Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 KR

Desirable GT500 KR Mustang finished in Acapulco Blue over Black.



The Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the standard Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby American between the years 1965 - 1968. The GT500 variant was born in 1967 when Ford increased the original Mustang's engine bay in order to accommodate their much larger 360bhp 7.0L V8 engine. Available in both 2-door fastback and 2-door convertible, just over 2,000 GT500s were produced in 1967.

Its successor came one year later in 1968 and was assertively named the "King of the Road" or GT500 KR for short. The KR certainly lived up to this name, featuring incredible horsepower, a luxurious interior, and the most aggressive Mustang design yet. The KR proved to be exceptionally popular with over 1,000 examples being sold throughout 1968.

The example we are pleased to offer was produced in June 1968 and is the more desirable GT500 KR variant. It is equipped with the select-shift automatic transmission and is finished in the stunning colour combination of Acapulco Blue over a Black interior. It also features power steering, power disk brakes, and a tilting steering wheel. It sits today in brilliant condition and is showing just under 80,000 miles. The GT500 KR quickly became a favourite among the car-savvy Hollywood actors and remains a popular favourite to this date. For the true American Muscle experience, the Shelby GT500 KR is unrivalled.
