Description

Lot #5090 - CSX3169 was built on work order #18044 opened on 10/1/65 and finished 12/1/65. Upon completion, the car was delivered to Hayward Motors and sold on 12/13/65 to J.S. Toma. This car was brought back to Hayward in April of 1966 for warranty work. The next known owner was Kevin Nugent, who sold the car in 1976 to Bob Able with 27,000 miles. The car was then sold to Bill Contesin in 1987. After being out of the public eye for many years, CSX3169 was found close to original condition in 2012. The current owner commissioned a full, no-expense-spared, nut and bolt restoration in its factory correct original shade of Vineyard Green. Well-documented by the Shelby American Registry. Original drivetrain, unmodified body and original Sunburst wheels. An extremely rare chance to win a true factory-spec 427 Street Cobra. Restoration photo diary included with the car. **TITLED AS 1966**
