Carroll Shelby built the cobra you see before you a decade before he passed. Like all authentic cobras, Carroll gave this racer a “CSX” chassis number. This rare snake is CSX4273. Rare because the vast majority of CSX4000’s were made of hand laid fiberglass. Carroll selected an all aluminum body for this example mounted on an original frame design of 4" round tube main rails and a 90" wheelbase.
Built at Shelby American and documented in the Shelby World Wide Registry, the provenance is pure Shelby. CSX4273 is now fully registered here in the UK, and bears a declared manufactured date of 1965, just as it did originally in America.
UK registered on 8th November 2019. Correctly registered as a 1965 historic Shelby as documents support from Shelby, never before has this car been available to buy in the UK.
Our expert team has overseen delivery from the states to the UK, since then we have MOT'd the car (even though exempt) & (Tax Exempt) correctly registered the car for UK roads, UK & V5 certification.
CSX4273 is fitted with a Shelby engineered aluminum 427 side oiler producing 685 HP and 613 ft. lbs. torque matched with a Ford 4-speed top loader gearbox.
Correct Goodyear Billboard tyres, which are correct and set up for track hard-core period racing, however they are not UK road legal. As they are correct, we have kept them on for photos but we do have a new set of Avon UK legal tyres, which will be included depending on the new owner’s preference.
This example has had just two owners. The previous owner brought it with him to the UK from the United States, and has himself enjoyed 7 years of ownership.
A Carroll Shelby built 427 alloy cobra makes for a discerning investment.
I can’t stress enough how well made this car is, the sound, the condition, the pure craftsmanship and simplistic cobra design.
