Description for Shelby Cobra 1965

Superformance 427SC MkIII, SPO2076,produced under license by Carroll Shelby. Original deep Onyx Black paint on black matte finish and with clear bra application. Built by (Authorized Superformance Dealer) Hillbank Motor Sports in California.

Magnificent condition... only 1,100 miles [1,770 km] logged.

It is titled and registered in Montana. It still sports its (coveted) original California SB-100 registration sticker; I haven't checked yet with the California DMV, but it can probably go back into The Golden State with this same SB-100 registration.

Under the glistening Onyx Black bonnet:

  • Roush-engineered 351W (Dart block), bored & stroked to 446 cid
  • BIG-port AFR heads
  • custom fabricated Roush valve covers & air cleaner

  • full solid mechanical roller valvetrain
  • Wiseco pistons
  • Stewart Components high-flowwater pump

No expense was spared on this splendid Roush powerplant...
