Description

Lot #1324 - One of only 158 with this paint/trim combination and one of only 402 GT500 convertibles made in 1968. This early production 1968 Shelby GT500 convertible is truly a beauty. Originally ordered to Watkins Ford in Scottsdale, AZ. Finished in Wimbledon White with black interior bucket seats, this Shelby is the recipient of a rotisserie restoration and finished in the highest quality. What makes this car special is that it is one of only a few convertibles ordered with factory air. Powered by a 428cid Police Interceptor V8 rated at 360hp with a C-6 automatic transmission and a 715cfm Holley carburetor mounted on an aluminum manifold. Other factory options include power steering, power front brakes, air conditioning, tachometer and trip odometer, tinted glass and wheel well moldings.
