CSX2122 was invoiced to SA on 4/30/1963 and shipped to LA on 5/2/1963.
CSX2122 is one of the first 200 Cobras ever produced by Shelby American. Aligned very closely in the race lineage of the famed Sebring cars CSX2126, CSX2127 and CSX2128.
In 1978 this car was meticulously restored and sorted by Cobra experts Bill Murray of Boulder, CO, and Jim Cowles of Shelby Parts and Restoration in Green Bay, WI. At the time or restoration, hood scoop and side vents were added. Original magnesium FIA wheels were sourced from Daytona Coupe spares and added to the car. It also made an appearance in the January 1994 issue of Mustang and Fast Fords Magazine.
In the Spring of 1996 it was part of a 4 way swap which included CSX2138 and was enjoyed by other collectors and enthusiasts throughout the years. Eventually CSX2122 would land in the hands of renowned tuner and restoration expert Bruce Canepa of Scotts Valley, CA. While in Canepa's possession, CSX2122 was mechanically sorted and concours detailed inside and out, including the undercarriage. The original magnesium wheels were inspected for structural integrity and preserved for safety and longevity.
I have enjoyed the incredible reliability and drivability of CSX2122 for the last 7 years. It is one of the best driving and sounding Cobra’s I’ve had the pleasure of owning. I am now at a part of my life where I feel someone else should enjoy the ride and become the new custodian of such a wonderful piece of history.
