Yep, there are very few...

I thought there were 8 including one replica, but I'm not sure. I have to check my facts.

I know there are 6 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO's though

The car was originally yellow, but was repainted a lot for shows so it looked like there were more than one in existence. The first engine was 221 Ford V8, which ran the Cobra for the first time at in England in late 1961, at the MIRA test track by Derek Hurlock. The 221 was scrapped for a 260 fairlane V8, which made 250-260 hp in Shelby tune, with a Borg-Wagner T-10 four speed tranny. It has an aluminum body. Shortly after it was built in the States, the first journalist to drive it was John Christy for Sports car Graphic.
There is alot more, but needless to say, it was a success, with a few 260's, and lots of 289's and 427's made later.
Currently, the car is in original condition, completely. Thats why its worn a bit. It will still (in theory) pull of 5 second 0-60 blasts, but I wouldnt want to try it.

I heard in an interview with Shelby that the repaint for each show story wasn't true.

Anyway, nice pics. What mag did you scan them from?

Are those old photos actually of the same blue car in the new shots?

Yes, its the same car, the VERY FIRST SHELBY COBRA-EVER!
THis was from the september 1999 issue of Motor Trend.
In it, Carrol himself said they repainted it to make it look like there were more of them then there were (there was only one for awhile) In some of the old pics, the car is unpainted, in some it is probably yellow.
