Shelby 289FIA Cobra, CSX 7024. One of fewer than 80 Shelby CSX FIA Cobras ever built to date!
Constructed with strong, handlaid fiberglass coachwork, and built by All Pro Cars (original Shelby Dealer) in Pennsylvania in 2004. It’s a multiple Concours winner and is expertly set up to be raced as well as cruised. Painted in Stunning Red with black stripes and black roundels.
It’s titled & registered in California as a 1964 Cobra (VIN#CSX7024)
and with a period-correct black & yellow California license plate.

This fine-running, well-sorted-out FIA has logged only 7,000 miles [11,300 km]; it has taken part in limited races with SAAC and SVRA at Watkins Glen, VIR, Michigan Speedway and at Wild Horse Motorsports Park in Phoenix, and in countless open track events.
It has mostly been driven on COCOA and other Cobra Club cruises in southern California. It runs like its 1964 FIA namesake and produces the appropriately menacing exhaust melody.
Serious inquiries only, please!
