Description

Lot #1285 - 1 of 518 1968 Shelby GT500 KR convertibles built. This car was produced on July 15, 1968. The engine date code is 8F11, meaning it was cast on June 11, 1968. The Shelby was ordered with a 4-speed transmission, 3.50 Traction-Lok axle ratio, white power convertible top with glass backlite, power steering, power front disc brakes, tilt-away steering column and 428 CJ engine. It was delivered to E.A. Swendson Ford in Milwaukee, WI. Sometime in the early 80's, it went to Seattle under the ownership of Randy Dumphy. It was a very original car and Dumphy chose to upgrade the AM radio to an AM/FM radio and re-painted the white exterior to red. The interior remains original. The current owner purchased the car from Dumphy in approximately 1990, resold to a friend about 10 years later and then bought it back a few years after that. This GT500 KR performs like the Shelby that made history in 1968. 54,295 actual miles. Documented with a Marti Report and listed in the Shelby Registry.
