Shelby 427SC ‘Continuation’ Cobra, CSX6108. If you’re on the fence about executing a lifelong dream of possessing and driving a Shelby Cobra, this is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the very best of the best. This beauty was built by Shelby American, to Carroll Shelby’s exacting specifications. It’s fully authenticated and documented, and boasts the original Shelby American MSO and ID plaque for CSX6108.
This car is quite literally a show-stopper. Months of research went into its design, inside & out. The paint scheme is glossy and mirror-like; it was custom ordered to my precise specifications, including the rookie stripes. I wanted a paint and livery that remained within the Shelby Racing team tradition, but that at the same time would stand on its own… IMHO, there are too many Guardsman Blue/Wimbledon White striped Cobras out there! Hence, the car maintains the Shelby spirit while establishing her own singular identity. There is nothing like it out there, with perhaps the exception of CSX3024.
The engine is period-correct. Although no two Cobra engines are alike, after long hours of studying books, magazines, and actual cars, I was able to come up with a period-correct engine layout I’m proud to present to you. At the end, the late Bill Parham of Southern Automotive Engines (McDonough, Georgia) made my vision reality with an awesome, extremely reliable and period-correct powerhouse of an engine.

CSX6108 was masterfully finished by Dennis Olthoff of Olthoff Racing in Mt. Ulla, North Carolina; Dennis put together a solid and drop-dead gorgeous driving machine, as only someone who has Cobra racing blood coursing through his veins can do.
This glistening beauty has a few different strokes applied to it that make it more unique. The paint scheme is accompanied by center-painted wheels, a full-width rollbar, tow hooks, competition driver seat and other distinctive touches. Most of these finishing details can be easily reversed to original delivery specs, if you desire.
This is a magnificent Cobra, well sorted in every respect, a solid performer. Always garaged, it has never been raced and only 3,000 miles logged [4,800 km], and it has never encountered any weather other than open blue sky. Don’t let it slip through your fingers!

The terrific serpentine photography you see on this page was brought to you by Hector himself, using his splendid Sony DSC-RX100M3 digicam [with its über-scharf 24–70mm Carl Zeiss lens]. Hector followed this site's 'Cobra Photography Tips'... and handily captured the sleek and aggressive persona of his li'l red reptile!
