1968 Shelby GT 500KR Road Test

I am a big fan of these old Road Test shows. Now with YouTube we can still enjoy them. The cars were flogged in their original condition unlike today’s restored and pampered originals. When was the last time you saw a KR or any Shelby with the factory original hubcaps?

The Shelby GT 500KR came later in the production run with the 428 CJ engine with the original 500 using the police interceptor engine.

Sit back, turn up the volume and enjoy.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
