1965 427 SC CobraShelby American CSX 6028

This is a factory-built 1965 Shelby SC Cobra manufactured by Shelby American. The powertrain was installed byPerformance Engineering, an authorized CSX dealer in Ohio. The cobra is fitted with the correct 427ci Side-Oiler producing 575hp and the correct top loader, close-ratio 4-speed transmission keeping true to the cobra's racing heritage. Despite the miles, the roadster shows little to zero wear and the fiberglass body and paint are in immaculate condition.
The owner is a meticulous car enthusiast that took great pride in this vehicle. It was annually trailered to Las Vegas to be serviced with Tom Barnard at Tom's Motorsports (previously Speedway Classic Cars). Tom is a known authority on Shelby automobiles and if you call him directly and ask about "Stan's Red Cobra," he could tell you all about it. The owner is 6' 3" so he had Tom install a custom footbox with racing pedals to allow more legroom for taller drivers. This modification cost $6,500. The cobra also has the slim dual Optima Red Top batteries (fitted behind the seats), and almost brand new Avon tires - known to be the best driving tires for the cobra (cost $1,800).
