Yes, it will fit...but you also have to use the SHELBY hood (longer), headlamps and grille assembly.

Erythnul-Just the nose piece by itself would require quite a lot more parts like KULTULZ pointed out but If you want to do that coupe in Shelby style go for it as it will be different and I for one really like the coupe better anyway. Of coarse Shelby never built a coupe(that I know of anyway) so just don't try and pass it off as the real thing. I have a 64-1/2 coupe done in GT 350 style and I am in the process of building another one but you would be surprised at the negative comments I get, don't bother me a bit as it's my car and I like it this way and so do a lot of others. What all can you get with that nose piece? Most anything you will need is available from most parts suppliers but it can get costly if you have to buy a lot of new parts.

There were 67 Coupes.

In 1968, FORD built a coupe that was patterned after the SHELBY. In all actuality, it was a design adventure as FORD was beginning to force SHELBY himself out of the car's production. One was called a CALIFORNIA SPECIAL and another was called HI COUNTRY SPECIAL and was sold around the Denver area.



It used stock front sheet metal but had the spoiler on the decklid and quarter extensions.

This may give you some more styling ideas. As long as it is done in good taste and you don't mark it SHELBY, it should be OK.

-CALIFORNIA SPECIAL-

Most everything is still available.

The California special has always been one of my favorite mustangs but like Shelbys they are hard to find. My mustangs are done in GT 350 style and paint scheme and I used some COBRA emblems but I left off the shelby name and I never try to pass it off as anything but what it is, a custom mustang. I will post some pics if I can get it to work,never tried before.
