21 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 1965 Shelby Cobra for sale.

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.

Fifty years ago, Carroll Shelby began work on the most iconic roadster of all time: the 427 Cobra. If you have dreamed of owning a classic Cobra, Shelby American will build you a new one customized to your every liking. Using original tooling, the body is fashioned in either aluminum or hand-laid fiberglass. Reproduction Halibrand 15-inch knock-off wheels wearing Goodyear Eagles complete the nostalgic look. Engine specs are not published because the 427 Cobra is BYOBB, or bring your own Big Block. For under $40,000, your Cobra arrives prepped to receive a Ford FE engine and four-speed transmission. If you dare, Carroll Shelby Engine Company builds an aluminum 482ci stroker that makes 540 horsepower and 565 foot-pounds of torque.

Look for the inventory of Shelby listings to vary in price and quantity depending on the time of year and market demand. There is always a strong inventory of replica Cobras from Factory 5 Racing, Backdraft Racing, and Superformance. If you're looking for a real Shelby Cobra 427 be sure to validate the CSX chassis number is indeed in the CSX Registry.
