1968 SHELBY GT350 CONVERTIBLE

#2917 LISTED IN THE SHELBY REGISTRY 302/250 HP, AUTOMATIC WITH FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING

This 1968 Shelby GT350 convertible is serial number 2917, one of only 404 such cars built in that first year of Shelby convertible production. Completely restored from the ground up and finished in gorgeous Candyapple Red with White sill stripes, it also incorporates a White poweroperated top in flawless condition. Like all Shelby convertibles of this vintage, the car’s Black Deluxe interior features bucket seats, a special console with an embossed “Cobra” cover, StewartWarner oil pressure and amp gauges

and woodgrain trim, and a padded rollbar with inertia-reel harnesses. It is also equipped with optional tiltaway steering column and factory air conditioning. Dressed in finned Cobra aluminum air cleaner and valve covers, the car is powered by the 302/250 HP 4-barrel small block V-8 and Select-OMatic 3-speed automatic transmission, both matching numbers and original to the car, as are such rare and important items as the Lucas fog lamps, SW gauges, the correct carb and intake, the buck tag and Shelby’s very

desirable aluminum 10-spoke wheels. They don’t come much nicer than this gem from the outstanding Rick Davis Collection.
