Wild horses are born to run free, any attempt to tame them will only lead to disappointment. Sitting in the saddle of a 1968 Shelby Mustang is no different. Every buck of the 428ci Cobra Jet V8 begs the rider to go from jogging to full sprint with the kick of a foot. This is what it feels like to be the King of the Road.
The graceful gallop and powerful stride of the 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR 4-Speed defines the muscle car experience. This particular 1968 GT500KR is available and looking for the right owner. The Acapulco Blue exterior is gorgeous while the black interior is a desirable feature in muscle era cars.
This is one of 1,053 “King of the Road” edition fastback Mustangs produced from May through July of 1968. Built on June 6th, 1968, the beautiful condition of this car is a testament to the refurbishment and maintenance efforts throughout the years.
The engine was rebuilt in 2016, making the 4-speed manual transmission experience as authentic as possible. Factory-style air conditioning ensures every Sunday drive is pleasant, no matter how hot the summer gets. Power steering only adds to the comfort. A heavy-duty suspension, along with power front disc brakes, provide great handling with ample stopping power in this 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR.
With only 77,000 miles on the odometer and recent service to many key components, there is no reason to stable this horse. This Shelby GT500 is ready to reign the roads once again, the only thing missing is the driver. Are you ready to take the reins?
