Roadster
Chassis #: CSX2044
Engine #: 3011B-524
Sold for $924,000 at 2013 RM Auctions - Monterey.
This Cobra was built to the specifications to accept a 260 motor. By the time they were ready to install an engine, they were ready to start production with the 289 that would come to define the Cobra.

The original owner, Mr. Horn, took delivery on May 21st of 1963. It had a base price of $5,995 but with the extras and custom components, including the roll-over bar for $200, the price was $6,944.55. Other options included a set of five Goodyear 6.70x15 T4 tires, seat belts, shoulder harnesses, and impact reels. Other options were the convex mirrors and an interior anti-dazzle mirror. The additional side pipe was a no cost option, and he ordered a rear bumper and front grille guard to protect the ends. Luxury amenities included sun visors, wind wings, and a heater.

It is believed that the car was never raced. Mr. Horn did drive the car extensively, accumulating around 23,000 miles over the next six years. no modifications were done to the engine; the only change from factory stock were larger tail lamps from a contemporary Ford pickup and reflective red tape on the rear end.

In 1969 Mr. Horn knocked a muffler loose. It would go unfixed for the next 32 years. It would remain in naturally climate-controlled storage. It didn't move again until he sold it to the current owner in 2001.

Since returning to the road, the car has had a single correct repaint in the original color. It is currently equipped with an upgraded carburetor (the factory original remains with the car). Other than that, and new tires, nothing has changed.
