Being offered for sale is a beautifully restored icon of American Muscle, a 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500 convertible. This stunning Highland Green, with black interior and white soft top Shelby Cobra GT500 convertible received a no expense spared professional restoration of the highest level. Since the restoration was completed in 2009, the car, which is housed in a climate controlled garage, has been driven a mere 400 miles. This Shelby Cobra GT500 has been scrutinized by the experts and has received the Shelby American Automobile Club Gold Award in 2010, the Antique Automobile Club of America Senior Gold Award in 2010, and the Mustang Club of America Award in 2011. The car is listed in the Shelby American Registry, documented with Deluxe Marti Report, and a truly exceptional vehicle.

This Shelby Cobra GT500 convertible is fairly rare being one of 402 GT500 convertibles ordered in 1968 (the first year available) out of a total production of 1,542 GT500s, one of 236 painted Highland Green and only one of 183 with the Highland Green/ Black Décor Bucket Seats. The car was originally delivered to JD Ball Ford Inc in Miami, Florida with the 428-4V Police Interceptor engine, C-6 automatic transmission , 3.00:1 gear ratio, White Power Convertible Top w/Glass Backlite, Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, Tilt Steering Wheel, Air Conditioning, AM Radio, Interior Décor Group, Tinted Glass and Tachometer and Trip Odometer. This was clearly “as good as it gets” at the time and one of the best all around performance machines being offered in 1968.

This is a 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500 for the discriminating collector who requires the best and will settle for no less. With this GT500 there are no excuses only accolades.
