History of the Shelby AC Cobra

Being one of the oldest manufacturers of cars and automobiles in Britain, AC has been known for some of the most iconic designs and models like the Shelby AC Cobra. This model is known for its style, power, speed, and performance. However, it is surprising to know that AC did not always produce muscle cars. In production since 1904, AC was founded by John Weller and first manufactured delivery vehicles known as the Autocarrier. This single cylinder 5.6hp engine soon have way to the iconic name Autocarriers Limited i.e. AC.

During the two World Wars as well as the Great Depression in 1929, AC suffered through dips in production and sales. However, the resilient carmaker succeeded in producing lightweight four wheelers like Aceca and the AC Ace. In 1961, AC began collaborating with Ford to bring about revolutionary changes in the current lineup of 4-wheelers. This collaboration led to the Shelby AC Cobra, known to be among the most brutal, quick, and power sports cars on road at its time.        

Since 1962, Shelby AC Cobra has been intermittently produced, with automakers releasing continued versions of the classic 1962 model. Apart from the classic make and design of AC Cobra, this automobile was also released as coupes like the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe in 1964 and the Willment / Ghia Coupe in 1965.
