According to the Shelby Registry, CSX2549 is one of fewer than 20 C4-equipped Cobra 289s, only a few of which are known to remain extant today. The car was bought in 1988 by automotive journalist Jerry Heasley of Plano, Texas. A devoted Cobra enthusiast, Heasley wrote about his Cobra in numerous magazine articles over several years. During his ownership he commissioned Wayne Davis to refinish the car in the original Silver. It has since become part of the Don Davis Collection, this well-documented beauty still retains its original no-hit aluminum body, Red seat covers, 6-inch chrome wire wheels and today remains one of the most original automatic-equipped Cobras in existence.
