This authentic 1963 Shelby Cobra CSX2000 lived in a temperature and humidity controlled environment for more than 45 years. It was driven sparingly near its home in Hawaii. With less than 17,000 miles on the odometer, which are believed to be original, this has to be one of the most well preserved Shelby Cobras on the planet.
Unlike many of the Shelby street cars from the 60's, this one is virtually unchanged, it has never been modified for the track. Shelby CSX2081 features the original factory installed 289 c. i. powertrain, including the engine, transmission and differential. The only updates under the hood have been the replacement of the Harrison radiator with a quality replica, and a generator upgrade with an alternator to keep the battery charged while idling (this was a necessity to power the electric fans). The original generator and radiator are available upon request.
The fenders, door panels, deck lid, hood, etc. have never been modified at any time in the car’s life. The chrome spoke wheels were added in the late 60’s, but the original painted wheels and tires are included in the sale. With the exception of one respray and some recent small dent removal, you're looking at the original car Shelby made! Even the original windscreen is still in place! The tonneau cover, convertible top, side curtains, bows, jack, tool kit, grease gun, etc. go with the car.
This is a very rare opportunity to own a fully documented, original 289 c. i. Shelby Cobra! The car is located in the Los Angeles, CA area and available for a pre-purchase inspection, with some advance notice.
