1965 Shelby Model 2T (ONE ONLY)
Vin Number:  CSX4223

This true, official Shelby is only the 12th of 40 Cobras ever made to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Shelby Cobra. It is the only one (now or ever) built with a hand-polished aluminum body. There are over 800 man-hours spent on this car and the hours were worked by selected volunteers of the Nevada penal system to help offset the cost of their incarnation. The beautiful shine you see is pure, polished metal. Bring out the sunglasses for both you and the traffic surrounding you.
