Through a lurid series of events worthy of a TV soap opera, CSX2287 resides in Fred Simeone’s museum.
In 1964 the GT Championship was barely won by Ferrari over the Daytona Coupe. However in 1965 Shelby won the Constructor’s GT World Championship. In addition, the Coupes had class victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1964 and 1965, as well as other important races plus a record-setting session at Bonneville. The complete story of Shelby’s Bonneville adventure is documented (The Salt: Last Dance For a Champion) in Daytona Cobra Coupes, by Peter Brock, David Friedman
and George Stauffer.
