FORD SHELBY 427 GT COBRA
Shelby AC Cobra, CSX2000, the prototype Shelby Cobra, Shelby American Museum, Las Vegas, NV "CSX2000 is the first Shelby Cobra ever built and quite possibly the most valuable American sports car in the world. This 1962 Cobra has been owned by Carroll Shelby personally since it was built and is in "survivor" condition. The car still has its original four speed Ford 260 c.i.d. engine, brakes, interior and body. As this Shelby was used in various magazine stories when the Cobra was introduced, it has been painted several different times." - Shelby American Museum.
A native Texan, before his racing career began, Carroll Shelby graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School, here in Dallas, Texas.
