This outstanding Cobra is equipped with the mighty 427 Tunnel Port Side Oiler FE motor, and is documented in the Shelby American Registry which reads:
Invoiced to Shelby American on 11/28/66. Shelby invoice #3586, dated 5/31/67, billed Hi-Performance Motors (El Segundo, CA) for the car: "1966 Cobra, Green, CSX3336, $6,145.00," plus an additional charge of $20 "for additional striping requested by Ray Wolfe." (It is thought that the additional striping was a 2" wide white band around the nose opening.) A second invoice was sent to Hi-Performance on 6/19/67, for "additional billing to cover change in price of 427 cobra, Serial number CSX3336, $350." It was said that 3336 was purchased from Hi-Performance by the son of the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Claude Le Brun. Apparently the car went to Mexico for several weeks before being brought to Texas, where it sold to Hemphill-McCombs Ford (San Antonio, TX). In the late summer of ’67, the car was purchased by an owner who rebuilt it for drag-racing. Fitted with a 427 tunnel port, a tall hood scoop, custom side pipes which exited the body at an angle less than an inch below the side vents and rear slicks mounted on Sunburst wheels, 3336 was campaigned in the southwest as "The Ravager" in AHRA events, becoming a national record holder with a 10.93 secs @128.9 mph run. The car was sold to Gary Baggs (Jacksonville, AL)in the ’70’s and was repainted Guardsman Blue while retaining the white stripe around its nose. W.R. Chandler (CA) acquired 3336 in 1/78 and gave it a complete restoration. The aluminum was stripped to bare metal and repainted Guardsman Blue with an added oil cooler scoop; the 427 tunnel port engine with dual 4’s was rebuilt, balanced, and blueprinted; and factory-type side pipes and a driver’s roll bar, both black, were installed.
Detailed and extensive documentation is included with the purchase of this stunning 427 Cobra. Please take a moment during auction preview to peruse these rare and significant articles and documents.
