Vehicle Description

JUST REDUCED: Ford's strong racing history is a prime example of why these cars are on the road today and are so desirable by the masses. With a style and sound unlike any other vehicle on the road, the Shelby Cobra has become an American icon. Many companies over the years have brought to market “continuation cars” modeled after the originals. This well done Cobra by Classic Roadsters Ltd is a fantastic recreation with proper looks and sound. As the car’s third owner since produced and having spent over $4,500 in the past 6 months on items to enhance the driving feel as well as to get a few more horses out of the engine. The monster 351W crate engine has an intoxicating sound and feel, partnered with Mustang aluminum SVO headers and rolling rockers. New Edelbrock HP water pump and 650CFM carburetor give a great look and some extra power. The proven Tremec T10 transmission shifts with ease and engages quickly in all 5 gears and reverse. The 8.8 rear end carries 355 gear ratio that provides lots of low end power but gives you a very nice highway cruiser in 5th gear. Some of the other upgrades or new parts in past months include; Summit Racing rear axles, seals and bearings, new electric fuel pump and regulator, new rear springs and control arms, new Flaming River rack and pinion steering and tie rod ends, new visors, plugs, voltage regulator, throttle cable, alignment, steering wheel, 15in Halibran knockoff wheels with meaty BF Goodrich tires. Many other little items have been done and this car is in great shape and runs strong and feels great to drive. VDO gauges complete the look with working stereo, wipers, heater and lights. Vehicle's paint is crisp and has straight lines with bold white stripes. Vintage correct bumpers, steering wheel, roll bar and exhaust make this a bold statement for the owner. The market has taken off on these vehicles and new ones are becoming unattainable, this gives the looks, feel and value that you have always cherished.
