Daytona COBRA Coupes
by Peter Brock, Dave Friedman & George Stauffer
copy #231 of 400 total

Note: the Series Numbers shown below on the Certificate of Authenticity and the "chassis plate" read "#160/400", since CobraCountry had those photos from a previously-sold Coupes book ready to use. I'll be glad to take (and send you) current snapshots of any or all of those documents if you desire.

This is singularly the most fascinating, informative and thoroughly readable book on Shelby's golden years that you'll ever possess. Peter Brock's insightful narrative, in concert with splendid, on-the-scene photography and personal autographs of 43 original Shelby drivers and crewmen, makes for a certified masterstroke of Cobra racing history. An aluminum-plate replica of the original chassis plate (see below) is affixed to the inside cover, etched with the serial number of the book (#231/400).

It's the ultimate keepsake for any Shelby Cobra or Daytona Coupe enthusiast.

This is the very finest gift item on the planet for any Shelby aficionado. Personal autographs by everyone from Peter Brock and Carroll Shelby, to drivers Bob Bondurant, Dan Gurney, Chris Amon, Phil Hill and Craig Breedlove, to crewmembers Al Dowd, Charlie Agapiou, Phil Remington, John Morton, and even (the late) John Ohlsen. These are not printed autographs; rather each and every one was signed personally... a mammoth task!

Specs: Over 550 glossy pages and over 600 b&w and color photos, premium hardbound in hard slip case.
