  • Beautiful car!

  • why the engine is blue and red, that is a pain in the ass. the rest is in sane.

  • damn, John Wick really let himself go

  • great video , i love it , not some collecter that just shoves it in the corner of there massive garage and polishes it ones a month ... and looks so much better than just changing everthing , go baby go ...

  • they are cars..they need to be driven..classic analogy.

  • but why this car was in that place with so much dirt on?

    • watch the barn find discovery of this car on this channel

  • I❤️Mustangs

  • 22:55...ARMI DA FUOCO DA PAURA...😤😮😤

  • Coolest way to spend 140k on a car.

  • Barn gt is the coolest tag I’ve ever seen.

  • Any color would look good on that Shelby. The puke green proves it, that's part of it's appeal. People see that car and are like "Daaaamn that Shelby even looks good in puke green!"

  • what a beuty

  • I was a senior in high school in 1967, grew up in a small town south of Phoenix AZ. One day a new guy moved into town who has just graduated from college with a degree in speech therapy. We got to hanging around together & one day he told me he was going down to Tucson, AZ on the weekend as he had bought a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang I really thought he was just making up a story. Monday afternoon someone rang my doorbell & when I opened the door he was standing there with a big grin on his face & a brand new Shelby GT 500 parked in front of my house. We spent that summer driving around town as well as out at our local 1/4 mile drag strip on Fri. & Sat. nights. Never owned a GT 500, but I did buy a new 1972 Mustang Mach I with a 351 Cleveland from the Ford dealership where my dad was the part manager for 40 yrs. I paid $4,500 brand new.

  • So he paid how many thousand for an appraisal that was within a G of the guy's valuation who appraised without even moving it? I'd get that old boys number and save some dough next time, then again it looks like Clark and Rusty derive quite a bit of pride from dropping names.

  • A number of people were giving you grief over the purchase. You hired an appraiser and offered an exceptionally fair price. Many people find that the cost of restoration exceeds what a buyer would pay at auction. It really is a labor of love.

    • Yes, absolutely, and thanks for those words fitly constructed, which is what this video is about.

  • Not a big car person, but deep respect for this guy pursuing his passion. Good on ya. Great video.

  • That is amazing. I would've kept it as original as possible too.

  • This guys documentary ruined the whole video

  • NOT posi track , can't handle - , nerds living their grade schooler dream days

  • You have recieved car's blessings

  • Vinegar and bleach is no good combo

  • They are cars they need to be driven hell yeah!

  • With guitars they take new ones and add imperfections. Then they sell them as reliced😂. Love this survivor just as it is!

  • Mad respect.

  • Wow man! This is probably the most perfect "restoration" work i've ever seen! Keeping the car orignal and actually driving it! I would have done it the exact same way. Restoring everything from nuts and bolts to paint on a old car removes the originality. End of story, history.

    • Incredibly well put, so couldn't agree more. I discovered this when I knew an original car and then saw it after the nut and bolt restoration. It was like, the car is gone.

  • needs positraction upgrade.

  • John Wick is officially jealous.

  • I see they didn't put the lights back in the middle. You have to admire him for keeping everything authentic, kudos!

  • Love it guys. Regards from London.

  • My dad has a numbers matching 1966 Mustang GT350H and paid 45k for it... Bought it off of someone before Hertz went out of business which has now put it up in value. My favourite mustang is still the GT500, but beggars can't be choosers. We also drive ours, as you should.

  • I better see you at Carlisle!!!!! I need to see that beautiful car in person😍😭

  • help me understand

  • I love the sentiment of "It'll only be original once." But for that much bread, mine is gonna look like it just rolled off the lot. Thanks for sharing.

  • I have a lot of respect for this process and this gentleman determined to accomplish it. A bold ego works with this process quite well as it is being shared with us. Car lovers and the rest of us can admire and applaud a piece of automotive history. There are, of course, countless pieces of automotive history; and it a pleasure to see someone able to invest in making this particular piece shine. This is global outreach people, around the world interest. 🙂

    • And I am glad that it all worked out for you. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    • It is nice to have to hand all the tech and material science the 21st century has to offer; developed year by year by year; thanks to people who really dig deep into the science and engineering of it all.

    • Let it be said that yes I can see all sorts of other vehicles rolling around. Experience counts. Regardless, the fun here is the Shelby here; and its tale of getting back on the road. 😀

  • 22:25 says it all. Killer car!

  • This is like pinball craze. There is some with too much replacement to be like new and others restored with details of what is was when in bars

  • Love this original restoration and care for HIstory and he's right these cars need to be driven! Also, love the shotguns casually just chilling in his office at the end lol.

  • What does this sound like a murder documentary

  • I thought I looked like my dad but wow

  • A lot of your money spent and no new paint job? Because you want to see some of the dents and pings? Idiot.. Smh

  • Too much boring talk 👎

  • It's cool to see old cars in a museum or at shows, but even better to see them on the road, doing what they ought to be doing. Awesome job to all involved!!!

  • Man that's beautiful... the little love spots like the dash just make it so amazingly badass. Made to drive.

  • THIS IS A DREAM!

  • nice doggos

  • Really cool!

  • Respect ✊ a fantastic find 😁really really appreciated the honesty and integrity of the owner . The way he treated the seller and how open he was with the cost of the restoration. Enjoy I figured you deserve it👍

  • *John Wick has entered the chat*

  • Hope you stopped off at Taco Casa.

  • I agree with you on being driven and totally redoing it. It hurts it more sitting than driving it. And it want be original if you replace some thing on it. I have a old 4020 John Deere I plan on restoring that was my dad's. And I plan on working it but not like it used to be.

  • Kudos to this guy for driving it and even getting the doggie inside ! That’s a true car enthusiast not a show piece !

  • 21:19 oh yeah...

  • Does anyone know the song at 15:07 in the background?

  • 10/10 for effort, just a shame it's such a hideous thing to start with.

  • Do what makes you happy, narrator reminds me of Huell Howser

  • Fake

  • 💯

  • After watching that Burn Out, I think the guy that rebuilt the differential owes you a refund. What's wrong with the Posi???

    • The rear differential is "open," Posi was optional in 1967.

  • Sorry I think it should have been repainted after you spent that much $ on it

  • "They're cars, they need to be driven." *Intro to Still D.R.E 😎THUG LIFE

  • 4:10 Wow. I was not a fan of the original green paint (for Mustangs, I would prefer the original blue with white stripes or white with blue stripes,) but once they really started cleaning it up and polishing it, it looks really nice. Especially with all black rims and tires...

  • Bless you guys for not being total scumbags and ripping off the poor family.

  • بمليون دولار

  • "is that a new dash pad?" INSTANTLY: "Nope!"

  • Dude, i was nearly moved to tears so many times during this project. First, that cat!? I was so hoping you were going to take her with. What a doll! Then, every single decision you made on that car i agreed with 100%! a man after my own heart! wow!!! i'm a musician (as well as an old car/bike lover) and i feel the same way about guitars. Those old faded finishes and paint jobs that come to life after a little lovin' & buffin' but still have the old specs and chips and dents. maybe i'm PMSing but that shit touches my heart. Thank you so sharing this with like-minded people and hopefully changing more people's minds about how they go about restoring ANYTHING old. these beautiful works of art need to be shared and appreciated, not sitting in f'in museums! Anybody can spend countless dollars replacing everything on something old. Chip Foose and such. Too nice and perfect and stripped of all personality. THIS is how you do it. So amazing! I can't couldn't give two shits about Shelbys. LOL! tons of respect for them, and i don't think they're ugly by any means, but i'm a mopar/chevy guy. No matter. You took art and extended its life and i'm and very thankful! ROCK ON!!! can't wait to watch the rest of your vids!

    • Thanks for "getting it," and expressing what happened so well.

    • AND a huge balls thanks for sharing the costs! so cool

  • You sir are an inspiration. Wow someone may one day do more fix ups or replace originals depending on what your son does or if you sell it but wow and to drive it. There's enough crazy people like me that would pay you $1,000 for a ride. Whatever the cars future is, I'm glad you got ahold of it and did what you did with it.

  • It puts a tear in my eye that you left the image original, youre the man.

  • How is that 67, thought that body style did not come out til 71

  • It seems that Americans don´t know what the seeatbelt is used for???

  • I mean i like leaving the car kinda original but the problem I have is that all that rust will keep spreading. also the engine was done so why not get all the technical parts restored and leave the body work in that coll old original style?

  • It's only an original car once?, Sorry, But that's failed logic, I don't believe the "rust", Was part of its original condition from "factory",

  • A GT 500 doesn't have Posi????

  • They need to be driven. Yes you are right.

  • Good burnout, for one wheel

  • I want to know what this guy does for a living to afford something like this.

    • We got into that quite a bit in the video, near the front, in his shop, and inside.

  • Great job guys, not sure how you get any thumbs down.

  • He sure knows how to be alive. use it and enjoy it, let the imperfections show character.

  • Great video

  • Husky palmo mix oooof. Keep kids away.

  • Bravo for keeping as much original imperfections and blemishes on the car as you did. Every little piece of imperfection tells a story. That car is a history piece, so let it tell its story!!

    • Well said, and I think this will be a trend in collector car restorations, made public here first. Isn't this cool? Did you watch the barn find of this car, too, on this channel?

  • I'm real keen to know the recipe for that mold/mildew spray. He said Vinegar with a little bleach but I want to know the exact recipe if you are willing to share.

  • To me the Mustang is just not REALLY a muscle car, and it was the ugliest of all the muscle cars. The 442 Oldsmobile, the SS 396, gto, trans am 455, and even though I HATE Doge the road runner, and charger would smoke a Mustang off the road.

  • Not a fully restoration what a shame !!

  • This was really great! The engine was a great find.

  • It would be more conceivable for me to build a working time machine, travel back to 1967, purchase the Shelby new, and then return via time machine back to the present, than it would be to develop the requisite patience, skill, and commitment to this restoration. I am humbled by your "re-creation". Kudos to all involved.

    • @Jerry Heasley ... And to think there were those who said my degree in English literature would amount to nothing! I thank you for the compliment.

    • And I am impressed by your use of the language to bring out what you feel to our understanding. Skillful writing, my friend.

  • Unicorn.

  • I'd respray that ugly green with orange/red colour shift paint... But then I'm a heathen. 😂

  • I do same with my dads car

  • Eleanor!

  • mustang all the way

  • I'm fucking tickled he's just driving it around after a fat cleaning and tune up. Lmao this dude right here is the real deal.

  • It's like video games, they need playin'. Storing them in a box is a waste.

  • As Sweet home Alabama plays etherealy in the background..

  • Cool story and cool car. nice :D

  • How much was the car when new, in today's money?

  • I LOVED THE SENTENCE. "They are cars, they need driven"!!

  • Ahhh, so that’s where I left it! Could I have it back now?

  • Thanks for sharing. Great car!

  • Awesome video and yes very refreshing to see and hear - cars need to be driven.

  • Por qué te llevaste a wudi :c
