Title: Severe Health Problem forces sale of my beloved 1968 GT500KR 427 #2575
Post by: Side-Oilers on May 17, 2022, 02:07:37 PM
BIG PRICE DROP!  $180,000

1968 SHELBY GT500KR #2575

From the Collection of Motor Trend former Editor-in-Chief, C. Van Tune.


Aluminum Shelby 427 Side-Oiler stroked to 468 cubes.

Dynoed at 579 hp & 597 lb/ft torque.


Original 4-speed Top-Loader.

Fully Sorted. Runs Cool.  It's a badass of a car, but easy to drive.

$195,000.   $180,000 takes it. (Over $285k invested.)  No trades.


Life can be hard.  Mine just got that way.  My just-diagnosed Stage IV lung cancer is forcing me to change many things about my life, including selling my beloved KR. This diagnosis has my family very worried, because at my last physical exam 6 months ago I was completely healthy.  And I've never smoked anything but tires!

I’ve decided to list my KR here first, in hopes that one of our own buys this spectacularly fast & fun Shelby.  I bought it in 1982.  Always a CA car.

PM me for a very detailed 7-page list of the car’s equipment, specs, condition, modifications and original items.

Happy to send photos, videos, etc.   Inspections welcomed.  Car is located in San Diego, CA.

Thanks guys,
Van

PS: Sorry about the Brand D car in the background. That's the screen car from the Mannix TV series.

A good friend of mine had a similar diagnosis about three years ago. He has been in remission for maybe 18 months. It's been a tough battle for him. Like you he never smoked, but for many decades everyone smoked everywhere. So as we get older, some of us are not too lucky.

Wish you the best and do what the doc says.

And, yes, I will do what the doctors say.  I'm a pretty independent guy, but I already promised my wife that too. 

Life can change in an instant.  Enjoy it today.

Thanks again,

BTW:

I have a very in-depth 7-page listing of the details of my car to send to anyone interested.

All the specifics of the new engine, driveline, suspension, brakes, etc.

Condition of paint, interior, undercarriage, etc.

A list of everything on the car that's original. And what isn't.

How it drives, rides, handles and performs.

This car's history.  And anything else I can think of to mention. 

PM me with your contact info and I'll send it out.  I also have several driving videos, walk-arounds, cold-start and hot start examples, and tons of photos I can send.

I am happy to discuss the car with you on the phone.  In the interest of privacy, I'd prefer if you'd PM me your number and I'll call you.

Here's a pix from Willow Springs Raceway on Oct 2015, Cobra Owner's Club meet.  The KR ran fast and 100% reliably all weekend. Proof of concept and execution.  These days, I merely drive it on the street.  It is very quick, yet easy to drive.

Post by: Side-Oilers on May 21, 2022, 12:10:29 PM
BODY:

This is a CA car since new.  No Rust or body rot.

Dry body & undercarriage, floors, trunk.   No patch panels.

Original bumpers.

Original gas cap.

Original taillight lenses.

Original sheet metal and fiberglass.

The fiberglass lines up about as good as when new. Hood has a slight bow in it, typical of many Shelbys of this era.

The 30-year-old bare-metal paint job is still thick, shiny, and generally holding up well. But, there are several small blemished areas, plus some rock chips and a few small cracks in the fiberglass.  I’m not a paint fanatic, so it doesn’t bother me. I’d call the paint quality a “5 footer”.

Undercarriage has been thoroughly cleaned, by hand, revealing correct orange-red oxide factory primer undercoating.

Fender lips have been rolled to fit the larger tires.



DETAILS:

Correct Blue GT500KR Lower Door Stripes made by Shelby restoration expert Tim Lea.

New Wiring Harnesses from 1968 Shelby expert coralsnake.com

New Ultima red top battery installed 150 miles ago.

The headlights are new FoMoCo logo halogens.

Taillights and dashboard lights converted to brighter LEDs.

The original fog lights were not on the car when I bought it, so I installed (in 1982) a pair of powerful Cibie Series 175 quartz-iodine fog lights. You can actually see with these! 

The chromed taillight grilles were not on the car when I bought it.  I like the look better without them. (They’re readily available online.)

No spare tire or jack.

Upsized 22 gallon fuel tank.

Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, Van, if you didn't see my answer to your DM that I sent.  I will stay in touch.  I haven't been too active on this site due to some funny little virus going around.  But I beat its a$$.  I did buy a supply of Ivermectin (Human Doctor prescribed I might add) back last November and it came in handy.  I took the full treatment the next morning as symptoms developed on Saturday afternoon.  Did it make a difference?  Can't tell.  But glad I had it if for nothing more than a placebo, a "hand holder" so to speak.  For you, I suggest scaling back on sugar intake and do some intermittent fasting.  Starve it out.  But I am no medical doctor.  Just regurgitating what I have read on the subject. 

Best wishes to you and your family,

Richard

Thanks Mike.  I'm doing my best to hang in there.  Still having as much car fun as I can.

An old Motor Trend buddy of mine came to the house yesterday and brought his badazz Pantera. He let me drive it, and then I gave him a fast ride in the KR. His jaw was on the ground at the KR's performance (faster than the Pantera) and handling.

He said if he had the $$ he'd buy my car in an instant.  He's going to list it on the Pantera site with his personal recommendation.  I'm getting several interested people so far, from the SAAC forum, and it will be a great fully-sorted Shelby for someone.

Best regards,
Van

Your efforts to sell your car strike a note with me. I always wonder what I would do if I had to sell. My families health history is pretty terrible but I actually had my first real physical since June of 1969 and remarkably have no real issues.
When I retired over 6 years ago I told the wife I wanted to make as many car show as I could before I either ran out of money, the car couldn’t make it or I was unable to. I figure I got 8-10 years left before I’m too feeble
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and I hope for something miraculous to come your way
Meanwhile take care

More info...

INCLUDED WITH SALE:

Boxes of receipts and technical information from restoration and mechanical work done. 

A shelf full of spare parts, extras, and some take-off parts.

The framed Elite Marti Report.

Photostat copies of 1968 warranty work invoices. (Thanks Mongo!)

The 1982 L.A. Times newspaper ad from when I bought the car.

I will also give the buyer copies of all the vintage & restoration photos of the car that I have. 


THIS CAR’S HISTORY:

Sold new at Chet Monez Ford in Fairfield CA in June 1968.

Original owner’s name is R. J. Holland of Vacaville, CA.

Ownership chain known back to 1977. 

The CA License Plate currently registered on the car is its original “XQB 138” Black-and-Yellow plate number.

Clear CA title in my name. 


WHY BUY THIS KR?:

If you’re looking for a trailer queen and concours show winner, this is not the car.  I built this KR to incorporate the best of all things Shelby:  A very fast, fun and reliable muscle car that is also comfortable around town, on the highway, or at the track.

This car is a badass, but it is remarkably easy to drive.

Excellent HP and Torque throughout RPM range. 

Fully Sorted and Dialed-In during the seven years since completion.

Doesn’t overheat in traffic. 

Exhaust doesn’t drone at highway speeds. Quiets down nicely in overdrive.

Engine runs well on super unleaded pump gas.


I took the car to Willow Springs Raceway once again, in late 2015, after the new driveline was properly broken in. The car ran fast, and without any problems, all weekend.  Never overheated, puked or otherwise got cranky.

For those of you who know the Willow track layout, my KR was caught on the radar gun at the end of the front straight at 133 mph. And it still had a lot more to go. 

Thanks to the Gear Vendors overdrive, 5700 rpm = 150 mph.

That was all I needed to experience. It’s been a street driven car ever since.

Car is located in San Diego, CA.

Inspections welcomed.

VIN:  8T02R204740-2575

This is a genuine 1968 Shelby GT500KR.  Guaranteed.

I’m C. Van Tune.  Guaranteed.  (Google me.) 

I am happy to answer any and all questions, send more photos, videos, etc.

PM me with your contact info. I will reply ASAP.

Car just listed on Hemmings.com at $198,000.  I'll still honor the $195,000 to any SAAC person.
