1968 Shelby GT500I have more than 100 more pictures if needed.
An Authentic with complete documentation 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible which was equipped from the factory with a rare 4 Speed toploader. Only 153 Shelby GT500 convertibles had this transmission and engine combination.
The car is presently in Los Angeles, California area for inspection which I recommend to see just how nice the car is.
This was one of the first few 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertibles ever built. Order to Fordwas received 08/07/1967. Car was serialized on 11/8/1967.Number 0056 is believed to be the first 1968 Shelby GT500 Convertible produced. This Shelbys ship date shows it being about the 15th or earlier GT500 convertible released.
This Restored Shelby only has 52,678 original miles and has had 4 owners in total. I have all three other previous owners contact info and have spoken to them in the past.
It is in its factory original Wimbledon White with black top.(1 of only 8) in that combination.
It is in its factory black interior with decor bucket seats and has original Ford ultra rare 1968 headrest.
Original 428-4V PI engine and drivetrain.Car runs and drives excellent. Less than a 1000 miles on it since restored. This is a really nice car.
All most all of the parts are restored originals or NOS parts.All original Ford factory sheet metal and all original fiberglass with the exception of a NOS Ford front valance. Original 4 Speed radiator was completely gone through and restored to concourse level with new nos core.
Still retains its factory option power steering and power front disc brakes.
It has all the original Data & VIN plates along with original owners manuals, warranty card, build sheet, factory invoice, option list order sheet and Marti report. This car comes with all the original documentation which is a must for a car like this.
Ebay limits auctions to only 24 pictures but I can email more pictures to a serious buyer or answer any questions you may have. No trades please as I am down sizing my collection which is the reason for selling.
I have personally owned this Shelby for over 10 years.
This Shelby is priced to sell. Please do your research. The last two 4-Speed GT500 Convertibles sold at auction this year at Scottsdale Barrett Jackson for 165k and the end of last year for 170k and they were not as nice and documented as this Shelby.
Car is sold as is where is.
