Description

Lot #1246.2 - The Shelby Cobra is arguably one of the most famous and recognizable sports cars today. Today's CSX 4000 series 427 S/C component vehicles from Shelby Automobiles Inc. are everything the 1965 models were and more. The authenticity of each vehicle is documented by Shelby CSX numbers and a manufacturers statement of origin (MSO) from Shelby American signed by Carroll Shelby himself. Improvements include a stronger steel frame and better alloys used in the components plus better cooling and additional heat shielding to make these cars safer and more drivable without losing any of their original character. With 0-60mph under 4 seconds and 12 second quarter mile performance, you'll know exactly what it's like to drive a true American legend. This car, CSX4986, carries a super rare 1960's vintage Ford 427 side oiler motor with medium riser Ford heads and a Shelby Side-Winder intake.
