Vehicle Description

In 1962, Carroll Shelby took the sports car world by storm when it introduced the CSX2000 Cobra. Shelby American took the AC "Ace" chassis, inserted a new small block Ford engine and re-engineered the car to handle all the additional power. Weighing only 2,020 pounds, the Cobra easily vanquished sports cars from Jaguar, Chevrolet, Porsche, Aston Martin and others.

Light, nimble, and reliable, the small block Cobra combines iconic good looks with sharp handling and an amazing power to weight ratio. The roadsters incorporate safety and performance improvements without sacrificing originality. Five decades after the first one was unveiled at the New York Auto Show, the Shelby 289 Cobra is still capturing hearts.

In 1996, it took to the streets as the CSX8000 continuation series Shelby Cobra. The Cobras retain the authentic style leaf spring suspension, but are upgraded to contemporary standards; the bodies are available in fiberglass or aluminum. Each car is built to order with the customer choosing body color and stripe configuration; it is delivered as a rolling chassis, less drive train.
