By the end of the 1963 season, Shelby American realized the need for a more aerodynamic version of the 289 Cobra roadster to keep up with the sleek Ferrari 250 GTO. Peter Brock was busy designing this new coupe body and assuring everyone at Shelby American this was the best design. He was, in fact, quite correct as the end result was the first and only American built FIA GT World Champion.
CSX 2299 was the second coupe built, the first to wear Italian coachwork and carries the best race history of the six coupes built. It competed in a total of ten FIA events in 1964 & 1965. It scored a debut class win during the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans. Two months later Dan Gurney piloted the car to a GT win at Goodwood. Early in 1965, victories at the Daytona 2000 km and Sebring 12 Hours were also added to the car's history.
