1968 Shelby GT500KR

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1968 Shelby GT500KR. This Shelby is finished in attractive Highland Green Metallic over Black Knitted Decor bucket seats and shows 86,000 miles. It is a largely original and very correct car that has been with a respected Georgia-based Ford collector for over a decade. The Marti report is included -- on top of the standard Shelby features it was optioned with power disk brakes, power steering, shoulder harnesses, fold-down rear seat, AM radio and tilt column (this may have been an error -- or it was changed -- as it now has a standard column).

Although it's been in a collection and is in excellent condition, this Shelby has not been relegated to "trailer queen" status. Its owner has driven it and serviced it regularly over the last decade, and thanks to regular exercise it runs and drives great. At the time of purchase in 2006 it was advertised as having a recently rebuilt drivetrain and suspension -- that was approximately 2,000 miles ago. Paint and body are nice with good panel gaps. The interior remains mostly as it left the factory as we believe the upholstery, dash pad, woodgrain, gauges, headliner, sun visors and possibly the carpet to be original. Door cards and some trim bits have been replaced over the years.

The engine compartment is nicely detailed and the date-correct (and believed to be original) 428 Cobra Jet engine retains its smog pump and emissions equipment. All accessories under the hood are period-correct with appropriate FoMoCo part numbers, right down to the Autolite battery. Recent clutch replacement with an upgraded Centerforce kit. This is an excellent example for touring, rallies or regional shows.
