I NEVER THOUGHT THIS CAR WOULD BE UP FOR SALE. WE LOOKED FOR YEARS FOR A SPECIAL PAINT GT 500 KR AND FOUND THIS CAR ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO AND ADDED IT TO OUR COLLECTION.  SPECIAL PAINT 1968 SHELBYS ARE VERY RARE. ONLY 159 1968 SHELBYS WERE BUILT WITH SPECIAL PAINT. THAT IS 3. 5% OF THE TOTAL 1968 PRODUCTION OF 4450 CARS. THIS IS ONE OF 48 1968 SHELBY CONVERTIBLES WITH SPECIAL PAINT ( 6 GT 350 CONVERTIBLES WERE PAINTED SPECIAL PAINT CODE WT-6066 ALONG WITH 42 GT 500KR CONVERTIBLES) THIS IS A VERY RARE AUTOMOBILE.  

 

 THIS IS A RUST FREE SHELBY. NEVER HAD ANY RUST. IT APPEARS TO HAVE THE ORIGINAL ENGINE TRANSMISSION AND REAR END ALONG WITH THE ORIGINAL CARBURATOR. nbsp; DISTRIBUTOR. XHAUST MANIFOLDS. PS PUMP. HIFTER AND DRIVE SHAFT ALONG WITH MANY OTHER ORIGINAL PARTS. IT WAS MISSING THE STARTER DELAY SO I BOUGHT AN ORIGINAL UNIT ( NOT A REPRO) WITHOUT INTERNAL BOARD FROM PETER DISHER. THE SMOG WAS MISSING SO WE BOUGHT A SMOG SYSTEM FOR THE CAR.  THE EXHAUST WAS REPLACED WITH NEW REPRODUCTION SYSTEM FROM THE MANIFOLDS BACK TO THE TIPS.  428 COBRA JET ENGINE HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REBUILT ( VERY HIGH END REBUILD TO STOCK SPECS WITH STAINLESS VALVES. nbsp; FORD IRON ADJUSTABLE ROCKERS. BORED . 030 OVER FORGED PISTIONS. ARP ROD BOLTS AND BALANCED) WITH LESS THAN 2000 MILES ALONG WITH A NEW CLUTCH.  ENGINE HAS STOCK CJ IDLE AND RUNS VERY STRONG. TRANSMISSION AND REAR END ARE SMOOTH AND QUIET. STOPS AND STEERS VERY WELL. READY TO BUY. DRIVE AND ENJOY OR TAKE TO THE NEXT LEVEL. NEVER RESTORED BUT WELL TAKEN CARE OF. ONE REPAINT. NEW TOP AND INTERIOR SINCE NEW . PAINT. INTERIOR AND TOP SHOW VERY WELL.   PLEASE ASK ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU BID. CAR IS IN FORT LAUDERDALE FLORIDA. NO ZERO OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK BIDDERS. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK.
