Lot S96 1964 Shelby Cobra 289

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. Highlights: - Documented in Shelby American World Registry - Four owners since new - "Class A" Accessory Package - Chromed 5.5-inch wire wheels with "AC" knock-offs - Quick-fill fuel cap - Dash-mounted rear-view mirror - Wind wings - Radio and antenna - Chromed bumperettes - Modified by first owner: four 2 barrel Webers, roll bar, & hood scoop - Returned to original configuration during recent bare-aluminum restoration

133089 / 1965 Shelby Superformance Cobra
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d946gq7 If you're one of the many enthusiasts who's been longing for the perfect combination of OEM reliability and classic good looks, it's time to stop wishing and start dialing! As the only Shelby licensed replica of the original 1965 Cobra, this roadster's virtually flawless Superformance MK III body utilizes high quality, hand laminated fiberglass to create a rock solid drop top that provides a first-rate driving experience. The car's stiffly reinforced body panels feature the smooth surfaces and typically tight panel gaps we've come to expect from top tier Cobra replicas; and its excellent fit and finish is a testament to Superformance's OEM-quality materials and talented technicians. Not many customs strike a perfect balance of outrageous looks, serious performance and excellent attention to detail. But this Cobra's combination of contemporary build techniques, timeless Indigo Blue paint and traditional white racing stripes creates an irresistible curve carver that'll keep onlookers marveling for hours on end! An eyeball popping presence is only part of this slick MK III Cobra's excellent appeal; it also does a very good job of going fast and making a lot of noise! Looking completely natural between the car's body-matched fenders and fully finished firewall is a state of the art DOHC Ford Motorsport 5.0 liter 'mod motor' that's rated at pavement scorching 412 horsepower and a hefty 390 lb./ft. of torque. Officially named the Coyote motor, and officially found in the engine bay of the 2012 Mustang GT, this aluminum rocket utilizes redesigned cylinder heads, 32 light weight valves, variable valve timing, a long runner single scroll intake, a direct mount throttle body, a forged steel crank, forged steel connecting rods and oil-cooled hypereutectic pistons to create a stout 11 to 1 compression ratio and a 7,000 RPM redline. At the top of the engine, a Ford throttle body mixes wind from a polished BBK air induction system with dino juice from a Ford electronic fuel injection system. At the sides of the engine, breathing is optimized by ceramic coated Superformance headers. And at the front of the engine, cooling is supplied by an aluminum single-core high performance radiator which is equipped with dual electric fans and a stainless steel surge tank. One of the best things about buying any high quality replica is the modern hardware underneath. Fully sorted and completely detailed, this brand new Cobra's Superformance heavy wall Jig welded frame and fully independent suspension are ready to take on the toughest track you can find! Behind the car's slick Ford engine, a Quick Time bellhousing frames a durable Tremec TKO600 5-speed transmission which utilizes a McLeod clutch and a hydraulic throw-out bearing to spin a race-quality limited slip differential and stout 3.45 gears. At the corners of the car, vented Wilwood power four-wheel disc brakes combine with premium custom crafted coil over shocks to provide better stopping and increased grip. And power flows to the ground through 15 inch pin drive Halibrand style wheels which wear reliable 255/60 front and 295/50 rear Goodyear Eagle GTII performance radials. Cobra interiors have always been simple, and even though this car ratchets its appeal up with a few custom touches, its purist nature still shines like a fresh coat of wax on its bright blue fenders. The black German specification leather seats are firm, look as good as new and feature original style latch-lock seatbelts for increased safety. In front of those seats, the blue and white topped dash, which is covered in straight and tight vinyl trim, holds a full assortment of Smiths and Lucas gauges between a chrome Superformance rearview mirror, an optional Superformance locking glove box and switches for a standard issue heater/defroster. At the bottom of the seats new black carpet, which is protected by color-keyed Superformance floor mats, frames original-style foot pedals, a polished emergency brake handle and an original-style T-bar shifter. And in front of the driver, an optional leather wrapped steering wheel is capped by a Superformance horn button. If you've been patiently waiting for a top notch Cobra replica that combines classic style with some of the best technology on the planet, this is your car!
