Classic Car Overview

1964 Shelby Daytona Coupe Recreation For Sale -Owned By Author Of The Cobra-Ferrari WarsMike Shoen LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1964 Shelby Daytona Coupe Recreation The Cobra Daytona Coupe; the most famous of all the Shelby Cobras. The Cobra Roadster dominated in America, winning both the USRRC and SCCA championships in 1963. Shelby set his sights far higher for the 1964 season, adding to the mix, his quest to win the FIA World Championship. The European circuits like Le Mans, Spa and Reims had longer straightaways compared to many American tracks, so extended periods of top speed would be of great benefit. Under close inspection, the FIA rule book revealed that a production chassis could be fitted with a non-production style body. Of course a Coupe with better aerodynamics could fill this void. A 23 year old Pete Brock designed the Daytona Coupe, which proved to add approximately 25 MPH to the Cobras top speed. The 1964 FIA Season was turning out to be a major success, The Daytona Coupe had placed 1 st IC and 4 th overall at the 1964 Le Mans 24 Hours. Even after some bad luck, Shelby was still very capable of beating Ferrari in the overall points coming into the last 3 races. The Tour De France was an almost guaranteed win for Ferrari and Bridgehampton very likely a win for Shelby, leaving only Monza. This track with its long straightaways heavily favored the Shelby Daytona Coupes over their rival, the Ferrari 250 GTO. Enzo himself, who had a strong influence over Monza race officials; behind closed doors had the FIA cancel the Monza race, effectively securing the FIA Championship for Ferrari. The following year in 1965 the Daytona Coupes dominated and won the 1965 FIA World Championships, perhaps Shelbys proudest accomplishment. The Shelby Daytona Coupes are Americas 250 GTO, well deserved by their performance and beauty. Mike Shoen the owner of this Daytona Coupe is one of the most famous Cobra historians and truly the first to recognize the importance of these cars. He had begun purchasing Cobras in the late 60s into the 70s and purchased csx2299, the most famous Daytona Coupe directly from Shelby himself. Shoen was the first major Cobra collector; he found and owned only the most important of all Cobras including the first Cobra race car, the only unrestored FIA roadster and 3 original Daytona Coupes all at one time! Including the Le Mans winner! After eventually selling off his Daytona Coupes and other Cobras, in recent years he went about having a Daytona Coupe reproduced that would give him the same feeling as his original cars. Lech Kowalski of Caro Cars in Poland, ex MIG jet fabricators with a passion for Cobras who used to work at Kirkham was the obvious choice to build the body and chassis. They were able to borrow the original Daytona Coupe csx2300 and copy the exact body shape and chassis from the car. Shoen himself who previously owned csx2300 chose Caro Cars as he knew they were building them correctly and himself kno
