How many Ford Cobras were made?

I am determined to find an original Ford Cobra at a car auction one day. How many Ford Cobras were made?

While plenty of replicas exist, just under 1,000 original Ford Cobras were made.
The production years for the initial Ford Cobra generation spanned 1961 to 1968, which amounts to just several hundred Ford Cobras produced each year, according to Hemmings.
Known also as the Shelby Cobra or the AC Cobra—and not to be confused with the Mustang Cobra—the Ford Cobra was introduced as a competitor to the Corvette designed by the legendary race car driver and vehicle designer Carroll Shelby. It was a charming two-seat sports car with a V8 engine, and it was sold in both North America and Europe during its production years.
While so few of the real deal was actually produced, it certainly inspired plenty of reproductions and look-alikes, dubbed “Continuation Cars,” with some being better than others.
But with so few of the real deal out there, an original Ford Cobra would be pretty challenging to find. That said, keep an eye out for them—they sometimes generate headlines when they’re listed for auction online!
