    If that is a real GT500KR, unrestored, i could see it going for $20k, maybe more. The serial numbers from Shelby Automotive is still there so it lends some legitimacy to the car. That is a VERY rare car. Fully restored, i could see it go for $200k, maybe more. But it wouldn't be cheap. The interior looks pretty shot, the body needs a ton of work, and that motor has to be rebuilt. That is an exceptional find.

    Why would they even let it get to this?

    Perhaps the owner passed away and the family forgot about it.

    In that condition, with the original 428....

    As is: $25,0000

    Cost to Restore: 30,000

    Auction Price: $95,000 - $105,000

    issue at hand is that the gt500kr was essentially just another fastback Mustang with a 428, some custom Shelby suspension bits, and an appearance package. it wasn't like the boss 429 required extensive modifications and used and additionally extremely rare one off motor. a well rested or, or better yet an original unrestored boss 429 will go for $200,000

    If it's real.

    You guys are so far off its not funny.

    I know a guy that would give 80k for that in a second if it's ACTUALLY real

    Essentially and rare mustang don't go together

    65 k code comes to mind. Essentially a 4 speed 289 solid cam. ???? Right? That's it?

    I have s real z28. Couldn't touch a real boss 302 for the money, comparatively. Let alone a Shelby or gt500 or KR!

    Unrestored boss 429 is upwards of a million dollar car.

    Show me one for 200k

    I'll start driving right now


    As an example, mecum has one on the block

    Unrestored boss 429 est 600k-750k right now.

    I believe it was owned by an old man that passed away and the wife just left it there until someone found it.
