In 1960, when his racing career was cut short due to health issues, Carroll Shelby looked for a way to continue to 'scratch the itch' he had for racing cars and decided that building one of his own was the way to go. So he managed to get Ford Motor Co. to lend him a small-block V8 to marry to the AC Ace sports car chassis. And so begun the birth of the legendary 'COBRA' -- a name that came to him in a dream.

By 1964, the Cobras were a force to be reckoned with amongst the SCCA, US Road Racing Championship and the domestic FIA events of Daytona and Sebring. And at the hands of such legendary factory drivers like Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, Bob Johnson, Billy Krause and Bob Bondurant, the Cobras were regularly taking Corvette, Jaguar and Aston Martin to task.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, Shelby American produced 50 limited edition continuation (CSX7000) Shelby 289 FIA Cobras.

Some of the modern updates include a new dash, widened front and rear fenders, cut back doors, racing wheels featuring a pin drive hub and oil cooler scoops. All 50 Cobras came with Shelby issued CSX serial numbers and a place in the Shelby registry.

For hair raising performance this special Cobra offered here has a "built" 331 cubic inch Ford "R" code small block topped with 4 iconic Weber carburetors and backed up with a top loader 4 speed transmission.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a limited edition genuine Shelby Cobra.
