The Best 1968 Shelby Yellow Convertible Page
In the past, world record prices have been set for convertibles and a few bright yellow
GT500KRs led way. I thought now would be a good time to discuss
the yellow convertibles.
I have seen many numbers associated with the bright, yellow cars. It was
not until Kevin Marti obtained the rights to share the Ford database, that we
knew exactly how many special paint convertibles were built. I have now determined that there is a very
high probability that all special paint convertibles were yellow.
I highly recommend you contact Marti Auto if you need information on your car.
The unique color is actually a Ford Special Color code WT6066. Yellow convertibles
came in two sizes. Originally seven GT350s and 42 GT500KRs were built. That makes the
total number of yellow convertibles 49. Technically, only 48 were were actually painted yellow.
One car was painted white by mistake at the factory. This is rarity is documented.
This is car # 3818 a very well documented example of an original GT500KR. It is an original 4spd, air conditioned car. Did you
know there were 5 yellow, 4spd, air conditioning convertibles?
By my count, 41 of the 49 yellow convertibles are accounted for. If you have or know of a yellow Shelby
convertible, please drop me an email. Have you seen any of these cars?
