His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars!

GT500KR Convertible (2008-2009) Do they really exist ?

Recommended Posts

Having seen a GT500KR convertible 2008 2009 in my work parking, I'm trying to figure out this car is really  a  GT500KR. I can't find anywhere info about production for convertible KR during those 2 years. I Know they made some in1968, but what about 2008-2009

No 2008 or 2009 GT500KR convertibles. Much to my sadness. At one time had a plan to turn GT500 into GT500KR, biggest hurdle was hood. Shelby was very tight-fisted about them.

I'd call it a custom.  Can't clone something that was never made.

 SA should've built EXACTLY the same number as were built in 1968, in both coupes and convertibles.

As was stated above, NO 'verts in 08/09

Shelby American was just an extension to the manufacturing process (note 1).  Ford determined build numbers.  

Note 1:  Since the KR was COMPLETED by Shelby American, the cars count as one of the two models of pre-title Ford/Shelby vehicles, the Shelby GT being the other.

If that was the case then they (Ford) learned from their mistake and corrected course with the 12/13 B's which matched the numbers of the 69/70's.

I know, Minor details in the big picture of life, but us car folk can be a fickle bunch...
