1965 Shelby 427 Competition Cobra

Chassis #CSX 3010

The 427 Competition Cobras, of which only 23 were ever produced, made more than 600 horsepower as compared to the street version’s 425. It also received more than 100 other modifications for racing duty, including a roll bar, oil and differential coolers, heavy-duty front and rear disc brakes and a 42-gallon fuel tank. This full-competition example, chassis #3010, is the tenth of the 23 competition cars built, and was campaigned in SCCA regional events in New England in 1965 and ’66. In 1967, the car was sold to Peter Consiglio of Worcester, Massachusetts. In his rookie season in 1968, he raced a national SCCA schedule in A Production and earned the points to qualify for the national title at the American Road Race of Champions (ARRC) in Riverside, California, at the end of the season, which he won. He then sold the car to John Risley of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Risley and partner David Fram campaigned the Cobra in Canada, finishing first overall in the Eastern Canadian Endurance Championship in 1971, making chassis #3010 the only 427 Cobra to have won championships in two countries.
