Vehicle Description

Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible.

Sometimes descriptions for cars are easier to write than other times. Mustang Club of America Triple Crown Gold Level Award. End of description- kidding but it could for all intents and purposes be.

This GT500 Convertible is one of just 402 produced in the 1968 model year. Per the Marti Elite report it is one of 157 total Shelby convertibles made in Lime Gold paint with black interior. The color combination is stunning. The Marti also outlines Shoulder Harness, Black Power Top w/Glass Backlite, Extra Cooling Package, Visibility Group, Wheel Lip Moldings, Power Disc Brakes, Power Steering AM Radio, Interior Decor Group and Tachometer and Trip Meter.

Reviewing the awards this car has received since its complete, every nut and bolt, ground up restoration there are a number of them- ALL GOLD LEVEL. Judged in 2016 Mustang Club of America Gold at the regional in Myrtle Beach SC. Then on to the 2017 All Ford Show at Tulsa, OK where it receives Mid America Gold. Next it was 2017 Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) Gold at Indianapolis, Indiana. Finally, in 2017 it won Mustang Club of America Grand Nationals Gold in Overland Park, Kansas. The MCA Triple Crown Award was received for completing at GOLD LEVEL at three different venues, with different judges, all within a single show season.

So what, big deal, who cares. Well, if you want the best of the best- If you want bulletproof documents that the car you are going to own is INVESTMENT GRADE and INDISPUTEABLE then you know what multiple gold judging means. If you don't need or want that there are plenty of Shelby "drivers" out there in the world for your consideration. They are less money. They are also not this car. Rarely do I say a car is too nice to be driven- this is that car, but here's the thing- if you want it, can afford it and choose to drive it then have at it and congratulations.

This great GT500 is showing almost 18000 miles and by all indications in its history the miles are believed to be accurate.

The photos on this car are a very accurate representation of the car. In looking at the Shelby Registry this car at one point in its life was outfitted with a 427 Side Oiler. Now it is a correct 428 Police Interceptor with all the trimmings. Once again, judged Gold.

Buy the Best and Never Be Disappointed.

Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.

We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet.... We pride ourselves on having good cars and representing them properly.
