Debuting at the 1962 New York automobile show with a bare aluminum finish completed by hand with steel wool, the first Shelby Cobra captured the full attention of both the public and the motoring press. Carroll Shelby himself was already a winning race car driver and the 289 Cobra forged his reputation as a world-class manufacturer of sports cars as well. Terrorizing race tracks around the globe, the Cobra became one of the most iconic American muscle cars in history and was said to be a genuine assault weapon of handling and performance. Today, the Cobra is instantly recognizable with original examples selling regularly in excess of one million dollars.

Not to be confused with replicas or a kit car, this is a fully documented Shelby with a proper CSX number, a Manufacturers Statement of Origin and is signed by Carroll Shelby. Only a small number are built each year and each one is included in the official Shelby Registry. The ‘8000 Series’ marks the continuation of where it all started. The 289 Street Roadster, or S/R, is a cleanly designed street car originally conceived by Carroll Shelby in 1962. These Cobras are supplied with under-car exhaust, wire wheels and all the street options of the day, including leaf spring suspension. There are improvements for safety and drivability, such as rack and pinion steering, superior brakes, improved cooling and heavy duty Tremec 5 speed transmission.

With a Statement of Origin of May 25, 2005, the original owner purchased this Cobra through XK’s Limited in San Luis Obispo, who assembled it to his exacting specifications. Finished in LeMans Blue with black vinyl interior, today the odometer reads just 513 miles from new. Powered by an original 289 cubic inch Ford V8, upgraded with 351 heads heads ported with larger valves and more, the entire assembly was balanced and has a compression ratio of 9.6:1. Other standard equipment includes Autometer 289 type gauges, Baer racing brakes, and 72 spoke wire wheels. A complete binder supporting the purchase, title, registration, build specifications, engine costs, and all receipts and communication from builder to the original owner are included. This classic “slab-sided” 289 Shelby Cobra Street Roadster is now ‘turn-key ready’ for immediate delivery and enjoyment for the next owner. Titled as 0000 Special Construction.
