Dozens of rare Shelby Cobras and Mustangs, including the limited edition 50th anniversary commemorative Cobra 289 FIA, will be on display when LegacyTexas Bank in Plano hosts the fifth annual Shelby Car Show on Saturday, June 21st. Co-hosted by the Shelby Cobra Association of Texas, the annual event has grown to become one of the largest Shelby shows in the Southwest.
Aaron Shelby, LegacyTexas Bank Executive vice president, predicts this year’s show will be the best yet. “In addition to our friends from Shelby American joining us again this year, we will also have the very limited Cobra 289 FIA on hand,” said Shelby, grandson of the legendary auto design pioneer Carroll Shelby. “Both my family and the bank are very proud of this community event.”
The 289 FIA commemorates Shelby American’s 1964 introduction of the small block Cobra that dominated its class in many forms of racing worldwide throughout the 1960s. Only 50 limited edition continuation Cobra 289 FIAs are in production. Painted Viking Blue with Arctic White roundels, the anniversary model celebrates the Cobra that was one of the most important cars in American racing history and driven by some of the most revered drivers including Bondurant, Miles, Gurney and Hill.
The Shelby show will be held at the bank’s corporate headquarters at the intersection of Preston Road and Legacy Drive. In addition to the Shelby American models, the event will also feature rare and vintage cars from the private collection of the Shelby family, majority owners of LegacyTexas Bank.
