Vehicle Description

The 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350 was touted as being a complete surprise that needed to be tried. Carroll Shelby reasoned that a true GT needed everything for high performance pleasure, with comfort and safety engineered into the platform instead of being tacked on equipment as afterthought options. That is why when you first experience one of these legendary machines, it is quite common to be astonished in its style with its subtle changes in the hood, grille, sides and rear deck that offered a fresh and exclusive look. Interior luxuries were also found with bucket seats, walnut woodgrain appliques, front center console, courtesy lights and complete instrumentation. Even a rollbar was standard on all models. Performance on the GT 350 was courtesy of a Shelby-prepared 302-cid, 250-hp HiPo four-barrel carb V-8 engine that produces smooth usable power, in this case connected to an automatic transmission. This road car had features that were designed and incorporated by racecar builders that allowed you to enjoy ribbons of road to the best of your abilities. Accompanied by an Elite Marti Report and also listed in the Shelby Registry; this car continues to be seen in its confirmed color combination of code Wimbledon White with Black dcor vinyl bucket seats and a black power-operated convertible top with glass backlite (the only change from the Marti Report). The car was to be delivered February 8, 1968 but was actually finalized 3 days prior to the final build, on February 5th. The cars destination was Gotham Ford in NYC and arrived on the lot before the expected date with an MSRP of $4,746.15 and a dealer cost of $3,915.31.This vehicle is 1 of 158 with this paint and trim options, and the only available vehicle online with these options. This numbers matching GT350 underwent a full nut and bolt rotisserie restoration in Eastern Long Island at a very reputable Mustang shop and has less than 500 miles on it since the build. We have photo documentation and a marti report on the vehicle; better than new, it would make a great addition to any collection!
