1964 Shelby 289 Cobra
1964 Shelby Cobra 289 Roadster; S/N CSX 2393; Black/Red leather; Hammered Sold at $745,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $819,500. -- Grey painted wire wheels, wind wings, grey translucent sunvisors, grille and trunk guards, 205/70R15 Dunlop SP50 tires, original invoices from AC Cars and Shelby American, owner's handbook, parts catalog, the original seats, top bows, top and tonneau and radiator -- Owned since 1974 by Tom Warth, the go-to guy for aged automobile books, now with 119,825 miles on the odometer. Once driven from Minnesota to Monterey and back with Logan Gray, the other resource for old car books. Repainted in 2004, but never restored, which is belied by its exceptionally clean and orderly condition. Very good cosmetic and mechanical condition with minimal miles evident on the undercarriage. -- This Cobra never raced at Sebring or Road America. It never set drag racing records. But that doesn't diminish the effect of this car, a rare Cobra that has actually been driven like a real car for maybe a hundred thousand miles by a single owner who just enjoyed it and gave it anything and everything it needed without making it some kind of shrine to Carroll Shelby. It's in exceptional condition for its history and deserves every dollar of the price it brought. Maybe next time we see it at auction it'll have 200,000 miles on its odometer. That would be something special and the digit is there waiting to be turned over.
