1964 Shelby 289 Cobra VIN: CSX 2518 CSX 2518 was originally billed to Shelby American on 7/21/64, and later shipped to LA aboard the SS Dongedyk on 7/30/64. Once completed at Shelby American the car was invoiced on 11/3/64 to Reynolds Motors of Syracuse NY for $6,150.05. CSX 2518 would next appear in Colorado in June of 1980 under the ownership of Ray Danton. He would bring 2518 to Mike Dopudja of Mike's Performance Headquarters in Englewood, CO in 1981 for restoration and race prep. Dopudja, a master fabricator, is known for having finished the famous Shelby Type 65 Daytona Super Coupe, and for prepping the Shelby Can-Am Cobra. Danton would race the car at the Atlanta Vintage Grand Prix at Road Atlanta in 1982, as well as showing it at the Old Care Council Show in Denver, CO. In late 1985 he would put the Cobra up for sale for $65,000, but it wouldn't be until December 15, 1988 that John Baldwin of Covington, LA would purchase the car. Baldwin would enjoy CSX 2518 as a road car for most of the next decade, taming the car of its racing heritage and make it the streetcar it is today. The car would be repainted its beautiful Guardsman blue during his ownership. He would comment that,
1966 Shelby GT350 VIN: SFM 6S384 This GT350 was originally invoiced to Pueblo Ford of Tucson, Arizona on 1/12/66 for $3,705.75. It was ordered in Wimbledon White with optional Le Mans stripes and an automatic transmission. It sat on their lot for almost a year before it was sold to Walter Zimmer of Tucson, Arizona on 2/22/1967. Pueblo Ford painted the car green and had aluminum 10-spoke wheels fitted before delivery, believed to be at the request of Zimmer. According to the Shelby warranty records Zimmer racked up 2606 miles by 5/16/67. Zimmer would go on to autocross the car when he was stationed in Charleston, SC. The local dealer installed a top-loader manual transmission to help with his autocrossing efforts. In 1973 the Shelby would follow Zimmer to Richmond, New South Wales, Australia where it was fitted with a large bumper sticker - Caution Left Hand Drive. Bill Shannon of Meridian, Idaho would purchase 6S384 in March of 1990. Eleven years later, in September of 2001 the car would move on to Thom Canon of Medford, Oregon, who would repaint the car in its original Wimbledon White with blue Le Mans stripes. Canon wouldn't have the car long as he would sell it to Robert Hartman
1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 VIN: SFM5S517 This blue striped beauty is number 517 of the 562 Shelby Mustang GT350s built in 1965. The smallest and lightest of the GT 350 models, the 2-seater fastback came with the â€˜Cobra hi-riser' K-Code 289ci, 306 hp V8 attached to a 4-speed manual transmission. As with all 1965 GT350s, 5S517 is painted Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue rocker stripes. It has the optional Le Mans top stripes, also in Guardsman Blue. Finished in July of 1965, 5S517 remained in Shelby American's possession until January of 1966 when the car was finally sent out into the world to find its first owner. It found a home in the spring of 1966 with Fred H. Thompson of Jackson, MS. After a couple years of use Fred fancied a 1962 Corvette belonging to Ronnie MacDowell, also of Jackson, MS and traded the car straight across. MacDowell got the itch less than a year later, and 5S517 was swapped again, this time to Mississippi lawyer and racer Sam E. Scott for a 1967 Shelby GT350 #097. Scott was a partner with Car and Driver editor William Jeanes in the legendary Southern good times racing team, Bolus & Snopes. Known for their lighthearted attitude towards professional racing,

1966 Shelby American GT350 s/n SFM 6S342 White with Black Interior Nothing says American performance like Carroll Shelby. With his legendary Cobra, LeMans winning bravado, and Texas homespun charm, Ford knew they could count on ol’ Shel to deliver a genuinely high performance race ready variant of the already successful Mustang. The production GT350 was fast, loud and exhilarating to drive, a uniquely brawny American GT that was a match for almost any other machine on the road. But the production GT350 was a carefully planned compromise, a streetable allowance toward the car Shelby intended to race – the GT350R, the “R” signifying its racing specification. The production GT350 suspension, steering and brakes were already outfitted for SCCA competition, but the R-model’s K-code 289 powerplant needed work. R-model engines were built to order, using blueprinting, heads ported and polished by Valley Head Service, Tri-Y headers by Cyclone, a center-pivot-float Holley 715 CFM carburetor on a Cobra intake and flow-through side-exit exhaust. Outputs ranged from 325 to 360 horsepower on the Shelby dynamometer. Differential and engine oil coolers were added, the latter necessitating the dist
