A very rare Shelby for sale here.
The only minor flaw will be it was originally green, repainted black and the original 428 motor was replaced with a 427.

Engine: 427 Side-Oiler V8.
Transmission: 4 Speed manual.

Four wheel independent coil spring suspension, rack and pinion steering, 4 wheel disc brakes and a 90″ wheelbase.
Originally finished in Green.

This Shelby Cobra is Fully Documented in the Shelby American Registry and was 1st billed to to a Ford Dealer in Michigan in 1966 and then sold to its 1st owner in Houston Texas.
In 1976 the car was sold and sent to Sacramento California where the new owner who worked at Cobra Performance replaced the cars original 428 motor with the proper 427 inch big block and modified the car with a full roll cage, rectangular tail lights (instead of the original twin round ones), and enlarged rear flares to fit the wide Jongbloed wheels.
It also received a hood scoop, S/C dash layout and side pipes.
In 1979 it was sold to a buyer in Oklahoma with the S/C upgrades and a 42 gallon fuel tank.
The car was then later sold to another Texan whom sent the car to Bill Murray in Colorado for a full restoration, where the roll cage was removed and replaced with the correct S/C roll bar.
Refinished in Black, it was fitted with Chrome Sidepipes and Quick Jacks as well as 7.5 and 9.5″ Halibrands and a Competition Gas Cap. The enlarged rear flares remained in place.
Bill Murray is widely recognized as one of the foremost Cobra experts and restorers in the country. With the restoration completed in 1984, the Cobras owner never returned to pick up the car and it was sold to someone in Colorado before it was acquired in the fall of 1987 by renowned collector Otis Chandler of Oxnard California for his Vintage Museum of Transportation.
After nearly 20 years in Chandlers respected collection it was offered for sale and returned to Texas.
