While working for Carroll Shelby, Peter Brock designed an absolute road racing monster for the 1963 season, the Daytona Coupe. Original called the "Daytona Car" it was designed and built to take on the Ferrari GTO which had a sleeker design and was beating the Cobra at high speeds. After the Daytona placed 4th at Sebring overall and coming in 1st in the GT class, Ford got behind Shelby in an effort to beat Enzo Ferrari and his Ferrari GTOs. In 1964, the car was very competitive with Gurney and Bondurant behind the wheel. With the season wrapping up and Ferrari ahead by just a few points, the final race at Monza would be the deciding factor, however, the race was canceled, leaving a great racing "what-if?"
As a wonderful Shelby American continuation car, the Carroll Shelby licensed Shelby Daytona CSX9000 is a redesigned street version of the original race car. Leading the charge was the original designer, Peter Brock. The street car features a slightly larger body than the original car, has a reengineered suspension that was overseen by Roush Engineering, as well as many modern upgrade and creature comforts. The result is an incredible car that combines modern technology with stunning race car looks.
Finished in Guardsman blue with wimbledon white stripes & correct knock-off wheels, this Shelby Cobra Daytona was one of the first fiberglass body built cars and has just 174 miles since delivery. Standard options include, a tubular space frame, independent coil over suspension, period correct gauges, Shelby spec racing brakes, aluminum radiator, 21-gallon stainless fuel tank, leather seats, side exit exhaust, power steering, power brakes, theft deterrent system, power door locks and AC.
