New in our showroom: 

This is a unique original 1968 Shelby GT350 4 speed in the desirable Acapulco blue metallic factory color, with amazing tan interior and equipped with many options. The car is one of only 528 68’ Shelby GT350's 4-speeds ever produced, and its one of approx. only 8 GT350 cars! And with this color combination. It is really rare GT350! 

Acapulco blue metallic is just one of the best colors on these cars as it makes the car's lines and shapes stand out more than on any other color. This combined with its Shelby GT350 side stripes and its light colored interior just makes it a very good-looking car and for sure one of the best designed muscle cars of its time. In 1968 the all new Shelby GT350 was still a very desirable car and with its hipo 289 V8 engine combined with its top loader 4-speed manual transmission a tuff car to beat. Being a much lighter engine than the 428, the handling and all our performance of the car was maybe even the better car against its brother the GT500. It’s well known under the Shelby fan’s and collectors that a GT350 with a manual 4 speed was the car to beat back in 1968.

For the 1968 model year, Shelby had red-designed the car to look more modern and more unique against a base mustang fastback than ever before. With its special nose pieces and trim, the lightweight hood and trunk lid, the roll cage and 4 point seatbelts, the side scoops, special Shelby steering wheel, upgraded suspension and handling packages and more, the 1968 Shelby GT350 and also the GT500 were unique cars that were ready to be used for the track and on the streets. And the all really carried Carol’s race pedigree, and they looked very promising to be used as race thorough breads as well.

Finding an original Shelby GT350 4-speed is already something very rare these days, especially because much less were produced than the GT500 and this car is a true, documented 54,000 original mile cars. That's probably also the reason why this car has survived all these years in its current condition. The car spend its entire life in the dry and sunny states and was sold new to its first owner James E Bridges in Omaha Nebraska through the McFadens Company in the same town. After that, according to the Shelby registry, the car stayed in this area until around 2010 when it was sold to its last owner who lived in Ohio. Mileage was then only around 53,000!

So the car spent almost its entire life in Nebraska, and was throughout its hardly life ever driven and apparently well maintained as it as today, still in an amazing and very original condition. And it's completely ready to be driven and enjoyed. Its overall quality is very good, and it was freshly painted in its factory original color a few years ago. At the same time, the car received some detailing.

The last owner was afraid that he would ruin the original engine of the car, and he replaced it by a freshly built version of the same type but with even more performance. However, the original engine comes with the car and is in very good and running condition. On request, we can drop that engine in as well, but it’s a nice additional feature we think to have the original engine well taken care of outside the car as now you can really drive and fool around with the current engine. If that one has a problem, better than the original and desirable original one is still safe with the car, and it won’t affect the car's overall value.

Besides the fact that this rare time capsule has all its important Shelby components, like the fiberglass hood, trunk lid and scoops still in place, the complete interior is bone stock original as well and no aftermarket or incorrect pieces were found. The only change is that a more modern type but correct Shelby cobra steering wheel was installed, but that only ad’s to the car’s sporty appearance. But the most important thing what we can confirm is that the complete engine, all its components, the transmission,  the radiator and all details were left untouched and are original to the car. So this car is numbers matching, even with the additional engine installed.

Both engines are fully inspected by us and are in fantastic condition, all original and correct, and so is the transmission and rest of the drivetrain. The car's is in a fantastic all original body and chassis condition and still equipped with its factory drivetrain and interior and all its factory options. That’s just unique, and all is documented and checked by us.

The rest of the car is also in very solid and original condition. The frame rails are in as new condition, and the rest of the underside also still carries its original pieces. The factory floor panels and trunk area all appear to be in very healthy condition due to the fact that this Shelby was always garage stored and only driven in the dry and sunny state's all of its life. This is just a very fine example of a true and really original Shelby GT350.

The car also carries all of its original trim, emblems, grill, bumpers, taillights and lenses, and they are all undamaged but could be in need of a resto or freshen up if so desired. The car is also nicely equipped with all the options you could choose from in 1968.

The car is of course in the SAAC Shelby registry, and comes with a Marti report to show its pedigree, and a clear US title that states correct low mileage in combination with the Shelby data we all can assure you that its correct. Full owner history is also known and comes with the car. All in all, what we present to you here is just a great and unique quality Shelby that’s already, checked and serviced car.

If any, this special Shelby GT350 with its stunning and very rare options and color combination must be an asset for any Shelby fan or collector. The car is not over restored but still very original, and it’s ready to be driven and enjoyed, besides that it’s also a very good investment for your money.

We can walk you around the car and show you all the important and original details and of course all the car's history and documentations. On request, we can also send you more details or make a live phone/video walk around on it.

With cars like this one it's also really important that they are truly original and with this car being an honest car you just can't ever go wrong. Besides that we will provide you with full documentation of all the original and correct components that are on it before, during, and after its restoration and everything will be documented. This way you will know that you are investing in the best possible car you can get with actual proof of it all.

So if you're looking to get something really special and one of the best handling and performing true Shelby’s for a fascinating price, this might well be the car for you. A manual 4 speed GT350 just gives its driver so much fun and pleasure that it's well worth its asking price, especially if you consider that prices for original Shelby’s in great condition such as this car are going up and up for the last decades and for sure the end is nowhere near in site.

We have seen prices of 1968 Shelby GT350’s vary from 110-150k and those cars were not as rare and with complete history such as this car is. According to well known and respected classic car appraisers such as Haggerty and Nada its value should be around 150k and that’s well below our asking price which therefor will leave room to grow for its future owner. And if you take in consideration that this car has one of the best color combinations, and is a genuine 4 speed that also comes with an additional all new Hi-po engine, this car is priced very attractively, guaranteed!
