Here's a clip from the seller's listing describing a bit of the cars well documented history: (Visit Legendary Motorcars Website for the full listing)

Billed to Shelby American on July 18, 1966 before being invoiced to Hayward Ford in Hayward, California a few months later on October 31, CSX3293 arrived in the same livery it appears in today, red with black interior. Believed to be the first proprietor of the beautiful Cobra, Bob Schiro of Santa Clara, California kept the car until 1968 when it was sold to Bruce Canepa, also of Santa Clara. Mr. Canepa actually drove the car daily for several years, enjoying the experience of a 427 Cobra no doubt made even the worst of work days disappear on the drive home!! By 1988 the Cobra ended up in the hands of Mr. Steve Burnett in Newport Beach California when he took it to a local California shop to have some freshening performed on the car after its many years of use and enjoyment. Just two years later the car was offered for sale with only 17,560 miles on it...
