This unique  original 1968 Shelby

GT350 4 speed in the desirable Acapulco blue metallic factory color, with

georgeus tan interior and equipped with many options. 


The car is one of

only 528 68’ Shelby GT350's 4 speeds ever produced and its one of approx. only 8 GT350 cars! in this color combination. Combined with this cars options it might

be a true and documented 1 of 1 ! ever produced! .So how rare is that. PTTM is proud to

present this great and VERY rare true Shelby to it's clients. 


Acapulco blue metallic is just

one of the best colors on these cars as it makes the car's lines and shapes

stand out more than on any other color. This combined with its Shelby GT350

side stripes and its light colored interior just makes it a very good-looking

car and for sure one of the best designed muscle cars of its time. 


In 1968 the all new Shelby GT350 was still a very

desirable car and with its hipo 289 V8 engine combined with its toploader 4

speed manual transmission a tuff car to beat. Being a much lighter engine than

the 428, the handling and all out performance of the car was maybe even the

better car against its brother the GT500. It’s well known under the Shelby

fan’s and collectors that a GT350 with a manual 4 speed was the car to beat

back in 1968.


For the 1968 model year Shelby had red-designed the car to look more modern and

more unique against a base mustang fastback than ever before. With its special

nose pieces and trim, the lightweight hood and trunk lid, the roll cage and 4

point seatbelts, the side scoops, special Shelby steering wheel, upgraded

suspension and handling packages and more, the 1968 Shelby GT350 and also the

GT500 were unique cars that were ready to be used for the track and on the

streets. And the all really carried Carol’s race pedigree, and they looked very

promising to be used as race thorough breads as well.  


Finding an original Shelby GT350 4 speed is already something very rare these

days, especially because much less where produced than the GT500 and this car

is a true, documented 54000 original mile car. That's probably also the reason

why this car has survived all these years in its current condition. The

car spend its entire live in the dry and sunny states and was sold new to its

first owner James E Bridges in Omaha Nebraska through the McFadens Company in

the same town. After that according to the Shelby registry, the car stayed in

this area until around 2010 when it was sold to its last owner who lived in Ohio.

Mileage was than only around 53000!.   


So the car spent almost its entire live in Nebraska, and was throughout its live hardly ever driven and apparently well maintained as its today, still in

an amazing and very original condition. And it's completely ready to be driven

and enjoyed. Its overall quality is very good and it was freshly painted in its

factory original color a few years ago. At the same time the car received some

detailing.


The last owner was afraid that he would ruin the original engine of the car and

he replaced it by freshly build version of the same type but with even more

performance. However the original engine comes with the car and is in very good

and running condition. On request we can drop that engine in as well, but it’s a

nice additional feature we think to have the original engine well taken care of

outside of the car as now you can really drive and fool around with the current

engine. If that one has a problem, well than the original and desirable

original one is still safe with the car, and it won’t affect the car's overall

value.


Besides the fact that this rare time capsule has

all its important Shelby components, like the fiberglass hood, trunk lid and

scoops still in place, the complete interior is bone stock original as well and

no aftermarket or incorrect pieces were found. The only change is that a more

modern type but correct Shelby cobra steering wheel was installed, but that

only ad’s to the car’s sporty appearance. But the most important thing what we

can confirm is that the complete engine, all its components, the transmission,  the radiator and all details were left

untouched and are original to the car. So this car is numbers matching,

even with the additional engine installed.


Both engine’s are fully inspected by us and are in fantastic condition,

all original and correct and so is the transmission and rest of the drivetrain.

The car's is in a fantastic all original body and chassis condition and still

equipped with its factory drivetrain and interior and all its factory options.

That’s just unique and all is documented and checked by us. 


The rest of the car is also in very solid and original condition. The frame

rails are in as new condition and the rest of the underside also still carries

its original pieces. The factory floor panels and trunk area all appear to be

in very healthy condition due to the fact that this Shelby was always garage

stored and only driven in the dry and sunny state's all of its life. This is

just a very fine example of a true and really original Shelby GT350.


The car also carries all of its original trim, emblems, grill, bumpers,

taillights and lenses, and they are all undamaged but could be in need of a

resto or freshen up if so desired. The car is also nicely equipped with all the

options you could choose from in 1968. 


The car is of course in the SAAC Shelby registry, and comes with a Marti report

to show its pedigree, and a clear US title that states correct low mileage in

combination with the Shelby data we all can assure you that its correct. Full

owner history is also known and comes with the car. All in all what we present

to you here is just a great and unique quality Shelby that’s all ready, checked

and serviced car.


If any, this special Shelby GT350 with its stunning and very rare options and

color combination must be an asset for any Shelby fan or collector. The car is

not over restored but still very original, and it’s ready to be driven and enjoyed,

besides that it’s also a very good investment for your money.


We can walk you around the car and show you all the important and original

details and of course all the cars history and documentations. On request, we

can also send you more details or make a live phone/video walk around on

it. 


With cars like this one it's also really important that they are truly original

and with this car being an honest car you just can't ever go wrong. Besides

that we will provide you with full documentation of all the original and

correct components that are on it before, during, and after its restoration and

everything will be documented. This way you will know that you are investing in

the best possible car you can get with actual proof of it all.


So if you're looking to get something really

special and one of the best handling and performing true Shelby’s for a really interesting

price, this might well be the car for you. A manual 4 speed GT350 just gives

it’s driver so much fun and pleasure that its well worth its asking price,

especially if you consider that prices for original Shelby’s in great condition

such as this car are going up and up for the last decades and for sure the end

is nowhere near in site.


We have seen prices of 1968 Shelby GT350’s vary from 110-150k and those cars

were not as rare and with complete history such as this car is. According to

well known and respected classic car appraisers such as Haggerty and Nada its

value should be around 150k and that’s well below our asking price which therefor

will leave room to grow for its future owner.


And if you take in consideration that this car has one of the best color

combinations, and is a genuine 4 speed that also comes with an additional all

new Hi-po engine, this car is priced very attractively, guaranteed!.



The car will be in our showroom soon and more pictures and a walk around video

will follow as well.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
