Auctioned on Saturday, April 5, 2008

Not Sold at a High Bid of $165,000

    A matching numbers, fully-documented 1968 Shelby GT500 KR fastback, this King of the Road is equipped with the original 428 cubic inch Cobra Jet V8 engine, backed by a four-speed manual transmission, and a 3.50:1 Traction-Lok rear axle. It is finished in Candy Apple Red and features such interior appointments as black knitted décor bucket seats, sport deck rear seat and tilt-away steering column. It is also well-equipped with the GT equipment group, visibility group, power steering and power front disc brakes.

    It is only one of four Shelbys shipped to Canada with these options and colors and they were all sold at SUD Automobile Inc., in Longueuil Quebec. It has remained in Canada for its entire life, and the current vendor is only the fourth registered owner from new. This Shelby is completely documented with build sheet, Marti Report, window sticker and is listed in the Shelby registry. The sale of this GT500KR represents a rare oppurtunity to own a great car with an outstanding pedigree.
