The CSX 8000 (289 Street Car) is an authentic continuation of the Cobra that shook the sports car world in 1962. Available as a fiberglass bodied component vehicle, the car offers a thrilling driving experience that is as authentic as the Cobras built 40 years ago.

The authenticity of each CSX 8000 is documented by Shelby CSX numbers and a manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO) from Shelby American.

Because we are an authorized Shelby Automobiles dealership, when you order your authentic Shelby Cobra, with official CSX VIN & Badge Number, you're assured a seamless purchase, build and delivery program. In fact, our turn-key operation makes it easier than ever for you to own an original Shelby Cobra CSX 8000 with the options you want!

When you're ready to order, you simply tell us whether you want the aluminum or fiberglass body and the color. When the component body arrives at Planet Shelby Cobra from the Shelby Factory, our world-class technicians go to work to breathe life into your Cobra with the high performance engine/drivetrain of your choice.
