Shelby 50th Anniversary FIA Cobra

We finally caught up to the CSX7000 Shelby 289 FIA Cobra at Barrett-Jackson, the Continuation Cobra that will be limited to 50 examples, each starting at $94,995 as a fiberglass rolling chassis. It celebrates the 50-year birthday of the Shelby 289 FIA Cobra and some of its legendary drivers with names like Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant and Phil Hill.

An aluminum or fiberglass body painted Viking Blue with FIA stripes just barely wraps itself over original-style pin-drive-hub wheels and Goodyear Eagle tires, cupping an all-black interior with a single roll hoop behind the driver.

The 2,100-pound weight is apparently for the aluminum-bodied car and that includes the weight of the small-block Ford engine the chassis is designed to take. But saving weight over the fiberglass version will also cost you more money, the metal body retailing for $159,995 as a rolling chassis. You can feast on the past and the present in the high-res gallery of photos above.
