Car story doesn't have a happy ending........
you are from New Zealand, and you have spent the better part
of your adult life looking for the perfect Shelby GT500
KR. You want a low mileage, original Black, Four Speed, Air Conditioned
You get a call
from your broker in the states. He tells you he has found a spotless,
three owner, original KR with 53,339 miles. History is that the
owner of a local Ford Dealership bought the car from the original
owner. The car remained the property of the Ford Dealership until
the owners death, at which time it became the property of his
estate. This is when the third owner acquired the Shelby. It
is all original with the exception of one repaint, the correct
color, 15 to 20 years ago, with reams of authenticating documentation.
You have found
your car... The broker forwards some photographs:
