Chassis: CSX2286
The first of two chassis ordered from AC in the fall of 1963 specifically for the Coupe project. It was however not completed until the spring of 1965. It was one of no fewer than five Cobra Daytonas to race in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race that year. Piloted by Dan Gurney and Jerry Grant, it failed to reach the finish due to an engine failure. Grant did set the fastest time in the GT class at 3'48. Chassis CSX2286 was not raced after and returned to the United States. Since then, it has changed hands several times and for a long time was owned by George Stauffer. He published the now legendary book on Cobra Daytonas back in 1996. Today it is part of a formidable collection of historic racing cars. (Source: Automobile Historique #5)
