A Mustang Collector's Dream Going Across the Auction Block
Every Mustang collector's dream: A rare 1968 Ford Mustang GT500KR, 1-Of-1 Shelby is hitting the auction block at the Atlantic City Classic Car Auction in February. According to their auction page, this gem belongs to a long term owner and a Mustang and Shelby collector, who purhased it new in Missouri. This 1968 Shelby GT500KR convertible has the fabulous 428CI Cobra Jet V8, which pushes out somewhere around 335 horsepower, though some say it is closer to 400 horsepower. Also equipped with 4BBL carb and, as you would expect any Shelby car, a "fun, fast, and highly efficient automatic transmission which allows for smooth transferring of speed and linear power progression."
