Carroll Shelby's® dream car combined continental flair with race-track power. The result: what many consider the greatest contribution to the world of speed ever. Now, you can satisfy your own passion for speed by owning this model of Carroll Shelby's® masterpiece. Authentic detail, down to the 425hp engine under the hood. With its blue-and-gold paint scheme, it's a standout in any collection.
Shelby American offered eight color variations in the 427 S/C®s made and in all cases, dealers added racing stripes, often at the customer's request. This car, CSX3042, is regarded by many expert Cobra® collectors as one of the last 427 S/C®s sold, since it remained on the original dealer MSO into the 1970s before being sold to a private buyer. The CSX3042 is also regarded as one of the most original Cobras® in existence, faithfully preserved and maintained by Cobra® specialist, Ned Scudder. Today, this is the classic 427 S/C® against which all others are measured. With its trim and additional details that include the precisely styled headlights, it is among the rarest, most desirable S/Cs ever.
It is considered The Standard--the most perfectly restored Shelby Cobra 427 S/C® in existence. To learn how it achieved the very pinnacle of perfection, one must go back to the beginning--back to the Sizzling Sixties and the emergence of Carroll Shelby® as the world's leading practitioner of power and indisputable sultan of style.
For the true roadster aficionado, nothing has ever been built to compare to the Cobra®. Even to this day, the Shelby Cobra® stands out. This limited production sports car deserves its designation as an automotive classic because it demands your full attention. It looks great; it sounds mean; and it drives like a demon. In fact, it may well be the most powerful, the most attractive, and the most thrilling front-engine roadster ever manufactured for sale to the public.
