Car Catcher: 1968 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible in Lime Green

Sponsored article presented by Fantasy Junction.


How about a summer cruiser that offers it all: droptop, four-speed box, plenty of power and the famed Shelby label? 

Fantasy Junction is offering that total package with this 1968 Ford Shelby GT500 convertible. Power comes from an “S” code, 428-cubic-inch V8. Other options include power steering, power front disc brakes, AM radio and the Interior Décor Group.

A previous owner repainted the car red, but it again wears its factory color. “Today this Shelby GT 500 convertible presents in excellent condition,” the listing states. “The correct Lime Green paint is glossy, contains the proper density metal flake, and shows excellent depth throughout. A few minor paint imperfections are notable when viewing the finish up close particularly at the front of the car, including one surface crack on the forward portion of the fiberglass hood.”

Panel gaps, the listing continues, are where they should be: “The hood, doors, and trunk lid show very good panel gaps and proper fitting to the body, consistent with production fitment of the period. The fiberglass hood shows only minor deviation from the inboard fender lines, though markedly better than original versions which often were quite poor.”

Perhaps our best part of the description: “With the top down, the large open cabin delivers effortless driving pleasure, offering the added plus of ample power on tap with a flick of the gearshift and a quick foot to the floor.”

Insuring your classic car investment may cost less than you think. Learn more.
