1965 Shelby Cobra 427SC Description:

This continuation Cobra was custom built to fastidious specifications. It is a wonderful mix of the continuation Cobras very authentic build complemented by a huge list of original parts and detail touches. It has been set up to be an eye popping F1 Rosso red show car that can easily and comfortably be used for a touring car to get to a show. Motivation comes from the aluminum Shelby stroker engine number matched to the car. It was built and dynoed by the Shelby Engine Co and produces 501 HP and 536 ft/lbs of torque. The car is for sale as it is not enjoyed often enough and needs a new owner that will drive it regularly as it is meant to be driven. This car has had no expense spared in the build. It was professionally built, assembled, tuned, maintained and sorted and the builder is very proud to have put it together. Built by internationally recognized Cobra expert Nick of Acton Custom Enterprises. It has some really nice upgrades on the car such as the magnesium Halibrand wheels.
