Carroll Shelby Experimental #2242 is well documented in the Shelby American World Registry. Invoiced on February 27, 1964 to Fergus Ford of Skokie, Illinois, it was equipped with the Class A accessory package, which included chromed 5.5-inch wire wheels with "AC" knock-offs, a quick-fill fuel cap, dash-mounted rear-view mirror, wind wings, radio and antenna and chromed bumperettes.
After a lengthy stay on the showroom floor, the car eventually sold to a buyer from Texas in the mid-late sixties. In 1969 it was purchased from the first owner by Clark Van Norstrum of Greenwich, CT, who added four 2-barrel downdraft Weber carburetors, a roll bar and a hood scoop. Mr. Van Nostrum owned the car for 27 years until advertising it for sale in 1996 as a Red car with Black interior. Van Nostrum sold the Cobra to R. Leblanc of Los Gatos, CA who in turn sold it to the current owner in 2004.
CSX2242 is now fresh from a complete bare-metal restoration during which the hood scoop was removed and a dual 4-barrel manifold and carburetor refitted to return it to its original configuration. An example such as this is very rare and becoming extremely difficult to acquire as more and more disappear into private museums and collections. A classic beauty and a joy to drive, this well-documented no-stories 289 Cobra is ready to thrill and reward its next steward.

My girlfriend takes my 1965 (Factory Five MKIII replica) Shelby Cobra out for a drive.
Sorry about the sound in this video. I mounted the GoPro to the roll bar
but I think it was vibrating or something. She did pretty well driving the
Cobra... minus a couple grinds haha. The Cobra is a bit tempermental and
not really easy on you the first time you take her out. Proud of my girl...
both of them. I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor

Lot S122 1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro 427 450 HP Auto
Gary Holub is acknowledged as the most active and committed Yenko collector
ever, with forty-four Yenko machines either currently in his collection or
having passed through his ownership. This Daytona Yellow Yenko Camaro is one of the members of
that club. Originally sold from Yenko Chevrolet in 1969 and one of only 27
equipped with the 400 turbo Hydra-Matic,
the car had a successful career on the East Coast as a competitor in the
NHRA's SS/E Automatic class.
While it still wears the livery of its drag racing career, the car has
otherwise been restored to its original state. As its intended mission
would suggest, the car is equipped with few options. The Black interior
features standard bucket seats, an AM radio and tilt steering, while
dealer-installed items include the special console-mounted Hurst shifter,
below-dash gauges, Sun tach and Yenko badges.
Beyond its uniqueness as a Yenko car it has the distinction of being the
most thoroughly documented Super Camaro and the only one with all
its sale paperwork signed by the man himself, Don Yenko. That might never
have been known had it not been for a vigilant gentleman named Walter
Denorshek. A Yenko employee, Denorshek happened to notice a pile of old
papers thrown into a dumpster during a move to a new location. The
paperwork for this car was part of the materials rescued that day by Mr.
Denorshek, whom we can all thank for saving important documents crucial to
the Yenko legacy.

- 427/450 hp engine
- Automatic transmission (turbo-Hydramatic)
- AM radio
- Power steering
- Yenko Atlas Cast Aluminum wheels

Shelby Cobra - The Engine Sounds Wild
http://www.kitcarconnection.com - James Martell takes his Shelby Cobra
replica for a cruise.
I decided to post this video for all the viewers of my other video who
complained about the engine being drowned out by the music. They have a
point. The engine noise of a Cobra with the famous sidepipes is music
enough to a car enthusiast.
If you are looking to hear a the roar of the engine this is your video.
The car in the video was built in 2004 in Calgary, Alberta by Peter
Jacobsen using car a Mk2 Roadster kit from Factory Factory Racing. The car
is powered with a 302 crate engine from Western Motorsports in Calgary,
James Martell is the Publisher of KitCarConnection.com, a website devoted
