1968 Shelby Mustang Cobra GT350 Convertible One of only 404 Shelby GT350 Convertibles ever built! One of only 82 in Sunlit Gold over Black interior! Optioned with number’s matching 302ci V8, 4-speed transmission, power disc brakes, power steering, power top, 10-spoke alloy wheels, tilt-away steering column and more!
It would by a hot seller with 1,657 units built, but only 404 would be convertibles! We are pleased to have the opportunity to represent this 1968 Shelby Mustang GT350 convertible finished in its factory ordered color of Sunlit Gold Metallic over Deluxe Black vinyl interior with White folding convertible top. Under the under lies the original, numbers correct 302ci V8 engine mated to the factory 4-speed manual transmission and 3.
The interior remained 100% original upon arrival to the St. Louis Car Museum with the seat foams growing tired, and the seat upholstery seams pulling away in the normal areas. In July of 2016, the entire interior was restored with brand new carpet, complete seating upholstery & foams, along with a brand new glass backlite convertible top & boot cover.
The top loader transmission maintains factory inspection markings and tag stamped RUG N1 representing a correct 28-spine close ratio unit for a small block application. All in all, we have zero doubt this is a 100% numbers matching and code correct example. We invite any questions.
