518 KR convertibles built and is confirmed by Ford & Marti records. Last KR convertible built #04423.

Do you know the Ford Production date of that car?  It was not in the Shelby Registry

Yes, the car we were speaking of did not ship until December 20, 1968 (by rail it says).

Ask a Registrar / Date of Production for Last 1968 GT500KR Convertible

Does anyone know when the last GT500KR Convertible was built in July of 1968?
Also, what was the last day of production for Shelbys in 1968?

The total number was originally thought to be 518 but was later changed to 525.

The last one by date is not necessarily the highest number on the VIN tag either although the KR's are the most consistent with Ford v Shelby numbers being in chronological order.

So regardless of how someone words it, it could be "controversial".

"One of the last built" might be a better way to phrase it?

I am not going to use anything like that in my description unless it was known, I am not sure it would matter anyway.  I do not think July 19 would be the last Conv KR before the august break.   Since there were 5XX made you would assume there were some in the last weeks of July too.

EDIT:  To be clear, I am not using the sign, it is just among the items that were in the trunk of the car and will be in the trunk of the car when the new owner gets it.

Additionally, this sign had the wrong production date (close but off by a couple days) and the Ford letter was dated 2004 and there are Marti Reports from 2006 and 2007.  So, I assume the sign was made before 2004.

Numerically 4423 is listed as the last KR convertible
Thanks so much.  Looking at the sign and thinking about it, it does make sense that he was telling people how many were made.
4423 does not have the production date listed in the Shelby register.

Yes, the numbers are known. Itís unlikely you have the last KR built.

ď518Ē is a reference to the total number of convertible KRs built.

A picture would be most helpful, Iím surmising from your post, this was a sign made by a previous owner?

Because cars were not always built in strict numerical order, itís probably better to describe a car by its Shelby serial number. In this case your Shelby number would need to be around 4400, in order to be a contender for the last convertible.

I think it is very doubtful too, which is why I was confused by the sign.  I believe it was just poor wording on the sign.  It is 4047 but the production date does NOT match the Shelby number sequence because the original owner ordered the car and then canceled his order.  So, it was built on July 19, 1968 according to Ford or July18 according to Marti.   Sold in February of 1969.
The build date is getting close to the end but I figured not close enough.  You helped me with this car with a couple referrals.  That plan was vetoed by my wife (I am building to 57 restomods, corvette and bel air) and I spent way too much fixing everything I could find from the car sitting 5 years.   I am trying to gather, sort and then put together the information and documents I have in some manner that the new owner will be able to read through them.

Does anyone know the shelby numbers of the last 1968 GT500KR Convertible produced?
Are these known?  I have a puzzling sign that was in the bottom of a box of stuff I am going through saying "Production Number 518" with no context and when I read through all the other papers I do not really seen any citation or support unless it is on one of the documents that are photocopies of stuff that I really do not understand the context of.
Trying to prepare and sort all the docs for the next owner and want to make sure I am accurate about things.
