The Shelby Cobra was a popular 2-door roadster produced from 1962 to 1967. Carroll Shelby was the creator, asking British manufacturer AC to provide a body based on the previous Ace models and fitting a Ford V8 engine. The chassis was a simple twin-tube frame strengthened to support the additional horsepower. 4.3-liter engines, soon upgraded to 4.7-liter units, powered the first cars. From 1963 to 1965, the MkII variant was offered. Major design changes were made to the front end to fit a new rack and pinion steering. The car was equipped with disc brakes and all-around independent suspension. The end-result was a light, powerful and agile roadster with a gorgeous body style.
From 1963 to the summer of 1965, about 528 units of the Shelby Cobra MkII were built. Shelby Cobra models are highly sought, which makes it difficult to come by a good example.
