No, that's wrong. At least by CA law.

The 1960's Cobras were sold as completed cars from dealers lots with engines, transmissions, clutches, headers already installed, etc., passed emissions and with warranties. Just like any other new Ford, Chevy or Chrysler, even today, license and registration were handled by the dealership and the new owner received their license plates and registration in the mail. No special legal exemptions necessary to have a 1960's Cobra comply with current (of the day) motor vehicle law.

I'd post some more articles by people who have not a clue about Carroll Shelby and the Shelby Cobra's history.
