This stunning, black on black original Shelby Cobra CSX20XX is one of the first Cobras built by Shelby American in 1962. It is equipped with the original 260 C. I. V8 engine, the original differential and the original aluminum case T10 Borg Warner four speed transmission. All the other components are either refurbished originals or NOS. Well over $100,000 was invested in the restoration.
This beautifully restored slab side Cobra is 100orrect, right down to the windshield squirter nozzles. During inspection, the only non-correct component we noted was the VIN tag, which was installed so that the car could be registered in Texas. It is a correct VIN tag, but for a later model slab side Cobra (built after CSX2125.)
The current owner of this 1962 Cobra has owned it since the 1970’s. The car was a bit dusty the day we took the pictures, but the black paint is stunning. It is an excellent, highly detailed restoration. Sometime during its life, it was painted red, but it was repainted the correct black color during the restoration.
This authentic Shelby Cobra can be purchased for $1,150,000 US. With Cobra values on the rise, this is an excellent investment.
