7. Jim Morrison’s Shelby GT500
One of the most intriguing stories about legendary missing cars is the tale about the 1967 Shelby GT500 Jim Morrison owned. He was the lead singer and songwriter for The Doors, a famous Los Angeles-based rock band. The car was a gift from Electra Records to celebrate the success of their debut album in 1967. It was a dark blue 1967 Shelby GT500 with a white interior and a manual transmission. Morrison was fond of the car and drove it often. He even featured it in his art film, When You’re Strange, giving it the nickname, “Blue Lady.” One urban legend claims Morrison crashed the car after a night of heavy drinking, leaving it by the side of the road. When he came to pick it up, the car was gone. Others say Morrison left the car at the airport when he went to France.
After his tragic death from an overdose, they impounded and sold the car. There is also a rumor that the new owner used it as a getaway car in the late 1970s, scrapping it to get rid of the evidence. In any case, the car is missing. For years, the Mustang community thought Morrison’s Shelby was gone. However, several years ago, a female forum user asked around for Shelby spare parts, claiming she owned a “deceased rock star’s GT 500.” The author has since deleted the posts, but many Shelby fans hope the legendary “Blue Lady” is still alive somewhere.
