Here is an AC Shelby Cobra. It was a show chassis displayed at the Shelby board meetings. Long history, too much for here, but first part shown below. Dyno available 425hp. Amazing car!
This 1964 AC Cobra was originally built as a show chassis for Shelby American in order to showcase the model’s underpinnings. It was sent in 1965 to Cal Automotive, a Shelby subcontractor, where a Ford T-bucket body was installed. The car was then registered for street use, and later in the mid-1990s was fitted with a hand-formed aluminum Cobra body by Kimmins Custom Fabrication of Lake Havasu City, Arizona. After being raced in the late-1990s, it received a refresh and was assigned chassis number COB5998. The current owner acquired the car in 2011 and subsequently commissioned Cobra Automotive of Wallingford, Connecticut to perform a mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment, which included rebuilding the Weber-carbureted 289ci V8. A T-10 four-speed manual transmission was also installed along with a Tilton racing clutch, Hurst Super Shifter, Girling master cylinder, Penske racing shocks, and more. The car was invited to and participated in the 50th annual Cobra Reunion, held in Monterey, California in 2013. It is listed in the SAAC Registry as outlined below and is titled as a 1964 Ford, though in race configuration would be difficult to drive on the street. The car is now offered on dealer consignment at no reserve with spare parts, refurbishment documentation, period photos, historical paperwork, and a clean California title.
