This matching-numbers Shelby GT500KR benefited from a professional concours nut-and-bolt restoration and presents as the day it arrived at a dealer's showroom in July 1968. The Deluxe Marti Report proves this car was born with all the best options Ford and Shelby offered in 1968, including the 428ci Cobra Jet engine, 4-speed Toploader manual transmission with 3.00 Traction-Lok rear axle, GT Equipment Group, Visibility Group, Sport Deck rear fold-down seat, power steering, power front disc brakes, tilt-away steering column, air conditioning, AM radio, Interior Decor Group and tinted glass. Full documentation includes the original Build Sheet and original Order Form from Shelby Automotive, the original Shelby invoice, Window Sticker, Owner Card and a Carroll Shelby-signed visor with Certificate of Authenticity for Auto Memorabilia. The original matching-numbers engine was completely and professionally rebuilt to stock specs, and the suspension and rear end received a full professional makeover. It has correct exhaust, ECS date-coded glass and decals, and professionally built reproduction Koni shocks. The rust-free California body was dipped, stripped and e-coated. The steel wheels are original with correct reproduction tires. The original Cobra wheel covers and all-bright trim were professionally restored, and all new wiring was installed throughout the car. The original seatbelts were restored and the gauges, radio and dash were professionally done. No detail was overlooked in restoring this Shelby to all of its original glory.
