Comment on Carroll Shelby’s first Cobra to be offered at RM Sotheby’s auction by Gary Meyerhttps://news.classiccars.com/historic-first-shelby-cobra-offered-rm-sothebys-auction/#comment-4036 Sat, 23 Jul 2016 15:41:33 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=77884#comment-4036 Totally agree, this original Cobra needs to stay with the Shelby Heritage Center and continue to be viewed as is. A Shelby Heritage Center representative advised me in March 2016 that Carroll Shelby turned down a $26M offer for the car. Think of the history, 260 cid engine installed overnight by Carroll Shelby & Dean Moon themselves, original yellow paint by Dean Jeffries (also painted “Little Bastard” on James Dean 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder death car.) Other anecdotes too numerous to list. Priceless heritage.

An extremely interesting story; I has Scaglietti modernize the nose and added the fins that are described as “ahead of their time:.. Fortunately, the present owner was smart enough to recognize it’s place in History and has refurbished the car to its Original Carrera presence..

There’s NO way you ever got the combination stopped (or even slowed down) in any distance we’d find reasonable today…
