Carroll Shelby had built a dual supercharged 427 Cobra (CSX3015) in 1967, which he pulled from one of the 19 MKIII Competitions.
The AC Cobra was a financial failure that led Shelby to discontinue importing cars from England in 1967. AC kept producing the coil spring AC Roadster with narrow fenders and a small bock Ford 289 and called the car the AC 289. The AC 289 ended in 1969, but the AC 428 lasted through 1973. By 1984, however, AC shut their doors and sold the AC name to a Scottish company.
Carroll Shelby had built a dual supercharged 427 Cobra (CSX3015) in 1967, which he pulled from one of the 19 MKIII Competitions. The Cobra was renamed "Super Snake" and in 1968, Road & Track referred to it as "The Cobra to End All Cobras."
A second Super Snake (CSX3303) was made for Shelby's friend Bill Cosby, who sold it saying it was too fast. The next owner ended up losing control of the vehicle and landing in the pacific ocean.
