Vehicle Description

The Shelby Cobra is one of the world’s most famous and recognizable sports cars. Like Carroll Shelby himself, the car is a true icon in the world of high performance. It spawned other great nameplates like the Shelby GT500, Torino Cobra, and the 428 Cobra Jet engine. This CSX4000 Series 427 S/C from Shelby Automobiles Inc. is everything the 1965 models were, and more. The authenticity is documented by Shelby CSX numbers and a manufacturer’s statement of origin (MSO) from Shelby Automobiles. Improvements include a stronger steel frame and better alloys used in the components, plus better cooling and additional heat shielding to make the car safer and more driveable without losing any of its original character. This 1965 Shelby Cobra SC is one of fifty 50th Anniversary Editions. It’s one of 29 with an aluminum body, and one of only three that were painted. The stripes harken back to Carroll Shelby’s history at LeMans. The aluminum block 427 is the product of the combined efforts of Shelby Motor Company and Roush-Yates. With it comes a complete dyno sheet documenting the brutal output of the engine at near 600 horsepower. There’s also a build book showing you exactly how the car was built and how it’s equipped, fascinating and enjoyable reading for sure. But there’s nothing that compares with getting in the seat behind all those gauges with Carroll Shelby’s signature and firing it up. The ultra-high-performance intent is clear. Big Stroud safety harnesses, a fire suppression system, 10½ inch Goodyear Eagles, Halibrand-style wheels with knock-off spinners, and chrome roll bar are obvious clues. Then when you hear this beast run, you’ll know. The storied history and pedigree of the Shelby Cobra is unmatched. And the power to weight ratio on this car takes you to performance levels approached by few other cars in the world. With just 60 test-only miles on it, we at MAXmotive are absolutely thrilled to offer you this spectacular new 50th Anniversary Edition 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4000 Roadster.

*MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles. We have more than 200 vehicles in our collection and have sold dozens nationwide and even overseas. We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle’s condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable.

It is the responsibility of the buyer to make a thorough inspection to determine the suitability of the vehicle prior to purchase.
