1966 SHELBY COBRA 427 

No other sports car is more quintessentially American than the Shelby Cobra 427.

 

You only have to see it once, in a photograph or a movie, and it is sealed forever in your memory, together with its name.
The Cobra is arguably one of the most sensational all-time great classic sports cars ever built, and this 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 tribute is the perfect specimen.

 

It attracts a lot of attention wherever it goes. You can't drive a single mile without a wave, thumbs up, a shout, or a question. The Cobra is extremely photogenic so be prepared for passing crowds to take pictures whenever you stop.

 

At rest, it exudes an aura of sensuous danger… But it's when the monstrous engine springs to life with that sinister, wet rumble that this American icon shows it's true racing heritage. You instantly know you’re in the presence of a car that was meant to do something important.

 

Like the Shelby Cobras that dominated the racing circuits in the ’60s, this car boasts an original 7.0-liter big-block Ford Fe 427 "side-oiler” V8. In competition form, power output was 485bhp resulting in a blistering top speed of 185mph. It’ll hit 60 at just over four seconds (and feels like it could tow your house while doing it) - That's very quick even today 50 years later… in '66 it must have felt almost unbelievable!

 

Legend has it Carroll Shelby would place a $100 bill on the car’s dashboard, if you could reach forward and grab it under acceleration, you could keep it. So the story goes, not one person walked away with an extra $100.

 

The roadster is finished in Guardsman Blue (the color Carroll Shelby chose for his racing squadron), with a pair of contrasting racing stripes that glisten in the morning light. The interior too is true to its heritage; simple yet functional. Classic black leather racing seats, a vintage wood racing steering wheel, all the original gauges and switches along with five-point racing harnesses for added safety. The automatic transmission makes it comfortable to maneuver in city traffic, yet lets it behave like a race car on open roads. Four-wheel disc brakes and independent suspension allow the car to glide through corners providing for a more manageable driving experience.

 

It's no secret that every Cobras has a story. Perhaps because it takes an “interesting” sort of person to wrap their hands around that skinny wooden steering wheel and let this beast roam free. The feeling of this legend on the open road is like no other. Prowling, growling and occasionally bellowing as it devours every mile of road you give it, just like it once did, over half a century ago.

 

This '66 Shelby Cobra 427 is the epitome of high-performance cool and will bring your bucket list to another level. No one, and I mean no one, ever comes back without a giant smile on their face.
