Fresh off its restoration, the GT350 was invited to be one of the few automobiles displayed at the Saturday Night Gala that proceeds the Greater Valley Concours d’Elegance. The next day, on the show field, the Shelby had not only earned the “Best in Class” award, but the judges unanimously voted for it to receive the “Most Fun to Drive” award. Not bad for your first outing…
The Shelby’s next event was California’s premiere Central Coast car event, “The Classic at Pismo Beach Car Show.” Over 1000 cars were in attendance that weekend. As the Shelby snaked its way to the registration table, it was instantly selected as a “Gold Class Winner,” allowing it to compete in a designated area against a mere 17 other vehicles for the “Grand Prize”. Sunday morning it was announced the 1967 Shelby GT 350 was the winner of the coveted “Meguiar’s Platinum Best of Show Award.”
This 1967 Shelby GT350 is part of the Francis Collection at present day. #1210 is still shown on occasion across California, and remains a cornerstone of the collection. Most importantly, it is exercised regularly, much like the rest of the collectables. It has certainly earned its place amongst Ford’s greatest vehicles.
