Description:


Shelby Cobra CSX2112 was billed to Shelby American on January 1963 after which the car had 3 US owners where it led a normal life until bought by Jim Gould in 1976. After having owned the car for 20+ years, Jim modified the Cobra in 2000 to compete in Vintage races. After several years as a successful vintage racer and 33 years of ownership, Gould sold CSX2112  – through Curt Vogt of Cobra Automotive - in 2007 to Dutch historic racer Peter Van Hoepen. Peter sent CSX2112 to renowned Cobra preparer Classic Racing Cars Ltd where it has been looked after until today. In 2012 we assisted Van Hoepen with the sale of the car to its current owner who has raced it very successfully on the European historic racing scene with many wins and podium finishes.

CSX2112 has undergone a full rebuild following a crash at the 2016 Goodwood members meeting.  The chassis and body repair was done by renowned Cobra specialist G&A Fabrications (an extensive repair description and picture file comes with the car) after which the car was completely overhauled by Classic Racing Cars Ltd, a leading preparer of racing Cobra's. The gearbox, suspension and brakes have been rebuild, a new fuel cell and fire system was installed and the engine was rebuilt to latest FIA specification by V8 engine specialist Steve Warrior.

Still benefitting from a current (2013) FIA HTP, CSX2112 is now looking more resplendent than ever and remains one of the most competitive FIA racing Cobras as evidenced by its pole position in the Gentlemen Driver's race during the Masters Historic Festival at Brands Hatch.

This stunning Cobra is ready to shine again in the hands of a new, lucky owner for racing and/or rallying (street registration is possible as the old US title comes with the car). As a genuine, race-prepared Shelby Cobra, CSX2112 is eligible for all historic events around the world, where it remains a very competitive and welcomed entry.
