The 1967 GT500 Shelby Mustang 427 Shelby “Super Snake”,
VIN# 67402F4A00544, is a special model built at Shelby American for Mel Burns
Ford. Intended to be the first of 50 but no other Super Snake was built due to
the retail Value of $7,500 and a 427 Cobra could be bought for roughly the same
amount. Driven by Carroll Shelby at Goodyear test track in Texas for tire
