In a thrilling announcement for car enthusiasts and philanthropists alike, the Cobra Experience Museum presents a unique opportunity to win a 1968 Paxton Supercharged Shelby Cobra GT350 Convertible. This iconic American muscle car not only embodies the spirit of innovation and performance but also marks the last of the Mustangs designed under the legendary Carroll Shelby's direct influence.

The 1968 model year introduced the Shelby Cobra GT350, a name that signaled significant enhancements to this already formidable vehicle. At the heart of these changes was a factory-installed 302 cubic-inch V8 engine, adorned with an all-aluminum Cobra intake manifold, a Holley 600 cfm carburetor, and signature Cobra valve covers. This powertrain setup ensured that the GT350 was not just a feast for the eyes but a formidable force on the road.

This particular Shelby Cobra GT350 Convertible stands out even among its rare breed, being one of only 404 convertibles produced that year. Its distinction is further amplified by a period-correct Paxton Supercharger, a modification that boosts the car's horsepower from 250 to an impressive 340 bhp. The car's original Highland Green paint and Saddle Decore Bucket Seats preserve its authentic charm, while its 4-speed manual transmission and 3.89 standard axle ratio promise an exhilarating driving experience.

The car comes with comprehensive documentation, including original Shelby VIN door and Buck tags, an invoice, and a detailed ownership history registered in the SAAC Registry, ensuring its provenance. A Marti Report is also included, adding to its collectible value.

By entering to win this remarkable piece of automotive history, participants will support the Cobra Experience’s mission to educate and inspire future generations about Carroll Shelby's legacy and the significance of these iconic vehicles. This 501(c)(3) non-profit museum, based in Martinez, California, relies on volunteer support and donations to continue its work in preserving and showcasing Shelby American's contributions to the automotive world.

This giveaway offers a rare chance to own a significant part of muscle car history while contributing to an organization dedicated to keeping the spirit of innovation and performance alive. Car enthusiasts and supporters of automotive heritage are encouraged to enter and possibly drive away with this magnificent 1968 Paxton Supercharged Shelby Cobra GT350 Convertible.
