Roadster
Chassis #: CSX 3283
Sold for $1,457,500 at 2018 Gooding & Co. : Amelia Island.
This Cobra is one of 260 coil-spring Cobras built in period. It originally featured a 428 CID engine, standard fender flares, Sunburst wheels, a competition oil-cooler mouth, no hood scoop, and a paint finish in green over a black interior. It was dispatched from England on July 9th of 1966 and shipped to Carroll Shelby's Los Angeles performance shop to be equipped with several upgrades that would transform it into a Cobra.

This Cobra was sold in September 1966 to Hi-Performance Motors in Los Angeles. Two months later, it was acquired by William Huber of Bellflower, who traded in a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette 427. Mr. Huber quickly began outfitting the car with upgraded competition equipment.

In April of 1967, a 427 CID V-8 engine was installed by tuners Holman Moody. A month later, Huber purchased racing tires from Parnelli Jones Firestone and, in July, he sourced performance tube headers from the Jardine Header Company. In September of 1968, it was fitted with Halibrand magnesium wheels from Carroll Shelby Enterprises.

It is believed that Mr. Huber never entered any formal racing events with the Cobra, though he did drive it in local tours staged by the Foreign Car Club of America.

In 1970, it was placed into storage, having accrued modest mileage. When Mr. Huber offered the car about a decade later, it was advertised as having 22,000 miles on the odometer. In 1981, it was purchased by Jon Stockholm of San Diego, and within two years it passed to Keith Harvie of Los Angeles. It remained with Mr. Harvie for six years before selling it around 1989 to Miles d'Arcy-Irvine of Salisbury, UK.

Mr. D'Arcy-Irvine commissioned a sympathetic restoration including a full refurbishment of the cylinder heads with new stainless steel valves, springs, bearings, rings, and gaskets. Another mechanical refurbishments were also made, including to the suspension, brakes, and exhaust system.

In December of 1996, the car was re-acquired by Mr. Harvie, with the odometer displaying 29,415 miles. It remained with Mr. Harvie in Southern California until at least 2012.

While in the care of the current owner, the Cobra was treated to a full restoration. A new 427 CID block was sourced and the engine was built using components from the Holman Moody engine. All mechanical and chassis systems were rebuilt. The car was refreshed in the original color scheme, and the cockpit was re-trimmed with black leather and carpets. It was given a bare-metal repaint in the original shade of green.

Currently, this Cobra 427 has 29,534 miles on its odometer.
