Shelby production was taken in-house under Ford control by 1968. This change allowed for more insight and development from the Ford execs in the production process. This also meant a few design changes that production year. The front end saw the intake scoops pushed out to the edge with twist hood locks, and the addition of rear positioned hood louvers. The grill was now highlighted in trim with rectangle Marchal or Lucas fog lamps still positioned there. The GT350 would now receive the 302ci V8 fitted with an oval Cobra air cleaner, Cobra aluminum intake with Holley 600cfm carburetion, highlighted by Cobra valve covers. Output would be rated at a respectable 250 horsepower. It would by a hot seller with 1,657 units built, but only 404 would be convertibles!
