Go to: http://www.kitcarconnection.com - I spotted my first Shelby Cobra 427 S/C back in the summer of 1979. I knew INSTANTLY that one day I had to have one of these cars. I have now enjoyed mine since 2005 and she is way more fun than I ever would have expected.
The car is a Factory Five Racing MkII Roadster and was hand-built in Calgary, Alberta throughout 2004 and delivered to my driveway January 2005. The car is powered with a 302 crate engine from Western Motorsports in Calgary, Alberta.
I based the *look* of the Cobra replicar on Allen English's car in Portland, Oregon. That car was unfortunately wrecked in a crash in the summer of in 2008. Not too worry, he's okay and now driving a beautiful blue CAV GT40 (aka Ford GT 40 replica).
This video was captured by my son Justin as we cruised around South Surrey and White Rock, BC Canada. It was produced for me as a gift by a good friend Phil Watkins.

132983 / 1965 Shelby Superformance Cobra
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cxheobg
This 560 horsepower supercharged 427
replica is a fully sorted and expertly detailed show car that wears a
licensed Shelby body and features autographs from both Carroll Shelby
himself and legendary engine builder Jack Roush.
When you take a car to SEMA, you're displaying in front of hundreds of the
most skilled and influential car guys in the world. Every part of the car
has to be flawless and EVERYTHING about the cars build has to be absolutely
perfect. This '65 Cobra began with exceptionally solid fiberglass that
doesn't show any signs of waves or ripples. On top of that fiberglass, an
even and smooth gel coat provides an excellent canvas for the cars wet-look
Pepper Gray paint and a killer set of red and silver racing stripes. Once
that spectacular paint was buffed to a brilliant shine, proper finish work
ensured that this laser-straight re-creation looks every bit as good as the
old school aluminum 427 Cobra it replicates.
But enough about the trim, let's get to the REALLY amazing part of this
Cobra. The cars fresh 351 Windsor V8 has been bored and stroked to 408
cubic inches, features an 8.5 to 1 compression ratio and puts out a dragon
slaying 560 horsepower and 575 lb./ft.
of torque! The top end of the motor is beefed up by a Paxton Novi 1200 Supercharger with seven pounds of Boost, an Aeromotive high performance
electronic fuel pump with dual filters and a Boost adjustable fuel pressure regulator, and
a polished Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. Spark is provided by an MSD 6AL
ignition system, an MSD points distributor and MSD Super Conductor wires,
and slick ceramic coated headers make quick work of the spent gases.
Cooling isn't an issue with the cars fan cooled aluminum radiator and
polished water pump keeping everything in check, and the detailed build
even included grade-A ancillary components like a power brake Booster and engine oil cooler. This Cobras
entire custom fabricated aluminum engine bay is held together with aircraft
style aluminum rivets and features complete satin nickol AN fittings and
stainless steel braided hoses.
Bolted into this car's correct all tubular steel frame is a modern TKO600
5-speed performance transmission that is equipped with a McCleod scatter
shield and a Centerforce clutch and pressure plate. That transmission feeds
a tough Dana 45 limited slip rear end that does an excellent job of
transferring the cars massive power to the ground with very little drama.
At the front of the chassis, modern tubular upper and lower control arms
are equipped with a heavy duty sway bar and coil overs that house
performance Bilstein shocks. Out back, four more modern tubular control
arms are equipped with a second heavy duty sway bar and two more coil overs
with performance Bilstein shocks. Stops come courtesy of a four wheel
Wilwood brake system that sends fluid from a hydraulic clutch master
cylinder via braided hoses to red Superlite big bore four piston calipers
which clamp 13 inch slotted front Wilwood GT rotors and 12 inch slotted
rear rotors. Keeping this Cobra glued to the race track is a custom a set
of 18 inch American Racing Shelby Pin wheels that wear 275/35 front and
massive 335/30 rear Michelin Pilot Sport radials.
Jump inside the car and you'll find nice custom embroidered leather seats
that feature Cobra four point racing harnesses with cam-lock releases. The
cars painted dash is covered in tight black leather and houses an
autographed Carroll Shelby glove box beside correct Smiths black faced
gauges which include a traditional 8,000 RPM no redline tachometer. Below
the seats, new carpet is protected by rugged Superformance floor mats, and
at the sides of the seats, the cars fiberglass doors have been covered in
matching black leather. In front of the driver, a 15 inch leather wrapped
steering wheel features satin aluminum spokes and a correct Superformance
horn button, and beside the driver a chrome shifter and chrome hand brake
sit directly in front of a chrome fire extinguisher.
Don't miss this opportunity to own a spectacular turn-key car that's just
as nice as an original Cobra, and probably more fun to drive, at a fraction
of the price.
