As a world-leading authority on 1960s-era Shelby American automobiles, Stephan Becker Automotive Group has offered some of the most collectible Shelby cars over the years but this 1968 Shelby GT500 convertible might be close to topping the list.
Only 402 convertibles were made in 1968 and this car sits exactly how it did when it rolled off the lot. Thanks to spending most of its life in Arizona, It has never been restored.
It is believed to have only 86,000 actual miles put there by its 3 known owners. Most of the mileage was more than likely racked up by the second owner who owned the car for 34 years.
Under the hood of this Highland Green 1968 Shelby GT500 convertible is the original 428-cid Police Interceptor engine mated to a C6 automatic transmission that leads into a 9-inch rear end with a 3.50:1 axle ratio and limited slip differential.
The car recently won 2nd place at an annual Shelby American Automobile Club event. Stephen Becker Automotive Group has the car listed for sale for $199,000. A complete set of service records and a ton of original paperwork is included in the sale.
This is once in a lifetime opportunity to add an original condition unrestored 1968 Shelby GT500 to your garage. Judging from the pictures, there is no evidence of rust and according to service records, the engine has recently been rebuilt approximately 2,000 mile ago.
