1968 Shelby GT500 KR Convertible


1968 Shelby GT500 KR Convertible for sale!

The crown jewel of the Shelby kingdom is this 1968 Shelby GT500 KR Convertible (Click here to see the ad!). By Carroll Shelby’s own testimony it was his favorite Shelby model. In its day this one was the one to own. Black with a black interior and white top, it is one of only 33 black KR convertibles produced in 1968 (based on approximately 6 percent of total production.) This one was said to have been rotisserie restored in 2012 with as many assembly line NOS parts as possible. It achieved the Triple Crown of Shelby national level awards: the SAAC, Mid America Team Shelby and MCA Gold. Now that it is an “older restoration” and has been retired from competition, it is no longer considered a “concours quality No. 1 trailer queen.” But it had its day. The new owner will find the price to be a little easier on the pocket book, though. But it can still strike quite a pose, can’t it?
