Uncasville CT United States
Selling At Auction - Northeast - 2018 This special-order Shelby GT500KR is one of only 20 Shelby convertibles painted WT6066 yellow, and one of only 7 yellow Shelby convertibles equipped with air conditioning. It was retired from daily driver duty in 1978 and, during the next 20 years, the car and its growing collection of NOS replacement parts passed through the hands of several collectors. In the late 1990s this car, 03900 received the restoration it deserved, and in the early 2000s was refreshed by a professional shop. All of the fiberglass was sourced from Ford and all trim and ornamentation is original or NOS. A correct interior includes a Cobra-branded shifter, a correct console and a rim-blow tilt steering wheel. Under the skin, a roster of NOS and painstakingly date-coded components complement a date-correct 428ci Cobra Jet engine and a date-correct C6 automatic transmission. A rebuilt factory chassis hangs a correct 9Ó axle, complete with correct 3.00 gears, between factory power steering, power front disc and rear drum brakes, and 10-spoke Shelby alloy wheels wrapped in Goodyear bias-ply tires. The sale of this exclusive GT500KR includes restoration photos, a Marti Auto Works Elite Report and a letter of authentication from Jim Wicks, SAAC Regional Director and Event Chairman.
