1965 Cobra 289
From the inception of the small block Cobra, Carroll Shelby intended to build a race version of his lightweight roadster; its ultimate iteration was the 289 FIA roadster. While the original Cobra's lithe athleticism remains evident, the 289 FIA – with a widened track and wider, racing-specific rubber – adds a heightened muscularity to the race car's quicker acceleration and tenacious grip.
The 289 FIA Cobra car dominated tracks throughout the 1960s, defeating Jaguar, Corvette, Aston, and Ferrari on the tight road courses. While a fastback version – the Daytona coupe – was created for high speed European tracks, the reliable small block roadsters also helped win North American races and the 1965 FIA Manufacturer's Championship. It was the competitive foundation on which the Shelby legend was built.
CSX7510 was completed with Shelby Engine Company Aluinum 289 punched out to 364 cubic inches, topped with period correct Webers and making 500HP mated to a Tremec TKO600 5 Sped Manual in July of 2021.
The body was finished in stunning Polished aluminum with brushed stripes. The power is put to ground with AVON CR6ZZ Racing Tires with Goodyear Lettering.
CSX7510 is titled as a 1964 Shelby in Montana, it has 693 Miles and is available for $299,950.
