Paint and Chrome

The British Racing Green finish is in very good condition and sparkles indoors or outdoors. The fiberglass body is in like-new condition with proper gaps on hood, oors and trunk.

The chrome is excellent.

The underside of the car is free of rust and it is clear from the condition of the underside that this car has travelled few miles since new.


The seat upholstery is tan leather that makes an excellent contrast with the BRG exterior. The door panels are in excellent condition. The carpet is a matching black.

These cars have no convertible tops (the theory was they could out-race the rain!) but it does have a tonneau. And, ust in case the rain sneaks up on you, he Cobra has windshield wipers—but no heater or defroster. These were intended to be true sports cars!


The car's V-8 is a fuel injected Ford 5.0 that sits nestled in a clean engine bay. The engine is enhanced with an Edelbrock upper and lower intake manifold, BK exhaust headers, ccell Billetech ignition, illet pulleys, 0lb injectors and a BBK cold air intake.


The 5-speed transmission is a Tremec and it shifts like new. The rear end is a Ford Ultimate 8.8 LPW.

Tires, rakes, afety and Monitoring Systems

This car has Cobra Mustang 5-spoke wheels mounted with Z speed-rated Avon tires—245/45ZR17s on the front and 275/40ZR17s on the rear. The large footprint of the tires help harness the engine's torque and deliver it to the rear wheels.

The 4-wheel disc brakes bring the car to a straight and quick stop without pulling or shuddering. All of the gauges (speedometer, ach, temp, il pressure, as) work properly, s do the safety equipment (lights, urn signals, orn, ipers). As mentioned, his is a "driver's car" and accordingly has neither heater/defrosters or a convertible top. The car has Simpson racing seatbelts to keep the driver and passenger firmly in place as this car does what it was made for: go and stop fast and to assist with that mission, his Cobra is equipped with AC race pedals.

Assuming you can hear it over the roar of the engine, his Cobra has a Sony unit with AM/FM/CD/MP3 and Polk speakers! as well.

An Excellent Example of these High-performance Cobra Replicas

If there was ever a car that transports you back to the '60s and memories of Carroll Shelby, his is it. Apart from the investment value of this car, t is hard to put a price on the feeling of enjoyment when other drivers and pedestrians wave and give you a "thumbs up" —assuming they do it quickly as you blast down the road.
