50 years back, the 289 FIA Cobras were built with the 289 Ford as their base, but featured a number of modifications such as a new dash, widened front and rear fenders, cut-back doors, new dampers, racing wheels with pin-drive hub, oil cooler scoops and a racing-spec 289 small block engine. The CSX7000 Continuation Shelby Cobra 289 FIA is essentially a component vehicle that any customer or automotive professional can work on and fit a powertrain of his/her choice. The CSX7000 is specially built on orders and delivered with a Shelby issued MSO. Compared to the original car, the special edition models will retain most of the characteristic features including the body lines and suspension, but will be built in accordance with modern-day standards. These include a set of modern disc brakes, either aluminum or fiberglass bodies and a stronger frame. The limited editions also feature a special fitted car cover, detachable steering wheel, and an Ford V8 exhaust system. As far as the pricing goes, the limited edition FIA Cobra with a fiberglass body will cost $94,995, while the aluminum body model will cost $159,995.
