68 GT500KR 04370
« on: November 04, 2021, 11:16:01 AM »
Up for auction now on ebay.  Looks to be a solid original car with a paint change.   Seller says 1 of 6 in this paint/trim combo but the Marti says 1 of 55.  I'm not sure I ever saw a white/saddle KR?

Not familiar with that dealership either.  Bill Price Ford, Reading PA.

Nice documentation.

1 of 55 for the Shelby Mustang fastback: GT350, Gt500, GT500KR. Could be 1 of 6 KRs. Seemed like the final price would have been strong money for this car in the condition it was in? Am I off base?

I agree,
1 of 55 in the Marti report is for all white fastbacks with saddle trim (across all models GT350, GT500, & GT500KR)

The 1 of 6 is not listed anywhere on the deluxe marti report. If there was an elite report it might list that somewhere, but it could be for anything from model, transmission, or just to the shipping location. Marti lists anything to get the cars to appear more rare.
What book is the ad referring to?

Vinman would know the exact numbers. A few decades ago he broke my vert down specifically.

Yes the registrar knows, but I was told he does not do individual requests. Its the last thing he wants to do. If you want that kind of trivia, you have to pay for it

I think  he might  do it for actual owners but I wouldn't expect Vinman to do it for cars for sale.
