CSX4829 Vehicle Information and History:
This Shelby Cobra 427 S/C CSX4000 Series is a fiberglass-bodied continuation car built by H.R.E. Motorcars of Freeport, New York in 2006. This car is chassis number 4829, and power is from a Shelby America all-aluminum 427ci V8 with Shelby aluminum heads stroked to 482 cubic inches that is paired with a Tremec five-speed manual gearbox. The odometer shows just over 5,600 miles.
The Shelby alloy-block V8 is mated to a five-speed Tremec TKO 600 gearbox and sends power to the rear wheels via a custom driveshaft. The engine is topped with an eight-stack sequential fuel-injection unit by TWM (now Borla). Fabricating, machining, assembly, and blueprinting was by B&B Automotive Machine Shop of Lynbrook, New York, in 2007. Recent service was done in December 2018 and included a new battery, a valve adjustment, spark plugs, an oil and filter change, new fuel filters, and a check of all fluids. Dynamometer measured 620 horsepower and 613 lb-ft of torque.
The body is finished in black with black side pipes and a black roll bar. 3M paint-protection film has been applied to the hood, the front fascia, and the front and rear fender flares. Quick-jack bumpers are fitted front and rear, and the battery is located in the trunk. Powder-coated Vintage Wheels with polished rims and knock-off hubs measure 17″ x 8.5″ up front and 17″ x 10.5″ at the rear. Michelin Pilot Sport tires size 245/45 in front and 335/35 at the rear date from 2006.
The interior is black leather, and this car was specified with a short shifter, door pockets, a fire extinguisher, and a hidden kill switch. The driver’s seat is bolted to the floor—using stock holes—to make for a lower seating position and more legroom. Equipment includes a detachable steering wheel with a wood rim, a heater and defroster, a fuel gauge, and a fuel-pressure gauge. A plate on the dash from Shelby Automobiles identifies this 427 S/C as CSX4829, and Carroll Shelby signed the sun visor.
