427" Stroker Small Block Shelby Cobra
427" Stroker Small Block Ford, the whine you hear is a Gear Drive which
kind of gives it a really cool sound. The whine combined with the sidepipes
makes for a fun experience behind the wheel....I like cars with a good
sound but not Obnoxiously "HEY LOOK AT ME!!" loud...when you get it right,
everybody smiles when you pull up or go by.
It's funny that in the video the car looks purple and white but to see it
with your eyes the car looks almost black with just hints of the blackberry
pearl reflecting off the curves and the stripes are a silver pearl. The
color flips from the blueish purple to a reddish 'black cherry' color
depending onthe time of day but from a distance it looks black.
You can tell (like my 517" Charger) that Stroker motors (Small Blocks AND
Big Blocks) built-right will rev VERY QUICKLY and provide you with both
Great Torque and Awesome horsepower. Build the bottom
end for Torque and put really good flowing heads for the horsepower, it's an awesome
combination every time. Thanks for Watching!
Contemporary 427SC Cobra
This car is my homage to the legendary 427SC Cobras and Carroll Shelby, a
very accurate replica with stunning Iris Blue paint, Wimbledon White racing
stripes and a Ford big block, 428 Cobra Jet engine. It is a unique offering
for a superb driving machine, a veritable piece of American ingenuity and
sports car history.
For those who know. Among knowledgeable Cobra aficionados, the Contemporary
Classic Cobra is regarded as one of the finest replicas ever produced
because of the accuracy of the body and round-tube frame, quality of the
engineering and construction, the authenticity of its appearance and the
scintillating feel of the driving experience.
This car features the famous big-block Ford 428FE Cobra Jet (an improvement
over the 428FE Police Interceptor motors that were used alternately with
the 427FE side-oiler in original 427 Cobras). It has been balanced and
blueprinted, completely rebuilt from the block up with all new bearings and
the finest components. No expense has been spared. Note that all original
427 Cobras used Ford FE engines, both 427s and 428s. To achieve
authenticity in a Cobra replica you need to have an FE engine and this
immaculate 428FE Cobra Jet meets that requirement. And when you put your
foot into it, it sounds ferocious and things start happening very quickly.
Made in the USA, this is an extremely strong, double-bonded, steel-tube
reinforced Contemporary fiberglass monocoque body with thoroughly authentic
proportions, the firm's body molds and tooling were created from the
founder's original SC Cobra, CSX3045.
You shouldn't miss this opportunity to own one of the most breathtakingly
beautiful Contemporary 427 SC Cobras ever constructed. It's a first-class
show-stopper, a true time machine that will provide you with high-spirited
driving and is sure to etch a permanent smile on your face.

Update: This Cobra has been sold and is now on its way to a its new owner
in Niederwil, Switzerland - 8/8/2011
PS: The microphone is picking up the engine bay noise of the solid lifters
as well as the sound from the side pipes, a bit further away from the mic.
This is my first attempt at a video on YouTube and I swear the source
footage clips aren't as jerky as the final video. But what the heck! I hope
shelby cobra 427!

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.

Shelby Cobra - The Engine Sounds Wild
http://www.kitcarconnection.com - James Martell takes his Shelby Cobra
replica for a cruise.
I decided to post this video for all the viewers of my other video who
complained about the engine being drowned out by the music. They have a
point. The engine noise of a Cobra with the famous sidepipes is music
enough to a car enthusiast.
If you are looking to hear a the roar of the engine this is your video.
The car in the video was built in 2004 in Calgary, Alberta by Peter
Jacobsen using car a Mk2 Roadster kit from Factory Factory Racing. The car
is powered with a 302 crate engine from Western Motorsports in Calgary,
