8 “Police Interceptor” powerplant. This engine would be modified to increase output, and provide the magnitude of performance that Shelby envisioned for the GT500. Learn more about the '67 Shelby GT500.
