This is a rare opportunity to own a no stories Shelby Cobra. This 289 Cobra has the pedigree to be the cornerstone of your collection. By the way it drives as good as it looks.
While working as an aerospace engineer at Douglas Aircraft in 1964, John Hector began his search for a Cobra. He had driven a classmates Cobra after college and had become entranced by the prospect of owning one himself. He inquired after a few used cars, until he came upon a new 289 Cobra in Utah. Walter Larson Ford in Murray, Utah was anxious to move their Cobra before winter set in, so a deal was struck and on December 23, 1964 Hector boarded a plane and set off for Utah to collect his car. The original sticker price was $6465, and the final sale price was only $5299. Quite the deal indeed.
Hector would bring the Cobra home to Anaheim, California, and would go on to use the car as his daily driver for the next two years. During that time he would compete in a few autocross events in LA, San Diego, and Portland. In 1973 the car would be repainted in its original red. That same year Hector would move to Oregon, and the Cobra would be set aside, and driven infrequently, except for occasional local vintage sports car rallies.
CSX 2337 has never been in an accident, and the aluminum body remains completely original. One repaint in 1973. Engine was rebuilt and dynamically balanced about 10 years ago. Only 3-4000 miles since rebuild. The engine, transmission, and rear end are original to the car. Even the original spare tire, which has never been used, is included with the car.
