Classic Car Overview

Born from the cooperation of the eminent namesake Caroll Shelby and the historic British manufacturer AC cars, the Shelby Cobra, or AC Cobra in Britain, is one of the most recognizable and world-renowned performance vehicles of all time. As the story goes, Carroll Shelby birthed the idea when he wrote to AC cars asking if they would be interested in making him a car capable of housing a V8 engine. AC cars responded, agreeing to fulfill Shelby’s request provided that he come up with a worthy engine. Off Shelby went to Chevrolet manufacturers, but the Corvette kingpins refused his request for fear of adding competition against their own baby.

The first 75 models were fitted with a 260 cubic in. 4.3L V8, while the last 51 carried a larger 289 cubic in. 4.7L V8 instead. In late 1962, a change, made by AC’s chief engineer Alan Turner, to the car’s body allowed for rack and pinion steering. In e
