The Shelby 427 Cobra became a new car designed in cooperation with Ford in Detroit. A new chassis was built using 4" main chassis tubes and coil spring suspension all around. The new car also had wide fenders and a larger radiator opening. It was powered by the "side oiler" Ford 427 engine (7.0 L) rated at 425 bhp, which provided a top speed of 164 mph in the standard model and 485 bhp with a top speed of 185 mph in the competition model. Cobra Mark III production began on 1 January 1965; two prototypes had been sent to the United States in October 1964. Cars were sent to the US as unpainted rolling chassis, and they were finished in Shelby's workshop. To save cost, most AC Cobra 427s were actually fitted with Ford's 428 in engine, a lower cost engine, intended for road use rather than racing. It seems that a total of 300 Mark III cars were sent to Shelby in the USA during the years 1965 and 1966, including the competition version and 27 AC 289, that were sold in Europe.
