MARTI REPORT IN HAND

ONE OF 1. 17 GT500 KR SHELBY'S IN 1968
KR TRANSLATES TO KING OF THE ROAD

RESTORATION WITH RESPECT TO ORIGINAL CONDITION

1968 SHELBY COBRA GT500KR FASTBACK
"KING OF THE ROAD"
428 COBRA JET V-8

LESS THAN 5. 00 MILES SINCE COMPLETED

                                                                                                                                                            


Just arrived. this beautiful Shelby Cobra GT500KR was one of only 1. 17 built in 1968.
Factory 428 CJ Ram Air V-8 ready to go.


Its initials KR stood for "King of the Road" and to back it up the mid-year 1968 KR had Ford's
new 428 Cobra Jet engine with Ram Air Induction and traction-lock 3. 50 rear end all
standard on the KR. The Cobra Jet engine was very successful at the drags and was
Super Stock Eliminator Champ at the 1968 Winternationals beating expensive Hemi's etc.
Shelby's 1967 GT 500 had led Ford's pony car with a Thunderbird 428 engine with two
four-barrel carburetors. The 1968 GT500 used a 428 Police Interceptor with single four barrel
carburetor. Then in April '68. Ford unveiled an even-hotter version of the 428 Police Interceptor
(more durable engine) with better breathing heads and much bigger exhaust manifolds and
called the soup'd up 428 Cop Motor the 428 Cobra Jet. The 428CJ was offered in the Mustang.
Cougar. Cyclone and Fairlane models. The GT 500-KR's 428 had the same suspiciously
low 335-bhp rating as other Cobra Jets. but the total torque rating of 440 foot-pounds
at 3400 RPM told the real story. Shelby's KR version had diecast aluminum cast with
"Cobra Lemans" proudly broadcasting Ford's FE engine family victory
over Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966 and 1967.
