For those not in the know, the “KR” nameplate stood for “King of the Road,” which suggested that this was the most powerful Mustang ever built as of 1968. Today, the King of the Road is regarded as the ultimate Shelby Mustang ever produced and it’s among the most expensive muscle cars on the market.

Pricewise, looking at realistic offers, that reflect the car’s value in today’s market. Please call to discuss.
