Description
No Reserve Classics is proud to present to you the real, deal, and highly optioned 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500 Convertible! Its authenticity and province have been cataloged with the Shelby registry with documented mileage. According to the Elite Marti Report, only 402 Convertibles were ever made, and out of those, 153 were equipped with a 4 speed manual, and only 1 out of 9 ever configured as she sits here today. The build date of this Shelby is February 29th, 1968, Shelby No. 2902.

This .....
very early 1968 Shelby GT500 is packed with Shelby historical significance, not only as the first production year that Shelby built convertibles but also for its long-term duty as a Shelby engineering vehicle. And when you think about America's most revered pony car - your mind is set on this quintessential piece of automotive history!

The GT500 threw fuel on the muscle car horsepower wars not only by adding power but also by introducing the most iconic and aggressive Mustang styling ever created. Wide, functional hood scoops, revised grill opening with fog lights, air scoops, new deck lid, taillight design, and of course the GT500 ornamentation sprinkled throughout. The white GT500 rocker accents complement the Highland Green paint and matches the white power convertible top with a 2-piece glass. Not only did Shelby engineer fast cars - they knew all about styling and designing!

As we lift up the fiberglass hood, you'll be greeted with the high-performance Ford 428-4V GT500 Engine mated to the Toploader 4-Speed Manual Transmission! Power is sent to the BF Goodrich White Letter Radial T/A Tires through the proven Ford 9” Rear End with Posi. An absolute blast rowing through each gear and cruising through town or your local car show! It is also equipped with power brakes, power steering, and the competition handling package. So no matter where you go with this Shelby GT500 Convertible, you'll feel in total control!

DISCLAIMER:

Although this car looks absolutely stunning, please understand that this is still a 50 year old car with imperfections as it wasn't restored yesterday and has some mileage since the build. And due to our inventory size, we are unable to drive every vehicle for long distances. We do 40-60 miles between inspections, test drives, the video, etc. We cannot guarantee that every gauge, light, window, horn, option, function, etc. will work as it should. Please check your local state inspection requirements. We do our best to inspect these vehicles in every detail and note any imperfections in the ad. As with all classic cars, it will need odds and ends down the road as you begin to drive it more often! Many times, these vintage vehicles can sit for long periods of time and seals harden and gaskets may begin to leak once you begin to drive them. However, this will continue to be a sought-after classic car that you will be proud to own and very happy to drive in! The information contained within this ad is solely for convenience.
