After the raw, track-oriented nature of the original 1965-1966 Shelby Mustangs failed to translate into customer sales, the 1967 Shelby range saw the beginning of a shift in emphasis toward a more civilized, better equipped and uniquely styled vehicle designed to appeal to well-heeled professionals. Based on the '67 Mustang, now longer, wider and more spacious, the Shelby range was expanded to include a big-block derivative for the first time. The GT350 was once again powered by the classic K-Code 'Hi-Po' 289-cid V8 for 1967, using an aluminium intake manifold and uprated carburettor to develop 306 bhp. A choice of transmission options was available - either the four-speed close-ratio top loader manual box or C-4 automatic. Power brakes and steering were mandatory options and heavy-duty suspension ensured the GT350 handled superbly. More civilized the GT350 might have been (automatic transmissions and air conditioning proving popular options), but Shelby insisted on mandatory options like shoulder harnesses, a fold-down rear seat, power brakes and power windows. More distinctive styling set the 1967 Shelbys apart from lesser Mustangs through the extensive use of fibreglass to keep production costs (and weight) down. In total there were 1,175 GT350s made in 1967, all of them based on the fastback body style (nearly twice as many GT500s were made that year, making the GT350 considerably rarer today) and genuine examples are now highly prized by Shelby and Mustang collectors around the globe.
