LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1968 Shelby Mustang GT 500KR
Ford introduced the Mustang in April 1964 as a mid-year production sensation which quickly became the icon of a new breed of cars called ‘pony cars’. Today, a 'pillar of American automotive lore' and extraordinarily attractive, the Mustang has been capturing the hearts of drivers for over 50 years…however, the Shelby Mustang is the ultimate asphalt warrior from the blue oval stable.
Ford, with assistance from Carroll Shelby, put forward 'the next hot item in the street wars' with the 1968 Shelby GT500 KR Cobra Jet. The mean and powerful look was achieved by Shelby American through body modifications including extending the front end by three inches, adding a fiberglass hood with fully functioning dual front scoops and hot air extraction vents. It had a brand-new version of the 428 Police Interceptor engine fitted with improved-breathing heads and larger exhaust manifolds giving birth to the 428 CJ. The GT500 KR or "King of the Road" powered by a pavement eating Cobra Jet 428 engine was deviously rated at only 335 horsepower when in fact, it pumped out at least 400 horsepower. Powerful enough to send the GT500 KR from 0 to 60 mph in only 6.9 seconds with a 103 mph quarter-mile speed. Additionally, the KR had larger brakes, under-hood suspension bracing, and staggered rear shocks to reduce axle wind-up and wheel hop. At the time, Car Life magazine said “The car is so impressive, so intimidating to challengers, that there are no challengers”. Limited production and awesome power makes the 1968 GT500 KR one of the most collectible ’Stangs of all time.
This Factory “I” Code Lime Gold/Green with Black Decor interior rolled off the assembly line at the Metuchen N.J. plant on July 18, 1968. Subsequently, it was shipped to Bill Currie Ford in Tampa, Florida, on August 26, 1968 with a MSRP price of $5,422.46. Legendary Motorcar acquired this vehicle from the first and original owner from Brandon, Florida, who purchased his dream car on October 1, 1968. He passed along a binder, complete with the following preserved documents: original title, Shelby Cobra KR Spec Brochure, pictures, original Owner’s Manual, original Maintenance Folio, original Dealer Brochure, Florida Vehicle Inspections receipts during all his years of ownership and his ’68 Florida Plate for the KR that also bear many years of storage dust. Last but not least, pictures of the car when it was new with the owners baby son sitting on the hood, his wife and as well as himself with his new King of the Road. This fully documented factory Shelby according to the Marti Report was well equipped with the GT Equipment Group, Power Disc Brakes, Tilt-Away Power Steering Wheel, factory Selectaire - Air Conditioning, AM Radio, black Deluxe Mustang GT interior Décor Group with 140-mph Speedometer and 8000-rpm Tach, Trip Odometer, Sport Deck Rear Seat, and race inspired Roll Bar with Shoulder Harnesses. Under the Shelby ram air induction hood, lies the original 428 Cobra Jet with a single four barrel carburetor mated to a C-6 Select Shift automatic transmission with a 3.00 ratio conventional rear axle. Additionally, this Shelby retains the steel wheels and factory wheel covers as it came from the factory. A rare find in this factory original never restored state, this Shelby is in remarkably original condition inside and out. The car maintains its original paint, interior, chrome, drivetrain. With close inspection one car see so many factory original features seldom seen including; factory applied red oxide primer with body color overspray and blacked out pinch welds, final inspections marking can be found all around the undercarriage and the factory sloppy trunk finish. For a purest, such an interesting find to say the least, as these types of cars rarely come along. Original, never restored, fully documented one owner KR.

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.

Idag klassiska Fords är mycket populär bland entusiaster och ett stort urval av klassiska Fords finns till försäljning på www.ClassicDigest.com
