Created beginning with a Hunter (of Florida) kit, the car was professionally hand-built in 2005 with full component customization and given a Michigan Assembled Identification Number. The car is 100% street-legal and very much trackable; it has dynoed at 525 horsepower. The odometer currently registers 1,670 miles since its creation. The measure of any Shelby Cobra replica can only be fully taken by an appreciation of the details of the specific build. In that context, consider these components: - Hand-built tubular frame - Ford 429-cubic-inch D1ve block - Full roller valve train - 10.5:1 Compression bored over - Edelbrock® Performer RPM aluminum heads - Stealth® high-rise intake - Demon® 850 CFM carburetor - SD® Pro Billet distributor - MSD® 6a ignition system - MSD Blaster 2 coil - MSD High Energy wiring - Tremec® TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission - Hydraulic racing clutch - Ford 9-inch narrowed rear end with Detroit locker 4 11 gears, with triangulated 4-link suspension built and installed by stock-car racing legend, Johnny Benson, Sr. - QA1® adjustable coil-over suspension at all four corners - C4 Corvette front control arms - Adjustable front sway bar - Howe Racing® 4-wheel disc brakes and calipers - Front-to-rear proportioning valve - Griffin® aluminum radiator - Dual electric cooling fans - Aluminum fuel cell - Tilton® race pedals - 4-point Sparco® safety harnesses - Push-button front wheel-line lock doubl;es as a parking brake - Tilt steering wheel - Removable lift-off hood - Gel-coated fiberglass body painted in base coat/clearcoat The exterior finish on the Cobra is exceptional: perfectly glossy, smooth-as-glass, with racing stripes flawlessly incorporated. The two colors offer the perfect, subtle hint of contrast to one another. All chrome-including bumper bars, light trim, side-exhaust pipes, windshield surround, and 3-point roll bar-is in excellent condition, as is the brushed-metal trim on the front fender vents and racing side mirrors.
