In 1964 the Shelby
Daytona Coupe won the GT Class at Sebring and again,
later, at the LeMans 24 Hour (24 Heures du Mans).
More importantly, it played a signal role in snatching the trophy
and the title 'World Manufacturers Championship' from
the clutches of Enzo Ferrari. It is no surprise that today it
remains one of the most replicated cars due to its proportionate
lines, performance and pedigree.
there are many fine replicas available on the market, there are
a few of them that are built above and beyond the rest to really
bring out the best of what the original Daytona Coupe
had to offer. This sleek beauty is no exception; it has retained
many period qualities during the build but has had a creative
twist added to offer a slightly different appeal.
Rose Special" is a Peter Brockapproved (documented)
subtle redesign of the Shelby/Brock Daytona Coupe. Coachwork
by Bob Schumacher of Omaha, Nebraska; chassis by Shaun King of
Wisconsin, it was originally built in 2004 for a Mr. Watson.
it was purchased by Dan Rose, where it began its transformation
and many subtle changes, making it the driving machine it is
today. Much of the work was completed by two main specialists:
John Corson of Pine Plains, New York, and Wheels of Time,
also in Pine Plains. The overall build quality and attention
to detail is of the highest quality. Utilizing a fiberglass monocoque
on a 3" tubular-steel safety cage and chassis with a 90"
wheelbase, all measured from the original, this car was built
completed many design changes including many minor changes to
the nose and hood, as well as lowering the top of the windshield
and extending quarter windows past the 'B pillar.' Eliminating
the spoiler, and finishing it with Trigo Halibrand replica
wheels and a slightly different custom-made Hushpower
exhaust, it boasts many creative touches. The interior was completed
with once M&R three-point harnesses aluminum seats
and a nicely completed dash with Stewart-Warner gauges.

of this Coupe throughout is superb. The car has logged
only just over 1,700 miles (2,750 km), so it shows like
new. The coachwork is free of any blemishes or stone chips with
excellent fit & finish throughout. The cockpit also shows
wellit's new and free of any defects. Just like the rest
of this ultimate driving machine, the undercarriage evidences
hardly any use at all.

to one of the best GT cars known, finished in striking colors,
with impressive build quality during a very creative but subtle
redesign this car offers one of your best opportunities to possess
