performance drivingAnyone who's a fan of the Shelby Cobra knows that finding an original is a difficult task, indeed. From 1962 through 1968, Carroll Shelby only built 654 small-block Cobras, around 350 big-block Cobras, and 538 Mark II models in 1964. Because of their limited availability, original models of Shelby Cobras are few and far between -- and extremely pricey.

This is more than true for the Shelby Cobra CSX2104. As the 104th Shelby Cobra model built, this car has a traceable chain of ownership and a mileage count that is remarkably low. Among the owners was a woman named Rozella Ruch, a Hawaiian resident who had the car for 15 years, up until her death in 1987.

And the CSX2104 isn't only special for its low mileage and traceable lineage. In fact, the color of the model is 'Guardsman Blue'. According to classicdriver.com, the color was the very hue that Carroll Shelby adopted for his racing squadron, and was frequently seen on the Daytona Coupe models. With less than 10,000 miles on this belt, this car is an extremely desirable model of the performance driving vehicle, and will be on sale in mid-October at a show in Salzberg. The price tag? Up to 1.25 million Euros, or $1,430,537.50.

For those trying not to spend every last penny and then some on the performance driving vehicle of their dreams, there are other ways to procure a muscle car within your price range. Consider opting for authentic replication using a Cobra car kit.

Using a cobra kit, you can construct the ideal Shelby Cobra replication, making a "Corvette Beater" of your own. With authentic replication, one is able to have total control over the construction of their car, from engine to exterior. This way, the car of your dreams is both affordable and exactly what you wished for.
