Type 65 427 Cobra Super Coupe

This car is a result of a secret project undertaken by Pete Brock, the Shelby American director of special projects.After designing the 289 Cobra Daytona Coupe, Mr Brock then designed this car as a coupe version of the 427 Competition Cobra. It was designated the Type 65 Coupe and came to be known as the 427 Daytona Super Coupe or, in short, the Super Coupe.

Originally started only as a 427 chassis and completed on 3/13/65, it was shipped to Slough, England for construction of a coupe body by Radford Coach builders. This project was canceled before fully completed. It was shipped back to Shelby American in late 1965 and stored at the Shelby facility in unfinished condition.

The project Shelby Cobra Daytona Super Coupé Type 65 CSB 3054 had to be engaged in competition in 1965 but because of problems, of incompatibility with the production calendar for the homologation of 100 copies and the arrival of the program GT40 it was long delayed. Aimed at international endurance racing, it would have been a formidable competitor at Daytona and Le Mans.
