Description
Lot #668 - Original matching-numbers Highland Green KR 4-speed convertible. Including the original matching-numbers motor and transmission, as well as original sheet metal and fiberglass. Rotisserie restored to concours condition by Shelby restoration professionals in Riverside, CA. A Deluxe Marti Report and an original dealer invoice verify this Shelby's originality and are included in the sale. This KR was originally delivered to Gotham Ford in Manhattan. The Shelby Registry shows the car in California in 1982. This car was tucked away in a private collection for many years in California. The car was in exceptional original condition with the motor never having been taken out of the car. The car has never suffered any rust or accidents. The car has just received $9,000 in refinements with receipts. To quote the Marti Report, in 1968 there were 4,451 Shelbys made. 1,571 were GT500 KRs. 517 were convertibles. Of the convertibles, 267 were 4-speeds. Of those, 50 were painted Highland Green. Of those, 41 had black interior and 23 had white convertible tops. 18 of them had Traction-Lok rear axles. One of them was shipped to New York. This is that Shelby.
