Engine Number 3162


As documented in the World Registry of Cobras, CSX 2274 was delivered new to a Mr. Clint Sandusky, Jr, in June of 1964 via Noble Motor Company of Danville, Illinois. The Registry chronicles a series of owners throughout the decades, and importantly reports no incidents, crashes, or egregious modifications that plague so many sports racers of the day. In the mid-1990s our CSX 2274 would find its way into a noted Northeast USA collection where it would reside for the next 25 some years until coming into another nifty Northeast USA collection, where we offer you the 289 from today. Once into the most recent ownership, a comprehensive servicing and sorting was commissioned with marque specialist Mark Allin’s Rare Drive of New Hampshire. This all encompassing project’s final cost tallied nearly $120,000.00, with all systems on the button. Cosmetically the 289 makes a genuine and authentic appearance, nowhere near concours mind you, but looking sharp in all respects, and something a real driver can appreciate. Importantly too, and unlike so many Cobras, CSX 2274 retains its original numbers matching engine, as well as its fitted from new dual quad carbs, and is a MkII example with racking and pinion steering, of which approximately 528 were manufactured. Originality, matching numbers, fully sorted – CSX 2274 is an exemplary example of Carroll Shelby’s icon.
