    This original 1st prototype has no race history but did allow Shelby and his team to verify Fords 289 small block would work in it. I’ve seen a black and white photo of this car on the city streets in Hawthorne near the airport when it was in development. A very important car in the history of the Cobra linage. Worth a small fortune, I would guess among the top ten most expense “American” made cars in history surpassed only by a few FIA Cobra’s with race history and the original 6 Cobra Daytona’s.
