Description Shelby: 427 S/C Continuation Cobra S/C

CSX4133  427 Shelby Cobra



In the world of exalted, championship-winning, awe-inspiring sports cars, the Shelby Cobra requires no introduction. From its design and performance to its heritage and competition history, there's truly nothing like it. Few cars are as collectible as the snake that conquered the prancing horse in 1965. According to the Shelby American Automobile Club, only 311 of the "big block" Cobras were built from 1965-1967. In answer to the prayers of countless enthusiasts worldwide, Shelby Automobiles has been manufacturing continuation cars with 4000 and 6000 CSX serial numbers since 1995. Not to be confused with Cobra replicas, these are genuine Shelby Cobras, authenticated by Shelby Automobiles, Inc. with proper CSX numbers and a Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO), signed by Carroll Shelby himself. Only a small number are built each year and every car is listed in the official Shelby registry. While true to the cars built in the 1960's, improvements over the original include a stronger steel frame and better alloys utilized in the components, improved cooling and additional heat shielding, all of which renders these cars safer and more drivable, but with all the authentic Cobra character. Outfitted with the proper 427 side-oiler, these Cobras are capable of zero-to-sixty runs in under three seconds and 10-second quarter mile times. Performance figures on par with contemporary supercars.  CSX4133 is fully documented with a copy of the original MSO signed by Carroll Shelby himself. The fiberglass body is strikingly finished in exquisite black paint with ghost rookie strips a particularly rare color and one that complements this performance icon very well. It's all there, from distinctive Halibrand wheels to the classic wood-rimmed steering wheel, CSX4133 is fitted with every available factory option. Power is proven by a Shelby aluminum block 427cid side-oiler V8 motor, which sports medium-riser aluminum heads and a Shelby-style side-winder intake, producing an earth shattering 600hp on standard super unleaded pump gas. Given the strong sums commanded by 1960's era Shelby Cobras in today's market, CSX4133 offers an alternative that is at once eminently usable and fully authenticated by Carroll Shelby.

For Sale, Continuation 427 Shelby Cobra.  Custom ordered and delivered as a turnkey car with warranty by Shelby American Dealer "Nostalgia Motorcars Ltd." in SC. This is an early continuation car that was manufactured and fabricated by Shelby American Inc. in Las Vegas. Fabrication of frame, chassis, body and components were produced in Las Vegas.  During that time Shelby had contracted a team of approximately 12 inmates at Las Vegas Indian Springs Penitentiary to receive components and construct the rolling chassis, less drive train in the prison’s renowned restoration shop.  The restoration shops work was considered of exceptionalquality and makes for an interesting story.  Later continuation cars, approx. after CSX4200 were contracted out to Mexico and then South Africa to increase output capacity as the prison program could not keep up with demand. This car was ordered as a well optioned car and all documentation from original bill of sale, MSO signed by Carroll Shelby November 10th1999, build sheets, warranty document, delivery document, dealer sales package, general information, wiring diagram, owner history, historical USA Title are included.
