The Shelby 427 S/C Cobra…

CSX3040, A 1966 Shelby 427 S/C Cobra

...is the most beautiful car I’ve ever seen. I first laid eyes one as a teen while at the Watkins Glen Vintage Grand Prix. Its combination of a low, elongated body, long hood, and short rear deck created a visually striking and balanced appearance. The design was simple… unadorned lines and a lack of unnecessary embellishments. And although I found it a thing a beauty, I could tell it was a performance machine.
