I thought the Shelby's had the black perimeter on the bezels. Most I have seen do. Even very high end restorations.

Even some high end restorations are incorrect. For 68 the Shelby, GTCS and HCS bezels are all chrome. You may be thinking of the regular mustang bezel that had the black in the center of it.

‘69 & ‘70 Shelbys have the black trim, but as Marty stated ‘68s are chrome.
The Coral Snake is a great source for ‘68 Shelby information

The bezels have a black border on them, because that is the way that they were made for the 1965 Ford Thunderbird.
