Lot #1269.1 - The 1968 Shelby GT500 KR "King of the Road" edition is the ultimate classic Shelby Mustang. Loaded with the best performance and handling components available at the time, the GT500 KR was the king of the muscle cars in its day. This '68 GT500 KR was a complete, running and driving car when purchased from the second owner in 2005. During a 2-year rotisserie restoration, no expense was spared to bring this classic Shelby back to showroom condition. Very few replacement parts were necessary to complete the restoration. Most of the car consists of restored original parts. The builder planned to keep this GT500 KR in his personal collection, and restored the car with special attention to even the smallest detail. The drivetrain consists of the original 428 Cobra Jet V8 engine and 3-speed C6 automatic transmission. Both were professionally rebuilt during the restoration. Factory options include tilt-away steering column, tinted glass, power steering, power disc brakes and air conditioning. The paint color is Highland Green and the interior color is black. This GT500 KR is one of only 299 cars with this drivetrain combination and factory air conditioning. The Deluxe Marti Report is included with the car.
