1966 Ford Shelby Cobra Replica Description:

This 1966 Ford Cobra replica by Contemporary Classic Motor Car Company of Mamaroneck, New York has less than 1,000 miles. The period correct single 4-barrel 428 Cobra Jet engine delivers the power through a Ford toploader 4-speed transmission to the pin drive Halibrand wheels.Contemporary Cobras are considered to be the most accurate reproduction body since the molds were made directly from an original 427 SC Cobra, CSX3045. It comes complete with correctly shaped and flared rear fenders, and provisions for a 3-1/2” LeMans fuel filler cap. Inner panels included front fender wells, floorpan/foot box assembly, and truck liner are double bonded (bonded from both sides of the panel) to the body shell in a close tolerance assembly fixture which rendered proper alignment of all inner panels within the one-piece body shell.As delivered to the purchaser, the body, complete with inner panels is in effect a robust monocoque unit vs. the traditional “kit car” with its inner panels “pop riveted” to the body shell. An important Contemporary exclusive is that tubular steel substructure hoops (full tubular steel tube frames) have been bonded into the hood, door, and trunk openings, the rear lip of the driver/passenger compartment and leading edge of the cowl. The Contemporary 4” OD x 1/8” round-tube chassis is based on the original, but increased wall thickness reduces the flex inherent in the AC-built chassis. It combines rigidity superior to the “cut + weld” square/rectangular tubes frames commonly used by replica manufactures, while simultaneously providing lower mass/lighter weight, and of course is in keeping with the design and specifications of the original car. The round tube chassis is not only more authentic but more rigid and stronger which results in better handling and driving performance.
