Auction Block: Carroll Shelby’s 1966 427 Super Snake

In the pantheon of American automotive legends, few if any names carry more weight than that of the late great Carroll Shelby. As such, pretty much every car he ever built or owned is considered to be of extreme historical significance and incredibly valuable. And such is the case with this 1966 427 Super Snake CSX 3015 that was built for, owned, and driven by the racer and auto design icon.

Described by Road & Track Magazine in 1968 as, “The Cobra to end all Cobras,” the 427 Super Snake was designed to be a spare-no-expense, no-holes-barred, ultra-high-performance version of the Shelby roadster, with an 800hp twin Paxton supercharged 427ci V8 backed by all top-of-the-line, competition-spec running gear and draped in a combination of Competition and Semi Competition Cobra bodywork. These upgrades allowed the forced-induction 7.0L V8 to propel the Cobra to a top speed of 190mph, and in the 1960s, mind you. This rolling piece of automotive history is slated to cross the block at Barrett Jackson’s forthcoming Scottsdale, Arizona sale held from March 20 through the 27th.
