Web Page Overview

I own a 1968 Shelby Cobra GT 350. I have been restoring the car since I found it in 1982.

I’m pretty proud of what my car has evolved into. I needed a method of documenting info about my car for my own purposes and to share with friends. What better place then to put it on a web page.

Since I am very familiar with the story of the ’68 cars as well as the whole Shelby story, I am going to include additional information about these cars. So this is not going to be just about my car.

The ’68 Shelby Cobra (Mustang) is another chapter in the Shelby story. This is the second generation Mustang that was first introduced in 1967. The ’68 model year introduced the Shelby Cobra convertibles as well as the 1968 1/2 KR Cobra Jet version.

Sales of ’68 Shelby Mustangs were expected to be more than the 3,225 sold in 1967. In fact, 4,451 Shelby Mustangs were sold in 1968. Total production in 1965-66 was 2,942 cars.
