The car is a 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Stage III 289 Dragonsnake originally built by Shelby for drag racing, and it was part of the Steven Juliano estate sale held by Mecum in 2019. What makes this one so special? Bearing chassis number 5R002, this is the same car raced by Ken Miles at Green Valley Raceway in Smithfield, Texas, back in 1965.

I just think it’s cool that Demetri has always been this nerd and he’s never really compromised, [or considered] going to the dark side, even though he’s had many opportunities to join Cobra Kai, even though one resulted in him getting flipped and then another time getting his nose broken. 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Stage III 289 Dragonsnake - Photo credit: Mecum The Reimer brothers entered the car in multiple drag races in 1965, with Mike behind the wheel and Don managing the team.

It would undergo more paint jobs in its life until Juliano purchased the car in 2007. Juliano restored it to its original condition, and even consulted with original owner Mike Reimer to make the restoration as accurate as possible.
