This particular 1968 GT500 example was sold new at The Romy Hammes Ford in South Bend, Indiana. The car came from a private collection and was stored away for over a decade. This Mustang was well taken care of and still retains its original interior. It has benefitted from a thorough rotisserie restoration to get it back to all original standards. From the photos, you can see that this Shelby Fastback is highly detailed both inside and out, and has received the TLC it deserves.

This stunning blue Shelby sits on correct Goodyear Polygas tires on the optional aluminum wheels, and still retains its factory spare tire. It’s powered by the impressive 428 cubic-inch Police-Interceptor V8 engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission. This big-block engine pairing delivers a whopping 360 horsepower. Turn the key on this bad boy and you’ll see just how legendary it truly is. The car runs very strong and smoothly shifts throughout all the gears.

There’s no doubt about it that Ford and Carroll Shelby had a huge winner on their hands with the track-oriented GT350. However, in 1967, they went on to introduce a big-block variant of the potent Mustang collab—the Shelby GT500. Now is your chance to own a powerful piece of muscle car history with the value of the car only to go up.

This vehicle comes with the factory owner’s manual, warranty book, build sheet, original car hang tags, Shelby handbook, and more. Contact Carolina Muscle Cars for more information and financing/trade options. Finding a well-documented Shelby in this color with a four-speed is not an easy feat, so do not miss out on this opportunity.
