For sheer thrills on the road, nothing beats a Cobra. Built to look
traditional, this gorgeous blue Shelby replica was built in 2010
but is titled in Florida for 1967. So it delivers all of the
Cobra's legendary big V8 thrills and raw racecar handling in a much
more modern package.
The fiberglass experts at Antique and Collectable Autos know how to build a solid roadster. You can especially see it in the way the classic blue smoothly reflects the light over all the traditional European curves. And since Cobras always look naked without them, a set of slick gray stripes were added in the correct proportions. It was then trimmed with orange pinstripes, giving this roadster the look of having come right off the show field, not just the racing grid. This is a 60s-style street/track machine, so there are obligatory touches of brightwork. Some pieces are expected like the jacking stub bumpers and full roll hoop, but there are also places that were upgraded to standout like the shields for the side exhaust pipes and 17-inch torque thrust style wheels.
The bright sliver interior instantly highlights all the features that let you know this is a roadster for someone who still wants some creature comforts. It's fully trimmed inside, and you even have a great JVC AM/FM/CD receiver that also accepts USB and Bluetooth. But once you sit down in the race-ready bucket seat and strap down the four-point harness, you know this Cobra is instantly ready to get down to business. The three-spoke woodgrain steering wheel provides perfect grip for your left hand, and your right one may never want to leave the Hurst shifter. This is a pure motoring machine.
Under the hood is a strong 347 cubic-inch V8 with the great iconic Cobra valve covers and long Cobra air filter. This one inhales deeply with a Holley 650 four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock RPM intake. It exhales with authority through headers that feed the side pipes so you can hear this awesome V8 growl just as good as everyone else. But more than just a big power package, it has all the right reliable supporting components such as a MSD ignition, aluminum radiator, and an electric fan that's controlled by an interior toggle switch. Keeping all of this power under control is the five-speed manual transmission, power steering, Wilwood four-wheel disc brake package, and the grip of ZR rated tires. Best of all, the full package has barely been broken in with less than 6,400 miles on the whole build.
You've priced the replicas, and so you know what kind of deal this already is before you even see the super-straight body, enhanced V8, and extra creature comforts. That's why you know you have to hurry if you want to take this one home. Call today!!!
