You guys must be getting tired of reading about barn finds that really weren't found in a barn on a farm. Well we have a legit barn find, found on a peach farm in southern New Jersey. This 1968 Shelby GT500KR has been hiding for the last 42 years tucked away down on the farm and has recently broken cover. Sadly, that has come about with the passing of its owner, Art Winner. Purchased in 1976, he was only the second owner of this exceptionally well-preserved Shelby.

Originally delivered to Pletcher Ford, which was just outside of Philadelphia, the Shelby spent the first few years in Pennsylvania until it was purchased by him and registered in New Jersey. Art was very secretive about this particular car and didn't drive it much, so it sat. Over the years, he logged very few miles on the odometer, totalling just a scant 21,990 miles. The time he spent behind the wheel was usually limited to quick trips on the local roads in his area. Once he was done, it was tucked back in storage.

While the car is covered in dirt, a close inspection reveals an incredibly solid hit-free body still wearing all its original sheet metal and paint. The 428 Cobra Jet engine is numbers matching, as is the rear. While those are original, the gearbox was changed at some point, as were some pieces under the hood, but overall it is in excellent condition. The interior is equally original, and while quite dirty, also exceptionally well preserved.

This car, along with another Mustang, and some property were part of his estate that is in the process of being liquidated. The proceeds from the sale of these items, as per Art's wishes, are to be given to a number of charities. We can report that as you read this, the Shelby is now headed to a new home in the Midwest, where we've been assured that what you see is going to be preserved. There are no plans for a restoration.
