1999 Shelby Cobra Phase 3 at the Pismo Classic

A few months later, but finishing up a few posts I started earlier this year. :-)

Another one of the great cars at the 22nd Annual Pismo Classic car show in Pismo Beach, California this week was this 1999 Shelby Cobra Phase III built by Carroll Shelby. There were a number of Shelby Cobras at the show, ranging from ones that were built at the plant in Las Vegas to ones that were owner assembled.

This particular car was #140 of the 150 that were buily by Shelby and a short term partner. Here are the details and pictures of that car:

This Cobra was produced at the Las Vegas Shelby plan in July, 1999. Carroll Shelby and a short term partner built 150 of these "phase 3" models. This is #140. Very shortly after their join venture together, Carroll Shelby dissolved their partnership. Shelby continued building the Cobra "his" way.
