LMC is very proud to offer for sale this re-creation of the 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX 3002.

  Mike Shoen is one of the most famous Cobra historians and the first to recognize the importance of the cars. He had begun purchasing original Cobras in the late ‘60s into the ‘70s and purchased the famous CSX 2299 Daytona Coupe directly from Shelby himself. Shoen was the first major Cobra collector; he found and owned only the most important Cobras including the first Cobra race car, the only unrestored FIA roadster, a four-time winner, the Cobra team Bartoletti transporter, an original Cobra team trailer and three original Daytona Coupes, all at one time – including the Le Mans winner! Shoen later owned the original of CSX 3002.

  CSX 3002 was one of the most significant Cobra’s ever built as it was the first production 427 Cobra and the only 427 factory team car – raced by top drivers Ken Miles, Bob Bondurant and Phil Hill.

  In 1997, Mike Shoen lent his original CSX 3002 to Hi Tech and allowed them to copy it for another customer. Hi Tech’s goal was to create an exacting replica utilizing an identical steel frame, aluminum body and correct components. Early 427 Cobras reflected the transition between the 289 cars and the later 427 cars. Because it was the first 427, CSX 3002 had many differences from later 427 Competition Cobras. These differences included forward facing roll bar, 289 nose opening, rectangular oil cooler nose opening, widened 289 FIA rear fenders, 8 ½ and 6 ½ wheels, baffled fiberglass cold air scoop, racing windscreen, 289 dashboard, fiberglass racing seat and a unique assortment of dash instruments including duplicate oil temperature gauges. This replica incorporates all these features.

  The powerplant is the correct 427ci Side Oiler with Aluminum heads (painted black), Le Mans rods, solid lifter cam and aluminum water pump to produce approximately 550hp. This is paired to an original-type toploader 4-speed manual transmission and 3.54 differential. Spares include: straight-through exhaust, fiberglass passenger seat and twin water radiator fans for the street.

  As original competition Cobras soar in value and are seldom sold, an exact replica like this is the next best thing.
