This exciting Shelby Cobra is one of fifty cars produced by Shelby American to honor the golden anniversary of the iconic CSX 2000, the first Shelby Cobra ever built and of the most valuable sports cars in the world today.  The 50th Anniversary Limited Edition CSX 8000-series Cobra has exclusive use of the CSX serial numbers 8950-8999.  The late Mr. Shelby kept numbers 8950 and 8999 (both fiberglass-bodied cars), and later sold CSX 8950 for substantially more than the Shelby American offered price.  

This particular car is number 32 of 50, being numbered CSX 8981 and is reported as one of only four 50th Anniversary aluminum-bodied cars, plus it is one of only two aluminum-bodied cars with original new old stock (N.O.S.) 289-cid, 350-hp HiPo engine with two four-barrel carburetors with an original Shelby intake manifold mated to an original 289 Cobra as on can get.

Carroll Shelby announced the introduction of the CSX 8000 cars on January 22, 2011 and all cars were committed to and sold within 48 hours.  The original (and current) owner of this beautiful machine had been in pursuit of a Cobra for some time, and this journey included a trip to the Shelby facility in Las Vegas to get specific details on the possible purchase.  When this model was introduced, it proved to be the incentive needed as it was as authentic and original as any before it.  With ever escalating prices on the original period cars, this seemed to be the perfect alternative.  After calling the Shelby factory and being directed to three of their dealers; we decided upon the one that was able to produce the car as originally as possible. This dealer has access to four original 289 engines and their transmission counterparts. They received a car with "all original N.O.S. parts so the car would truly be a Cobra."

This 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra is a genuine and registered Shelby American, INC. Cobra that is...
