1965 427 Super Coupe Cobra - The Daytona “Super Coupe” was supposed to be the next version of the Daytona Coupe. But when Ford pulled the plug on Shelby’s racing efforts, the Super Coupe came to a screeching halt. Henry Ford II was dumping MILLIONS into the GT40 program looking to stick-it to Enzo Ferrari over the failed buyout/takeover of Ferrari in the early ‘60s. So why would Ford want to support Shelby’s Daytona Super Coupe? It would have been competition for the GT40. That’s factory racing for you.
So the Super Coupe was never finished until 1979 when it was purchased as a restoration project. It was more like a completion project. Pete Brock was consulted in the restoration/completion and supplied the team with a complete list of how he and Shelby had intended the car to be completed. The restoration/completion team hit every point on the list and completed the project in 1981.
Since that time the Daytona Super Coupe has appeared at vintage car races. With contemporary tires, the Super Coupe looks like ONE TOUGH CUSTOMER.
