Shelby & Cobra Nope! Up through 1967, Just Shelby GT-350 & 500. Period. Yes, they used "COBRA" Valve covers and had "Cobra" badging, but they were not formally called, titled, or named that. The "COBRA" name started with Ford's production in 1968 through 1969(1970). Fact. It's in the Shelby Regisrty.
