At Le Mans in 1964, Ferrari entered four GTOs and the race featured a pitched battle between Shelby and Ferrari for the GT class. Drivers Gurney and Bondurant, clocked over 196 mph on the Mulsanne straight in CSX2299 and took First in the GT III class. Joe Schlesser drove it at Daytona in 1965, finishing between a pair of GT 40s to win its class and come in Second Overall. This helped the Shelby American team take the World Manufacturers Championship from Ferrari in 1965. CSX2299 is currently owned by Larry H. Miller and resides at the Miller Motorsports Park Museum in Tooele, UT.
