Big Block Beauty: 1968 Shelby GT500KR

1968-shelby-gt500kr

I don’t think this King of the Road has ever spent time in a barn, but it’s definitely been safely stored away most of its life. It has traveled just 71k miles since new and is still in amazing shape. The seller admit it has had one repaint, but is said to be otherwise original. As impressive as this Shelby is, I’m even more impressed and a bit jealous of this seller’s shop! I wish my barn was as well decorated and stocked as this one. If you’d love to have a big block Shelby, be sure to take a closer look at this one here on eBay in Kissimmee, Florida. I hate to be a tire kicker, but if I were closer I’d see about taking a look at it just so I can have a look at the rest of this collection!

    This garage is where I want to be laid to rest.

    There’s some nice cars in that garage, besides the KR…like the ’69 Trans Am, or the ’70 Chevelle vert.

    • CATHOUSE

      The Chevelle looks like a 68 or 69 to me.

      • Rocco

        I believe you’re right. It looks like a ’68 frt fender side marker.

    What a toy box. I am inspired!

    What caught my eye other than the obvious, that 1969 1/2 A-12 440 Six Pack Dodge Coronet Sper Bee was that blower set up visible on a Lemans? or whatever it is in the back right corner. I’ll bet that ’69 Z/28 up top is super nice too as most likely all of this Seller’s vehicles are.

    Get ready to pony up some big cash for this car, these are like the 70 Cuda to mopar guys but now were talking Mustangs. I would love this stang along with a 70 Cuda then I could go to car heaven in style.

    I’m under the impression that he might be showing off his collection just a bit. Love the really w-i-d-e shots.

    • Rob S

      If I had a nice collection I sure would show it off! I sense just a little jealousy…..

    Is that a 1974 Dodge Monaco Bluesmobile I see up on that lift?

  9. angliagt

    ’68 – the best looking of the Shelby Mustangs!

    Blues mobile. Yes BDR 529 Illinois plate.
    70 Charger with blower.
    Yenko Camaro.
    Cool place. And Ford is okay to.

    Holy carp…this guy’s garage is like a museum! Love that he squirreled away some of these vinatge muscle pieces..

    The Starsky and Hutch poster has to go.

    When I was a kid in the 70s, only cool guys drove Shelbys. I remember seeing my first one on a street in Buffalo NY. To me they looked better than in pictures we had seen in Playboy. 50-years later I still can’t afford one.

  14. Tom

    The 69 Camaro looks like a 427 Yenko with the side stripe and cowl hood.
