Cobra ERA 427
WICKED FAST COBRA, 427 SIDE OILER W/ DUAL QUADS, 4 SP MAN., FULL IND. SUSP, WOW!
This 1966 Shelby Cobra has the best of everything – an original-style presentation, fully independent suspension, and the huge power of a 427 side-oiler under the hood. And if you're been looking at Cobras, you know these features usually cost a ton more.
This one makes a great first impression. Details like the bright tubular bumpers, single chrome roll hoop, and Halibrand-style wheels with true knock-off spinners make this ERA replica look quite correct for an original Cobra. Even the condition of the Rangoon Red paint and the body give it the feeling of a car that dominated the track in the '60s. We're not saying that this Cobra is out to fool anyone that it's a million-dollar original. But the way the side pipes are finished in matte black instead of most car's shiny chrome means this one commands a different kind of respect from enthusiasts.
The same admiration happens in the interior with low-back buckets, racing seatbelts, and a removable bracer bar. You get the full Cobra experience with the three spoke AC wood steering wheel and the Mustang shift lever that's been reversed to fit the driver perfectly. And the full SW gauge package means you're in constant contact with the motor. There's no radio, no power windows, no A/C – this is a competition machine that's all about the driving experience and nothing else needs to get in the way.
What's under the hood makes this Cobra one of the fastest cars we have in our showroom today. There are few more menacing motors out there than the Ford's race-developed 427 side-oiler V8. And having it in this Cobra only contributes to its period-correct presentation. It has been upgraded with a 428 crank (actual displacement closer to 454 cubic inches.) It has been further enhanced with dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors, aluminum heads, MSD ignition, aluminum radiator w/electric fan, and headers that feed those roaring side pipes. The total power package is rated between 575 and 600 horsepower. Best of all, you are in complete control of this big powerhouse and its thunderous sound thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. And because you're going to want to enjoy this Cobra more than just in a straight line, it has all the right suspension components. This includes a fully-independent setup, featuring a Jaguar coilover rear end w/inboard brakes. There's also four-wheel disc brakes and huge rear tires to keep this huge horsepower under complete control.
If you still need convincing how much of a mean speed machine this is, we'll even show you a clipping from Hot Rod Magazine. And the sooner you understand how much power and poise you get for such a nice price, the sooner you'll also realize that you need to hurry to grab this high-horsepower deal. Call today!!!
