1968 Shelby GT500-KR Convertible.

By  | 

1968 Shelby GT500-KR Convertible.

 

Engine: 428cu. Cobra Jet V8.
Transmission: C6 auto.
3:00 Trac-Lok 9″ Diff.
Trim: GT500-KR King of The Road.
Built June 26th, 1968.
This car received a comprehensive refinish done in the 80s by its 2nd owner, Chuck Brown in CA. Not restored, just maintained.
Every number and code are matching.
None original –  the wheel centers are outlined in red.  It is a Code R Highland Green car.  In the 80s, Chuck Brown took the attitude that I agree with, “they are only original once’ and this car cannot ever make that claim again even if the only thing done was paint a fender……!  The car has been red for way longer than it has been green.

    First time I’ve ever seen a KR convertible. Must be very rare.
