Shelby American created an icon in 1962 when they built five FIA Cobra Roadsters. A rich racing history followed with legendary drivers such as Ken Miles, Bob Bondurant, Phil Hill, and Dan Gurney among others behind the wheel. Running alongside the Daytona Coupes in the 1965 World Manufacturers Championship, Shelby’s cars made their way into the U.S. and European winner's circles.

Licensed by Shelby American, built by Superformance, and titled as a 1964 replica Shelby Cobra, this 50th Anniversary Shelby 289 FIA Cobra Roadster (CSX7962) is just one of 50 built. 3K-miles later, it is now the grand prize in an awesome raffle.

Finished in a stunning Viking Blue with white roundels and a yellow team stripe, this Shelby features painted and polished 15-inch Halibrand pin-drive replica wheels with stainless steel spinners. The cockpit is complete with black vinyl upholstery, a 15-inch Moto-Lita hardwood-rimmed steering wheel, and a dashboard that has been signed by Allen Grant, Bob Bondurant, and Pete Brock. Other highlights include Stewart Warner gauges and original-style AC pedals.

Under the hood is a 302-cid V8 engine, bored and stroked to 363-cid and topped with four Weber carburetors and velocity stacks. Modifications such as aluminum heads, a hydraulic roller camshaft, "R" valve covers, ceramic-coated headers and side pipes all come together for a blistering 500-horsepower.
