A very rare Shelby was profiled in the December 2013 issue of Vintage Roadcar (The Only One – 1967 Shelby GT 500 Convertible). It was the only 1967 G.T. 500 convertible ever built. At the time, it was believed to have been built as a prototype for the upcoming 1968 model. Brian Styles, and his team, undertook a careful restoration of the car returning it to how it looked in those advertisements for the ’68 convertible. Well, it turns out that this car was never actually a prototype, the story is much, much better. Styles tells us a bit more about himself, his muscle car collection and what it took to learn the full story of the only 1967 G.T. 500 Convertible.
