Cobra CSX2128 is famous for being on the Rip Cords’ “Hey Little Cobra” album cover."

The 1963 Sebring Cobras were the first to use rack and pin-ion steering and the 289 engine. Recognizable by its unique yellow striping and a cut-away driver's door, CSX 2128 raced as a Shelby American factory team car from 3/63-7/63.

Sold to Coventry Motors, the cars success during the remainder of the 1963 season prompted Shelby American to buy it back for the 1964 season. Campaigned under three different configurations, this workhorse was among the most successful of the factory team Cobras.

Dave MacDonald turns onto the front straight during the 1963 USRRC race at Laguna Seca. MacDonald was now a factory Shelby driver and would prove to be as fast or faster than the other team drivers. Dave Friedman photo.

Man, remember that photo in the R&T coverage of the '64 Targa Floria of one of the factory Cobras drifting around that uphill bend with the brick wall? What a great shot!
