LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1968 Shelby GT350 Convertible.
In 1968 a total of 4,451 Shelby Mustangs were produced for the model year. It also marked the year that Ford took over production of the Shelby vehicles with operations moving to Livonia, Michigan from California. The styling changes for 1968 were minor with the front of the vehicle restyled resulting in more aggressive appearance. The headlights switched back to the single seven-inch unit configuration with Lucas fog lamps positioned inside the grill. The hood was once again a fiberglass unit with repositioned scoops and air-extraction louvers.
According to the Marti Report, this 1968 Shelby GT350 Convertible rolled off the line on April, 4, 1968 in its factory Highland Green finish. It is powered by a numbers matching 302-4V V8 GT350 engine and upgraded 4 speed manual transmission.
