Post CSX cancellation rumor

I heard a rumor form a Shelby insider that in Ocotober all csx sales will cease, meaning never again will the glass or aluminum csx4000/6000 will be offered for sale, is this true, anyone hear anything like this, I was aware of the no more orders taken, but I thought that was just because of lack of cars.

IF this is true, then the question one would subsequently ask himself is:

Is a CSX at $140k twice as good as a Kirkham at $70k?

The answer for me is a no-bainer... Kirkham all the way

Its true, just found out from a authorized Shelby dealer, thats why I ordered a Kirkham, and still have 80g left over for a house, there both good cars seeing they are the same, with the nod going to Kirkham due to the billet suspension, most of the new csx cars I have seen use the Kirkham suspension over original, and they still pay more to have it badged a shelby.

I saw 3 in Vegas last week, they were all full race cars and personally owned, Tom Barnard also uses the Kirkham stuff at his shop when they want a better track car, 2 of the 3 cars had winsdor engines, the other was a FE.

For clarification, CSX sales continue, in both Aluminum and fiberglass.

There was a temporary new order hold.

Yes there was a price increase as reflected in the posts.

Apparently you think not but I will disagree. I got excellent service from Shelby American on my roller. I needed some door and hood shims and Tony sent them to me no charge. I even got a superb re-paint on my door as a result of a rock ding where the paint work was done by HST. I have no complaints about Shelby's role in my car.

Thanks for piping in Roger... Rumors get out of hand...

The price hike wasnt a rumor, and I wanted someone from shelby to chime in at how high the price has gotten. I basically had to ask in person when I go to vegas because nobody would answer the cancellation rumor, it was like it was some secrete, no body wanted to give an answer. Finally thanks.

So, is the pricing $140K and $80K for complete (turn-key) cars? I ask because when I purchased my CSX 4000 in 1997, they were describing a "rolling chasis" as a complete vehicle without engine, transmission, drive shaft and batteries.

These are prices for rollers (e.g., sans engine and transmission).

I am not aware of any new CSX car orders being placed this year since the double-price increase in January

Hey Stephen,

Are the 10 CSX cars (that you currently have listed for sale) the first car orders placed since the double-price increase? Just to confirm, the price for a fiberglass car starts at $80K, plus the price of engine and trans. Is this correct?

Thanks for clarifiying.

Mike

Is the "double-price increase" anything like "double-secret probation"?

Welcome, from Carroll Shelby

Have you noticed that it's tough finding quality performance parts to build a reliable FE engine? I have and I decided to do something about it by introducing my own line of Shelby FE™ performance parts. I worked with my design staff to build the best, because my name is on them. My racing legacy with FE performance engines extends back to my race winning 427 Cobras and GT-40 Mk.IV racers that won LeMans. Three decades later, my newer Shelby FE™ parts utilize proven design refinement to create FE performance parts for the new millennium.

My catalog illustrates an overall selection of parts available, but we can supply complete engines or parts from oil pan to carburetor to build your own Shelby 427 FE™ aluminum or cast iron engine just the way you want it. Call and speak directly to our engine department with your tech questions and orders. You have my name on it.

~ Carroll Shelby
