  • Wonderful example of the Contemporary Classic Cobra, considered among the most accurate 427 Cobra replicas with bodies cast directly from an original Cobra, CSX 3045
  • Robust, dual-layer construction far more rigid and precisely engineered than traditional pop-riveted “kit cars;” comprised of a one-piece body shell double bonded to inner panels, along with tubular steel substructures bonded into the hood, door, and trunk openings, as well as the rear lip of the passenger compartment and leading edge of the cowl
  • Rigid four-inch diameter by 1/8-inch tube chassis based on the original for authenticity, but enhanced with increased wall thickness to reduce flex for better handling and driving performance
  • Equipped with 428-ci Cobra Jet V-8 engine mated to a top loader, four-speed transmission
  • Extensive service work in the last year, including a new fuel system and carburetor installed by Xcentric Autosports in Ontario, Canada, a Shelby American authorized company
  • Refreshed by RM Auto Restoration in the last year, including re-chroming of the side exhaust pipes and roll bar, repairing gauges, adding correct wind deflectors, fabrication of a factory-style radiator support, and installing a new radiator with electric thermostat
  • Riding on period 427 Cobra Halibrand-style knock-off wheels wrapped in freshly installed black-wall tires
