Chassis: CSX2156
The final Cobra built by Shelby to the Le Mans specification, chassis CSX2156 was sold new to American privateer racer George Butler. He debuted the car in the 1963 Nassau Speed Week, where Butler won his class in the Preliminary Nassau Tourist Trophy and the Governor's Trophy. A few months later, it was entered for Ed Butler and Charlie Rainville in the Daytona 2000 km. Competing as a Roadster, the Le Mans Cobra finished seventh overall. Chassis CSX2156 has survived in its Daytona guise and still bears the #10 start number. It has for many years been part of a prominent American collection, and on occasion has been raced in historic events, including the 2012 Shelby Cup at the Goodwood Revival, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Cobra.
