Stunning, Highly Original 1968 Shelby GT 500 Fastback
Returning to Specialty Sales Classics in our Fairfield showroom after being in a private collection for 23 years is this gorgeous 1968 Shelby GT 500 2 Door Fastback with Highland Green exterior paint and a black vinyl interior with correct Cobra badging. You’ll also find a factory correct 428 Cobra Jet V-8 engine under the hood with 335 HP and 420 ft/lb. of torque, paired to a period correct 3-speed automatic transmission. This highly original classic has recently been lovingly brought back to driving condition and it is one of the nicer original examples we’ve ever come across. We said that in 1999 when we sold it to the current owner and we still feel that way today.
Equipped with 428 Cobra Jet V-8 & 3-Speed Auto
The current owner of this 1968 Shelby GT 500 Fastback purchased it from our Pleasanton showroom back in 1999 and drove it directly to his home in Sacramento, California. It has remained garaged there since that time and we received it back in late 2021 to prepare it for a new home. Over the last several months, we’ve rebuilt the transmission, replaced the braking system all the way around and also added a new water pump, valve cover gaskets, alternator, and power steering pump. The gas tank was also reconditioned and this vehicle received new fluids and an extensive tune up (new spark plugs, battery, tires, etc.) to ensure it’s ready for the next owner.
Additionally, this 1968 Shelby GT 500 Fastback is a genuine period correct example and only required refreshing since it had remained parked for 22+ years. We do not have a lot of history on this desirable classic prior to receiving it in 1999, but it does have everything you’d look for in an investment-grade classic. The exterior is in great shape with gorgeous body lines, previously resprayed exterior paint and exceptional trim all the way around. You’ll also find a very original, highly correct black Cobra interior with correct wood grain paneling and badging throughout.
On the open road, this 1968 Shelby GT 500 Fastback is an absolute pleasure to drive, allowing you to experience the epitome of Ford/Shelby Muscle from that era. Very few iconic classic muscle cars live up to the hype like this particular example does, and it is a vehicle that could be driven and enjoyed at local shows and events. .
Meticulously Restored & Ready for the Open Road
Overall, this 1968 Shelby GT 500 Fastback is every collectors’ ultimate muscle car and it is likely priced conservatively for such an original example. It needs next to nothing to be enjoyed right away at the highest possible levels and there is simply no way that it remains available for long.
