Charlotte, NC Yellow · 428 Cobra Jet V8 · 9,719 miles
In 1978, even a Shelby GT500KR convertible (with AC!) was little more than a used car. Certain astute collectors at the time recognized that these were special cars, but they had not yet gathered the immense following they enjoy today. Even Carroll Shelby himself had turned his back on the Mustangs bearing his name years earlier, dismissing them as little more than interesting footnotes to the Mustang story. So when Shelby 03900 was stolen, stripped of its engine and transmission, then set on fire, there was no public outcry. And the original owner probably happily cashed the check the insurance company gave him as compensation. The stripped, burned-out carcass was hauled away to a local scrap yard called Twin Service in Anderson, Indiana, where it was scheduled to be crushed just like any other stripped, burned-out theft recovery. However, a sharp-eyed enthusiast spotted the body at Twin Service and immediately made his move. Noting the original Shelby fender tag was still intact and therefore knowing the car was a top-of-the-line GT500KR convertible, he arranged to purchase it for $500 just hours before it was slated to hit the crusher. He paid the wrecking service to drag the car to his home where he began an extensive restoration. Incredible detailing extends under the hood, where a rebuilt, date-correct 428 Cobra Jet looks right at home. Behind that mill, a rebuilt C6 automatic spins a bulletproof Ford 9-inch thats fitted with 3.00 gears. Original factory convertible reinforcements are in place. An exact reproduction exhaust system has been installed, complete with correct tips. A new gas tank hangs amid fully rebuilt brakes and suspension. And gorgeous 10-spoke Shelby alloys carry old school Goodyear tires. In summary, this is a thoroughbred Shelby with a concours-quality restoration. The parts are correct in every way possible given the cars unique history. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com to add your chapter to this legends history!
