Description:

The One and Only 1968 Shelby GT500 Fastback Prototype!!!! Recently completed World Class Restoration here at LMC. This incredibly special Shelby GT500 was earmarked to be something unique from the very beginning. Starting off life as a Lime Gold Green 1967 Shelby GT500 with factory air conditioning and 4 speed transmission, this car was selected by Shelby American to be used for testing purposes. The 1967 GT500s equipped with 4 speed transmissions and air conditioning were known for having some overheating issues and this would be the car used to remedy these issues. There are images of this special fastback out at tracks being tested along side the famous Super Snake in attempts to correct the over heating issue. From this testing the heat extracting gills on the A/C equipped cars was developed, an element predominantly found on all of the 1968 models as well. This particular car would also be the first 1967Shelbyto get what would become standard, oil cooler for big block 4 speed cars with air conditioning. Once the over heating issues were remedied, it was time to begin the design of the upcoming 1968 models, thats where the story of this Shelby takes yet another twist.

Upon its completion this car and its convertible cousin would be used for all the press photos, magazine ads and even Shelby commercials. Carroll Shelby even used this prototype personally for a period of time and can be seen driving the car in the original 1968 Shelby commercials. Once its duties were fulfilled as the prototype the car was sold off and per the Shelby World Registry went through a few owners and was ultimately restored per the original specs, as a 1967 Lime Gold Green GT500. Once the most recent owner acquired the car he discovered the very unique and special history. The decision was made to do a complete rotisserie restoration to the condition it was most famous for, as a prototype 1968. Legendary Motorcar Company was selected to perform the r
