I thought you'd like a look at this 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR, King of the Road.
It's powered by a 428 Cobra Jet, backed by a four-speed manual

1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and
audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is
one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this
car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play
and enjoy... and don't bust my chops in regards to my glasses - it was
really sunny that day - M. Musto

1967 Mustang Junior body, bumpers and other restoration parts
If you have been searching high and low for a 1967 Mustang junior for sale and have come
up empty handed because they are so rare, here is your chance to own one.
the bodies have all of the details of the originals and are much larger
than a pedal car so an adult can fit in them. Since the powercar Company of
Mystic Ct went out of business in 1967 they never made any 1968 Mustang juniors. the side vents on
the mold can be filled with clay before the fiberglass is laid up to make a
1968 body. If you do not know about the Mustang JR cars you should watch my
other videos or go to my website http://www.jrcentral.com if you have an
original and want restoration parts a list of available parts are here
http://www.jrcentral.com/resources.html or if you have the talents you can
recreate one from available parts. They never made a Shelby version but if
you want to you can. Or an Elanor? These are not power wheels they are much
bigger and more detailed.

This is undeniably rare, unique, and desireable Shelby. Only SIX 4pd 1968
Shelby GT500 KR's with A/C were bon red with black interior and a white
top. The current owner began a 20 year quest to collect NOS and original
parts for a concours restoration, which was completted in 2006.
In the two years since her completion, she's won Concours GOLD four times.
She was last judged SAAC Concours GOLD 880/900 possible points. Ever the
perfectionist, the owner corrected most all those points and she a 897/900
now. Truly a #1 condition car, she has logged a scant 13 miles since her

People always wonder why the survival rate of even exceptional collector
cars is so low. If these cars are so special, why didn't someone take
better care of them? This 1968 Shelby GT500KR is unquestionably a
spectacular car, but it was almost lost forever and presents an interesting
case study in seeing the forest for the trees. Literally hours away from
the crusher, a sharp-eyed enthusiast spotted the body at the scrap yard and
immediately made a move to purchase it. Noting the original Shelby fender
tag was still intact and therefore knowing that it was a top-of-the-line
GT500KR convertible, he arranged to purchase it for $500 just hours before
it was slated to go into the crusher. He paid the wrecking service to drag
the car to his home, where he began the restoration.
In 1978, you could still order Shelby parts directly from Ford, so all new
fiberglass OEM pieces were purchased to replace those that were destroyed
by the fire. But the restoration never happened and the car and all the
parts were sold. Eventually the car landed at Custom Classic Autos, where
it was given a frame-off restoration to concours standards.
The paint and bodywork are simply stunning in person. Any of the flaws
carried by the original fiberglass have been thoroughly exorcised and today
it is in better than new condition. Panel alignment is exceptional, gaps
are even all around, and the car fits together better than any Mustang ever built by the factory.
The paint is 2-stage base/clear urethane that exactly duplicates the
special order Bright Yellow finish, and correct black GT500KR stripes and
call-outs have been installed on the rocker panels.
The incredible detailing extends under the hood, where a freshly rebuilt,
date-code correct 428 Cobra Jet has been installed. Painted the correct
shade of Ford corporate blue, it features correct COBRA cast aluminum valve
covers, functional ram-air air cleaner, and even a complete thermactor
system. Dominating the engine bay is the massive compressor for the A/C
system, which is fully functional and blows ice cold. Correct hoses,
clamps, wiring, and clips were used throughout the engine compartment,
resulting in a highly accurate, concours-ready piece.
The chassis looks exactly factory correct as well. Starting with red oxide
primer on the floors, just like every Mustang built from Day One, the
Bright Yellow paint has been blown in, just like on the assembly line. The
C6 automatic has been rebuilt and, like the engine, is correct for a Shelby
GT500KR. Out back, there's a bulletproof Ford 9-inch rear with 3.00 gears.
Gorgeous 10-spoke Shelby alloy wheels carry Goodyear bias-ply tires.
According to the experts at Custom Classics, the interior is original Ford,
and not a reproduction kit. We already know it can't be original to this
particular car, but must have come from a donor vehicle instead. The Shelby
Cobra logo on the center armrest is crisp and clear and not
overstuffed-looking like the reproductions, and the woodgrain on the dash
and center console is excellent. Carpets are reproductions, and are
protected by a set of rubber floor mats.
As far as investments go, it's awfully hard to beat a Shelby GT500KR
convertible with a special-order color and a ton of options. To add your
chapter to this car's fascinating history, all you need to do is call.
