1965 Shelby Cobra 427
High bid of $285,000 at 2016 Mecum : Monterey. (did not sell)
Sold for $212,800 at 2019 Gooding & Company : Amelia Island.
The popularity of the Shelby 427 Cobra prompted Shelby to produce a line of 'continuation' Cobras during the 1990s and 2000s. CSX4000 cars utilized an improved original-type chassis with fiberglass, aluminum, or carbon fiber bodies, and were available as complete cars, 'rollers' sans power train, or a components cars. These new Shelby's were sold on a Manufacturers Statement of Origin and duly listed in the SAAC Cobra Registry.

This particular example is one of just two examples (the other being CSX4001R) built to 'R' competition specification. This example was sold new in 2004 to Bill Anderson's HRE Motorcars of Freeport, New York, and was completed there for customer David Ciardullo. It was given an aluminum-head 427 Ford V-8 engine built by Ernie Elliott of NASCAR fame. The car produced an estimated 700 horsepower and featured rare carbon fiber bodywork.

Mr. Ciardullo drove the car on the street and at Virginia International Raceway. The car entered the care of its current owner in 2016, who had driven it sparingly.
