1965 Cobra




Blue and White

The Special Construction 1965 Cobra described herein represented a very good example of a custom designed and fabricated high performance replica car.

Fabricated accordance with the original specifications of the Shelby 427 S/C Cobra’s built in the mid to late sixties, this automobile has a fiberglass body sitting on top of computer designed tubular steel chassis. It has also been further enhanced with the designed in modern improvements such as huge disc brakes, rack & pinion steering etc.

A professionally built replica 427 Cobra, such as this desirable Superformance version, in these improving economic times is likely to appreciate at the 5% rate per annum.
