From six-figure originals to fiberglass replicas. the word "Cobra" can represent anything from a sinuous boulevard cruiser to a hardcore track star. With that in mind. every dynasty has a Sultan. and. for the Cobra. that Sultan is a classic like this 1-owner. 1 of 50 50th Anniversary Shelby. Commissioned and sequentially numbered by Shelby American of Las Vegas. Nevada. this small block beast combines storied heritage with killer looks. excellent build quality and unbeatable provenance. If you're searching for a fresh twist on an old favorite. forget about project cars pieced together from leftovers. And forget about sloppy replica builds that shame their fabled predecessors. Call your friends at RK Motors Charlotte and pick up this razor-sharp roadster. It's pristine. rare and ready to rock and roll!HISTORY/CONDITIONIn the summer of 1962. the Shelby Cobra took the sports car world by storm! In re-engineering an AC 'Ace' chassis to accept 289 cubic inches of Ford small block. Carroll Shelby had created a spry track monster that handily defeated proven hardware from Jaguar. Chevrolet. Porsche and Ferrari. Today. over 50 years later. the original CSX2000 is one of the most valuable American cars ever produced. And. as a fitting tribute. Las Vegas' Shelby American decided to honor that icon with 50 sequentially numbered copies of this 50th Anniversary CSX8000 roadster. Beginning as hand-laid fiberglass. CSX 8983 was assembled. hand-sanded. prepped and hand-sprayed at Hi-Tech Automotive in Port Elizabeth. South Africa. That sinister urethane 2-stage was augmented with a silver grille. chrome tube bumpers. tinted visors and monochromatic. 50th Anniversary-exclusive badging. And today. rolling only 350 miles since its 2012 debut. this classy Cobra strikes a perfect balance between outrageous looks. serious performance and excellent attention to detail. ENGINETwist the car's chrome hood ties and you'll find 289 cubic inches of CNC-ed V8 that was stamped with an official CSX 8983 identification number when installed by the pros at Shelby American. Churning 525 horsepower into 435 lb. /ft. of pavement-scorching torque. that aluminum welterweight wraps a forged 4340 crank. SCAT H-beam rods. Mahle 4032 pistons and a custom-grind hydraulic cam in a full array of track-ready ancillaries. At the top of the Cast Silver mill. a polished and decaled air cleaner marries wind with fuel supplied by black Earl's hoses and a mean Holley 650 double-pumper. The resulting air/fuel mixture makes its way from a period-correct intake to Shelby AFR heads. which hide stainless valves. high-silicone dual springs. 4130 retainers. Harland Sharp roller rockers. Viton seals and custom 4130 pushrods under familiar Cobra valve covers. When those heads flood the cylinders. an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences fire between an MSD High Vibration coil and 8mm Shelby plug wires. As combustion is sparked. resultant gases are jettisoned through ceramic-coated shorty headers. That combustion's cooling is provided by a beefy aluminum radiator. which stores water in front of a large-diameter puller fan. a small Harrison overflow tank and a high-flow water pump. A race-ready Carter fuel pump. a blueprinted Melling oil pump and tough Cloyes timing components supply endurance and longevity. And high quality ancillary components. like ARP bolts. aluminum pulleys. a "Ford" branded breather. a period-correct dipstick and a period-correct Aviad oil pan give the impression that someone really sweated the details during this incredible roadster's build. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSIONOne of the best things about buying an actual Shelby-built Cobra is the correct hardware underneath. Fully sorted and completely detailed. the car's 3-inch. Drawn Over Mandrel frame and fully independent suspension are ready to hit the toughest track you can find. Behind the engine. a "CSX 8983" stamped 4-speed sends power to a Dana 44 rear end that's fitted with Spicer half shafts and a Shelby aluminum casing. 11. 5-inch discs combine with dual-piston Baer calipers to provide confidence-inspiring stops. Modern rack-and-pinion steering makes low speed parking almost as easy as high speed sweeps. Power meets the pavement via chrome-plated spokes and 205/65R15 Firestone Precision Sport radials. And everything. from the car's welded mufflers to its standard. 16-gallon fuel tank. is essentially brand new. INTERIORCobra interiors have always been simple. and this roadster's purist nature shines like a fresh coat of wax on its glossy black fenders. Firm bucket seats stretch tight SA Rosso leather between fresh Simpson safety harnesses. In front of those seats. a leather-wrapped dash founds requisite Stewart Warner telemetry between a chrome mirror. clean Shelby wiring and a small glovebox. At the sides of that dash. lightweight doors hang more SA Rosso leather beneath small wind wings and traditional chrome handles. Below those doors. Mercedes Wine wool carpet frames a sequential plaque and simple hand controls in 50th Anniversary-exclusive floor mats. In front of the driver. a wood-rimmed steering wheel spins polished spokes around a 50th Anniversary-exclusive horn button. And behind the passengers. an aluminum-trimmed trunk features a 50th Anniversary-exclusive mat.
