Just like on another episode of American Pickers, a classic car was extracted from the dust and dirt of a dilapidated barn in the middle of the American Midwest. Having sat for the past forty years, this 1967 Shelby GT500 has finally seen the light of day once again.
Shelby restorer Jeff Yergovich took the call to go inspect the car for a potential buyer. There may be nothing Mr. Yergovich doesn't know about the Shelby, as seen by his ultra-thorough inspection in the video below. Every bolt, every wire, every stroke of paint cannot hide from his keenly trained eyes. If you enjoy super in depth Shelby mechanics, here's the video for you!
While (disappointingly) many aspects, big and small, of this particular car are not original, a major one being that it's original 428 engine was swapped for a 427, it still called to its buyer, Bob Folkestad. He agreed to a sales price of $65,000, as is. But fear not over the rust, decay, and aftermarket parts, because he has a new friend to help him restore it back to it's original glory.
