Description

This example is one of 530 equipped from the factory with a four-speed manual transmission.

The 428ci Cobra Jet V8 is said to have been fitted with a replacement block in the late 1960s and features cast aluminum valve covers with “Cobra Le Mans” lettering.

A Holley four-barrel carburetor was installed in August 2016, and an engine-out service performed in December of that year included the installation of new engine seals.

California emissions equipment was fitted in June 2017, and an oil change was last completed in March 2022.

A removed Accel 20200 distributor is also included in the sale.

The replacement engine block shows a date code of 9E27, which translates to May 27, 1969.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission that was removed from the car and resealed in December 2016.

The cabin features front bucket seats and a Sport Deck rear seat trimmed in black vinyl with knitted inserts.

The Interior Décor Group added woodgrain trim to the dashboard, center console, and door panels.

A roll bar with inertia-reel seatbelts was standard in Shelby cars, and additional equipment includes a Tilt-Away steering column, an AM radio, and a Cobra Jet dash badge.

The Visibility Group included under-dash courtesy lights and illumination in the glovebox, trunk, and engine compartment.

The dash panel features a Carroll Shelby signature, and a factory-style shifter was installed in August 2016.

A Hurst shifter that was removed from the car is included in the sale.

The woodgrain-rimmed steering wheel with a Shelby horn button frames a 140-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6k-rpm redline, an analog clock, and gauges for fuel level and engine temperature.

A Stewart-Warner ammeter and oil pressure gauge are mounted beneath the radio.

The five-digit odometer shows 60k miles, tmu.
