32: Shelby Cobra 289
Carroll Shelby has put his name on just about every piece of automotive performance history, and the Cobra 289 is no different. This iconic roadster is one of the most memorable cars of the sixties and with good reason. The design is not only iconic but you can’t go wrong with the performance either. The car handles corners like a dream and just about every roadster that came after it has tried to replicate this. The value on these original Cobras are through the roof, and iconic people such as Jay Leno own one.
When you look back on iconic muscle cars from this era then Cobra 289 just doesn’t get enough attention. The car was every possible thing that you’d expect in a sixties roadster, down to the rally-style wheels. A true classic if there was one from this era of muscle cars.
