It was R-code specific. 1968 G.T.-350 and 1968 G.T.-500 got welded shock tower bracing but not the wrap-around bracing that the GT500KRs got.

I was thinking the same thing, Scott.

There is a pic in my gallery. ( California Special/428CJ/2006, #16 )
The engine bay was prety dusty then, but you can see the reinforcements.
