    Sue for what? He ripped off AC for the body, they ripped off a guy who built a one off sports car, and he ripped off the Ferrari Barchetta. So the guys who build Cobras, are building a ripoff of a ripoff of a ripoff of a ripoff of a Ferrari.

    Since Shelby did not invent the body, chassis, engine, or anything else but the name I don't see what he created.

    I do appreciate the cars he built but if there was ever a big fat blowhard who loved to scam the public and claim other people's accomplishments as his own, it was Shelby.

    Kellisons doesn't come up for sale that often, so I hope with this post there is someone that knows of a Kellison J-6 Panther that is for sale. I'm looking for a J-6 that I can use on the road here in The Netherlands, therefore a drag/hotrod type of car unfortunately doesn't do the trick. The best I could wish for is a unmolested J-6 with a chassis/motor/drivetrain of a Corvette. In that way it will be much easier to get it road-registered in the Netherlands. You can email me at
    best regards,

    This one still pops up on Craigslist, don't think they ever sold it.

    I missed a later model one sitting in an impound lot . I’m sure it was 440 powered .
