Carroll Shelby's idea of dropping American V8s into a British chassis created one of the most iconic sports cars of all time — the Shelby Cobra. The car proved itself on the race track, from road courses in the US and Europe, even besting Ferrari at Le Mans. But not all of Shelby's customers were interested in turns, and the Dragon Snake was developed especially for drag racing. Just eight Drag Snakes were made, and this 1965 model in British Racing Green is one of four built with the 289 cubic inch small-block Ford V8. The car came from the factory with shorter rear gearing, Koni shocks, and a rear-exit exhaust that could be capped off for race use. The car has a long racing history in autocross and hill climbs and not the drag strip — making it one of the rarest Cobras ever made.
