Fully documented by Marti Auto Works, this registry-listed GT350 was one of the first Shelbys assembled for 1968. Presently, the car rolls as a fully-sorted head turner that packs a superb 302/4-speed drivetrain in a correct Saddle interior and correct Acapulco Blue paint. And if you’re in the market for a blue chip classic that’s the perfect fit for sunny show fields and world class collections, it’s the pedigreed nobility you’ve been patiently waiting for!
One of only 48 Acapulco Blue and Saddle fastbacks produced in 1968, this striking GT350 was shipped to Kirkwood, Missouri as one of two identical cars sold through Yates-Stevens Ford. After four decades of excellent maintenance and spirited driving, the car benefitted from a highly detailed, frame-off rebuild that reworked all its panels into smooth and solid surfaces. And once those surfaces were fully prepped, correct Acapulco Blue base was buried in a thick clear and dressed in sporty “G.T.350” side stripes.
Completely rebuilt during the extensive restoration, the car’s 302 cubic inch Windsor V8 is correct to the 1968 model year. Behind that legendary mill, a correct Toploader 4-speed spins a rugged Ford 9-inch that’s fitted with beefy, 3.89 gears. Red Oxide floors ride a fully rebuilt suspension that mixes factory power steering with power front disc and rear drum brakes. And at the edges of the car, retrofitted 10-spoke alloys spin correct E70-15 Goodyear Speedway 350s.
Inside this Ford’s impressive cockpit, you’ll find a mostly-original Deluxe Saddle interior that contrasts well to the car’s tasteful paint. Plush vinyl seats present virtually no evidence of wear and tear. A handsome dash hangs a correct 140 MPH speedometer next to a correct 8,000 RPM tachometer. Beneath that dash, a Cobra-branded console frames a requisite Hurst shifter. And the driver spins an ornate Shelby steering wheel around a desirable Tilt-Away column.
Sporting an exclusive V8, classic good looks and a full roster of desirable options, there’s no question this Shelby is both collectable AND enjoyable.

The Shelby Mustang is a high-performance variant of the Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 to 1968, and from 1969 to 1970 by Ford. The 1965-1966 cars were the smallest and lightest of the GT 350 models. These cars are often called “Cobras”, which was the Ford-powered AC-based two-seat sports car also produced by Shelby American during the same period. The 1967 redesign made for a heavier Mustang, along with a longer, fiberglass hood, and new front and rear fascias. The design of the original 1965 version was evident, but these styling upgrades gave the car a more aggressive appearance and achieved Carroll Shelby’s goal of differentiating his car from the Mustang on which it was based. The separate high-beam headlamps in the grille added more character, while a thin, chrome front bumper sat below a mesh grille with the classic “Shelby GT350” logo in place.

The small hood scoop was there to deliver fresh air to the engine. Shelby also included new, horizontal sequential taillights (sourced from a ’67 Cougar in 1967 and a ’65 Thunderbird in 1968) and an integrated Kamm-type rear spoiler. Functional rear brake-cooling scoops adorned the rear quarter panels. Ten-spoke, fifteen-inch, cast-aluminum rims were the wheel choice with Goodyear white-lettered radials.

This is beautiful 1968 GT350, this car turns heads everywhere it goes. It is equipped with a superb 302/automatic drivetrain in the correct Black interior and correct Raven Black paint. If you’re in the market for a classic that’s the perfect fit for sunny show fields and world class collections, it’s the car you’ve been waiting for!

In 1968 Shelby rekindled his relationship with Hertz Rent-a-Car to resurrect their “Rent-a-Racer” program with Shelby Mustangs as part of Hertz’s Sports Car Club fleet. Out of the total 1253 Fastback’s made 224 were commissioned by Hertz therefore leaving only 1,029 cars that were delivered to the public. In 1968 the 289ci V8 was replaced with a factory 302 V8 using an aluminum Cobra intake manifold and Holley 600 cfm carb.

One of only 1029 GT350 Fastback’s produced in 1968, this striking GT350 is very well documented with a FULL binder worth of all repair and service records since new. This GT350 in great condition. This car is equipped with a manual transmission, power steering, power brakes, fold down back seat, tilt wheel, original hub caps, AM radio, and shoulder harness. The car has been painted once, and still retains the original interior in excellent condition. The car also comes with the original Build Sheet, Sales Order, Installment Contract, Marti Report, and a copy of the original title.
