Vehicle Description

1968 Shelby GT500 KR For 1968, Ford replaced the previous 428 with the Cobra Jet 428, which featured larger valve heads, an intake manifold borrowed from the race-ready 427, and ram air induction, all aimed at pushing horsepower toward 400. It powered the new GT500 KR (King of the Road), which was the fastest, most luxurious Mustang to date. This fastback features a padded rollbar, as well as interior upgrades such as woodgrain trim and unique gauges, the exterior for the GT500 features a fiberglass nose and tail section, functional hood scoops, and four side air scoops. This Shelby is powered by a period correct, 428 Cobra Jet engine. The engine has approximately 150 miles on it and runs very well. It has tons of the correct parts, from the cast long style manifolds to the fan clutch and oil filter adapter. The smog system and original style air cleaner have been removed during its life. It runs cool even in the Arizona temperature. The transmission is a 4 speed manual with a new Hurst shifter and recently received a new clutch. The rear end has been rebuilt and correct 3.50 gears installed. The Exhaust system has recently been replaced with a factory style system correct for 1968 GT500KR's. The Acapulco Blue paint is in good shape but does show some flaws due to age. The interior is still in really good condition and the center console is autographed by the legendary, Carroll Shelby. The Deluxe Marti Report proves this is a Real Deal, Shelby GT500 KR. With only 1,053 of these ever produced, there is far fewer than that remaining. This car is very period correct. Get your hands on this investment before you can't find one. Call today.
