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.

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.
- Daytona Yellow with Black interior
- 427/450 hp engine
- Automatic transmission (turbo-Hydramatic)
- AM radio
- Power steering
- Yenko Atlas Cast Aluminum wheels
- Power front disc brakes
- Extensive documentation
- Only Yenko with paperwork signed by Don Yenko
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

Shelby and his cars. As an avid fan, he owns a Shelby Cobra kit car that he
drives in his leisure time. In his spare time he attends car shows, works
on his website, and spends time with his family.
The video was filmed in Surrey BC Canada.

Lot S97 1950 Chevrolet Half Ton Pickup With Calliope
A calliope is a musical instrument that produces its sound by sending air
through a series of tuned whistles. Based on the train whistle invented for
early locomotives, the calliope was an entertainment fixture on 19th
century riverboats and in traveling circuses, which often advertised their
arrival by parading a brightly decorated horse-drawn wagon through town,
its instrument playing a blaring tune that could often be heard for miles.
Patented in 1855, the calliope was originally operated by a music-box-style
cylinder and later with a keyboard. Eventually it was also adapted to run
like a player piano using music rolls. In the early 1900s compressed air
began to replace steam as the instrument's power source.
The pickup truck replaced the circus' horse-drawn wagon with the advent of
the horseless carriage, and this 1950 Chevrolet half-ton is a delightful
reminder of the magical quaintness of those earlier times. A basic yet
colorful machine, the truck and its calliope have been completely restored
to typical period finery. Brilliant Fire Engine Red paint adorns both truck
and instrument, the latter topped with a glorious cropping of polished
brass stacks. Played automatically or with its keyboard, the calliope's
beautiful music calls the attention of all within earshot, which is quite a
distance, making it perfect for issuing a call to your event or for
entertaining in a parade.
- Restored Red 1/2 ton with real brass whistle Calliope
- Beautiful music calls the attention of all around
- Calliope plays automatically or by keyboard
- Trucks with a Circus Calliope were used for advertising in years past

Lot S123 1969 Olds 442 convertible
Oldsmobile built fewer than 3,000 442 convertibles in 1969, less than ten
percent of total production, so when a fabulously restored example such as
this appears on the market, collectors take notice. This beautiful 442
convertible has undergone a thorough frame-up restoration that has returned
it to "as new" condition.
The Saffron Yellow paint and exterior brightwork are all new, as is the
deluxe Black interior, which features bucket seats, center console, Rallye
tach and gauges, four-spoke Sport wheel, Hurst Dual-Gate shifter and
burled woodgrain trim, all sheltered with a new power top and glass rear
The rebuilt matching-numbers 400/325 V-8 occupies the highly detailed
engine compartment in front of a 400 turbo-Hydramatic transmission. All new heavy duty
suspension, W27 aluminum rear-end cover and Exhaust system inhabit the remarkably detailed
chassis, which rolls on brand new Super Stock wheels and Red Line radials.
Many thousands of dollars were spent on the restoration of this very worthy
automobile, which is accompanied by receipts, photos and all important
documentation, including the Protect-O-Plate and Oldsmobile information.
