Super Coupe
Chassis Num: CSX 2287
 
There were only six of these iconic race cars ever created. They achieved many important victories thanks, in part, to their streamlined design, power, and reliability. They beat the legendary Ferrari GTOs to win the 1964 and 1965 World Championship of Makes. At Bonneville, this car set numerous speed records.

This Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe has chassis number CSX 2287. It set records at Bonneville on November 4th of 1965. It traveled 1931 miles in 12 hours and did-so at 150 miles per hour. It set a total of 23 World Stock Car Speed and Endurance Records. It even broke records that had been set in 1936 by the Bugatti Type 57G 'Tank'.
