The 1968 Shelby “King of the Road” GT500 was “born” when Ford introduced what was one of the company’s best performance engines of the decade, the 428 Cobra Jet. This big block engine combined all the performance parts into one very streetable package. The GT500KR became the new home for the potent big block for a one year special edition car.


The 1968 Shelby Continuation GT500KR – available in both fastback and convertible body styles – packs even more big-block punch. It is powered by a 427ci engine from Carroll Shelby Engine Co. and can with a choice of either aluminum or cast iron block. The Shelby is available with either a manual or automatic transmission.


Drivetrains are installed in 1967-1968 Mustang donor cars, with factory VINs intact. Shelby spec suspensions, interiors and brakes are included. The cars carry special 50th anniversary badges. Any standard Shelby colors from 1968 can be chosen as the cars are built to order.


Limited to 10 fastback and 10 convertibles – these Continuations are outfitted like their 1968 counterparts and listed in the Shelby Registry. For the first time since 1968, a genuine classic “King of the Road” is available through Legendary GT.


“For those who can remember when the KR was introduced, or younger enthusiasts hoping to create their own memories, this new King of the Road represents a rare second chance to own a very special muscle car built just for them.”
