Is this a trick question?

Well, not to offend anyone, but I believe the only true Shelby Cobras were built in the 60's. Everything else is only a recreation of those cars built in the 60's.

I'm not offended. The truth never offends (well, maybe sometimes :-) Whichever way you care to look at it, 3360 was the last Shelby Cobra.

I may be wrong but I think this topic has been discussed here in the past?

Well......the point being the last original alum. car built in England and modified by Shelby in the sixties.
Seems to me that everything else is a "continuation car" by Shelby or a replica by anyone else. The only thing we're talkin about is perceived value...I'll take an original sixties version please.

Oh well, I can't afford one, Bill

I'm sure that we are all waiting with bated breath for "you know who" to tell us that they are still making REAL Shelby Cobras and shall continue to do so. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. Right, Evan?

boys boys... come on now. We all know you can benchmark your own personal favorite "last one" on any measure you like: real, authentic, genuine, original. Pick one and shaddap already.

No , this is not a trick question , and i did not know this subject had already been coverd , as i'm not here everyday.... Just to touch on a couple of points.

Now ,i indeed was looking for the History on the last "Original" 60's era Shelby American Cobra not the Continuations from Shelby /Superformance or any other makers.

When I said this has been covered before I was being ironic (sorry, it's the downside of email) as I was expecting the usual boring tirade from one or two folk. The production of AC Cobra and the Shelby Cobra began in 1962; the last Shelby Cobra was CSX 3360 and the last car from the AC factory was built in 1968 despite not using the 'Cobra' trade name, but can be considered part of the production run. All cars from both Shelby and AC since that time (i.e. not made in the 1960s) are later variations on the original theme and you can call them what you will: continuations, recreations, replicas, revivals, regurgitations....

You have a way with words, Trevor. But didn't you forget "hallucination?"

Thank you Mr. Ned. I also conveniently 'forgot' a few other words too! I'm still getting the water out of my brain - and camera. However, I do think we should officially adopt the word 'hallucination' as it so aptly covers a multitude of sins.....the 'Shelby Hallucination Cobra' - got a nice ring to it. Pure class....

(You managed to wring your cars out yet or are you cultivating mushrooms on the carpets?)

Got everything pretty well dried out, thanks. Next time I'm bringing a snorkel. At least your cameras are small - heck, a few minutes in the microwave should make them good as new!
