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 S119 1968 Plymouth Hemi Road Runner 426 425 HP 4 Speed
Seldom does a collector-grade musclecar appear that is as original as this
incredible 1968 Hemi Road Runner Hemi four speed. With a scant 14,900 miles
on the odometer, it retains its original sheet metal, glass, interior and
Electric Blue paint. The Road Runner Décor Group adds a steering wheel
with partial horn ring, center pillar bright molding trim and a rear panel
appliqué. From the exterior finish through the Spartan interior to the
mighty 425 horsepower dual-quad Hemi,
this rare bird's condition is as one would expect in a car with barely more
than a year's average mileage.
One of only 108 four-speed hardtops built in 1968, this significant car
comes with the original sales contract, Certi-Card, fender tags and Galen
Govier documentation. A museum or collector looking for a first-class
original example of Plymouth's most important musclecar creation would be
hard pressed to find a better one than this.

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

Classics Revealed: The Shelby Cobra
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Shelby Cobra is perhaps the World's most
iconic and thus copied car. Less than 1000 original Ford AC Cobras were
built by Carroll Shelby. Tens of Thousands of copies of the original 289
and 427 AC Cobras exist with most of them being "kit cars" copies. In this
exclusive TFLcar video we visit Superformace in Southern California to
learn why the Shelby Cobra is such an iconic race car and automobile.
Superformance along with Carroll Shelby's own Shelby Automobiles, Inc build
what many call "Continuation Cars". These are brand new Shelby Cobra
roadsters and coupes that have official Shebly CSX serial numbers. They are
of course not the original series of Shelby Cobra cars which now demand
hundreds of thousands of dollars by collectors when they do come up for
sale , but they are also not copies. They are simply new Shelby Cobras
built as a continuation of the original series of cars. In other words,
these are new Shelby Cobras. If you are a fan of Carroll Shelby and his
cars you'll like this video as we get deep into the history of what many
believe is America's most beautiful and iconic race car.
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
