The Shelby American and Superformance in the sidelines of Barrett-Jackson auction will present four special Shelby Cobra, with each honoring the past racing Cobra.
The cars are replicas of the legendary Shelby who participated in endurance races in 1963 and 1964 with Ken Miles drivers, Dan Gurney, Allen Grant and Dave MacDonald. A total of 15 cars will go out in the market, with 13 of them have a body polyester and 2 aluminum body.
It is painted in car color of Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Allen Grant and Dave MacDonald and each car will be accompanied by a commemorative Baume & Mercier Shelby Sebring clock and a specific tag under the hood. The company starts from today sales 15 special Cobra.
There is no word on pricing, but it is evident that each car will have a reserve. Expect these to sell for more than $100,000, because fetching a new Shelby Cobra with period-correct engines and trim is arduous, to say the least.
The cast-iron block engines will provide about 435 HP, and will drive the rear wheels through a manual gearbox, just like the ones on the legendary race cars of the day. Moreover, each customer will get a complementary watch made by Baume & Mercier. The said watches will have the vehicle’s Cobra CSX chassis number engraved, so this will be a personalized experience.
