1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR, Red w/stripes
In 1968 six special paint colors appeared on Shelby’s. They were known by their special “WT” Identification code number. The total production number of these special “WT” paint cars was just 159 across all six paint variations. These cars were sold as part of the Ford’s “Summer Sales Promotion”. The “WT” cars were offered on both the GT500KR and GT350 models, and were only available with black or saddle interiors. The rarity of these cars is increased because they could not be ordered from Shelby. To get your hands on one of these cars, your Shelby dealer had to track down the “WT” car you were after throughout the Shelby dealer network.
The first release in this series is based off of the famous Coral Snake car. This is the only “WT” special order paint car to receive a saddle interior. This colour combo easily puts it into one of the rarest cars in the Shelby line us as only 3 cars were made in this combination!
