This is a 1/18 replica of the 'Mecum Sold' 1966 Shelby 427 S/C Roadster produced by Greenlight for their "item Block" series! The actual car sold for $1,165,000 but this one can be yours for a much lower price so don't miss out and get your hands on one today! Invoiced on December 2, 1965 and ordered through Carroll Shelby's Hi-Performance Motors on May 9, 1966, Shelby Cobra CSX3034 was completed on June 6, 1966 and picked up at the factory by its first owner Dale Kelley. Built to S/C specifications and finished in white with a black interior, black side pipes and equipped with quick jacks, it was traded by Kelley in 1968 to Bill Watkins Ford of Scottsdale. The car was purchased by Michael L. Shoen, who later authored the master historical work "The Cobra-Ferrari Wars". Shoen added a blue stripe to the car which nicely harmonized with its black exhaust and chromed roll bar. It won a Phoenix concours event in 1969 and ran some autocrosses until 1970, when Shoen advertised it for sale with the following description: '66 427 S/C. Factory competition model set up for the street. White/blue stripe. Front/rear sway bars, rebuilt suspension, new Konis, big Halibrands, 42 gallon tank, three fuel pumps, competition brakes, roll bar, differential/engine/oil coolers, headers, transistorized. New transmission, balanced, blueprinted, side-oiling 427 dyno-built by Holman and Moody. $8000 cash or with spares, $9000.
3034 was shipped by its 5th owner, Gary Yahnke, to Mike McCluskey for restoration in 1977, during which it was painted black. It then went through several hands, winning a 1st place trophy at the Northeast Fall Rally in 1979. It appeared at the 1992 Lime Rock Vintage Fall Festival still in black with black sidepipes, chrome roll bar, and quick jacks. It was then purchased by its 9th owner in 2000, fitted with new leather seats, repainted in its present Guardsman Blue with white stripes, and shown at SAAC 27, where it won the People's Choice
