'68 KR on BaT
« on: June 08, 2020, 01:40:03 AM »

This 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR is one of 1,053 “King of the Road” fastback models produced during a three-month period from May through July of 1968. The car was built on June 6th and was sold new in Indianapolis. It later spent time in Kentucky, North Carolina, Texas, and Michigan, before undergoing a refurbishment in Ohio in the mid-2000s. It was acquired by the current owner in 2014 from a Canadian dealer and brought to California, where the 428ci Cobra Jet V8 was rebuilt in 2016. Additional equipment includes a four-speed manual transmission, 3.50:1 Traction-Lok differential, heavy duty suspension setup, front disc brakes, and power steering. Service in February 2020 included replacing the power steering pump, axle shafts, and wheel bearings, as well as servicing the air conditioning system. Finished in Acapulco Blue over black knitted vinyl, this GT500KR is included in the SAAC registry and is accompanied by a Deluxe Marti Report and certification letters from Ford. It is now offered on behalf of the current owner with records and registration documents dating back to 1970, a factory build sheet, two owner’s manuals, and a clean California title.

Great looking car. Other than the usual reproduction parts I don't see any issues. Most folks would like the addition of factory air and the bluetooth stereo.

Nice ride
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
