1965 Shelby 427 S/C Cobra “CSX 4600”

Published By

As one of the most iconic cars built by one of racing’s legendary figures, the Shelby Cobra is a very desirable car. Unfortunately, acquiring one is another story. That’s what makes this 1965 Shelby 427 S/C Cobra “CSX 4600” so unique. Any Shelby enthusiast or collector is lucky this car is available for sale right now. 

Obviously, you can see the exterior right away, but here is something the mirror-like body does not tell you right away: it is bronze, formed by hand. This hand-polished bare-metal body features brushed stripes for a contrasting finish that shimmers.

The real fun is driving this car though, if you think you can handle it. This is not a go-kart, but you will feel like you are young again behind the wheel of this Cobra. It has the famous Ford 427 V8 engine under the hood and this snake brings plenty of venom with its bite.

This engine is special, to say the least. It is no longer a 427 cubic-inch engine. Now it features a displacement of 511 cubic inches. That’s almost 8.4 liters, there are 10 cylinder engines that are not even this large.

Of course, it is still the aluminum-block 427 FE V8 engine, but with a few modifications by the Carroll Shelby Engine Company. Obviously boring and stroking the engine will create the potential for more power. A lot more.

With 650 horsepower, this Cobra slithers a bit until the rear tires grip, as it should. If you love torque, this engine produces over 670 pound-feet of it. It features Borla Induction throttle-body fuel injection also built by the Carroll Shelby Engine Company. A 5-speed manual transmission puts you in control.

All the classic Shelby Cobra elements are here from the stainless steel side exhaust pipes to the chrome roll bar. This car is only an interpretation of the famous Shelby 427 S/C Cobra, but it is spot on. 

You can see the meticulous attention to detail on this 1965 Shelby 427 S/C Cobra “CSX 4600” as it clearly isn’t just another replica. Not only is it perfection, it offers the opportunity to experience a dream come true for many drivers, but only a few will ever drive it. Don’t miss your chance to make sure the next driver is you.
