This Shelby Cobra is a CSX4000 continuation model that was purchased new by the current owner from Shelby American of Las Vegas, Nevada in 2007. The rolling chassis was transported to XKs Unlimited in San Luis Obispo, California, where it was assembled with a 427ci V8 and a Toploader four-speed manual transmission. Finished in silver with black stripes over a black leather interior, the car is also equipped with side pipes, a roll bar, chrome-finished bumpers, Simpson harnesses, tinted visors, 15? wheels with three-ear knockoffs, four-wheel disc brakes, MSD ignition, Holley dual-quad carburetors, and a 42-gallon fuel cell. Now showing 2,600 miles, this Cobra is offered on dealership consignment with its statement of origin, a build sheet, service records, a car cover, a tonneau cover, and a clean California title in the owner’s name that lists the car as a specially constructed vehicle.
The fiberglass bodywork is finished in Satin Silver (PPG 5832) with black “Le Mans” stripes and yellow “Rookie” accents on the driver-side front fender. Features include a chrome-finished roll hoop and bumpers as well as side exhaust pipes. The paintwork and exterior trim are shown up close in the photo gallery below.
