Considered to be one of the most important American sports cars in automotive history, CSX 3015 is not only special for its rarity but for the fact that it was once owned by the legend himself, Caroll Shelby. Powered by a 427 cubic-inch V8, the car is only one of 23 427 competition roadsters ever built and was turned into a Semi-Competition model in 1967, complete with twin Paxton superchargers and a three-speed automatic transmission. Today, the car still has its original body with the 1967 Super Snake hood, original date-coded 1965 Competition Girling CR and BR calipers, and the original 427 Competition 377 rear end with original rear end cooler and pumps.
