1968 Shelby GT500KR Fastback #03512

Candy Apple Red. 428CJ. C6 Automatic. 3. 50:1 Traction Lok Axle. 60. 00 miles.

I purchased the car in 2012 from the previous owner who had owned it for 21 years.   It was inspected and authenticated by a leading Shelby expert and SAAC concourse judge.   This is an original body panel/fiberglass car that was rotisserie restored in the late 90's using a single stage Glasurit enamel paint that still looks perfect.   There have only been 3. 00 miles put on this car since that restoration.   Since I have owned the car I have had the Interior. Motor. Rear End and many additional components rebuilt/restored by a leading Shelby expert.   When I acquired the car it was incredibly well sorted out and had all of the hard to find original KR parts present.   The CJ motor that was in the car was a late 67 block and I was able to source a May 68 CJ block and April heads (car is a June 8 build) so I decided to have a more correctly dated motor built for the car.   There have been less than 300 miles put on this motor since it's rebuild.   This car runs and drives beautifully.   Some of the details of the car:

o   Newly rebuilt 428 CJ- 490 ft/lb torque (reinforced main webs and C scratch on back of motor)

o   Newly rebuilt rear end- Correct Case/ Daytona Pinion/ 31 Spline axles
