Classic Car Overview

1964 Shelby Cobra 289 For Sale- Complete Restoration By Cobra Specialist,Long Term Ownership LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 Of all the great 1960s sports cars, few have been as influential as the Shelby Cobra. Le Mans-winning driver Carroll Shelby reasoned that Ford’s new lightweight V-8 would make a promising powerplant for a sporting chassis, so he fitted the new engine to an AC Ace. The result, the Cobra, combined California hot rod know-how with European chassis dynamics. In competition trim, Cobras achieved an impressive record, and were a major force in Ford’s dominance of international sports car racing in the 1960s. As documented by the Shelby Registry, as well as a copy of the factory invoice, this 289 Cobra, was shipped from AC to Los Angeles aboard the SS Pacific Fortune on November 14, 1963. The Cobra stayed at Shelby American’s facility in Los Angeles, where it may have been used as a factory demonstrator, before being sold to dealer Joe Brown Ford in Louisville, Kentucky, on May 15, 1964. Originally finished in red with a black interior, it was equipped with “Class A” accessories, which included chrome wheels and a radio with antenna. By March 1965, the Cobra had been purchased by Louisville resident John M. Winemiller, who started enjoying the car immediately by competing in local autocrosses. Mr. Winemiller became acquainted with notable Cobra racer Don Roberts, who, according to a previous owner’s write-up that accompanies the sale, had purchased a number of surplus XE-specification racing engines from Carroll Shelby and Lew Spencer’s Hi-Performance Motors after the shop’s closing in 1967. These engines featured a special block casting with four-bolt main bearing caps, a windage tray, and were developed by Ford for use in GT40s and endurance-racing sedans. Roberts reportedly rebuilt one of these extremely rare engines for this car and installed it with a GT40-style intake and Weber carburetors, the setup that remains in the car to this day. The Shelby would go to Winemiller’s son Jake after his father’s passing in the mid-1970’s. By 1983, Harry Campbell of Grain Valley, Missouri, had bought the Cobra from Jake Winemiller. In 1985, Mr. Campbell delivered the Shelby to esteemed Cobra restoration expert Bill Murray of Longmont, Colorado. As documented by accompanying receipts and photos, the cobra was completely disassembled to a bare frame and body for a complete ground up restoration. The original body was modified as necessary, to update the car to FIA cut back door specs. The suspension was re-bushed, the engine rebuilt, and the finished car was painted dark blue with traditional white racing stripes. This beautiful work still presents well today, a testament to the care taken at the time by Murray. Mr. Campbell would go on to cherish his Cobra for an additional 33 years before selling it in 2018.
