While Ford rated the 428 Cobra Jet at 335 HP, less than the 360 HP rating given the 428 Police Interceptor it was replacing in the Shelbys, its true output was believed to be closer to 400 HP. Its 440 lb-ft torque peak also surpassed the Police Interceptor’s 420. All the Cobra Jets in Shelby GT500s were fitted with ram air induction, which meant the distinctive oblong Cobra air cleaner housings gave way to more conventional round air cleaners with rubber gaskets that sealed to the underside of the Shelby’s dual-scooped fiberglass hood.
This KR, paired the 428 Cobra Jet with a Select-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, its shift lever coming out of the floor through a new-for-1968 center console. The black bucket-seat interior is surrounded by tinted glass, Shelby’s autograph adorns the passenger-side sun visor, and a Philco pushbutton AM radio and tilt steering column are among the other interior amenities. Outside, the Wimbledon White paint is accented with blue rocker panel stripes, and Lucas driving lights are mounted in the grille. This car’s double A-arm front suspension has been rebuilt, and the chassis is equipped with power steering and power brakes. The KR rolls on Goodyear bias-ply tires and Shelby’s optional 10-spoke aluminum wheels.
