BUILT 302 V8, T5 5SPD TRAN, VERY CLEAN IN/OUT, LOTS QUALITY DETAIL, SHARP COLORS
You stopped to look at this 1966 Shelby Cobra Replica because it has the right color combo and it's offered for quite a nice price. But as you dig deeper into this low mileage build, you're also going to discover a ton of great details, including the rare tri-power setup to this V8.
This Cobra gets the look right from the first impression. After all, Wimbledon White with blue stripes is a true American racing color theme - especially made famous by Shelby. This is a professional build that was completed less than 900 miles ago. That's why you can see all the great Cobra styling cues, including the sporty flared fenders, hood scoop, and a front air intake that's wide open so it looks like it wants to consume all lesser cars in such a clean and fresh way. This was really built to be a great original-style competition Cobra, and so you see that in the details, like the push bumpers, racing roll hoop, side pipes, and Halibrand-style knock-off wheels.
Inside the true vintage style continues. Classic racing bucket seats, a Mustang shifter tilted forward, and a wood and chrome steering wheel give you the true feeling of a vintage Cobra. The dash is even full of Smiths gauges with the speedometer correctly reversed. But if you look closely, there are also some tastefully, integrated, modern, touches. This includes the readouts have a digital odometer (telling you it's a more modern set,) and a Flaming River tilt steering column.
Under the hood is a clean 302 cubic-inch V8 that looks great, right down to the Cobra valve covers. But it's what's on top that should really have you intrigued. This is a triple set of dual-barrel Holley carburetors. More than just a cool tri-power setup, it's mounted on a Buddy Bar intake. Ford fans know this is a short run of stout parts that are worth $$$$ on its own. Plus, this V8 has been fortified and enhanced. It's a roller motor with flat top pistons, mild cam w/windage tray, Cobra oil pan, and a Griffin radiator to keep it running cool. It's a terrific performance package, and the growl of the side pipes really let everyone know it. Best of all, you are in full control of it all with the five-speed manual transmission. As you look at the undercarriage photos, its freshness reminds you of how few miles are on this build. Plus, you'll spot some great features, like the Heidts front end, four-link rear, rack & pinion steering, QA1 adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Complete with build receipts, and photos, this is an all-around awesome Cobra package that will keep people talking. So at a price like this, you know it's not going to stick around long. Call now!
