This pristine piece of automotive history represents a time when power, performance, and style converged in a way that has rarely been matched. Under the hood, a factory-fitted 302 cubic-inch V8 engine roars with vigor. It boasts an all-aluminum Cobra intake manifold, crowned by a Holley 600 cfm carburetor and a Cobra oval air cleaner. The iconic Cobra valve covers serve as a fitting crown for this thoroughbred engine, ensuring it not only runs like a dream but also looks the part.
What makes this Cobra GT350 even more special is its convertible status—a rarity among the limited 404 produced. The 302ci V8 engine, mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, receives a boost from a period-correct Paxton Supercharger, added by a previous owner. This exclusive enhancement elevates the horsepower from a respectable 250 to a thrilling 340, transforming the car into a true powerhouse.
This extraordinary 1968 Shelby Cobra GT350 Convertible bears the Shelby Serial # 8T03J13456801034 and gleams in its original Highland Green coat. Inside, the Saddle Decore Bucket Seats offer a taste of vintage luxury, while a 3.89 standard axle ratio and a 4-speed manual transmission promise an exhilarating driving experience.
As a testament to its authenticity and legacy, the car retains its original Shelby VIN door and Buck Tags, along with the invoice. Furthermore, its detailed ownership history is meticulously documented in the SAAC Registry, adding to its provenance.
Options such as the White Power Convertible Top with a Glass Backlite, an Extra Cooling Package, Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, and a Tilt-Away Steering Wheel enhance the car’s appeal and driving comfort.
