Daytona Coupe 65

Daytona 65

The Daytona Coupe (also referred to as the Daytona Cobra Coupe) is an American sports-coupé related to the AC roadster, loosely based on its chassis and drive-train. It was built for auto racing, specifically to take on Ferrari and

its 250 GTO in the GT class.

Just The Orginals "Six Shelby Daytona Coupes" were built between 1964 and 1965, as Mr Shelby was reassigned to the Ford GT40 project to compete at the 24 hours of Le Mans, again to beat Ferrari in the highest level prototype class. With the  Daytona, 

Mr Shelby became the first American constructor to win a title on the international scene at the FIA World Sportscar Championship in 1965. The Daytona Class of Vehicle has recently been chosen for historic preservation as a significant vehicle in the history of auto racing.
