Chassis #: 8T03R210309
Sold for $220,000 at 2007 Monterey Sports and Classic Car Auction.
Sold for $126,500 at 2010 RM Auctions - Sports & Classics of Monterey.
This 1968 Shelby GT 500KR Convertible with chassis number 8T03R210309 was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $225,000 - $275,000. It has a Cobra-Jet 428 cubic-inch V8 engine capable of producing 335 horsepower. It has an automatic gearbox which adds to its rarity. Of the 4451 Shelby's built in 1968, only 1,571 were GT 500 KRs. 518 were convertibles and 251 of those were given automatic gearboxes. Just 40 of those were painted in Lime Gold and only 32 with black decor bucket seats. Only 12 of those were fitted with black convertible tops.

This GT 500KR Convertible has been treated to a complete restoration and has been autographed by Carroll Shelby. At auction the estimated value proved accurate, as the high bid nearly reached those estimates, settling at $220,000 including buyer's premium.
