wikipedia shows 67 for the gt 500. 428 police interceptor was the engine. seems like it is the same block as 360, 390, etc.

All Shelbys thru '67 were fastbacks (GT350 thru '66; GT350 or GT500 fr '67 on) and either fastbacks or convertibles fr '68 on. If it was just a matter of installing a big block powertrain it would be much simpler than aquiring the multitude of "Shelby specific" parts necessary to clone even a mediocre GT500. Short answer is: must be 1967 & up.
