This 1967 Shelby Cobra replica has a performance-built 460 V8, four-speed toploader, stout chassis/suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. It makes for a powerful track-inspired car that you'll love to drive. But as you dig deeper, you'll see a sleek style and the right details that make this great to show, too.
This car makes a striking first impression, and that has to do with the radiant paint. We're told the entire car was painted white, and the red was laid on top. And of course plenty of clear on top. It gives this an exceptionally slippery shine, and so it looks fantastic as the light evenly rolls across the iconic flared fender style of this car. And the overall quality of the fit and finish is quite good because Antiques & Collectibles has a reputation for making enviable fiberglass bodies. This one is also a detailed build with side wind wings, full side curtains, and a convertible soft top. Most of the polished eye candy is also functional, like the quick-jack bumpers, a roll hoop, and side pipes. Plus, those Halibrand-style wheels look terrific, especially with the stance that comes from the extra meaty rear set.
Just like the exterior, the interior is quite clean and attractive. You have good competition-ready features like the contoured bucket seats, a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, and proper Simpson racing harnesses. The total package is the right mix of vintage and updated. For example, this now has a tilt steering column, which wasn't found on the originals or many of today's reproductions. It gives you a clear view of the gauges, and they are the classic Smiths units that even have the correct reversed speedometer that Carroll Shelby put in his cars.
When you look under the hood of a Cobra, there's nothing better to see than a Ford big block. This 460 cubic-inch V8 is an enhanced unit that includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Weiand Stealth intake. There are also nice supporting components like Ford Motorsport SVO valve covers, steel braided lines, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The headers add extra power and they also deliver a terrific rumble out of the side pipes. It's a seriously powerful motor, and you can stay in the powerband with confidence thanks to the toploader four-speed manual transmission. So it's the kind of Cobra that will have you thinking about track days. Four-wheel adjustable coilovers, four-wheel disc brakes, a boxed steel frame, and a stout suspension setup makes for quite a racecar package.
This one has a track-ready feel and a stunner kind of style. It makes for a true Cobra feeling that's truly irresistible. Call today!!! (Titled/Registered as ""1967 COBRA"")
