1966 Shelby Cobra 427 & 1965 AC Cobra 289 , I can't keep up!
Leaving the 50th anniversary Carroll Shelby show in Plano, Texas I follow a
few AC Cobra's and can't keep up! These are pure American Musclecars! 1965
and 1966 models. One is a 427, one is a 289. Which is which? Classic cars
at their best.
Shelby Cobra LOUD start and acceleration!!
I spot this vicious facroty 5 shelby cobra in Wrentham, MA. the owner was
really cool, and as you can see from the video, offered me a ride in his
beast of a car! i love the way this V8 gurgles when he starts up, then how
it backfires after he accelerates down that straight! Comment, rate, and

Short test run of my Factory Five replica of a Shelby 427 Cobra with a

Shelby Cobra - 0 to 130 in seconds!
In case you are wondering about the erratic shifting... My Tremmec 600
tranny had bad synchros that had to be rev up before gear would fall into
place. That's why you don't see smooth, power-shifting. If was later fixed
and the car sold. Wished I would have done more vids, specially when the
backfire flames came out of the sidepipes on rev down.
No NOS. No octane Booster. Regular
pump gas. Pedal down 3/5 of the way. 130MPH in a few seconds!!
