One of the most well regarded and legendary sports cars, the Shelby Cobra has a history and mystique few cars can hope to achieve. Conceived by Carroll Shelby, the Cobra was born from matching an AC Ace chassis with a small block (later big block) Ford V8. Shelby used the designation CSX2000 for the prototype Cobra, meaning CSX2001 was the first car available to the public. The 260 Cobra was introduced in 1962 featuring a 260 cu. in. engine, installed only in the first 75 cars produced. Of these 75 cars, only 62 were produced for the street. Once the 289 cu. in. engine was introduced, customers were given the option to replace the 260 engine with the more powerful 289, thus making original 260 cars (VIN: CSX2000 - CSX2075) a rarity in the market.
