Mustang Club of America Triple Crown Gold Level Award.

This GT500 Convertible is one of just 402 produced in the 1968 model year. Per the Marti Elite report, it is one of 157 total Shelby convertibles made in Lime Gold paint with black interior. The color combination is stunning. The Marti also outlines shoulder harness, black power top with glass backlite, extra cooling package, visibility group, wheel lip moldings, power disc brakes, power steering, AM radio, Interior Décor Group and tachometer and trip meter.

Reviewing the awards this car has received since its complete, every nut and bolt, ground-up restoration there are a number of them- ALL GOLD LEVEL. Judged in 2016 Mustang Club of America Gold at the regional in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Then on to the 2017 All Ford Show at Tulsa, Oklahoma where it received Mid America Gold. Next it was 2017 Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) Gold at Indianapolis, Indiana. Finally, in 2017, it won Mustang Club of America Grand Nationals Gold in Overland Park, Kansas. The MCA Triple Crown Award was received for completing at GOLD LEVEL at three different venues, with different judges, all within a single show season.

So what, big deal, who cares? Well, if you want the best of the best - if you want bulletproof documents that the car you are going to own is INVESTMENT GRADE and INDISPUTABLE, then you know what multiple gold judging means. If you don't need or want that, there are plenty of Shelby “drivers” out there in the world for your consideration. They are less money. They are also not this car. Rarely do I say a car is too nice to be driven - this is that car, But here's the thing - if you want it, can afford it and choose to drive it, then have at it, and congratulations.

This great GT500 is showing almost 18,000 miles and by all indications in its history the miles are believed to be accurate.

The photos on this car are a very accurate representation of the car. In looking at the Shelby Registry this car at one point in its life, was outfitted with a 427 Side Oiler. Now it is a correct 428 Police Interceptor with all the trimmings. Once again, judged Gold. Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.
