This year is 50th Anniversary for Shelby, so they pulled out their first ever Shelby Cobra to the daylight. That’s the car that started it all. This Cobra was constructed by Carroll himself when he paired AC Ace body with Ford V8 that developed 260 horses [fifty years ago!].
The photos show the car was driven. It is worth nearly 20 million dollars now, but nobody’s gonna sell it. It is legacy. Shelby Cobra legacy… Probably insurance payment for this Cobra would kill most of us, but for ordinary  cars Churchill motor insurance should be a good deal.
