Vehicle Description
1968 Shelby GT 350 Convertible
For Sale By Owner
1968 Shelby GT 350 Convertible. This model features a 302 V8 HP engine with 4-speed transmission. 1 of 404 GT350 convertibles, refinished in 1981. Original interior, original convertible top, mostly original sheet metal. Ready to show and enjoy!

The 1967 model year Mustang was the first model to feature a major redesign with the installation of a big-block V8 engine. The overall size, interior and cargo space were increased. Exterior trim changes included concave taillights, side scoop (1967) and chrome (1968) side ornamentation, square rear-view mirrors, and usual yearly wheel and gas cap changes. The high-performance 289 option was placed behind the newer 320 hp (239 kW) 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE engine from the Ford Thunderbird, which was equipped with a four-barrel carburetor. A 390 GT engine, and a 4-speed manual transmission recorded quarter mile times of approximately 13 seconds and trap speeds of over 105 mph (169 km/h). A very low number of 1967 Mustangs were ordered and came with the 428 CJ motor. During the mid-1968 model year, a drag racer for the street could be ordered with the optional 428 cu in (7 L) Cobra Jet engine which was officially rated at 335 hp (250 kW) all of these Mustangs were issued R codes on their VIN#'s.

The 1967 and 1968 models discontinued the "Pony Interior" in favor of a new deluxe interior package, which included special color options, brushed stainless steel (1967) or woodgrain (1968) trim, seat buttons, a tilt steering wheel, and special interior paneling. The 1968 models that were produced during 1968 were also the first year to incorporate 3 point lap belts as opposed to the standard lapbelts The air-conditioning option was fully integrated into the dash, the speakers and stereo were upgraded, and unique center and overhead consoles were options. The fastback model offered the option of a rear fold-down seat, and the convertible was available with folding glass windows.[citation needed] Gone too was the Rally-Pac, since the new instrument cluster had provisions for an optional
tachometer and clock. Its size and shape also precluded the installation of the accessory atop the steering column.

This '68 Shelby GT350 is 1 of 404 convertibles manufactured out of 1657 total units. The overall condition inside and out is exceptional. It would make a sweet addition to any collection and it drives like a dream.

Offered for $179,000.00. Pair offered for $325,000.00.

For 1967, the GT 350 carried over the K-Code high performance 289 with a 'COBRA' aluminum hi-rise. The GT 500 was added to the lineup, equipped with the 428 Police Interceptor. These later cars carried over few of the performance modifications of the 1965-66 GT350s, although they did feature more cosmetic changes.

In September 1967, production was moved to the A.O. Smith Company of Ionia, Michigan, under Ford control.[3] Shelby American had substantially less involvement after this time. In February 1968, the GT500KR "King of the Road" debuted; under the hood was a 428 cubic-inch Cobra Jet V8 which was rated at 335 horsepower (250 kW).
