1967 Shelby G.T.350 / G.T.500 Specification Sheet


Did you know that there were two different versions of the 1967 Shelby G.T.350 / G.T.500 Specification Sheet? An initial release and later a revised version.


The front of the two-sided ‘spec sheet’ included a G.T. 350 pencil sketch. This same illustration was also on the cover of the “1967 Shelby G.T.350 / G.T.500 Color Guide and Accessories” pre-production sales brochure and the “10 Steps to a Successful Shelby G.T.350 / G.T.500 Public Announcement November 10” brochure. The back of the document lists several specifications and included a G.T. 500 cut-away illustration. 


Note: There is a separate topic on the different versions of the cut-away illustration we’ve identified.



It’s likely that the original spec sheet would have been sent-out to dealers in preparation for the official product launch date of November 10, 1966. 



The revised version of the spec sheet bears a Revised date of February 5, 1967 

(‘Rev 2/5/67’ below the cut-away illustration on the back).



While the copy on the front page of the two versions of the spec sheet is identical, the back page has a few differences:
