This 1965 Shelby Cobra 289 is one of the cleaner, more minimalist examples of the more-famous-than-Elvis car that’s been a poster on every boy’s wall since 1962. The early Cobras resemble the AC Ace on which the car is based far more closely than the later year Shelbys, our American cousins can tend to get a little carried away when it comes to modifying cars to make them more powerful, much louder and less likely to impress Thatcher – which led to late-model Cobras becoming a little bit silly. Wonderful – but silly.
1965 was the final year that the MKII 289 cubic-inch Cobras were made, the 327 V8 was fitted to the new MKIII cars that began leaving Carroll Shelby’s world famous garage at the end of the year, so in some respects this car represents the last of the first Shelby Cobras.
