Shelby American Cobra CSX7078
The black car, with its characteristic ‘Shelby’ yellow stripe, carries a genuine CSX chassis number as it is one of a series of cars produced by Shelby American Inc., a division of Carroll Shelby International, Inc., the company founded by Carroll Shelby.
This version has a glassfibre bodyshell faithful to the lines of the ‘FIA’ Shelby Cobra racing cars and comes complete with a Ford Racing Boss 302, ‘Stroker 347’ V8.
Options fitted include door map pockets and a full leather interior, just like the earlier cars. It also has original-style pedals, catches, fittings, gear- and hand-brake levers. And, for that authentic ‘Targa Florio 1964’ look, it also comes with a single rollover hoop, diagonally braced to the passenger footwell.
