My car is the 40th Anniversary Edition of the original 1968 GT500KR (King of the Road), which was only produced for one year. In 2008 a total of 1,011 KRs were built. My registry number is 157. It has the 5.4L supercharged V-8 producing 540 horsepower, 6-speed manual trans. The hood is unique (specifically designed and made for the KR) in that it is made of carbon fiber. The splitter in the lower front is also made of carbon fiber. I love this car for its looks, handling, performance and appeal. I actually stumbled across this car on the internet. It was located at a small consignment store in Oregon. After reviewing the pictures and video, I started the purchase process. I received the car in March 2017 with only 5,723 miles on the odometer. I have the original certificate of authenticity specific to this car, original window sticker, plus all books and manuals.
