Exoto Cobra Daytona Coupe
#5 “1964 LeMans Winner–GT III Class” 

Personally signed by Carroll Shelby

You get a frameable, parchment-style Certificate of Authenticity with this Carroll Shelby–autographed Daytona model.

The first in Exoto’s limited-production Daytona Coupe Collectors Series. This 1964 #5 Cobra Daytona Coupe was piloted to star status by track legends Bob Bondurant and Dan Gurney; in 1965 Shelby’s Cobra Daytona Coupe wrested the World Manufacturers Championship from the clutches of Ferrari.

How do we manage to adequately describe this objet d’art? This 1:18 scale heavyweight (2.lb./0.75 kilogram) Shelby Daytona Coupe by Exoto is one of the very finest die-cast models we’ve ever seen. The details are absolutely exquisite, all the way down to the spokes and Cobra logo on the steering wheel, the stainless-steel fine-screen vent covers on the front fenders, the Weber-equipped 289″ small-block V8, the accurately-scaled ignition wiring and battery cables, the Halibrand wheels and the superbly-detailed Goodyear blue-line tires, the chromed rivets along the circumference of the tinted rear window. Even the dashboard gauges are finished to the very smallest details (the gauge needles are red colored, and even the speedometer’s redline mark is indicated). The doors, the engine cover and the rear hatchback window are all hinged and operable. This model is a fitting tribute to Peter Brock’s motoring masterstroke.

Details:
1:18 scale-9.25″ (23.4.cm) long by 4″ (10.cm) wide.

History:
chassis# CSX2299 #5 Daytona Coupe (LeMans 1964, drivers Gurney & Bondurant, painted Viking Blue–First Place, GT III Class). This was the second Coupe completed and the first completed at Carrozzeria Gransport (Italian for “Grand Sport Coachbuilders”) in Modena, Italy. Competed in nine FIA races (LeMans, Reims, Goodwood Tourist Trophy, Tour de France, Sebring, Oulton Park TT, LeMans, Enna, Daytona), won four times (LeMans ’64, Tourist Trophy ’64, Daytona ’65, Sebring ’65), and driven by Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Maurice Trintignant, Bernard de St. Auban, Jo Schlesser, Hal Keck, Jack Sears and Dick Thompson. This CSX2299 condensed history was extracted from Pete Brock’s spectacular book “Cobra Daytona Coupes.” Exoto also replicated this (chassis# CSX2299) car under its #15/Reims–Tour de France designation.
