CSX4942 was completed at the Shelby American plant in November of 2007, near the end of the Shelby Continuation Series Cobra production, as a 427 S/C model with fiberglass bodywork. The Shelby-issued Statement of Origin lists Performance Auto Group LLC of Summit, NJ, as the original purchaser.

The new Cobra was finished as seen today, sporting a classic silver metallic exterior over the optional black leather interior. It was fitted with all the correct 427 S/C features; sidepipe exhaust, quick-jack lifting points instead of bumpers, a paperclip-style roll bar, wide Halibrand-style alloy wheels and a quick-filler gas cap placed prominently atop the right rear fender. The engine choice was a balanced and blueprinted 427 FE, fitted with aluminum heads, headers and nearly every performance upgrade available, and installed by the noted Shelby specialists at HRE Motorcars.

This vehicle is titled as a model year 1965.
