Lot #1338 - This is a genuine Shelby 1968 GT500KR convertible with 4-speed manual transmission, 10-spoke wheels and tilt steering. This is a very fine example of a restored KR. It has a documented history and is listed in the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) registry, the authority on Shelby automobiles. This car began life in Lime Green and was painted red when restored. The restoration was completed by Kar Kraft, the shop that worked on many Shelbys under contract from Ford. A copy of the registration shows that it was registered at the time to Susan Minch, wife of Scott Minch, owner of Kar Kraft. It was subsequently owned by a state representative of the SAAC. The car was restored with many re-creations of factory touches, such as paint approval stamps. The Shelby has won many awards, including the Lew Spencer from SAAC 33 and a Senior Award from the American Automobile Club of America. The date codes reveal that all of the components are date-correct and the drivetrain is original.
