Chassis: CSX2299
Without a doubt the most important of the six Cobra Daytonas, CSX2299 was the second example produced and the first with an Italian body. It scored a debut class win during the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans. Two months later Dan Gurney piloted the car to a GT win at Goodwood. Early in 1965 the Daytona 2000 km and Sebring 12 Hours were also added to the chassis' tally. In recent years it has been in collection of the late Larry H Miller, who generously lent the car to the Shelby American Collection museum for display. He also had it raced at the circuits were it had shone in the past. (Source: Automobile Historique #5)
