Each of our custom builds takes advantage of the world famous Indycar racing family of partners and builders in our area.

Great care and attention to detail was paid by Justin Kuhns of Legacy Motorsports to make this a true tribute to the legacy left behind by Carroll Shelby and his band of legends. There is less than 100 miles on this beautiful specimen of American Racing History, professionally built by men who are passionate about what we do. This car won the Runner Up award for Best of Show at the Indianapolis World of Wheels Car Show in February of 2019.
The Daytona Coupe was designed in 1964 by Peter Brock while he was working at Shelby American in Los Angeles. He and Shelby’s crew employed the frame of a damaged 289 Cobra roadster as a base. Cobra roadsters had run out of “top end” on the long tracks and a new aerodynamic body was needed to increase the competitiveness of Shelby’s team. The benefits of the new body were realized at Riverside when it beat the previous lap times on its first running—hitting over 180 mph [over 290 km/hr.] in the back straight. In 1965 the Coupe led the Cobra teams in capturing the FIA World Manufacturers Championship—wresting the cup from Ferrari for the first time in over a decade.
Only six original Coupes were built; each of those six originals is accounted for today in (very) exclusive private collections.
