Default Tracking down a CSX car

My neighbor has an EM unfinished in his garage.When I stopped in to talk about it, he tells me he had an original cobra. I don't doubt him but I would like to check out the cars past owners if possible and tell him what happened to his car. So can someone give me some info on CSX2252? Anytime I Google the number all I get are trains!

You're one step a head of me... I've been trying to find my bosses CSX that he owned in the 70's. He doesn't remember the chassis number and I've hit a dead end unless he can find something with the chassis number. At least, you have a number to look up.

The Shelby World Registry says the following (abbreviated). Invoiced on 3/20/1964 to R.R.R. Motors (Homewood, IL) at a cost of $5,195. Earliest known owner was Robert Radford who put it in storage in 1967. Sold in 1975 to Robert White. In 1977 purchased by Calvin Nikki and then sold it to Bob Perry. Ed Waterman purchased the car in 1978 and restored it (had rear end damage). Tony McCrary purchased the car and in 1981 it was up for sale again and purchased by Scott McGilvray of Dallas Mustang Parts.

Thanks for the history on this car.I don't see my neighbors name listed as an owner. I'll have to check a little deeper and see whats up! This MIGHT be a case of "I had a real one"

Thanks again for the info!
