Auction Block: 1968 Ford Shelby GT350 Convertible

The first Shelby Mustang convertible came roaring onto the scene in 1968. Getting one half a century ago was already difficult–only 404 were produced that year–so encountering one today is even harder. Chances of discovering a diamond in the rough, rusted-out and broken down, gathering dust under barn beams and stacks of hay, are slim enough. Thus, this pristinely preserved blue Shelby Mustang GT350 convertible is a gem of the highest rarity.

Though painted in a beautiful azure called “Acapulco Blue,” the Shelby Mustang GT350 is an all-American muscle car. The ’68 was built with a 302 V8 engine, an aluminum Cobra intake manifold, a Holley 650 CFM 4-barrel carburetor, and a manual four-speed transmission that translates to 250 horsepower. This Mustang was restored in 1992-93 by Vintage Classic Car Restoration, who installed a power-operated white top with glass backlight and black interior. Beneath the custom outfit, this Mustang features many of its original factory fundaments, including a ’68 air conditioning system, power steering and front disc brakes, front and rear bumper guards, wheel lip bright moldings over OG Shelby 10-spoke aluminum wheels and period-correct BF Goodrich Radial tires. The piece de resistance? This pristine machine has Caroll Shelby’s autograph on the dash. Fitting, as this is a signature car of one of America’s classic companies.
