After many years of restoring 1965/6 K code Fastbacks I finally made the leap to Shelby ownership! As sad as I was to sell my 1965 K code Fastback, I was thrilled to locate and purchase a Lime Gold on Black 1968 GT350 that has been off the road since the late 80's. Its an early four speed, #220 to be exact. I have forwarded all of the info that I have about the car to the 1968 registrar as well. Looking forward to the experience of restoring my dream car over the coming months, as well as making some friends here.

Congratulations and welcome to the club. You will love it. Mine is very close to yours (1968 GT350, lime gold on black, auto, #237, delivered by Mel Burns Ford in Long Beach CA). Maybe they were build the same day?

Please post some pictures.

Triple Cool. 1968, GT350, Lime Gold Green.
Very similar to what I own.
Congrats.

There are a lot of people that dislike the color. I ve grown to really like it.
Keep in mind, it was very popular back in the late 60's.

I think Mr Gaines is testing me again...it was the fourth most popular color in 1968, so it must have been really popular in 1967.

The most recent '67 registry says Lime Gold was the most popular '67 Shelby color at 25% of the cars

The most recent '68 registry says Lime Gold was the third most popular color at 14.6%

Do you think the sold stats for other Fords those years for that color as relevant to the popularity in general or not?
