The authentic Bondurant Edition Shelby roadster Series is based on the cars piloted by World Champion driver Bob Bondurant. CSX2771 is painted and fitted in 1965 Rossfeld Hillclimb #21 livery [Rossfeldrennen, near Berchesgaden in the Bavarian Alps]… one of Bob Bondurant’s seven First Place wins that year along with the ONLY win for a Cobra Roadster. It was also the ONLY roadster on the team in 1965.

Only 50 historically-accurate Continuation Bondurant Tribute cars will be built. Each handcrafted Cobra will have a CSX2000 Shelby serial number to be documented in The Shelby Registry. This FIA Shelby Cobra roadster is based on CSX2345.

This Bondurant Tribute Cobra roadster includes a raked-back windscreen, period-correct gauges, 14-gallon [53-litre] fuel tank, 16” original-style leather-bound steering wheel, transverse leaf spring suspension (front & rear), driver’s door knee-pad, high beam activation switch, 1965 race-correct rollbar and Shelby American CSX2000 serial-numbered dash plaque and original-style engine bay chassis# plate.

That original CSX2345 remains in this same livery to this day [in The Shelby American Collection museum in Boulder, Colorado].
