1968 Ford Shelby GT500 KING OF THE ROAD Vehicle Description
Up for grabs is a beautiful 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible GT500 King of the Road edition Shelby.  Yes that is the cream of the crop.  Lovingly cared for, this car is immaculate and ready for new ownership.  Call for questions.  It is not a numbers matching motor, but is period correct 428 CJ. Call or text 832-379-8817. 

The ULTIMATE COLLECTIBLE SHELBY?? Some people think so. It certainly is one of the most collectible and desirable Shelby ever made and this particular KR convertible is a factory 4-speed car. The list of options include; Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Top, Air Conditioning and those beautiful 10 spoke wheels. To me, the color is one id the best available for the Shelby because of the way the incredible lines are accentuated by the beautiful Acapulco Blue paint. If you have ever been fortunate enough to be a driver or even a passenger in one of the 1968 ½ Cobra Jets, you are in for a treat. Unless, SPEED scares you. When they came out with these Cobra Jets in mid-year 1968, they dominated their class at the Nationals where the BIG DOGS are. In the finals it was two Cobra Jets racing for the crown. NO MOPARS!!! NO CHEVYS!!!!

Obviously the KR name was appropriate for KING OF THE ROAD! The Wall Street Journal came out with a listing of Blue Chip investments. And one of the best investments according to them was ANY SHELBY. As I said earlier, this is certainly one of the best Shelby’s for collectability desirability and most importantly FUN TO DRIVE. If you are thinking about a purchase of a nice Shelby don’t miss the boat on this one.

Here is the story on trans/engine/rear: The transmission says RUG-AE and according to the Shelby book that is correct. The rear end has a date code of 7M21 which translate to December 21, 1967. The code obviously works although I probably will have people email me saying that it doesn’t. The engine is not the original engine as it has a date code of 8K21 on it; which it too late for this car.

Please notice that the buck tag and the original door tag plus the VIN tag are still with the car. Also, notice how nice it is underneath the doors on the car. This is normally where it rusts on most Mustangs. Please also notice the factory spot welds in the trunk of the car. These original spot welds being there is very rare. The miles on this car seems to be very well documented by the Shelby Registry. The mileage on the car is 63,000 which appears to be correct according to the Shelby Registry. One thing more, this Shelby is a Tasca Ford car, which is really cool. I have tried to take as many pictures as I can for you. Please email me if you have any questions.
