For Sale: 1985 Shelby Cobra in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1985 Shelby Cobra (Kellison Stallion) Titled as 1985 Kellison Stallion completely restored. Shelby Cobra restored Kellison Stallion! Full frame car not a kit! 6" wider and 6" longer than a cobra. I have the convertible top etc and some extra original parts. Registered in California in 1985 but never driven. She's a beauty. Added New Pioneer AVC8500 CarPlay Navigation Radio System. I had to use 1980 Ford because eBay has no knowledge of a Kellison Stallion and the California VIN wouldn't go thru so I had to change year to 1980 Ford. This is titled as 1985 Kellison Stallion. Much better car than the Shelby Kit Cars, more sturdy and Full Frame, Bigger wheel well for bigger tires...Very Solid Body and Very well framed for strength, it's the Cadillac of Cobras. This car was basically new and had been left out in the elements. During restoration discovered motor and all unexposed components were like new.Also have the Cobra emblems for hood & trunk. This is the most solid well built cobra ever built. Even has Steel framework in the doors to protect passengers from side impact. Full steel Frame that would be fit for an F250 truck. Check the picture of the frame, but mine is black not red... Jim Kellison shut down his company in 1970, but soon missed the car business. In 1976, he introduced his own version of the Cobra replica, built by his new company, Eagle American Racing (later Red Stallion Ltd. ). The Stallion was longer and wider than an original Cobra, and had a very sturdy frame to take the power and weight of a big 429ci Ford engine. Only a very few had the 351 Cleveland installed. The front suspension was based on Ford parts, as was the 9-inch Ford live axle in back. There were three brake options, with one being racing discs all around. The body was subtly massaged, with a 'droop' nose, egg-crate grille, and doorbars for more protection. They were sold in kit and turnkey form, with new or rebuilt parts. Eagle built a reported 117 before Kellison sold out.
