Factory Five Type 65 Coupe in Progress
Seasick walk around the car in progress. This car is a replica of the
shelby daytona coupe of which 6 were built in 1964 and 1965. They were
built because the shelby cobra, although winning in the US wasn't
aerodynamic enough for european racetracks. I'm about a year into the build
now (at filming)

The Shelby Daytona Coupe was based on the AC Cobra roadster chassis and
drive-train. Just six Daytona original coupes were built between 1964 and
1965. The chassis number of this Shelby is CSX 2300. This was the only time
that a Cobra Daytona Coupe was painted with a white body finish with blue
and red stripes. Chassis CSX 2300 was leased from Alan Mann by Ford of
France for this race only. It competed in the national "Tri-Colore" of
France. Well known French drivers Andre Simon and Jo Schlesser drove this
coupe at the very tough Nurburgring course. The car finished 3rd in the GT
III category, and 12th overall. After the race, this white coupe was
returned to Alan Mann Racing in England where it was repainted in the
official Guardsman Blue metallic and white stripe of the 1965 Shelby
American team. Carroll Shelby himself owned this Daytona before it was sold
by RM Auctions for $4.4 million on August 19, 2000

2014 Le Mans Classic Parade Laps Superformance Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe in car
2014: the 50th anniversary of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe beating the
Ferraris to win the GT class at the Le Mans 24hrs (with Bob Bondurant and
Dan Gurney driving). So it was very special to be there on track in its
modern counterpart designed by the same Peter Brock - a truly great event.
Here's a couple of parade laps at Le Mans Classic on Saturday morning 5th
July 2014 with Travel Destinations around 10.30 to 11am.
The circuit was very wet and congested, so whilst there was no possibility
of driving fast or on the ideal line, the occasion was fantastic -
particularly accompanied by that sound.
You can also enjoy seeing a huge variety of cars on track: Alpine, Aston
Martin, MG, Porsche, Datsun, Bentley, Triumph, Ferrari, TVR, Lotus, etc.
Cheesey driving gloves FTW!
Victor Gets a Ride in the Coupe
We get a lot of visits here at Factory Five Racing. Victor came all the
way from Puerto Rico and after going for a tour, he got a ride in the Type
65 Coupe from FFR President Dave Smith.
