1985 Cobra Shelby Roadster
Red with white stripes
427 Side Oiler 8 cyl
Magnificent custom build replica Cobra with 427 Side Oiler with medium rise heads and intake. Standard Bore Block purchased from Kenz and Leslie. Very street-able race car with 500 Horse. Behind the monster 427 is a C-6 Trans with an Art Car manual valve body and 5 disk clutch pack. Rear axle ratio is a cruising 3:50 to one allowing this hot rod to top out about 140 MPH. The suspension is a full Jaguar independent suspension with 4 wheel disk brakes. Motor alone worth $20,000.
This Cobra isn’t one of those replica bellybuttons that everyone has; this is a manly beast that will throw you into the seat anytime you want to test that 427. So nice to drive with the manual body automatic vs. working the clutch and gear box.
