Though the Shelby name would continue to be used as a designation for high output Mustangs through the 1970 model year, Carrol Shelby himself would have little to no involvement in this program. One the most substantial changes for the 1968 production year, was the offering of the GT350 as a convertible. Despite what was perceived to be a strong consumer demand for a convertible model only 404 convertible 1968 GT350s were ever purchased making the 1968 Shelby GT350 Convertible one of the more collectible of the Shelby Mustangs. The Hagerty Valuation tool values these cars from $95,000 for a #4 condition car to $167,000 for a #1 condition car. This makes owning and driving this 1968 Shelby Mustang GT350 Convertible Tribute an outstanding value you can own and drive without fear of damaging a rare Shelby. This Mustang is a stunning to look at. While not an original yellow for the color choice on this drop top it is a nice upgrade from the factory Meadow Lark Yellow with black Shelby stripes and correct Shelby Cobra emblems. The paint is well applied over professional bodywork and presents very well with a deep luster and shine. The convertible black top is well fitted and shows little if any wear. The undercarriage is free of rust and there does not appear to be any indications of any substantial rust or accident repair. The body features the correct style twin scooped fiberglass hood and along with fiberglass rear deck lid with spoiler and rear fender scoops. The unique to only Shelby Mustang's is the 1965 Ford Galaxy taillights which combine with the other body accoutrements to give this convertible that look that is iconic yet timeless. This well executed tribute is finished off with the correct Shelby 10 spoke alloy wheels running on BF Goodrich Radial TA tires. The black interior is fully restored and shows little if any wear since restoration. The yellow GT350 seat inserts tie in nicely with the exterior color. The dash features the factory gauges and an Auto Meter column mounted tachometer. An additional set of Auto Meter C2 mechanical gauges are mounted in the console to ensure the engine vitals are well monitored. You will be transported back to 1968 as you grip the Shelby wood wheel and look over that louvered hood. Alpine Speakers will fill the cabin with your favorite cruising mix tape played over the Kenwood AM/FM Cassette Tape Deck that fits professionally in the dash. Under the hood this Mustang adds a little extra punch with a 302 V8 that has been bored and stroked to 347 CID and produces 400 HP. The engine compartment is show ready. Just pull into your local show or cruise in and pop the hood to show off the correct Shelby Cobra engine adornments. Subtle upgrades such as braided coolant hoses, chrome shock tower supports add to the neat engine compartment and it presents as well sorted and neatly organized.
