EXCELLENT PAINT, 302 V8, 5 SPEED MANUAL, CORVETTE SUSPENSION, 4 WHL DISCS, NICE
When a 1967 Shelby Cobra replica is this well-built and has all the right features (including a freshly built 302 V8), well then, desirability is a guarantee. The amazing paint, and affordable price, is just what's going to make you act quickly to grab this one before some one else discovers it.
You could build a replica yourself, but why bother investing a small fortune if the price is right, and the body looks this good (and we haven't even talked about the drivetrain)? This is a complete, and super-straight, roadster finished in a Charcoal Gray that's so fresh you may have dairy products in your fridge that are older than this professional respray. The overall effect is a super shiny package on this American racing icon that's only reinforced by the bright push bumpers in front, and classic tube rear bumper. Details like the knock-off style wheels, driver roll hoop, and wide fender flares, suggest that it was built for combat, and the hardware underneath backs up this assumption. But even if you don't turn a wheel on the track, it's certain to turn heads on the street.
The interior definitely gets the Shelby attitude right with wrap-around buckets, and the three spoke wood steering wheel. The gear stick has been bent forward for improved comfort, and there are power outlets to plug in any essentials (ya know, like a radar detector.) The full AutoMeter gauge package is critical if you're using your Cobra on the track, but if not, they also just look like cool representations of the Cobra's original Smiths readout package. There's no radio, no heater, no A/C – this was built with driving in mind, and it's all about the driving experience and nothing else needs to get in the way.
Speaking of the driving experience, the best part of a Cobra is always under the hood. This one is powered by a Ford's legendary 302 cubic-inch V8 that was rebuilt less than 750 miles ago. It's been dressed nicely with the correct Cobra air filter, and finned valve covers. Beyond just looking good, the motor makes some serious power by inhaling through a four-barrel carburetor, and exhaling deeply through the powder-coated side pipes. This V8 does a great job of moving the lightweight fiberglass body, and you can stay in the powerband with ease thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Of course, power is nothing without control. That's why this Cobra comes with an aluminum independent front and rear suspension package, borrowed from a Corvette. It's backed up by a four-wheel disc brake package, connected to wide BF Goodrich tires. But as much as this seems like the perfect racecar, there is another side to this Cobra. With power steering, and a versatile 3.54 rear end, connected to the overdrive transmission, this roadster might also be the perfect way to be seen cruising on a Saturday night.
It's hard not to get excited about a Cobra that's a great package for the street and the strip. It only gets better once you see the full binder or maintenance and restoration records - including nearly $5K in recent service. Call today!!
