Presented by Barrett-Jackson – This gorgeous KR, wearing Shelby #04110, pairs the original matching-numbers 428ci Cobra Jet V8 engine with C6 Select-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, with its shift lever coming out of the floor through a new-for-1968 Shelby-unique center console and factory air conditioning. The black deluxe bucket-seat interior is surrounded by tinted glass, Shelby’s autograph adorns the glove box door, and a Philco push-button AM radio and tilt steering column are among the other interior amenities. Outside, the Highland Green paint is accented with white rocker panel stripes, and Lucas driving lights are mounted in the grille. This car’s double A-arm front suspension has been rebuilt, and the chassis is equipped with power steering and power brakes. The KR rolls on Goodyear/Shelby Speedway 350 bias-ply blackwall tires wrapped around Shelby’s optional 10-spoke aluminum wheels. The history of this Shelby GT500KR is well-documented in the Shelby Registry. This highly detailed car is ready to be shown and driven.
This 1968 Shelby GT500KR will be selling with No Reserve during the 2021 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction, June 17-19.
