Shelby Cobra 427 "CSX3281"
1967 SHELBY COBRA 427 CSX3281 is a 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra in Black with a Black Leather Interior. It was built with a 427 cubic inch side-oiler, overhead valve V8 engine with four speed manual transmission, four-wheel independent coil spring suspension, rack and pinion steering, 4-wheel disc brakes and a 90" wheelbase. Originally finished in Green, this Shelby Cobra is Fully Documented in the Shelby American Registry and was 1st billed to go to a Ford Dealer in Michigan in 1966 and then sold to its 1st owner in Houston Texas. In 1976 the car was sold and sent to Sacramento California where the new owner who worked at Cobra Performance replaced the cars original 428 motor with the proper 427 inch big block and modified the car with a full roll cage, rectangular tail lights (instead of the original twin round ones), and enlarged rear flares to fit the wide Jongbloed wheels. It also received a hood scoop, S/C dash layout and side pipes. In 1979 it was sold to a buyer in Oklahoma with the S/C upgrades and a 42-gallon fuel tank. The car was then later sold to another Texan who decided to send the car to Bill Murray in Colorado for a full restoration, where the roll cage was removed and replaced with the correct S/C roll bar. Refinished in Black, it was fitted with Chrome Side-pipes and “Quick Jacks” as well as 7.5 and 9.5" Halibrands and a Competition Gas Cap. The enlarged rear flares remained in place. Bill Murray is widely recognized as one of the foremost Cobra experts and restorers in the country. With the restoration completed in 1984, the Cobras owner never returned to pick up the car and it was sold to someone in Colorado before it was acquired in the autumn of 1987 by renowned collector Otis Chandler of Oxnard, California for his Vintage Museum of Transportation. After nearly 20 years in Chandler’s respected collection it was offered for sale and returned to Texas. This is a stunning example with an unblemished history that includes ownership by one of the country's most respected collectors, and destined for another collection! CSX3281 was offered for sale, in March of 2015, by Motorcars International, based in Springfield, Missouri USA at a price of $1,299,500… This original artwork of CSX3281 was commissioned and delivered to a regular client in Arizona, USA in mid-2015. A limited number of individually signed, giclée style prints of the artwork (depicting this beautiful car) are available for sale in a choice of sizes. Also, in addition to the prints, signed copies of both the original sketch and layout line drawing for this artwork will be made available for sale shortly.
