One of the greatest American muscle cars can now be yours



John Hollansworth Jr./Mecum Auctions

One of the greatest American muscle cars in history will cross the block at a Mecum's Kansas City auction in March: a 1968 Shelby GT-500KR Fastback.


Yup, the one with the 428 "Cobra Jet" engine.

That's pure American muscle right there.

In a collector car market dominated by eight-figure Ferraris, a black Shelby Mustang is a welcome relief. An every-man's hero. A Budweiser in a wine bar.

The auction house does not give a pre-sale estimate. However classic car insurer Hagerty sets a value for this model at $146,000-184,000 in good to excellent condition.
