This 1964 Shelby Cobra 2dr 289 Convertible features a 289 V8 8cyl Gasoline engine. It is equipped with a 4 Speed Manual transmission. The vehicle is Red with a Black Leather interior. CSX2197 Presented for your consideration is an exceptional Shelby 289 Cobra. Finished in its original factory finish of Red coachwork over a Black leather interior, CSX2197 was originally invoiced to Crater Lake Motors, Inc. (Medford, OR) on December 11, 1963. Sold new to Mark C. Tower (OR), the car changed hands twice in the late 60's, firstly to Howard Nettleton (Tacoma, WA), and then John Stevens Jensen (CA), whom registered the car with the California License Plate “VNN 794”. 2197 was purchased by Ken Eber in 1982, and sold later the same year to Chic Ford, but apparently never titled in his name. John McCann (Greenwood, IN) acquired the car in a trade deal involving CSX2049 in May 1982 with 9,700 miles showing on the odometer. Steve Posey purchased CSX2197 in the mid 1980's and re-sold it to renowned Cobra restorer Bill Kemper, who advertised the car for sale in 1987 for $33,000. Unsold at that time, Mr. Kemper stripped the car for what would be a long-term personal restoration, performed as time permitted. Baurle Auto Sport performed restoration of the chassis by 1990, and after considerable attention was paid to every detail, 2197 was finally completed and acquired by Bruce Canepa in May, 2010. Every aspect of this wonderful 289 Cobra has been restored to its original glory, and the result is truly stunning. Complete with convertible top, tonneau cover, grease gun, floor jack, hammer, and tools. - Contact Automobile Sales directly on 408-656-1491 -
