1965 AC Shelby Cobra 289 Adult Pique Polo Shirt
British specialist manufacturers AC Cars, after loosing their Bristol engine, received a letter from American automotive designer Carroll Shelby asking if they would build him a car modified to accept a V8 engine. AC agreed, provided a suitable engine could be found. Shelby went to Chevrolet to see if they would provide him with engines, but not wanting to add competition to the Corvette they refused. However, Carroll was a champion and he wasn’t going to give up without a fight. So he went to the next giant car automaker; Ford. Ford had a giant “hole” in their inventory of models; they had nothing that could compete against the Corvettes and they happened to have a brand new engine which could be used in this endeavor. In Los Angeles on 2 February 1962, AC, Carroll and his team built the first Cobra at Dean Moon's shop in Santa Fe Springs. Later the production moved to Venice Beach, one of the most iconic automobile of the 60s was born, and the rest is history!
