Designed by Shelby American and produced by Ford this GT500KR has all the best high-performance features available at the time including the much sought after 428 cubic Ford Cobra engine. The 428 Cobra produced a thunderous 335 horsepower and developed 440 foot-pounds of torque in a hurry. The potent powerplant is connected to a top-loader four-speed manual transmission and traction-lok limited slip rear axle. Power steering and power front disc brakes help keeps things in control and makes driving a pleasure. This Shelby convertible possesses its original body panels as well as its completely mint original interior. Even the miles on the odometer are believed to be correct at just a bit over 20K. This GT500KR was certainly well preserved its entire life and looks showroom new today. The legend Carroll Shelby himself personally sat in this convertible and proudly signed the passenger side dashboard.
