I thought you might like a look at this awesome Shelby Cobra CSX4891. This
car was built by Shelby American and is about as true to the original as
you'll find...except even more powerful. This car is powered by a 575 HP
Side-Oiler Ford V8, backed by a Toploader four-speed, and a Dana 44 rear.
It even has the true Halibrand pin drive knockoff wheels, with Goodyear
Racing Tires. As you can see in the video, this car is amazingly quick.
It's hard to imagine ever having more fun in an automobile. I hope you
find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
This car was filmed at Fast Lane Classic Cars in St. Charles, MO

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!!
1965 Shelby Cobra + 700 HP + Kirkham + Fast
Replica 1965 Shelby Cobra owned by Len B, produced by Kirkham Motor Sports.
The car only weighs 2100 pound due to its aluminum body which is made in
Poland at a former MIG aircraft factory. The cars weight is also low due
to aluminum suspension and motor. The motor is a Shelby aluminum block
427fe which produces 700 horse power (i.e., FAST) !!! That is the same
power to weight ratio as a bullet bike.
To the dismay of several bullet bike riders; Len likes to show them who is
"the boss" in a race from time to time.
