Description
Lot #1364 - This is one of only 22 built in Raven Black with a white top. It has its original sheet metal and Shelby fiberglass. It was meticulously restored to concours standards by trained craftsman over a period of two years using as many NOS and original parts as possible. The KR was powered by Ford's new-for-1968 428ci Cobra Jet engine, conservatively rated at 335hp. This features a beautifully detailed example, date-code-correct for its build and restored to factory specifications. No previous owner has reported removing the original engine. It is backed by its original serialized Toploader 4-speed manual transmission and high nodular-content rear case. A detailed documentation book compiled during the restoration includes all casting numbers and date codes found on the car. The Shelby interior retains its original Shelby console and lid, Stewart Warner green-line gauges, 140 mph speedometer, 8,000 rpm tachometer and the original padded roll bar. It was optioned with black decor bucket seats, tilt-away steering column, AM radio and the Interior Decor Group. It rides on Shelby 10-spoke wheels wrapped in period-correct Goodyear Speedway large-letter tires. It retains its other Shelby unique parts including Lucas fog lamps and sequential taillights. It is documented by the Shelby World Registry, the original Order Sheets, a copy of the original invoice, the original warranty plate, the Buck Tag and an Elite Marti Report. Original documents are included. 42,000 original miles.
