Description

Lot #1275 - Blue with Wimbledon White LeMans stripes. Highly accurate Cobra 427 roadster continuation with Shelby American CSX chassis. This Cobra originates as a painted rolling chassis from Shelby American, Inc., with a Carroll Shelby-signed MSO listing it as a 1965 Cobra. This specific example has been finished to appear outwardly as a highly original car, but with internal upgrades. The engine was built with an original Ford side oiler 427 block, forged internals and new correct medium riser cylinder heads. Modern engine building techniques have bumped the output from the original 425hp to an engine dyno proven 495+hp while using a mild cam to maintain excellent street manners and excellent low end torque, yet still pulling strong to 6,000+rpm. The engine has been dressed with many correct parts, including Aviaid oil pan, sandcast Cobra valve covers, medium riser intake, LeMans carburetor and turkey pan air box. Power runs through an original-style, blueprinted TKO 600 5-speed with treated gears and rated for 800hp. The car also features original-style swept forward shifter, horn button, Raydyot mirrors and Lucas headlight to add to overall aesthetic authenticity. Car is listed in the SAAC (Shelby American Automobile Club) Cobra Registry.
