AC Cobra COB 6008 -- A Racing Cobra.m4v
COB 6008 -- The early years:
The history of each of the 453 '289' Shelby-AC Cobras built by AC Cars
during 1963 and 1964 has been thoroughly researched by the Shelby American
Automobile Club and the results are published in its authoritative World
Registry. Few examples have such detailed records as COB 6008, whose first
owner can provide information dating back to the day he collected it from
the factory. His new sports car proved effective on both road and track,
back in the days when it was normal to drive to the race and home
afterwards. To underline the performance potential of the AC Cobra, Bruce
recalls the time he left London at 3.15 a.m. one summer morning and set his
stopwatch as he left Hyde Park Corner, heading to the A1 for the 220 mile
drive north. His elapsed time for the journey was 2 hours 18 minutes, in a
time when the whole length of the A1 was single carriageway.
Reports of some of the Cobras first competitive events can be discovered in
the automotive press of the time. On 6th September 1964, Bruce Ropner
entered the Capston 4-Hour relay race at Croft and on 29th September it
competed in a drag race at RAF Church Fenton where it won its class. Ropner
often shared the car with Keith Schellenberg who during 1965, purchased
6008 and continued to compete at Croft during that season with some
success. He then shipped the car to Africa to take part in the Angolan
Grand Prix in November 1965.
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.
