General discription


COMING SOON/EXPECTED : 

 

This gorgeous looking, very correct Ford Mustang Fastback, in 68' GT500KR Shelby outfit and loaded with special performance parts and a brand new 392 cui Factory ford Performance Engine ( with only around 500 test miles driven) & new Tremec manual 5-speed transmission and loads of special performance parts. 


Real Shelby GT500KR fastback's cars are very rare expensive cars indeed and the cost a small fortune nowadays, but not this car. This one looks almost exactly the same but can be driven and enjoyed for a fraction of the cost of a true Shelby and the best of all is that it combines the great looks of a genuine Shelby KR500 with a much better and more modern and more reliable engine, transmission, suspension and steering system. It's just the best of both worlds !. BUT WAIT there is more....


This car was upgraded and build to be driven and enjoyed and handles, brakes way better than the original car ever did. The engine of an original Shelby is good for a mere 335hp, but this car has 450hp ! and is therefore MUCH faster and more fun to be driven on the streets today. And were an original KR500 was equipped with a 428 cui engine this 392 cui inch stroker is close to that cui but delivers WAY more power and is also much more reliable. And besides horsepower, this engine also has more ft.lbs torque !. 


The car you see here was built from scratch and with loads of new parts from a correct and original and solid rust free 67'  real V8 - C code Mustang Fastback ( so it's not a hacked up 6 cylinder coupe ! ) and has the fantastic looking and correct Shelby style race car colors and Shelby racing stripes . Its also equipped with all the correct details, emblems and original style interior and even the correct anti-roll bar and original fog lights are installed !. It's not oft that you see such a correct and complete looking tribute. 


This car looks just exactly like the original KR500 car's and only a real Shelby fanatic will be able to see or tell the difference. It's the perfect combination of a great looking, rare and priceless 68' Shelby GT500KR that's fast and drives better than the original, combined with a price that makes you smile and able to really drive and enjoy it and not just leave it in your garage because you're too afraid to drive it. 


Its completely rust free and damage free and the underside is clean and detailed. It has all the correct 1968 Shelby body parts like Hood, Scoops, front nose piece, taillights and valance panels and the correct emblems and interior with the original style roll bar!. Its also painted in the correct factory Wimbledon white and blue racing stripes 68' Shelby colors and stripes that look amazing on the car. WOW, what a looker!.


Almost every component on the car was restored or is new, from the wiring, the body parts, to the complete drivetrain and steering and brake components. It's really fast and sounds AWESOME !, as it's equipped with a stainless steel dual exhaust system with Magnaflow mufflers and headers. The fuel system consists of a brand new aluminum gas tank with all new steel braided hoses and a new fuel pump and regulator. 


The driveline of this car is also completely rebuilt and equipped with a rebuild Ford 9 inch rear axle, a new chrome moly driveshaft and new couplers, a factory new 5 speed Tremec overdrive style manual transmission with high-performance clutch and pressure plates and all new suspension, shocks, brakes and steering systems. 


The car is also equipped with modern style rack & pinion steering system, upgraded suspension system with front tubular A-arms and adjustable shocks all around and subframe bar's, 4 wheel slotted and vented Bear disc brakes to make it handle much, much better than the original car's ever did.  


Again.. its a real performance C code V8 fastback and with prices of even worn out unrestored 6 cylinder fastbacks starting at around 30/35k these day's and real Shelby's going for well over 200k, this car is just priced right! . So don't wait too long as we estimate it will be sold soon.


The car is currently being completely checked and serviced and upgraded in our garage and it will also receive a brand new high-quality Pttm Paintjob inside and out to make this amazing car look even sharper. So if you're interested in the car just give us a call or send us an email as work is still in progress. 


If you want a quality car, that's ready to be enjoyed for many more years to come and looks just like the original KR500, but drives way better and even outperforms the original car, than this is it !. We estimate it has more than 80k invested in the build and parts alone and we also spend another 20k in paint and detailing the car, so for the asking price you just can't ever find or build one like it even if you could and wanted to, and its all READY to be enjoyed!.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
