    Carroll Shelby and his famous Ford powered Cobras need no introduction to any motorsport’s enthusiast. The years of Carroll Shelby and Ford’s partnership created some of the best race and street cars in automotive history.  Shelby’s fame and success is owed to his third iteration of the AC-bodied Cobra, which utilized Ford’s new 289-cubic-inch V-8, that provided the perfect balance of handling and raw power. Rated at 306 horsepower, the 289 was tasked with propelling a car that weighed only 2,000 pounds. With such exciting performance, it is no wonder that the Cobra became an instant success, making both Cobra and Carroll Shelby household names and, ultimately, besting Ferrari to bring the FIA International GT Championship to the United States for the first time in 1965

     This 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 is a striking example of Carroll Shelby's potent intercontinental sports car. At first glance, one immediately notices the stunning Princess Blue paint, chrome wire-wheels, and appropriate bias ply white sidewall tires - all of which are factory original specifications. According to this Cobra registry, this example was billed to Shelby American on 5/26/24 and shipped to Los Angeles on 6/5 aboard the “SS Loch Loyal”. After completion at the Shelby factory, it was invoiced to Harr Ford, Inc. in Worcester, MA. 

     Legendary Motorcar purchased the Cobra from which is believed to be the car's 2nd owner whom retained ownership for 40 years. LMC performed a complete restoration for the car's next owner.  The original body was removed from the original chassis and both completely stripped and refinished.  All mechanical systems and numbers matching drivetrain were completely disassembled and rebuilt. The result is what you see here today is an outstanding, desirable late production rack and pinion 289 restored to original street specifications.
