    Consignment #: 5550 Sign In to View Price


    This three owner completely Concourse restored 1968 Shelby GT 500 KR convertible is one of the finest KR convertibles on the planet. This car is super solid, rust free, nut and built Concourse restoration. It has a super nice quality body, with show quality repaint. The paint job is a superb example, with a flawless, completely showable finish. This car is truly a NO Expense Spared restoration. The mileage is believed to be actual at 40,000.

    The underside of the car is detailed to MCA (Mustang Club of America) Concourse tailored status. This is one of the finest, and most detailed undercarriages you will ever find on any early Mustang/Shelby. This is a truly gorgeous car including when viewed from the underside. The undercarriage features all the original sheet metal from front to rear, rocker to rocker. The floors, inner/outer rockers, front/rear torque boxes, inner aprons, shock towers, wheelhouses, trunk pans, trunk drop-offs etc, are ALL ORIGINAL TO THE CAR. Even the front fenders, door skins, door shells, front and rear valances, are all-original to the car.

    The suspension/undercarriage componentry is absolutely brand new, from front to rear as well. The undercarriage is properly duplicated/painted, as Ford would have done it on the assembly line.

    The doors, hood, deck lid, convertible top, etc all shut and fit excellent. The original Shelby body tag is still in place on the LH apron, as is the body buck tag, and LH door tag, which is an exact reproduction made by Marti Autoworks, as the original was very weathered. All the trim, grille, post pieces, stainless trims emblems, etc are in EXCELLENT restored condition.

    The under hood is complete and has been detailed with every proper piece/component. Everything is in complete working order under the hood. All of the original Ford electrical harnesses.

    The interior is the trim tag correct Black Vinyl Deluxe interior. The interior was completely redone when the car was restored as well. The console, convertible top frame, proper Stewart-Warner gauges (correct with alternator, NOT Amps), etc are all original to the car. The wheels are brand new 10-spoke aluminum 15 inch Shelby American reproduction pieces.

    Mechanically speaking you couldn’t ask for a NEWER, BETTER, MORE SERVICED car. The engine has been completely rebuilt, with a stock style rebuild. The correct original engine zanies an 8F26 (May 26th, 1968) date, and the car was built 28F (June 28). The transmission is the correct RUG-AE big input/big output transmission, which has been rebuilt, and detailed to the correct standards. The rear end ratio is the correct 3.50 Traction lock unit. The brakes are new throughout, with new wheel cylinders, rebuilt original calipers, new brake hoses, completely new brake lines front to rear, master cylinder, shoes, pads, and hardware.

    The car runs, and drives out AWESOME. This vehicle is being offered to the person who is looking for something other than your “average” restoration. Keep in mind that you are only dealing with 1 of 318 GT-500 convertibles in the World! Very few of them are taken to the caliber of restoration you see in front of you. This is an excellent opportunity to own an absolutely phenomenally restored Shelby that will attract attention, and awards everywhere it is shown/driven.
