N2-06 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 Dragonsnake
This is one of two factory-prepared Cobra 289 Dragonsnakes, a high performance Cobra marketed by Shelby American. Six others were ordered by private teams. Costing over $8,000 more than the standard Cobra, they were designed to maximize straight-line drag racing performance. This car (CSX2357) was heavily modified and set both AHRA and NHRA records in the A/Sports class. It also won the 1965 Phoenix Winter Nationals in a duel with a privately owned Dragonsnake (CSX2248).
