1968 Shelby GT500KR Convertible

This stunning 1968 Shelby GT500KR Convertible was one of our cars to watch at Barrett-Jackson this year. Not only is the GT500KR droptop extremely rare – just 318 were built – but this particular example is one of just 43 painted in Bright Yellow. It’s also in immaculate condition having undergone a rotisserie restoration and boasting its original engine, transmission, body panels and interior. That was reflection in the price tag, as it took a total of $308,000 for the new owner to take the car home.

You can read the full vehicle description and see our live gallery of photos below.

Vehicle Description:

A documented 20,000 original mile GT500 KR 4-speed convertible, one of 43 produced in Shelby special paint code WT6066, Bright Yellow. Original engine, transmission and rear axle. Concours level rotisserie restoration performed by Shelby specialist. All original body panels and complete mint original interior. Documentation includes the original Build Sheet, Marti Autoworks Elite Report, original Shelby VIN tag, door warranty tag, body buck tag and all Ford serial number stampings. Perhaps the finest example of a documented 4-speed, Yellow, KR convertible in existence. The ultimate Shelby drop-top.
