1968 Shelby GT500KR Convertible, Black over Black, Concours Triple Crown Winner

1968 Shelby GT500KR #02524 is the American Pharoah of the automotive world. This thoroughbred is finished in stunning Raven Black over Black, one of only 6% of total KR Convertible production or 33 cars. Add to that the quality of her restoration, not just concours gold winning, but one of only a handful that have earned the Shelby Concours Triple Crown: • 2012 Mustang Club of America, Providence, Rhode Island National Show, Concours Trailered Gold Award• 2012 Shelby American Automobile Club, Watkins Glen, New York, Concours Gold-Div 2• 2012 Team Shelby, Tulsa, Oklahoma, Heritage Gold Award - Concours Heritage Class The quality of her condition compliments her pedigree. " # 2524 is one of the finest examples of a restored Shelby anywhere. You will be hard pressed to find a more historically accurate car anywhere. If you ever wanted to experience what a new 1968 Shelby was like, this is a rare opportunity to own the very best. That's not my opinion, but rather the opinion of the most knowledgeable Shelby people in the world." -Peter Disher, aka the Coralsnake and SAAC Concours Judge In 2012, 2524 underwent a full rotisserie restoration by Tim Lea, one of the most well regarded restorers within the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) community. The 428 Cobra Jet big-block V-8 engine, dated 8B5 (or February 5, 1968) a few months before the build date of the car, and VIN stamped C-6 automatic transmission were completely rebuilt to original factory specifications. She has been driven approximately 3,100 miles since 2012, mostly to local shows and events in the Los Angeles area. In addition, #2524 was featured in a recent Ford family wedding. Retired from competition, occasional driving does results in slight patina, primarily within the engine bay and undercarriage. Minor wear to plated and bare metal components is to be expected and is regularly detailed to maintain the factory finish. She is a 1968 Shelby GT500KR, a concours Triple Crown winning "King of the Road." Rare - one of 518 GT500KR's produced and only one of a dozen to win the Concours Triple Crown. Desirable - Raven Black over Black Décor interior, offset by a white power convertible top and white rocker panel stripes. She certainly stirs the soul. Excellence - either in restoration detail or quality of preservation. Provenance - a vehicle's history and pedigree within the enthusiast community. A car possessing any three of these traits would be a solid addition to a private collection, having all four makes this Shelby a must have for any serious collector.
