1965 Shelby Cobra CSX

VIN: CSX4231

Check out this gorgeous 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX! This silver roadster sporting Le Mans blue stipes has only been driven 1,144 miles since new! The CSX4000 series Cobra was Shelby's answer to the growing wave of Cobra replicas, many of them severely deficient in both quality and performance. Built in Shelby Automobiles' shop in Las Vegas, the CSX4000 series Cobras are everything the original 427s were and more. A CSX number and a Manufacturer's Statement of Origin from Shelby American Inc. documents each car's authenticity. Several well considered improvements were made in specifying the CSX4000 series, including a stronger steel frame with thicker walls, higher quality alloys in many components and better cooling and heat shielding for improved drivability and interior comfort. Under the hood of this CSX4231 an all aluminum version of the original 427ci V8. Mated to this Big Block is a Toploader 4 Speed Manual Transmission. This cobra also features Weber electronic fuel injection made to look as close to the original carburetors as possible, along with a MSD Pro Billet distributor, MSD coil, and tube Headers with Side Exhaust. Take a look inside to see the pristine interior featuring bucket seats with black leather upholstery, Shelby gauges, 4 point harnesses, a chrome roll bar, along with a polished aluminum steering wheel wrapped with beautiful wood! The underside of this Shelby is just as clean as its topside and the attention to detail throughout its construction shows throughout! This CSX Cobra is a fantastic car that any collector or enthusiast would love to own. Call us today before it's gone!
