1963 Shelby Cobra Roadster

The Shelby Cobras of the early 1960s remain some of the most beautiful and rarest cars of all time. This was the time that Shelby attained world-class status, winning the 24 Hours Of Le Mans in 1959 and coming close in subsequent years. Though not a true racing car, this 1963 Shelby Cobra Roadster in racing red is a beautiful connection to Shelby’s illustrious racing heritage.

This example, a CSX 2197 Roadster, has been immaculately preserved from that era. It has fewer than 10,000 miles on its odometer and remained relatively unused since it was involved in a minor accident several decades ago. Just the front outer panels from the door have been replaced; much of the rest of the car, including the doors, rear clip, footwells, and engine bay panel remain true to the original stock body built by Shelby. A beautiful car for a pretty penny.
