For Sale: 1966 Shelby Cobra in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1966 Shelby Cobra Replica is a serious speed machine with the best in everything you need in a Cobra. It has all the right pieces, including a performance-built V8, strong five-speed, and race-ready style over every inch. Plus, there are just the right elements of added flair to make it as fun to show as it is to drive.


The blue has a deep and dark tone that makes you understand it's a meaner machine. But there's also a clearcoat luster with a nice metallic element of a true classic. It radiates nicely in the sunshine with all the chrome pieces to make a great impression. It gets the vintage Cobra details right, like the quick-jack bumpers, hood scoop, roll hoop, racing gas cap, and Halibrand-style wheels. And those silver racing stripes were painted on top to make sure the race-ready style is a lasting one. With clean glass and good body lines, this one delivers the right feeling you want in a quality replica of an icon. But part of the Cobra's mystique is that it gets to own the asphalt, and so the overall finish will never make you too nervous to drive it.


The interior has a clean black style that wants to get down to speedy business. In fact, the sale even comes with a racing tonneau to go over the passenger seat. You have low-back bucket seats, full racing harnesses, a proper Cobra shifter, and a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel. Plus, the dash is dominated by crisp Auto meter gauges, including the Cobra-correct reverse speedo and tach. Even with this competition-focused attitude, there are some nice extras, like the well-finished doors with map pockets, full plush carpeting - including the trunk, and an iPod cable for a direct hookup to an amp and speakers


The engine bay has the same level of added distinction as the rest of this car. So you have nice details like the bold blue Ford block, a Carroll Shelby signature branded air grabber, Shelby ribbed valve covers, and an overall tidy style. The specs we were told on the build include the 351 Cleveland V8 was bored .040 over to 410ci total. It was fortified with a Scat steel crank, Scat forged I-beams, Icon forged pistons, Mahle rings, Clevite 77 bearings, a Comp Cams Mutha Thumpr hydraulic camshaft, and more. It also has the right supporting pieces, like an MSD ignition, a Melling timing chain, and a Milodon oil pan. The dual-line Holley double pumper is mounted on an Edelbrock intake and lets the motor inhale deeply, and we know you'll love the growl as it exhales out of the side pipes. This V8 does a great job of moving the lightweight fiberglass body, and you can stay in the powerband with ease thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. The tubular A-arm front suspension, strong boxed steel frame supports, thick rear sway bar, adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes all come together for quite a competent sports roadster.


This is the Cobra that delivers on the right iconic style and details while also giving you the proper big power feel. So don't let this deal slip away, call today!
