Sold for $1,375,000 at 2016 RM Sotheby's : Monterey.
This Cobra, chassis number CSX 3178, was shipped to Shelby American in Los Angeles in Grey Primer with a black interior and a 428-cubic inch V-8 in late 1965. On January 7th, a work order for the car was opened and closed two months later before the car was billed to Horn-Williams Ford in Texas. The only known owner of the car is Carroll Shelby, in whose care it remained his entire life.

The 428 cubic-inch V8 engine is fitted with dual four-barrel carburetors offers 385 horsepower. There is a three-speed Ford C-6 automatic transmission and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Its wheelbase measures 90-inches.

By 1972, Shelby commissioned a restoration and was finished in Guardsman Blue with a gold stripe around the nose. A custom roll bar was also installed at that time.

A more recent restoration was carried out in-house by the Shelby team in the early 2000s. During the restoration, the car was assembled with a single four-barrel carburetor as opposed to the dual four-barrels previously on the car. The interior was reupholstered and the car was refinished in bright red. Although the purpose of the restoration was to retain as much of the original equipment as possible, the rollbar was retained, as were the Kelsey-Hayes Sunburst-style wheels.

After the restoration work was completed, the car was put on display at Shelby's headquarters, primarily in Las Vegas.
