Description
Lot #1336.1 - One of approximately 318 total KR convertibles produced and one of about 267 4 speed cars, the KR convertibles are not only a rare car, but also an incredibly rare Shelby. This car is #4147, well documented in not only the Shelby World Registry, but also with ownership history, important paperwork such as the original tags, warranty card, books and vintage photographs. In fact 4147 has a very interesting story. Its original owner is a young lady whose son convinced her she really needed a 427 Cobra for her new car. Upon arriving at the local Ford dealership to test drive the 427 Cobra on a rainy day in 1968 she decided that the Cobra was simply too impractical seeing as how the weather protection was lacking and there was nowhere to put a ski rack. As lock would have it, 4147 was there and waiting for a test drive. After getting pulled over for "burning rubber" on the way out of the dealership (and subsequently being let go by an amused and understanding officer), she purchased the KR. Equipped with power steering, tilt wheel, power brakes, shoulder harnesses, and a 3.50 Detroit locker rear, it is optioned just rright. It is a National SAAC Concours award winning car with less than 200 miles on a 2000 hr complete body off, nut and bolt restoration and is probably the finest in the country. Original does include: original invoice, warranty card, owners manual (signed by Carol Shelby) Shelby also signed the glovebox. This rare and appreciated gem is a must for any collection. This car will be featured this Febraury/ March on speed channels "Dream Car Garage" (6 episodes) DVD included.
