Description for Shelby AC Cobra 1967


By: Midstates Classic Cars, Presently Shell Valley Classic Wheels Inc.

MODEL- AC Cobra 427 Roadster


Reserve is always lower than the BIN price, but don't miss out for some 4th of July FUN!


Purchased 2013 from original owner. A 1999 model in the builder's catalog produced as a 1967 Shelby Cobra 427 SC. Replicas flooded the market from the 1970's onwards and Midstates, now Shell Valley has been one of the premier & respected builders providing well-built & accurate replicas since its origins in 1971.

Due to my scheduling restraints & unfamiliarity of the process, I am having the appraiser-
ClassicGray©moderate the auction & competently answer all your questions.

MECHANICAL/ROAD TEST: Very strong, low-mileage Big-Block w/430hp that idles w/ a nice, raunchy lope & pulls like crazy as you would expect. Tight steering, excellent brakes & no over-heating or leaks while idling for 15 mins for video & after a 20 minute test drive & sitting again for 10 mins.

RESTORATIVE WORK/MODIFICATIONS:Respray by previous owner who felt the original paint was not up to his standards who also had trunk pre-wired for entertainment system. Well maintained by present owner w/ the only major service being new clutch & peripherals done 8/16. Odometer repaired & new Die-Hard Marine Battery installed in 2016.


A vehicle fulfilling all the attributes of a #3++ vehicle w/ potential of moving into a low #2 category w/ some minor paint touch-ups & a total professional detailing - undercarriage in particular. A solid & superbly built Replica keeping very close to original specs of the unrivaled American Muscle Car, the 427 SC Cobra w/ a true (not bored) Big Block & period correct accessories & components. The tall/high rear ratio of 2.77:1 makes for less spectacular launches & overall better drivability, although not sedate by any means.

Has the look & feel of the real McCoy, very vintage & correct in all respects w/ absolutely no issues & the only thing it needs is a new driver. Priced atBELOWits appraised value & will be adjusted if necessary to make a sale.
