Shelby Cobra For Sale

Used Shelby Cobra For Sale


The original Cobra has a history that starts in England and ends in the United States, beginning with a letter from Carroll Shelby asking AC Cars to create a car he could fit a V8 engine into. AC Cars agreed, and it was up to Shelby to find an engine. After being denied an engine from Chevrolet, hope was found after hearing that Ford wanted a car to compete with the Corvette. All of this lead to the original Shelby Cobra for sale being created.

Production of the Cobra was simple, as AC Cars provided Shelby with bodies that were trimmed, painted, and complete, leaving him with the job of inserting the engine. At the time, those looking for a Shelby Cobra replica for sale, were out of luck, as they were almost exclusively created for the track and professional racing.

The Cobra was triumphant on the track, winning races left and right. Eventually, Shelby upped the ante with a 427 cu. in. engine, resulting in Cobra 427 as we know it today. Unfortunately, the 427 did not sell well. This caused Ford to fit a majority of road-going AC Cobras with smaller bore engines that were lower in cost.

Come 1967, Ford and Carroll Shelby decided to call it quits and stopped importing the cars from England. Many thought this would be the end of the Cobra, but with so many fans of the car worldwide, that would never happen. If you look at the market today, it’s easy to find a Shelby Cobra kit car for sale. However, there are continuation cars also available. For example, one can find the Cobra CSX, which is a fantastic representation of the original.
