Description 1968 Shelby GT 500 KR Tribute 428 Cobra Jet

Re-Listing this car with some additional new photos, Lower Reserve price and new Lower Buy it Now,  (NOTE: Bidding will continue where it left off from last bid of $48,100) guys, this will make your Christmas Thunderous ! This is my personal car, no expense was spared, I have owned since 2007. Have priced 2 transport company's that will go door to door, no issues, insured and enclosed, I have used them with great results.

This car started life as an immaculate 1968 fastback C code and was transformed into the Highest level of 68 mustang available in 68, the Shelby GT 500 KR (King of the road) with the legendary 428 Cobra jet, Aluminum Heads, Intake and water pump, together with the fibreglass, this car is light and fast.

Halfway through 1968, Shelby started building the KR with the 428 Cobra Jet, it was much faster and soon became the legend it is today.
Starting with the body: New Mexico car with zero rust issues, including quarters, floorboards, (Check out underside) fenders, everything is original and zero rust. Carrying all its original metal panels, this was a perfect candidate for a KR build. When painted the front and rear end fibreglass was smoothed in, including the upper scoops to add to the sleek style. Doors shut like day one, with little effort 
(SEE YOUTUBE VIDEO OF CAR VISIT :Rick Derksen channel on YOUTUBE, also you can see my 67 427 Side Oiler GT 500)

Drivetrain: 428 Cobra Jet (11.75:1 comp.) with Edelbrock Aluminum Heads, Edelbrock Performer Intake, Holley 770 Avenger, Edelbrock High Flow Aluminum water pump, cools this 428 nicely, Pertronics in original dist., FPA ceramic coated tri-wy Headers breath fire to the Flowmasters then out to the Quad tips. (Here the sound of this car on Youtube)
New big Block Rad with flange, tons of airflow thru one of the most aggressive front ends on any Shelby ever. New C6 to a balanced driveshaft and off to the new 350 Posi, powder coated black onto new disc rear brakes to the 10 spoke Aluminum Shelby wheels on to the nearly new Michelins Car has 3028 miles since adding the guages (Not sure of actual mileage) New Tune, maintenance, & Professional inspection work (Sept 19th) done by Paul Denbrock of Cruz Automotive, (See receipt Photo) includes, carb, timing, Amsoil High Zinc 10w40. Paul (Journeyman Mechanic) owns Shelby's & Boss's  and a real KR, he is the only mechanic I allow to touch this car. Call Paul if you need to talk about car, he knows the car well, a fresh inspection, done by Paul himself !

Interior: This combination really makes this car pop, matching the exterior is blue and white interior, this is simply awesome to experience in person. Shelby Cobra wood Steering Wheel with matching Shelby Cobra logo from Gas Cap, makes this an unbeatable combination. Factory 140mph and 8000 tach work perfect, sequential tail Lights work perfect, AM radio works perfect. Shelby wood shifter, Cobra Jet Dash emblem, Original GT 500 Console with Shelby stamping is perfect. Real Shelby rubber coated Roll bar and Shelby sill plates finish this tribute off inside. 
Randall quick ratio Rack & Pinion Power Steering, lowered suspension make this KR handle much more like a new car and add true enthusiast feel to this incredible package.

I will answer some popular questions from inquiries by phone that may help some of the bidders: Q: are the floor pans and quarters the originals? A: yes original floorpans and quarters, the floorpans are the best I have seen, no dents or abuse from improper jacking (pans & rails, see photos) with zero rust or rust repair. The Quarters are original, straight and true. Incredible

Guys, you don't want welded in floorpans, rails, or quarters, most are done improper, this car is exceptional and Original, there only original Once. 

Q: What is the Reserve price? A: I will not reveal the reserve yet I will give you and Idea, its under $57k 

Q: How does it drive with the new Rack and pinion steering?  A: The New Randall Rack and Pinion steering system, works amazing, its quick ratio makes this car feel more like a newer sports car and with the lowered suspension, it all comes together to a much improved car, a complete package in one car.
Q: Are you open to offers? A: Yes, I would consider taking offers as well, I have researched pricing this car and the Buy it Now price of $57k is much below cars that are somewhat similar, yet I have not found one example of a Tribute GT 500 KR that has completely original floors, rails and quarters, this is what will make this specific car continue to rise in price every year.
Q: Can you send me the link to the Youtube's of this car
A: I will text you the link to the youtube videos of this car, I may add a new video as well

Guys, watch the youtube of this car type in Rick Derksen,  you will find it there, see the paint shine ! and here the insane exhaust sound at 600 rpm. idle I hope this helps, feel free to call or text me: C 306-280-7950 - Rick
This car would be double the price at a large muscle car store, take advantage of the buy it now ! (Do not miss this one, its absolutely STUNNING! )

I can answer more of your questions, no problem, Thanks !
