YAK Car Pic of the Day

'65 AC Cobra 289

In honor of Carroll Shelby, father of the Cobra who passed away last week, here’s a 1965 AC Cobra 289roadster, which sold at auction in 2009 for $422,500. The car was basically a British AC Bristol with an American Ford 289 V-8 stuffed into the engine bay. Eventually the engines got bigger, and Shelby moved on to Mustangs and Dodges. The original is still my favorite.
