” Delivered to Kenray Ford in Dallas, Texas, this awesome Shelby likely spent very little time in the showroom before its big power and big style were unleashed on big city streets. After roughly three decades of excellent maintenance and accident-free driving, the car received a ground-up, rotisserie restoration that included stripping and reworking each of its original panels. Once those laser-straight lines and super-smooth surfaces were adequately prepped, correct Wimbledon White was buried in thick clearcoat and decorated with precise GT500 KR side stripes. And today, this Shelby is a first class show piece that can anchor any serious muscle car collection or hedge any major investment portfolio.
The GT500 threw fuel on the muscle car fire by not only adding power, but also introducing some of the coolest and most aggressive Mustang styling cues ever created. At the front of this KR, a stainless-trimmed grille hangs big Lucas driving lamps behind clear Ford headlights, a bright chrome bumper and bullet-style parking lamps. At the top of that grille, a familiar “S H E L B Y” script leads the eye to a correct fiberglass hood, which is founded in mirror-like stainless and correctly tinted glass. At the sides of that glass, a straight profile hangs small scoops, ornate Cobra Jet emblems and subtle fender extensions around traditional door handles, a correct chrome mirror and dent-free rocker guards. And at the back of that profile, a smooth silver valence centers correct tail lights and a detailed fuel filler between a second chrome bumper, bright reverse lamps, KR-exclusive exhaust tips and a correct, “S H E L B Y” branded decklid. ”
