In '68 there were 2,083 GT-500 fastbacks produced(1,150 GT-500's/933 GT-500KR's) and there were 720 GT-500 convertibles produced(402 GT-500's/318 GT-500KR's) I'm am unaware of ANY GT-500H's that were built by Shelby. The only Shelby vehicle with the "H" suffix was the '66 GT-350H(Hertz rental cars) which were primarily black with gold stripes, but a limited number of these cars came candy apple red with gold stripes. If someone is trying to sell you a '68 GT-500H...I would take it to be a a load of BS. Every Shelby is backed with paperwork from Shelby-American and can be traced through the Shelby American Automobile Club. Hope this helps!

that would probably be why I was unaware of it's existance. I would still run the VIN through Shelby American Automobile Club to make sure it's not a regular mustang converted to look like a GT-500H....

*off topic*
I once made a guy with a '69 "Yenko" Camaro leave a car show due to sheer embarrassment...The guy claimed it was a true Yenko car with the all-aluminum 427. I then pointed out the cast-iron heads and block that were painted to look like aluminum as well as the improper graphics on the body. I almost thought he was gonna cry.

Just don't end up being that guy because you didn't research it enough to make sure it is what it is.
