Vehicle Description

Commissioned by Caroll Shelby, the CSX 4000 Continuation Series was everything the legendary 427 Cobras are and more.

Built at Shelby American Las Vegas, this early car was the 21st Cobra sold to the public. It's rolling chassis was completed April 23, 1997, and its 428ci SCJ V8 engine was built by noted engine builder, Stan Johnson of Ford Powertrain Pupallup, WA. The engine is equipped with a fully balanced rotating assembly with resized LeMans rods, aluminum Cobra Jet heads by Bliss, Blue Thunder aluminum intake with correct Holley 780 carburetor with Turkey Baster, and sends power through a Toploader 4-speed manual transmission with 3.54 Dana rear end.

This Cobra was featured in two Xbox 360 games, Project Gotham Racing 4 and Forza Motorsports 3. It's a two-owner car with all documentation and receipts, including the original copy of the MSO signed by Carroll Shelby. It's listed in the new Cobra Registry and the dash signed by Peter Brock and Allen Grant. A select offering from a private collection.
