This car is very rare, very fast, and very well done. So be sure to
check out the binder full of documentation that includes the Marti
Report, the original invoice, the factory build sheet, and
Sunlit Gold is not only a beautiful color, it's one you don't see
too often and is the factory correct code 3073-A color for this
car. The fenders, quarters, and floor pans are all original and the
paintjob is a very well executed BC/CC with restoration photos
documenting the job nicely. Correct Shelby GT500 badging starts up
front with Shelby in letters. Fog lights are set in the grill and
all the chrome trim as well as the bumper shines bright. The hood
has a big double scoop to gather up air for the beast within, is
held down with twisting hood pins, and has vents to let the hot air
out. There is a Shelby Cobra on the front fender and GT500 stripes
in white along the rockers. The view from the rear is unique Shelby
with six chamber sequential taillights on each side of a Cobra gas
cap with Shelby in script on the trunk lid and dual chrome exhaust
tips peeking out from under the bumper. The car sits on the dealer
optional 10 spoke wheels with Cobra centers and fresh Cooper Cobra
Open the door and you will find the code 6F Saddle Decor group
interior that compliments the Sunlit Gold nicely. The door panel
sets the theme in a two-tone treatment with a woodgrain panel
trimmed in chrome piping and ribbed chrome dresses out the bottom.
The original and correct two-spoke steering wheel with a Shelby
center is mounted on a swing-away column. The dash is stock and
super clean with a wood grain upper with all the chrome trim and
controls looking good and shining bright. Ventilation controls
include those for the factory optional "Selectaire" air
conditioning which was only available in conjunction with the
automatic transmission. So, the T-handle for that trans rises out
of a beautiful wood grain center console that includes Stewart
Warner gauges for oil pressure and charging amperage at the front
with a nice Cobra armrest on top of the storage compartment. The
seats are freshly recovered and the factory roll bar sports the
original, and matching, shoulder harnesses.
Open the hood and you will find whats believed to be a period
correct 428 Police Interceptor engine nestled down in an engine bay
as nicely restored and detailed out as the outside of the car. It
starts with the oval Cobra air cleaner sitting on top of the
correct style Holley 4-barrel carburetor. A C7AE cast iron intake
sends the mixture to a date correct engine along with Cobra LeMans
crinkle finish finned valve covers that help keep the oil cool.
Original exhaust manifolds get the spent gasses out and power flows
back through that C6 automatic trans to the traction-lok rear end.
The chassis is nicely painted and detailed out too and all the
suspension components are new with period correct chalk markings.
Power steering and power front disc brakes assure that you can
maneuver and stop this car easily and effectively and the rubber
meets the road through 325/60R15s mounted on those gorgeous
Very desirable and nicely restored with extensive documentation.
