For sale in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom is a 1966 Shelby Cobra Replica. Cobra Roadsters are hard to beat for smiles per gallon. Following the oldest speed recipe in the book, these cars combine a lightweight fiberglass body, no frills interior, a big displacement V8, manual transmission, and two rear tires clinging on for dear life. The brainchild of the near mythical Carol Shelby, the A/C Cobraâ??s remain legends of the car world and are some of the most replicated vehicles on the planet.
This Cobra is a Shell Valley kit, and is titled as a 1998. The Shell Valley cars feature Kevlar reinforced bodies and race inspired triangular rear suspension. There is a very clear color theme of Red and Black throughout the whole car, and it gives an already sinister car and even more devilish look. The body is coated in a great Rosa Corsa Ferrari red, possibly the most ironic color choice. Every accent piece on the body from the rollbar, windshield trim, side pipes, fender louvers, and bumpers has been painted a matte black that provides great contrast. The American Racing Shelby Cobra wheels are the natural choice for wheels, and of course they are black as well. The interior follows up with much more black. In fact, everything is black. The transmission tunnel and rear cabin wall are also accented with read diamond stitching. The classic tilted racing shifter is linked up to a T-5 5 speed transmission with a dedicated transmission cooler, giving you more gears to keep the engine in the power band more often. Speaking of the engine, typically under the hoods of these cars you find an engine that makes such a laughably unusable amount power, practical only for turning rear tires into dust. Here, the decision was made to use a built 302 CID V8. It is complete with Trickflow heads, and a full roller/rocker valve train. Not only does this engine make more than enough power to satisfy the hooligan in you, but it also keeps the weight down in the nose of the car compared to a big block motor, improving handling. Further enhancing the handling are adjustable coil over springs at all corners, as well as four wheel disc brakes to slow you down when you inevitably find yourself going far too fast.
