This model is an authentic reproduction of chassis CSX 2287; the very first prototype Cobra Daytona Coupe. The one and only coupe that was built entirely at the Shelby American race shop in Venice, California. It enjoys an extensive race history; competing at Daytona, Sebring, Reims, Spa Francorchamps, Oulton Park TT, and Tour de France. This venerable coupe ended its racing career by setting 25 USAC/FIA world records at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. It was driven by Dave MacDonald, Bob Holbert, Jo Schlesser, Phil Hill, Jochen Neerpasch, Innes Ireland, Andre Simon, Maurice Dupeyron, Bob Johnson, Tom Payne, Craig Breedlove, Bobby Tatroe, and Tom Greatorex. Chassis CSX 2287 won the GT race at the 12 Hours of Sebring in March 1964 with Dave MacDonald and Bob Holbert at the wheel. The race at Sebring was the first time that a Cobra Daytona Coupe wins the GT III category at an FIA race!
