Carroll Shelby Experimental #2242 is well documented in the Shelby American World Registry. Invoiced on February 27, 1964 to Fergus Ford of Skokie, Illinois, it was equipped with the Class A accessory package, which included chromed 5.5-inch wire wheels with "AC" knock-offs, a quick-fill fuel cap, dash-mounted rear-view mirror, wind wings, radio and antenna and chromed bumperettes.
After a lengthy stay on the showroom floor, the car eventually sold to a buyer from Texas in the mid-late sixties. In 1969 it was purchased from the first owner by Clark Van Norstrum of Greenwich, CT, who added four 2-barrel downdraft Weber carburetors, a roll bar and a hood scoop. Mr. Van Nostrum owned the car for 27 years until advertising it for sale in 1996 as a Red car with Black interior. Van Nostrum sold the Cobra to R. Leblanc of Los Gatos, CA who in turn sold it to the current owner in 2004.
CSX2242 is now fresh from a complete bare-metal restoration during which the hood scoop was removed and a dual 4-barrel manifold and carburetor refitted to return it to its original configuration. An example such as this is very rare and becoming extremely difficult to acquire as more and more disappear into private museums and collections. A classic beauty and a joy to drive, this well-documented no-stories 289 Cobra is ready to thrill and reward its next steward.

to scare you, then keep reading! Under the hood is a monster 460 cubic-inch
V8, followed by a Richmond five-speed transmission, which makes for a fun

keep you in place during hard cornering. Other performance upgrades include

of course not the original series of Shelby Cobra cars which now demand
hundreds of thousands of dollars by collectors when they do come up for
sale , but they are also not copies. They are simply new Shelby Cobras
built as a continuation of the original series of cars. In other words,
these are new Shelby Cobras. If you are a fan of Carroll Shelby and his
cars you'll like this video as we get deep into the history of what many
believe is America's most beautiful and iconic race car.

Top Gear testing a Mustang shelby GT500
Starting in 2008, previous 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustangs could be sent to Carroll
Shelby's Special Performance Plant in Las Vegas to be rebuilt into a Super
Snake, which resembles the 1968 GT500KR, for an additional cost of $27,995.
The Super Snake will offer a 605 hp 5.4LEaton roots type supercharged
version with warranty. A Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharged version with
"over 725 hp" will also be available, without warranty and a 0-60 time of
under 4 seconds. The Super Snake is inspired by the 1967 GT500 Super
Snake, a car made by Carroll Shelby for Goodyear Tires
Automobile racer Carroll Shelby transformed a conventional Mustang into a serious track racer
designated as the "GT-350". The fastbacks were shipped from the San Jose,
California assembly plant and fitted with a "Hi-Po" 289, 4-speed manual
transmission, and included front disc brakes and heavy duty rear drum
brakes. Additionally, shortened hoods and deleted rear seats with
identifying trim were among the visual variations. These select Mustangs were converted to street,
road racing, and drag cars in Shelby's plant at Los Angeles International
1965 Shelby AC Cobra

- Factory Five Racing Replica!
- Fuel Injected, All Aluminum 427ci Side Oiler V8!
- 5-Speed Tremec Manual Transmission!
The AC Cobra, sold as the Ford/Shelby AC Cobra in the USA and often known
colloquially as the Shelby Cobra, is an America-engined British sports car
produced intermittently since 1962.
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present a very special 1965 Shelby
AC CObra Replica. This beautiful roadster is from the dry state of
California, has an incredible paint job, 427ci V8 and 5-speed manual
As a replica, the Shelby you see here started its life as a kit car. The
body and frame are from the highly reputable Factory Five Racing. Factory
Five Racing makes the best of the best Shelby Cobra kits that are designed
for hardcore racing junkies. The body is in incredible shape and extremely
sound. It is painted in a deep, wet black paint with red metallic flake and
twin burgundy stripes down the center of the car. The paint looks excellent
with only minor imperfections. The hood has a center scoop and the sides
have vents right above the heads to allow cool air in to cool them. The
chrome on the car is in excellent shape and shines bright. This is a
seriously gorgeous Shelby Cobra and is sure to turn heads!
Inside, you will that the interior is finished in black leather and looks
great. The seats show no signs of wear and also have 5-point racing
harnesses installed for safety. The dashboard matches the rest of the
interior and houses a set of original style black face gauges that look
great. The late and great automotive pioneer, Carroll Shelby, has signed
the glove box on the dashboard, giving this Shelby a very personal touch.
Under the hood is where things get interesting. It is powered by an all
aluminum 427 cubic inch side oiler, fuel injected V8 engine. We do have the
spec card for the Comp Cams camshaft. The massive engine breathes through a
set of side exit headers that have an awesome Exhaust note and look just as great. It also has
MSD ignition and Accel DFI Wide Band O2 Controller & Datalogger. Mated to
the engine is a 5-speed Tremec manual transmission, making this car a blast
to drive. It’s safe to say that this roadster has an excellent, modern
and dependable driveline!
The car sits aggressively upon a set of polished aluminum knock off wheels,
wrapped in 26.5×8.0-15 tires in the front and 26.5×10.5-15 tires in the
rear. There is also adjustable Koni suspension and full Wilwood brakes with
Wilwood Brake Controller.
Included with the purchase of this car is over $45,000 in receipts, many
diagrams/schematics and a Certificate of Authenticity of Carroll Shelby’s
signature on the dashboard. The VIN to this awesome Shelby AC Cobra is
CA964288 and the mileage currently shows 1,935. The car is titled as a
Special Construction vehicle and is being sold on a clean and clear
California title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
Carroll Shelby Goes Racing
Ford provided Carroll Shelby with an engine for his start up sports car
company and AC supplied the bodies. Shelby hired a bunch of hot rod
builders in California and they created the Cobra.
Soon Ford turned to Shelby to beef up the Mustang and turn it into a Corvette
beater. The GT 350 was born.
But there was more. Henry Ford II had tried to buy Ferrari and was
spurned. Not one who was used to losing he decided to beat Enzo Ferrari on
the track. After Ford's first forays stalled they turned to Shelby to beef
up the GT 40s and take on Ferrari.
Pete Brock, Ken Miles and Dan Gurney put the cars through their paces.
