1966 Shelby Classic

Shelby Classic. CLASSIC ROADSTERS KIT,6.4LITER 4-SPEED, 2-4 barrel carbs on a Offenhauser intake Cobra replicas are just about the most fun you can have on four wheels, and those with big power like this very nicely built BLACK 1966 Shelby Cobra and a performance suspension that's more than up to the job of putting the power down.
The kit is by Classic Roadsters, LTD, and if you're familiar with new Cobras, they've been at it longer than almost anybody. The design captures the curves and scoops of the original and civilizes it a bit. A 6'4 250lbs Driver easily fits with plenty of leg room there to make it more user-friendly than an original. Finish quality is extremely good and you know that the guys tasked with getting the fiberglass shell into shape were paying attention in class, because it's nicer than most. The doors line up right, the hood fits flush, and you don't see any of the usual waves or thin spots in the 'glass that you'd find on poorly-prepped roadsters. The Jet black paint gives the brutal Cobra a high-impact look that doesn't need stripes to look amazing. The usual Cobra styling cues like a chrome roll bar stubby bumpers, Chrome sidepipes and Lucas-style taillights all help with authenticity, although I'm guessing nobody will mistake this
roadster for anything but Shelby's finest.
Beautiful black bucket seats with room behind them give the interior a custom look, but upon closer inspection you'll see that it pretty much sticks to the original recipe. The shifter is linked to a Top loader 4-speed manual transmission, which really gives this car a wide performance envelope.. The trunk is also nicely finished with black carpets and a nice flat floor, so it'll carry a surprising amount of gear on your next road trip.
Despite the fact that it's named "Classic 427," the engine is a strong-running 6.4 liter built with high-quality components, including a set of Ford Cobra valve covers. With 2 Edelbrock carburetor and an Offenhauser intake. In the lightweight Cobra, that's enough horsepower to make things very entertaining with a mega-horsepower powerplant. It certainly looks the part of a Cobra powerplant and with chrome side pipes, it has an awe-inspiring sound. Disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, tubular A-arms, and coil-over shocks make this Cobra feel plenty lively when the road starts to twist. Stylish Crager brand-style alloys are fitted with 245/60/15 front and 295/50/15 rear BFGoodrich rubber, giving it the ideal Cobra stance.
