Chassis: CSX2602
Dispatched to Carrozzeria Grandsport in September of 1964, chassis CSX2602 is the highest numbered Cobra Daytona but not the last one completed. That honor, interestingly, goes to the lowest number example. It made its competition debut at the 1965 Daytona 2000 km race where it finished second in class behind a sister Daytona Coupe. At the Nürburgring, it again completed a double with a second place finish. The final contemporary outing came at Le Mans where it was entered by Scuderia Filipinetti, finished in a striking red livery. Unfortunately it retired with engine problems. In pieces, it was acquired by a Japanese collector. He had the car meticulously rebuilt and it has remained in his collection ever since. (Source: Automobile Historique #5)
