1968 Shelby GT500-KR

1968 Shelby GT500-KR Convertible, Shelby 3854 - FACTORY AC, 428 cu. in. Cobra-Jet V-8 engine, C6 auto, 3:00 Trac-Lok 9" Diff.  Built June 26th, 1968 this Shelby is a substantial, rare and very documented car in many publications going back to the 80s as it sits exactly today. Original miles, original body and interior,  Numbers match everywhere.  This car received a comprehensive refinish done in the 80s by its 2nd owner, Chuck Brown in CA documented not only in photos, but many publications of that era..  This was never a left for dead or done for profit car.  It was not a torn up neglected car or just a VIN used to cash in.   This is not a "just restored car"  It was, always was and still is a very nice mid #1 level example that has been loved all of its life.  I wont quote production #s on KR Convertibles as that is redundant if you know these cars, but of course will mention the fact that Factory AC on and GT500KR Convertible is a needle in the haystack and really is what puts this car over the top as a rare collector.

  The outlined red wheels are as you see in the 80s publications.  I leave them that way as the documentation trail stays in tact. I personally would not have done that, but it is kind of neat and keeps with magazines this car was featured in at a time when most all of these cars were left for dead.

No, the space savers were available for 68, according to many were never put in Shelby.  It was changed and was added in 80s.
