Shelby 289 Cobra

This rare 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra will head to auction as part of RM Sotheby's Monterey in August, 2016.

This 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra, CSX 2473 was sold new to a Shelby employee, but was later passed on to SCCA racer Don Roberts, who achieved 14 first-place finishes in the car in the span of two years. He would later go on to become a B-production Class National Champion in the car, and amazingly not once has it ever failed to finish a race.
