WHY 1968 SHELBY MUSTANG GT-500KR WILL ALWAYS BE KING?
Almost 50 years ago, at the 1967 New York Auto Show, Ford introduced the most powerful Mustang ever. The 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500 was already enjoying the status of being one of the most popular cars at that time. Imbued with appealing affordability, undeniably attractive body styles (convertible and fastback versions) and a selection of inline-six and V-8 engines, Ford’s latest offering was an instant success. Though the arrival of this newest Shelby Mustang won the hearts of many, Ford and Carroll Shelby knew that they can raise the bar even higher. They knew the potential that their newest pony has, given the right opportunity to further enhance its innards. This opportunity arrived in April of 1968 when a latest version of the 428 Police Interceptor engine, with improved breathing heads and larger exhaust manifolds, were planted under the GT500 fiber glass hood placing the Mustang once more at the head of the pack.
