Description for Shelby Cobra 1968

Immaculately restored 1968 Shelby GT500KR Convertible, Shelby no. 2339. Documented in Shelby Register back to 1968 (will include the registry book). Well cared for survivor with 66k miles. Interior and exterior bordering on flawless for age, and stunning in person as the pictures show. Preserved for decades as a collector car. Engine is rebuilt and recently tuned-up to perfection, the Ram Air 428 Cobra Jet purrs and absolutely roars when you step on it. The car is thrilling to drive and attracts crowds. I can send videos of driving. $25k+ spent in last 2.5 years on performance rebuilds of steering, original Holly KR carburetor sent away to Holly for complete factory restore, wiring restore, professional $3k 9-year ceramic coat and interior treatment
50-year professional Ford mechanic and ex-president of Mustang club (there is nobody with more experience with Ford engines) spent 4 months last winter tuning engine and getting all mechanical in top performance shape, I can put you in contact for a run-down of all work he completed, he spent weeks with the car in early 2022.
