LMC is very proud to offer for this 1968 Shelby GT500KR Convertible

  Mid-way through the 1968 model year, Ford introduced what would become one of its most famous engines, the 428 Cobra Jet. It was an upgraded version of the previously available Police Interceptor 428. Of course, this meant that the GT500 from Shelby was going to be upgraded as well and with that it required some name change to signify the upgrade. The GT500 KR was released with KR signifying of course the legendary “King of the Road”.

  Sold new at Larsen Ford Inc., this 1968 Shelby GT500 KR is finished in the very attractive factory ordered Highland Green paint with black décor bucket seat interior and black convertible soft top. As with all King Of The Road models, it is powered by the “R” code 428 Cobra Jet engine backed by a optional 4-speed Top Loader transmission sending power to a 3.50 traction-Lok differential. This KR is optioned with GT equipment group, power steering, power front disc brakes, visibility group, AM radio, interior décor group and tilt-away steering column. This car comes with full documentation courtesy of Marti Auto Works and is also listed in the Shelby American Registry.

  The KR has always been a top of the line muscle car, brutal power but with all the options. These factors which made them a sought after car when new still hold true today as they remain highly desirable and collectable; this car is an opportunity to obtain a truly legendary Shelby automobile.
