Sale Price: $132,000

TMN Rating: Not yet rated

TMN On-Site Review: Not yet reviewed

Seller Comments: This beautiful factory Candy Apple Red 4-speed GT500KR is one of the last Shelbys built in 1968. It is #4434 of 4450 built. The car was cosmeticly restored back in the 90’s and still looks great. It has recently been cleaned, detailed and had a few minor repairs made to return the car back to a great show driver quality standard. The car still has its original VIN plate and data plate on the door. It also has the original buck tag, original trans tag and original rear end tag. The block is dated 8G9 but the VIN is not present on the block or the heads. The transmission bell housing is dated 8G5. All of the fiberglass and sheetmetal are original with the exception of the driver quarter panel and patches on both of the trunk turn downs. Overall the car is in beautiful shape and ready to be driven and enjoyed. It is ready for the road but certainly nice enough to display at any national or local show.
