This one is for the Mustang lovers!
In an exciting development for classic car enthusiasts, The Cobra Experience museum is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win a 1968 Paxton Supercharged Shelby Cobra GT350 Convertible. This fundraising event is not just about winning an iconic car; it's a chance to contribute to the preservation and celebration of automotive history.
The 1968 Shelby Cobra GT350, regarded by many as the last true Mustang designed by Carroll Shelby himself, is an emblem of American muscle car heritage. The 1968 model year brought significant changes to the GT350, most notably its rebranding under the Cobra name. This Shelby Cobra GT350 stands out with its factory 302 cubic-inch V8 engine, adorned with an all-aluminum Cobra intake manifold, a Holley 600 cfm carburetor, and distinctive Cobra valve covers.
This particular car is a rare and highly sought-after convertible, one of only 404 produced. It features a 302ci V8 engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The addition of a period-correct Paxton Supercharger, installed by a previous owner, elevates the car's power significantly, boosting it from 250 bhp to an impressive 340 bhp.

Period Correct Paxton Supercharger, increasing horsepower from 250 to 340.
