The barn find is definitely an interesting concept that shows you lots of not only automotive history but also something about people in general and how much we have along with how it’s easy to take it for granted or lose sight of material things sometimes. Now, not every single bard find situation is exactly a vehicle that has been taken for granted, however, when you see some of these cars just left behind to rot, you really have to wonder exactly what happened in someone’s life to cause them to lose interest in the car or forget about a car to the point where an incredibly rare and valuable machine, one of fewer than 318 to be exact, is left in a garage to simply deteriorate into the ground as it’s been parked since 1978.
This time, the topic of discussion is not other than a 1968 Shelby GT500 KR. Essentially, the car is a more robust version of a regular GT500 and several other options that make it a one-of-a-kind machine that was really designed to go back-and-forth with competition from Chevrolet. However, as this is a barn find video, it’s not necessarily a car that’s in the best condition that you’ll find out there. What we’d do see, though, are the remnants of the machine that have managed to weather the elements in a shed. After going over this thing, you can practically feel the history teaming out of every pore, kind of giving you a visualization of what this thing was like when it was rolling through the streets all those years ago.
If you follow along with the video down below, you’ll be able to check out this car for yourself, going along for a journey through this barn find that really proves to be an entertaining and educational journey that might just teach you a little bit about this American icon of which there aren’t many left!
