Auction Block: 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra

Nov 9, 2018

Category: Rides

Carroll Shelby redefined blazing speed with the Shelby 289 Cobra, leading it to be one of the most powerful sports cars of the ‘60s. Coming straight from the famous Petersen Automotive Museum, this immaculate 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra is a complete knockout waiting for a worthy driver to take the wheel.

This particular Cobra was modified for Solo I competition but it was restored to original specifications back in the late ‘80s and now looks like it did when it originally left the Shelby facility. The beautiful vehicle has a pristine white paint job, contrasting perfectly with the red leather interior for a minty fresh vibe. It also has a gorgeous wood-rimmed steering wheel, Stewart Warner instrumentation, bucket seats, and a dash-mounted rearview mirror. Although it’s a replacement, it does have an original 289-cubic inch K-code engine fitted with a stock exhaust. It retains its original doors, hood latch, trunk latch, and Borg Warner T-10 aluminum four-speed manual transmission. This stunning Shelby is ready to cruise.
