Saw this driving in Park City. 427 motor (or labeled as such)
Is this thing a kit or worth a bundle? Sounded good! As a hemi guy I liked it a lot
It's most likely a kit, very few owners of original AC Cobras are willing to drive them. Some kits do actually have an FE 427 but usually if it's a 427 it's a stroked small block
There is a guy that goes to Bob's Bigboy Toluca Lake that has 2 original 427 Cobras, one is just a regular Cobra and the other one is a factory built racecar. He has all the paperwork/history on it, who drove it where it qualified where it finished in the race......it is a fully documented car, last I talked to him it was worth around 2 million but that was 13 years ago, he is local to that Bob's Bigboy and drives them there. Those are to only 2 originals I have ever seenIn the late 80s/early 90s, there was a pharmacist at "Clarks" on Grand ave in Covina. On Fridays, if the weather was nice, he would drive in his Cobra...badass original. Probably wasn't worth near what they are now, but still not cheap. I think his other "daily" was an SS Nova. Older Japanese guy, if I remember correctly. Good taste in cars!
Not a Superformance. It has lugs instead of knock offs. Some other tell tale signs as well. I believe it’s a FF like the poster above stated. It is 100% not original.99% for sure kit ... otherwise ... you would be seeing a million dollars rolling down the road ... very unlikely ... Factory Five or Superperformance.
Superformance builds the continuation cars for Shelby. Their MKIII is licensed by Shelby and the continuation car has an actual CSX vin number. The Shelby is built to original specs (tube frame etc...).
Superformance builds some bad ass stuff. A Daytona Coupe and MKII GT40 are on the bucket list. Except I'm not sure if I'd fit in either.Superformance builds the continuation cars for Shelby.
