1967 Shelby 427 Additional Info:

I bought this cobra from Classic Cars Ltd. in California in Oct. 2015. They stated that "this car was owned by a serious collector, enthusiast and racer, on the West Coast.Unfortunately, as a result of the passing of the car’s owner, much of the history of the car is not available.This particular car was acquired in Arizona and subsequently titled in California as a 1967 Shelby. " I purchased it and it is currently titled,registered and licensedin South Carolina as a 1967 Shelby.It has a clear South Carolinatransferabletitle, with under 1,000 miles showing on the Smith's odometer / speedometer.

In 1993 Kit Car magazine tested and compared seven kit cars to an original Shelby 427 Cobra - "The Contemporary was the only car that equaled or bettered the results of the Shelby in every test category". See picture of Kit Car results. There is also a picture of the Contemporary Classic brochure and sticker . These are included in the sale.

Body was patterned directly fromShelby Cobra "SC" CSX-3045 owned bythefounder ofContemporaryClassics.Chassis - 4" O.D. -1/8" wall thickness round tube based on original SC design but has increased wall thickness to remove flex found in original SC built chassis.

This car is not in pristine "show-car" condition, although the body and paint are nearly perfect, the rest of the car is in very good driver-car condition. It was built ~25 yearsago. It could be put into show car condition with some chassis and component repainting and aluminum hardware polishing.

The car starts right up and runs "fast and loud".

I am selling it because I have too many projects now so cannot put much time into it.
