The car looks and drives great. Metco driveshaft hoop and new driveshaft that was balanced and welded by Power Drive in Wichita KS. I upgraded the oil filter adapter for the remote filter and oil cooler. The paint is gorgeous in the sun light and the black cherry pops. In average to poor light the car looks black. There are a couple of flaws in the paint but a buffing would cure them. There is a spider crack at the passenger hood latch. It has not grown since 2012. I do drive it occasionally but not enough to justify keeping it.
In celebration of today’s date of 4/27, we report on a driving test of Superformance 427SC replicas of Carroll Shelby’s road racers
The Pick of the Day was rarely driven during 45 years ownership
Three each of high-performance Shelby Cobras and Chevrolet Corvettes are on the docket for January’s sale
This is the fourth car in a 10-day countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s annual Northeast auction
Rare Ferrari 275 GTB alloy coupe and Shelby 427 Cobra roadster were stored untouched in a private garage for 26 years
It’s almost impossible to think that owners would leave their valuable cars behind or simply forget about them. But, as they say, life happens.
Carroll Shelby’s sports car legacy abounds in this highly original example
Sotheby’s estimates that CSX3040 will fetch between $2,000,000 and $2,400,000 at its Phoenix, Arizona, auction, which is scheduled for January 18-19.
This is the first featured vehicle in a 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
