While it’s normally parked at the Shelby American Museum in Las Vegas, CSX2000 was part of the Ford display at the 2011 SEMA Show to help celebrate the company’s 110th year in racing. It is in original, unrestored condition, its age most visible in the torn leather upholstery on the tiny bucket seats. It is a remarkable time capsule, still equipped with its original 260ci engine, four-speed transmission, and wire wheels.
