THIS CAR MATTERS: 1964 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe

In this short video, Peter Brock talks about the aerodynamic advantages of the 1964 Cobra Daytona Coupe.

Back in the days when innovation didn’t involve computers and wind tunnels. “Let’s try this and see if it works.”

It did.

If you are interested in the early history and the development of the Cobra, check out Shelby American Up Close and Behind the Scenes, 1962–1965, The Venice Years.

Thanks, Tom.

Mikael Trane is the photographer and he’s also the patron on this project. It’s been a labor of love for him for almost ten years! The cars were actually built at Bastian Ebener’s shop in Germany
