1968 Shelby GT500 in Lebanon, Missouri

The relationship between Ford Motor Company and Carroll Shelby is, quite literally, the stuff that books are written and movies are made about.  While that relationship started on the race tracks, it also translated to the streets with the first generation of Mustangs.
This 1968 Shelby GT500 convertible is an exceptional example of that.  One of 402 Shelby GT500 convertibles built in the 1968 model year, the trim tag on this vehicle shows it to have been restored to the correct Sunlit Gold Metallic paint with the Medium Saddle crinkle vinyl and Saddle Kiwi vinyl interior.  Power comes from a Shelby-prepared 428 cubic inch powerplant, with a C6 three-speed automatic transmission delivering power to the nine-inch Ford rear differential housing a 3.50:1 gearset.  The correct Shelby wheels can be found at all four corners and for the full-size spare secured in the trunk.
An interesting side note is that the trim tag indicates the car was built on February 29, 1968 making it a rare Leap Day car!  In addition, the glove box door has been autographed by Carroll Shelby, adding additional provenance to this impressive car.  This GT500 has been a part of the present owner’s classic vehicle portfolio since February 2008 and has been driven occasionally during his ownership.  It has been stored in a humidity-controlled environment since his acquisition.

NOTICE
Because of the number of vehicles we represent we cannot drive every vehicle for long distances.  These vehicles have been part of static displays for long periods of time, in some cases for decades, and are subject to the flaws and imperfections consistent with that.  While we do our best to disclose all issues we known about a vehicle in our advertising, these are old cars and something that has always worked in the past might not function properly today.  Please check the requirements of your state regarding the licensing and registration of classic vehicles and make sure the vehicle you are looking at meets those if applicable.  Unless otherwise noted, all vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom possess a clean (non-branded) title which will be provided the new buyer when purchase funds clear our financial institution.  Virtually all our vehicles are sold as mileage exempt due to their age.  We do not warranty any vehicle, nor any part of the vehicle including air conditioning systems, brake systems, electrical systems and gauges, fuel systems, accessories or powertrain components.
These are old vehicles and it is very common for them to require certain maintenance and upkeep for them to be operational.  In many cases issues with leaks may develop when being driven after a long period of not being used.  This is common, as classic cars at some point will leak fluids.  For this reason, we do not encourage buyers to attempt driving their purchase home as we cannot guarantee functional reliability of these vehicles.  We strongly encourage prospective buyers to be sure they are comfortable with these issues before purchasing a classic car.
Descriptions of vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom are intended to be informational in nature and do not in any way constitute any sort of warranty, expressed or implied.   Again, these vehicles are presented “as-is, where-is” without guarantee or warranty.  Vehicles manufactured prior to 1981 will likely not be included in the databases of companies such as CarFax and AutoCheck that provide vehicle history information to consumers.   If you have specific questions regarding a vehicle we urge you to contact us at .
