1965 Shelby

CSX4227 was delivered by Shelby American in 2002 as one of very few aluminum bodied CSX4000 cars produced. For reference, helby American produces roughly 1 alloy bodied car for every 5-6 fiberglass bodied cars.

It was delivered to one of the most reputable Shelby dealers in the country, itch Hughes at S/C Motorsports in Mustang, klahoma, ho proceeded to build the car to the same high standard to which he builds all his cars. An original, ate coded 427 side oiler block was sourced along with aluminum heads. The motor was dressed correctly to closely mimic the engine compartment of an original CSX3000 car and the motor was topped with a period correct Holley 715. Power is transferred through a 4 speed toploader with a heavy duty clutch to handle the immense torque and horsepower of this very healthy 427.

Adding to the car's intrigue, 227 was left in bare aluminum with a brushed finish from the factory as the first owner preferred the look of raw alloy to that of a perfectly painted car. With the metal on display, t is easy to enjoy the character and workmanship which goes into the making of each one of these aluminum bodies and you will never have to answer the question of whether the car is alloy or fiberglass.

CSX4227 does have the coveted California SB100 registration.

Overall, he car was built to a high standard from a workmanship perspective and special effort was taken to give the car that “correct” look that everyone wants on their CSX4000 car including a blue painted engine block with black painted transmission. It is built like a proper 427 S/C should be built. If you are looking for a wild 900hp motor and a 6 speed, ou will not find it here. What you will find is an authentically spec'd and built car which is ready to give you all the thrills of the real deal.

CSX4227 has just come from the original owner and only displays 2,030 miles at the date of publish. The car has never been wrecked. and has no bad history. Having just come out of 7 years of storage, he car has been shaken down over its last 180 miles and has performed flawlessly. It has just been fitted with brand new tires.The car has gobs of torque, orsepower, nd bad attitude.

As things stand today, helby American is charging $160,000 for new aluminum CSX4000 rollers. Clearly, hat doesn’t taken into account around $30,000 in drivetrain and miscellaneous parts, he labor which will be incurred to build the car, nd the extensive wait period to get one of these cars from the factory. At the end of the day, oday’s buyer for a new car will easily have $200,000+ in a finished aluminum bodied car, f they can even get their hands on an alloy roller in the first place.

CSX4227 is a well built and low mileage example which is ready to go tomorrow. The chance to purchase a finished aluminum bodied is not one which comes up often. Those who own alloy bodied cars rarely put them on the marketwhile you have your choice of 10s of fiberglass bodied examples at any given time. In addition, t is tough to imagine owning a better CSX number than CSX4227.

CSX4227 is now ready to head to its next home. Please call Vernon at 913.232.2136 for additonal information or to schedule a showing at our Overland Park, ansas showroom!
