Description A.C. Cars, Ltd., was a British automaker whose heritage descended from 1908. In 1954 they introduced the Ace, a new tube-frame sports car with all-independent suspension. the engines were outsourced from Bristol and Ford of England. Carroll Shelby, a chicken farmer turned racing driver, approached A.C. about putting American V8s into the Ace chassis. Shelby had initially been interested in Chevrolet's small block engine, but General Motors turned him down. In 1961 Shelby learned of Ford's new small block V8, slated for introduction in the 1962 intermediate Fairlane model. Ford was more than eager to do business with Shelby.The first 75 Cobras, a name that reportedly came to Shelby in a dream, were built with 260 cubic inch high-performance Ford engines. The later cars used the 289 cubic inch unit with similar high performance upgrades. Rightfully regarded as one of the all-time great classic sports cars, the Shelby Cobra remains one of the most iconic and collectable cars ever made.
