STK 2508 1966 Ford Cobra Roadster
This 1966 Shelby Cobra is a prime example of what a performance 'Replicar' should be. We lack specifics as to the origin of the car, but we believe the following to be true regarding the chassis: the boxed frame is very stout with conventional front suspension (probably Mustang II) and a Ford 9” rear differential. The engine was built and installed (2016) by Prestige Motorsports here in Concord. Prestige has been building rugged performance engine packages for years and we met with them to define the specifications of this motor. The engine is the 427ci small-block Windsor-based stroker motor. Specs include: forged crank/pistons/rods, Dart aluminum heads, Comp hydraulic roller cam (.568/.526), Edelbrock Air Gap intake and Quick Fuel SS-750 double pumper carburetor. Each blueprinted engine is dyno tested upon completion and the dyno sheets for this 427 are furnished – max 518bhp/541lb/ft. The rumble from the side-pipe headers leaves no mistake that this motor is all business. Torque is transferred to the Ford differential by a 5-speed Tremec manual transmission. Rear gearing is 3.73:1. The body was finished in Cobra Blue w/white strips and is in very good condition. The black vinyl interior is all business including a roll cage and M&R 5-point racing lap/shoulder harnesses. A full compliment of gauges is perfectly positioned in the functional dash. Brakes are front disc/rear drum and American Racing 15” alloy wheels mount performance radials. The current owner has taken good care of this handsome Cobra and is now ready to pass it on to the next caretaker. If you want a Cobra replicar that you can really drive and enjoy, this is your car.
