(Before It's News)

 

On September 7, 1965 CSX 3015 was shipped and invoiced to Ford Advanced Vehicles and sometime early to mid 1967, Carroll Shelby transformed CSX 3015 into the ‘Super Snake’ – one of the most impressive automobiles ever built. The CSX 3015 is a full Competition Roadster, still retaining its original body with its 1967 aluminum ‘Super Snake’ hood.

The Super Snake has a monstrous 427cid, 800hp twin Paxton supercharged V8 with a super three-speed automatic transmission. In addition to use as his personal automobile, Shelby drove the Cobra in a running of the “Turismos Visitadores” in Nevada. In February 1968, Road & Track referred to CSX3015 as ”The Cobra to End All Cobras.” 

As history shows, CSX 3015 is one of two Super Snake Cobras built. The other being CSX 3303 built for Bill Cosby. Sadly, it’s next owner destroyed himself and the CSX 3303 by driving off a cliff and into the Pacific Ocean.

Carroll Shelby’s personal 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake was designed and built solely for the racing legend.
