Classic Car Overview
1968 Shelby GT500 CJ 428-4V Police Interceptor (4-speed Manual)
One of the last Shelbys to be finished at Shelby America… This Shelby GT500 isn’t just a cool collector’s piece, it is also a great driving and sounding muscle car.
This GT500 has lived in Texas since the day it was sold, and like most vehicles in Texas, it was ordered with A/C (the A/C works great and blows cold).
The car is mostly original and is numbers matching. There were some changes made to it over the years to improve the drivability of the car, including the addition of an MSD Ignition, which gives you increased fuel economy, faster starts, more power, and smoother running performance with a more even idle. Magnaflow exhaust was also added. (Both of these additions really get you excited as soon as you turn the key.) The radiator was replaced with an aluminum radiator – another great addition to make the car more drivable (original radiator comes with the purchase of the car).
One other alteration is the blue racing stripes. The car was originally solid Wimbledon White, but the previous owner decided to add the stripes for more eye appeal.
The interior is largely original, except for the steering wheel and the radio (original steering wheel and radio also come with the purchase of the car).
Records that come with the car include – the Marti Report, ownership history (including sale and purchase prices/dates), repair/upgrade receipts, documentation of the motor rebuild (including Dyno sheet and pictures) and a Certificate of Authenticity confirming Carroll Shelby’s autograph above the glove box is genuine.
** This GT500 is in the Shelby Registry. **
