Description

Lot #735 - Outfitted with the proper 1960s 427 side oiler, these Cobras are capable of 0-60 runs in under three seconds and 10-second quarter-mile times. Performance figures on par with contemporary supercars. The Shelby Cobra presented here is absolutely brand-new and is ready to hit the road. Offered directly from Stephen Becker's Planet Shelby Cobra, a factory-authorized Cobra dealer and Shelby American mod shop with over 35 years of experience and considered one of the leading experts on Shelby cars. It is fully documented with a copy of the original MSO signed by Carroll Shelby himself. His distinctive signature plaque also graces the console. Special-ordered Shelby American color commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Shelby at LeMans, the fiberglass body is strikingly finished in the LeMans Blue with Wimbledon White LeMans stripes, a particularly iconic color and one that complements this performance icon very well. It's all there, from the distinctive Halibrand wheels to the classic wood-rimmed steering wheel ? this CSX 6000 car is fitted with nearly every available factory option. Power is provided by the rare and period-correct mid-1960s vintage Ford 427ci side-oiler V8 motor that sports medium-riser aluminum heads and a Shelby-style side-winder intake, producing an earth-shattering 500hp on standard super unleaded pump gas.
