Also known as the AC Cobra, the Shelby Cobra was introduced in 1962 and produced until 1967. A 2.6-liter Ford V8 engine powered the first units. Based on the AC Aces chassis, the Shelby Cobra was light and agile. The construction used a simple fabrication and light material including aluminum and fiberglass. A stronger rear differential was fitted to handle the increase in power. The steering box was moved outward to fit the larger engine. The cars were sent to Shelby painted and trimmed and were finished in his Los Angeles workshop. In late 1962, major design changes were made to the front end to allow for rack and pinion steering. The body style of the Shelby Cobra was a hit, featuring smooth, rounded and minimal lines.
