LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4000
The CSX4000 series Cobras are produced with Shelby American and are certainly the closest to an original CSX3000 series you will find. Styled after the infamous 427 S/C Cobras, these continuation cars are equipped with side pipes and S/C roll bar. The cars use original style chassis which have been strengthened while also taking advantage of some modern upgrades which enhance the cars safety and performance such as Baer Brakes all around.
As per the registry, this 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4000 Series was completed by Shelby Cars Northwest in West Linn, Oregon. Carroll Shelby’s “continuation series” of his beloved 427 Cobra gave rise to an all-new generation of Cobra owners demanding the ultimate in Cobra authenticity, which of course also required no less than Shelby’s imprimatur.
This eye-catching 427 S/C Cobra is a CSX4000 finished in beautiful Guardsman Blue paint with White stripes complemented by a black leather interior. The cockpit is outfitted with leather seats, side door pockets, and authentic Shelby gauges. Open the hood and you will find an aluminum FE 427ci big block Ford engine backed by a 5 speed Tremec transmission and 3.54 True Trac rear end. As soon as you fire it up, the car instantly makes all the right noises to bring you right back to 1965. The side-mount exhaust barks with an almost intoxicating sound, one of the great aspects of driving a Cobra to be enjoyed and has made them so famous. Equipped with Trigo 15x7.5” front and 15x9.5” rear wheels shod with Goodyear Billboard tires this car has got a perfect look with all the right proportions.
Since the build was completed, this Cobra has seen only 4,920 miles of light use while being meticulously maintained by an avid collector. Documenting its authenticity is the Shelby Manufacturer Statement of Origin, build photos, invoices, receipts and more! With the tag right on the dash from Shelby American proudly displaying its CSX number, this CSX4000 series 427 S/C car is an incredible chance for someone searching for an authentic Shelby Cobra that can be used and enjoyed.
