Technical data for 1966 Shelby Cobra --
Most people feel that when they are buying a "replica" vehicle that it is not worthy of the original and just a knock off that was pieced together with old parts and built by some guy in a garage with a some buddies because they knew how to build Lego's as a kid. Since the popularity of the Cobra many kit car companies have done their best to replicate a true American icon in the automotive world many have failed and there are a few select that have really succeeded with a quality kit with a p...roper setup for success. Classic Roadster based out of North Dakota had been supplying kits since 1979 and have many fine kits to choose from. The Cobra or MX version that they offered is regarded as one of the top brands in this arena. This gorgeous car is in remarkable shape all around and it is very evident that the build and quality components that were used were done right and proper. The vehicle sits on the longer wheelbase which gives the driver and passenger much more room along with a little larger trunk for added storage. The vehicle was built by a previous shop manager and the attention to detail and care that went into the build is very impressive. Simple things like the rear wood dash that is usually wrapped in plastic or cheap leather. This monster comes alive quickly and the monstrous 347 V8 Stroker engine with an estimated 550HP - it has a mean growl and the dual side pipes gives you a sound that would scare the boogie man off the street. The engine was a new 5.0L block with rods CompCams roller cam TrueRoller timing chain Edelbrock performance RPM intake manifolds 650 Demon Carburetor 1 3/4in custom headers MSD ignition and distributor billet steel flywheel and so much more done to the engine alone. Vehicle has the proven and strong 3550 Tremec 5spd transmission with a 10.5 Ford racing clutch assembly. Vehicle comes with four wheel disc brakes and dual master cylinder brke assembly. Interior is well sorted and comes with period correct seats with the RJS 5-point harness seatbelts with adjustable seat wood steering wheel with tilt feature Autometer ultra lite electronic gauges and functioning wipers horn lights and turn signals. The suspension is a coil spring setup with KYB gas adjustable shocks front strut rods and heavy sway bar along with 9in Ford 4 link and sway bar and custom 2in chrome roll bar behind the driver. Vehicle stands out with the American Torque thrust chrome wheels and huge BF Goodrich tires that will provide plenty of grip. Vehicle has spent its life in Idaho and Oregon and has been pampered its entire life with less than 16000 mile logged and shows just as nice as when it was new. Vehicle is titled as a 1966 and comes with a clean MI title full documentation of the build receipts and an apetitie for ashphalt! Quality builds like this one do not come around very often and the price is very aggressive for the market.
