Pair of the original Shelby Cobras
White Cobra -
Model no: CSX2281 was delivered in the mid 1960's for $5691.05 with the Wimbledon White exterior and the black interior. Later in the 70's the new owner added a chrome roll bar and wider racing wheels. A Paxton Supercharger was also installed thus making this Cobra rarer than the other already Cobras. In 1990 a frame off restoration was done.
Recent restoration works include the engine, transmission and the supercharger. The Motor was balanced and blueprinted featuring Ford Racing SVO aluminum head, a three piece NASCAR ignition, a Ford Racing roller cam, roller rockers, high strength steel crank and connecting rods with custom forged pistons, steel gears and custom high capacity aluminum radiator. It was auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson for $478,500.
Black Cobra -
1963 model. The engine was blueprinted in 1995. The whole transmission was completely rebuilt with NOS parts, a new heater and a radiator core was installed. The restoration included the engine, transmission, cooling system, the exhaust system, engine compartment and the instruments. Recently it was auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson for $401,500.

Wow! They're stunning aren't they! I've always liked the AC Cobra 427! Gorgeous! Fell in love with them ever since I saw that wild chase between the Porsche (964) 911 Turbo and the AC Cobra in the '90s movie 'Bad Boys'!
