At a Glance;
John Speed Cobra was shipped from South Africa and was built to look like the vintage race car that of the day! The AC Cobra was the brain child of Carroll Shelby, a legendary race car driver of his day, and always dreamed of the day where he could build sports cars. In the early sixties, the perfect opportunity arose. Carroll Shelby saw the potential in this sleek lined sports car and the rest is history. Due to limited production numbers, most people could not afford to purchase the real deal or even find one for that matter, so a few manufacturers decided to create replicas that look like the real deal for a fraction of the price. This stunning version of a 1967 Cobra was built in 2005 and features a 351 that was built up and punched out to a 393 CID V8 that packs a serious punch. Slotted and crossed drilled disc brakes on all four corners. Independent rear suspension. Hooked up behind the engine is a Tremec 5-Speed transmission that allows excellent drivability and fun! With static cling decals that can be removed without harming the paint. This car was purchased, built, and maintained by the same owner for the last 12 years and only 3,265 miles have been put on it since it was built. When you jump inside, you will feel like you have been transported back to the sixties and are about to set off on the race of your life. The flat dash with simplistic gauge layout allows the drive to carefully monitor what is happening with the car as you are cruising. Once you get out on the open road and start shifting through the gears you will be blown away by the sheer power and agility of a car that was developed and raced 50 years ago. It is an absolute thrill to drive and assures there will never be a dull moment when behind the wheel. This Cobra runs and drives great and is ready to go to a new home where it will be truly loved and enjoyed! If you have always wanted to own a Cobra, take a closer look at this one and start living your dream.
