The Shelby Cobra is an American-engined British sports car produced intermittently since 1962.
Its origins stem from the AC Ace, built from 1953 to 1963 in England. When Bristol Cars ceased building the 6-cylinder engine that powered the Ace in 1961, AC's owner, Charles Hurlock, was approached by Carroll Shelby to use a Ford V8 in the Ace chassis, producing the AC Cobra in 1962. Production of the Ace ended the same year.
The AC Cobra came in small block and later big block configurations. It was Ford's engine that powered the winning Shelby Cobra 289 in the GT class at Le Mans in June 1964.
