Originally ordered 10/31/01 by Mr. Doug Hunter, chairman of the Pueblo Motorsports Park, and owner of Local Motors Inc. dealership.

Documentation of Mr. Hunters ownership includes many rare documents like the SAI Shipping/Packaging List, Cobra build specifications form, SAI warranty registration card, Dyno sheets and graphic data as well as Mr. Hunters hand written application for the World Wide Registry. In 2003. Mr. Hunter brought this Cobra to SAAC Vegas 7 where Carroll Shelby was reunited, sat in the car and signed the dash. Photos and videos of the event are included with the sale. In 2011, Mr. Hunter, always seeking to better this Cobra decided to rebuilt the engine using, Carrillo rods, also changing the rings and pistons at this time. The build was entrusted to Bobs Machine and Balance in Pueblo Colorado. Mr. Hunter kept until his untimely passing a few years ago. Tyler Hunter, his son, sold the car to its most recent ownership, two years ago. The previous owner having dual citizenship, he decided to import this 427 S/C to the UK for his use and enjoyment. At this time, the original color Red was changed to Black. The bare metal repaint was performed in October-December 2022 to concours standards by well-known and respected Somerset, UK based Charlies Classic & Custom Body & Paint Shop, also known and for their Aston Martin fabrication and paint. In depth videos of Charlies work on this Cobra have been documented on YouTube. Charlie is also recognizable from his debut on NBCs Hot Wheels Ultimate Challenge with Jay Leno. This CSX 4000 427 S/C was then given to Redline Engineering, also in the UK where original AC mechanics as well as long time Cobra experts Peter Ducket and Neil Fisher fine tuned all to perfection. Retaining residences in both the UK and US it was decided to return this Cobra to the United States. Today, this Cobra is once again registered and titled here in the United States. Recently owned by as well-known Cobra collector-enthusiast, this Cobra is one of many Cobras owned within the collection throughout the years. This is an opportunity to own one of the Shelby Enterprises aluminum 427 S/C Cobra in superb condition and with outstanding provenance-documentation from new.
