The Shelby Cobra 289 V8 is a favorite amongst car enthusiast, and this ultra-rare Cobra is up for sale. A second-generation Mark II model with a long racing history, this Cobra dominated the SCCA United States Road Racing Championship losing only once in three years.

The car took first in class at the 1967 SCCA Nationals and beat legend Mark Donahue’s track record by a full second. The car spent time in several collections over the years and has had a meticulous restoration and doesn’t know the word quit, having raced in numerous vintage events up until now. Looking a new owner, this Cobra is ready for the track — not the showroom. Take a closer look at the photos below:
