Description

In the world of specialty cars the name Carroll Shelby is synonymous with extreme performance and big collectability. Enthusiasts that missed the early-buying boat have spent the last few decades running straight up a value curve that just won't quit rising. And on May 10th of 2012, when the legend himself passed away, the demand for authentic Shelby pieces have hit an all-time high. Smart enthusiasts with a clear eye toward the future are buying cars like this documented 1968 Shelby "Cobra" GT350. 1 of only 1054 1968 Shelby Fastback GT350's #2864 is documented in the Shelby World Registry, largely original and unrestored with only 90K original miles (miles listed in most recent registry as of 2012) with only one repaint to the classic Shelby colors Wimbledon White and accented with Le Mans Blue Stripes (originally lime gold). California Black Plate "ZPY" aka "Zippy" fully registered in California. Equipped with its original numbers matching 302, an original Paxton supercharger (date correct to early 1968), original Autolite 4100 Carburetor (equipped with Paxton), original Cobra S7 aluminum intake, desirable period correct Hurst 4 Speed Top-Loader (have date correct C-4 auto trans and bellhousing will include with sale) and 3.50 gear ratio has this GT350 pushing out an estimated 330 horses, about the same as the GT500! One might think with the addition of the dealer optioned Paxton supercharger this Shelby would place the car into a modified class for judging, but that is not the case, and is eligible for the stock class. (Pics show both with the Paxton and without, currently has the Paxton Supercharger on the car and tuned well.)
The all original deluxe black interior features wood-grain trim, special console with Stewart Warner Gauges, as well as a vintage Stewart Warner Boost Gauge mounted in gauge cluster as seen in pics), also has tilt-away steering, power steering (removed to make room for headers and supercharger, have original unit) and its original AM radio. Like all 1968 Shelby Fastbacks, this car also comes equipped with the inertia-reel harness attached to the roll bar. Glove box is signed by the man himself, Carroll Shelby. Highly optioned, additional options other than mentioned above include: extra cooling package, power brakes with front discs, visibility group, sport deck rear seat, tachometer and trip odometer, wheel well moldings, and heavy duty battery. According to Marti is 1 of 24 GT350's optioned from the Shelby plant. All original body panels, sheet metal, fiberglass and floors retained. Plus original 10 spoke wheels (not repro's) and all original VIN stamps/Tags in place, making this Shelby unmolested and extremely rare in this condition. Comes with rare Original Shelby owners manual & owner identification card, copy of window sticker, rare original dealer brochure, deluxe Marti / VIN report, copy of verification by Shelby restorer, and various other SAAC documentation. I have recently reshot the fenders, front bumper and properly aligned the hood, otherwise as mentioned above, only one full repaint. Also redid tachometer and gauge wiring.
This is no trailer queen nor is it a basket case, she is a very strong driver. Overall, this GT350 is a very nice unrestored driver and rare piece of Shelby history. Prices are steadily climbing as these vintage Shelby's are only on there way up! Only serious buyers please, this is a relatively low reserve Shelby GT350 priced to sell. This is for sale locally, so I am also considering all reasonable offers, but only reasonable offers, no lowballers or tire kickers please,,, Selling due to upcoming property purchase, have to clear out a few of my toys to make it happen, so it's cliche but true, my loss is your gain! Thanks for your interest! Call 415 373 2965 or email via eBay with questions. Good luck!
