On the outside this just looks like a beautifully built 1965 Shelby Cobra, but then everybody else out there starts wondering why you can smoke them all. That's because this has a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and a powerful 427 V8 pumping out 550 hp to make this sleek machine also an all-around performance king.
The paint alone instantly makes this one a shining star. The black cherry color can look nearly as dark as midnight in the shadows, but once the sunlight hits it, some deep red tones begin to radiate like this Cobra is out for blood. ERA knows how to build these replicas correctly, and since there is less than 16,500 on the whole build, the fit and finish on this particular car is worthy of all the extra scrutiny it's likely to get at shows. And people will truly love all the details from the iconic dual racing stripes, to those iconic Halibrand wheels. This one even carries the Lucas PL headlights as a true nod to AC.
Curvy bucket seats look right, and more importantly, hold you in place during aggressive driving. They did a lot of work in this replica to give it that authentic feel, ranging from the wood-rimmed Cobra logo steering wheel, to the forward-canted Mustang shifter for the manual transmission. So, you'll love this one right down to the full Smiths gauge package that correctly features the reversed speedometer in the center. Racing lap belts, a fire extinguisher, and a folding roof that snaps in place even comes on this very accurate package. But even with all of these period-correct extras, we really know the reason why you love this Cobra is because it provides that perfect driving feeling. You're at one with the road and have the wind in your hair... and oh yeah, the throaty exhaust keeps the adrenaline in your veins.
You'll love showing off all the polished components under the hood and how the hood scoop genuinely feed the air grabber. So sure, the engine bay has that perfect shiny appearance that will certainly attract crowds... but this is a Cobra, and it's primary mission is to be the fastest sports car around. That's why beneath the flash is the substance of a 427 V8 built for some serious performance. It's a blueprinted and balanced '66 NASCAR side oiler block with a 428 Ford steel stoker crank (actual displacement closer to 452 cubic inches.) It has go-fast goodies such as a Manley stainless steel valves, Hayes aluminum flywheel, fly cut 13:1 pistons with 10.25:1 compression, police interceptor connecting rods, Crane Fireball camshaft, MSD ignition, Griffin radiator, and a Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor. It's a total package rated at 550 horsepower, and you better believe the wicked rumble of the Borla dual exhaust lets everyone know about your power superiority (if you're looking for more excitement near your ears, the sale also comes with headers and two sets of side pipes.) You are in complete control of this big powerhouse and its thunderous sound thanks to the close ratio Ford four-speed top loader transmission. And that's been reinforced with a RAM 2,200 pressure plate, Hayes clutch, and a Lakewood scattershield bell housing. But power is nothing without control. That's why you also have a fully independent suspension that features a Jaguar limited-slip rear end, Spax adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Complete with maintenance records, owner's manual, and valuable extra components, you know what it would cost to have this done today, and this one is barely broken in! So don't miss out on this big block speed machine. Call today!!!
