68' Shelby GT500KR 4 speed restoration
This fully original Shelby GT500 KR 4 speed was found by PTTM in the USA and after its restoration was performed it was sold by PTTM to a Dutch client.
The car is a genuine and rare early 68' Shelby GT with its complete original drivetrain that consist of a 428cui Cobra Jet big block hooked up to the famous Toploader 4 speed manual transmission.
Its also a rare factory correct Highland green metallic paint car with black interior. Its in the official Shelby registry and has a Marti report to prove its original condition and details.
The car was super solid and very original and all its important parts were still in place. The car was in need of a complete but mild restoration ( no body or chassis metal work was needed) which was performed in our shop in 2018/19.
The complete engine and drive line, all brakes, steering and handling parts and the complete interior was also rebuild to factory spec's. The complete underside was also upgraded and re-painted back in the correct red-oxide style coating.
All in all this rare and true Shelby turned out in as-new condition and was highly detailed and factory correct. The car was tested and fine tuned after its restoration and rebuild was completed for many miles and runs and drives just like it did back when it as new.
Just another Stunning Shelby restoration performed in our shop !
Once it was completed it was sold in our showroom to a Dutch client which was very pleased with the results and the cars restoration.
Sold in 2019.
