You could own it for practically nothing!

"Automotive artistry" is a phrase often thrown around with casual abandon, but when one lays eyes on the 1968 Paxton Supercharged Shelby Cobra GT350 Convertible, you know you've encountered a design worthy of such lofty nomenclature. This is not just a car; it's a time capsule, a rolling sculpture of American muscle that captures the late '60s zeitgeist in steel, rubber, and roaring horsepower.

The Carroll Shelby Legacy

The 1968 Shelby Cobra GT350 marks a high point in automotive design and is widely considered the last true Mustang designed by Carroll Shelby himself. The GT350 underwent a transformative rebirth in '68, adopting the Cobra name and positioning itself not just as a street car but as a street legend.

The Sublime Heart of the Beast

Beneath the hood, the GT350 harbors a factory 302 cubic-inch V8 powerplant, replete with an all-aluminum Cobra intake manifold. The addition of a Holley 600 cfm carburetor and a Cobra oval air cleaner lend it a level of performance that turns mere driving into an occasion. Crowned by Cobra valve covers, the 302 is not just an engine; it's an objet d'art.

The Paxton Difference

This particular GT350 convertible has been endowed with a period-correct Paxton Supercharger. The Paxton addition amplifies the horsepower from a substantial 250 to an astonishing 340 bhp. It's not merely an upgrade; it's a game-changer that elevates this GT350 into an echelon of raw power that's as intoxicating as it is elusive.

Rarity & Provenance

With only 404 models ever produced, this convertible is a unicorn among Mustangs. Its rarity is complemented by an impeccable provenance, including Shelby Serial # 8T03J13456801034, and a detailed ownership history that's documented in the SAAC Registry. Accompanying the vehicle are the original Shelby VIN door and Buck Tags, along with a Marti Report—a litany of authenticity for the true collector.

Originality Meets Luxury

Painted in original Highland Green and adorned with Saddle Decore Bucket Seats, the GT350 offers a 4-speed manual transmission and a 3.89 standard axle ratio.
