About a 1968 Cobra Gt 500
Recently I come across this car in a bar. The older gentlemen wants to sell it
and he is the second owner. He says it is a Shelby Cobra GT 500. It has a
289 hypo in it. I think the guy that sold it to him may have not told him the
right information. I was able to find out that they did put in some 289's in
these during a UAW strike. Were any of these hypos? Is there a Shelby
Torino? It has 289 emblems on the front fenders. Was there many of these
289's used? How many horsepower were they? Is this a rare car? It is a
very clean car and 4 speed. What might it be worth? Anything I should look
for in the vin numbers? Appreciate any information. Thank you.
Photos would help.
Hello Tom, What can you tell me about the 1968 Torino? I do have the vin number now: 8A42Y253345. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo. Thank you, Jeff

Yes that is the car. Did you buy it? Nice car! Are you selling it?
I know this is old, but Shelby never did a Torino and the 289 was completely replaced by the 302 for the 68 model year. Based on the VIN that is a 68 Torino GT fastback and should have a dual 4 bbl 390.
