Csx 7000 Fia 50Th Anniversary Cobra On Order


Recommended Posts

The number is CSX7989 sold at the Mecum Denver Auction last month apparently. Description says " Reconstructed branding on title". Went for $110k. Looked a little dusty as well.

UPDATE:   The roller is about to be finished up in South Africa and will be shipped to 'Vegas soon. Here are some pictures. BTW, it is CSX7972.

Thanks all, not sure when it will be mated with the roller (which should have made it to 'Vegas by now), but hopefully before the fall.

As my salesman said: "Good things come to those who wait"……..

Hmmm, That's pretty top dollar for a salvage, so maybe it isn't. If it were a Colorado title, it might be. Mine was registered as a 1965 Shelby Cobra with no special designation. I wonder if "reconstructed" really means "special construction", ie, "kit car". [Review the Mecum list and there is another Cobra in the Denver top 10 list that does specify "special construction". For sure I would have wanted clarification of what that designation means in the state in which the title was issued.]

I Googled the DMV website and it looks like Reconstructed branding is used only when wrecked, flooded, fire, etc (totaled). But can't be sure. I was told by Hilbank Motors that a similar CSX car sold at Hillbank for $165k recently. So it might make sense.

It doesn't say what state the title was from though. If it were CA the car would have been registered under SB100 and had "special construction" and the SB100 sticker. But the price on a CSX7000 anniversary car is very low so I still suspect it was wrecked.

Thanks for the insight. I think it must have been damaged. Looks like the word branding means attaching a permanent sticker indicating the car was salvaged (like branding a horse), Reconstruction must mean it was rebuilt.
