For Sale at Auction: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

In the 1960s, Carroll Shelby made automotive history with the creation of the Cobra - and the high-performance Super Snake was the "Cobra to end all Cobras." In fact, only two original Super Snakes were ever produced in the period. One was Carroll Shelby's personal vehicle, CSX 3015; the other - CSX 3303 - was tragically destroyed. Since then, Shelby produced what is known as continuation Cobras. This Super Snake, CSX 4404, is one of only three continuation Super Snakes known to exist and to be authorized by Shelby. As fate would have it, CSX 4404 was completed and delivered by Shelby right at the time of Carroll's passing in May 2012. Just like Carroll's car, this aluminum-bodied Super Snake is powered by a 427ci V8 engine and is fitted with the same twin Paxton superchargers feeding dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors sitting atop a Cross-Ram intake manifold. The engine is mated to a Toploader 4-speed manual transmission. CSX 4404 is beautifully finished in Guardsman Blue with black side pipes and a chrome roll bar. The specially made larger aluminum scooped hood was necessary to clear the superchargers and dual 4-barrel carburetors. The interior features black leather seats, black carpet, and Shelby S/C type gauges with additional gauges to monitor boost and fuel pressure. CSX 4404 has had only one owner and has been driven less than 25 miles from new. The car comes complete with its Build Sheet and the original Shelby Automobiles, Inc., MSO signed by Carroll himself, as was the dashboard.
