1965 Superformance MKIII Ride-Along and Drive-By
OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
In 1962, chicken farmer, Army Air Corps pilot, 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, car constructor, and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby embarked on a venture that combined the lightweight body of the AC Ace with Ford's 260 cubic-inch V8 engine. This fusion of lightweight British engineering and American power took place at Los Angeles-based Shelby-American Inc. to become the legendary Shelby Cobra. Pursuing greater power and racing homologation, Shelby upgraded to Ford's 427 cubic-inch engine in 1965, giving birth to the Shelby 427 Cobra. Only 260 original road-going Shelby 427 Cobras were built over a two-year period, making them some of the most highly sought-after and frequently replicated cars of all time. While many Cobra replicas are unauthorized copies, the MKIII from Superformance is not only exacting in its detail but is the only Cobra replica built under license from Carroll Shelby Licensing Inc.
