Description
 
No car guys bucket list is complete without a Shelby Cobra. You could rattle off 50 other cars and youd still get an incomplete without one. Its the most recognizable sports car ever built, and faithful copies can be found at every price point from DIY kits to high-end builds like this black and burgundy car here. If youve sat in a Cobra and felt cramped, youre not alone. Stretched four inches, this Lone Star Classics LS427 roadster fits taller drivers and makes guys who fit into regular Cobras even more comfortable. In addition, the longer wheelbase increases ride quality, so its a total win-win. Assembly was handled by North Dallas Motorsports, a full service shop that specializes in 32 Ford and Cobra builds, and their quality is evident in both the fiberglass body and the finish work by sighting down the sides. Metallic Cadillac Diamond Black covers the body while Corvette Crystal Red is the perfect accent color for the famous stripes. A lone chrome roll hoop is classic, as is the quick release fuel cap, plus jacking points front and rear that look race-ready, and that trick Talbot-style mirror. Take a look at the pictures again and try to convince yourself that you dont want this car...we dare you. Inside youve got a pair of leather seats in an all-business cabin. G-Force racing harnesses hold you in place while a Grant steering wheel on a tilt column (again, for great access for taller drivers) swiftly takes in all of your commands. Full VDO instrumentation lets you know exactly whats going on in the engine compartment. Stretching the wheelbase also allows the engine and transmission to be moved forward slightly, which enables the short throw Hurst shifter to be in a far more natural position. The 220 miles on the odometer is since it was completed, practically making this a brand new car! The Wilwood pedals use triple master cylinders with dual reservoirs for the front and rear brakes, and the bias is adjustable, just like in a race car. A Lokar gas pedal is the only entertainment system youll find or need in a car like this. Under the hood is a 302 cubic inch crate engine with a ton of great parts and 375 horsepower. Lurking below the classic oval air cleaner (with a KN filter) is an Edelbrock carburetor and Performer RPM intake. Performer RPM heads take orders from the Comp Cams hydraulic bumpstick through Comp roller rockers, while Taylor 8mm wires are fed by an all-in-one electronic distributor. The compression ratio is 9.5:1, which will happily run on pump gas and doesnt get cranky in traffic. The engine was assembled by the Cobra motor experts at the Engine Factory in New Jersey, and theyre regularly used by Lone Star in their own builds, so its a stout piece that sounds great and runs hard. The chassis is another strong point of the LS427. The front suspension consists of tubular control arms while a Currie built 9-inch rear axle hanging from a four link is out back. QA1 adjustable coil overs are at all four corners, as are Wilwood disc brakes. A Z-spec T5 five-speed manual transmission is a great match for the 302 under the hood, and the overdrive is welcome on cruises. Gorgeous 17-inch wheels fill the wheel wells thanks to 275/40/17 front and 315/35/17 rear Nitto radials. You couldnt build this awesome Cobra for our asking price, and even if you could youd have to wait. This car is incredible, its professionally built, it looks great, and you can drive it home today.
