1965 Shelby 289 Cobra Alloy Continuation

If you’re a fan of the iconic Shelby Cobra (and who isn’t?), you’ll love this beautiful 1965 Shelby 289 Cobra Alloy Continuation.

This head turning vehicle sports an exterior that is finished off in stunning polished aluminum bodywork, but it also packs a mean punch. This Cobra sports a 427 cubic inch V8-engine pumping out 525 horsepower, and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Although it retains its classic styling, it has been upgraded to meet modern day demands. These updates include four-wheel independent suspension, tubular shock absorbers and four-wheel hydraulic brakes among others. The sports car was originally purchased new by Carroll Shelby for his personal collection, and was garage kept. This means you get yourself a 1965 model with only 56 original miles on the odometer. The vehicle hits the auction block on Saturday, November 15th, with an expected price tag ranging from $350,000 to $500,000. We wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up on the higher end of that spectrum.
