Classics Revealed: The Shelby Cobra
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Shelby Cobra is perhaps the World's most
iconic and thus copied car. Less than 1000 original Ford AC Cobras were
built by Carroll Shelby. Tens of Thousands of copies of the original 289
and 427 AC Cobras exist with most of them being "kit cars" copies. In this
exclusive TFLcar video we visit Superformace in Southern California to
learn why the Shelby Cobra is such an iconic race car and automobile.
Superformance along with Carroll Shelby's own Shelby Automobiles, Inc build
what many call "Continuation Cars". These are brand new Shelby Cobra
roadsters and coupes that have official Shebly CSX serial numbers. They are
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.

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.

2.4L engine in the Omni, Showing off the exhaust
Finally got the Exhaust system hooked
up to the engine. Can't even hear the engine running up in the engine bay,
nothing but the hiss of the AIS up there. But out back we get a nice rumble
from the 2.5" system. Nothing but a high flow 3" cat, and small 2.5"
