  • Shelby Cobra 427 is up for sale

    It's amazing what you can do if you just think outside the box a little bit. That's what Carroll Shelby did when used a hefty dose of American ingenuity to transform a little British roadster called the AC Bristol into the Shelby Cobra. By ingenuity, of course, we mean a massive V-8 engine. Pairing an oversized mill with the small AC Bristol created a legendary sports car and racing machine. Today, an original Shelby Cobra fetches a handsome sum. One of the most valuable versions of the compact muscle machine is the 427 S/C, or Semi-Competition.
