Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to represent this Street Beast 1967 Shelby AC Cobra Replica! The AC Cobra, sold in the United States as the Shelby Cobra and AC Shelby Cobra, is a sports car manufactured by British company AC Cars, with a Ford V8 engine. It was produced intermittently in both the United Kingdom and later the United States since 1962. In September 1961, American retired race car driver and automotive designer Carroll Shelby wrote to AC asking if they would build him a car modified to accept a V8 engine. Bristol engines for the AC Ace two-seater sports car had recently been discontinued so AC agreed, provided a suitable engine could be found. Shelby went to Chevrolet to see if they would provide him with engines, but not wanting to add competition to the Corvette they said no. However, Ford wanted a car that could compete with the Corvette and they happened to have a new engine which could be used in this endeavor: the Windsor 3.6-litre (221 cu in) engine - a new lightweight, thin-wall cast small-block V8.This particular Street Beast kit is powered by a 351ci Cleveland V8 that has been Bored and Stroked to 393ci with forged internals and roller rocker heads. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec 5-Speed Manual Transmission. Under the body of this Street Beast replica is entirely Mustang II suspension and this replica drives out great! Finished in gorgeous Orange Metallic paint over custom Tan Leather interior, this attention getter is sure to get you noticed! We encourage you to ask about build documentation and rebuild records! If you are in the market for for a Cobra Replica, this Street Beast kit is sure to make you look like a million bucks!
