[zfp_photo id=’h2d1dd556′]

It was so cool to see such a rare car @ Barrett Jackson. The only original surviving Shelby Factory Team King Cobra authenticated by Carroll Shelby and SAAC, Chassis No. CM/3/63 retains most of its original components. Powered by a 289cid OHV V8 with four Weber carburetors and 400hp at 7,000rpm. It also features a 5-speed manual transaxle, 4-wheel disc brakes and 4-wheel independent suspension with coil springs over tubular shock absorbers. All that history and awesomeness comes at a price though, $1.65MM to be exact.
