Shelby Cobra For Sale

Shelby Cobra For Sale

The original 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 Carroll 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 Cobra for sale being created.

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

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

Come 1967, Ford and Carroll decided to call it quits and stopped importing the cars from England. Many thought this would be the end, 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 kit car for sale. However, there are continuation cars also available. For example, one can find the CSX, which is a fantastic representation of the original.

But, if you are someone looking to add a priceless automobile to your collection, nothing beats the real deal. While these are few and far between, they are out there and they will most certainly be available in our magazine and website.
