This beautiful and well sorted Shelby is a three owner car. originally born as 1968 1/2 KR #3096 and shipped to New York State where it lived in a garage until 2008 when it moved to Northern California for a complete restoration. It won many trophies in the 1990's (supplied) while in the care of the second owner. who passed away in 2005. I purchased the car from his estate in 2008 and began a full detailed restoration at two local high end shops in Northern California. The car was completely stripped and blasted to bare metal. all body work done on original panels in metal with original fiberglass parts restored to as new. All the wiring. top assembly. brake lines. brakes systems. steering systems. suspension systems. fuel systems. electrical system. engine components. full exhaust system. rebuilt transmission with new gears. new shift linkage. the interior has mostly original components in execellent condition. knobs. with original patina. correct style black carpet. trunk mats and sealing rubber is all new.
