That is a Dragon Snake. This was the King Cobra
Where is the King Cobra ?
For some reason some call this a King Cobra, not Shelby. This was a 427 car modified by its owner with Dragon Snake parts. Supposedly there was only one factory 427 Dragon Snake, CSX 3198. And yes Shelby built a King Cobra which is shown in Huggies post. Of course we're talking about Shelby, so anything is possible
Her is more information ... about the El Cid Cobra drag car
Martyn Schorr wrote a great book on Motion Performance, "Motion Performance: Tales of a Muscle Car Builder." One of the early performance shops to have a chassis dyno. The book has some good background on the Cobra and Clem Hoppe, its first owner who mysteriously vanished without a trace.
Clem refused to pay Shelby a license fee for the "King Cobra" label, so you figure it out!
I don't know about that, but he disappeared and to this day no one knows what happened to him. Probably bought a Prius.
And changed his name to Victor Chambers
