Lot Details & Additional Photographs


This 2006 Shell Valley 427 Cobra Replica was built in 2018 using a complete roller kit featuring a 2x4โ€ rectangular powder coated black tube frame, with a fiberglass and Kevlar reinforced body. Powered by a new Ford 351 cubic inch Windsor engine and a Tremec T5 5-speed transmission with side exit exhaust. The front suspension consists of powder coated tubular upper and lower a-arms, QA-1 coil over shocks with springs, Mustang II spindles, and a quick ratio rack & pinion steering. In the rear, with a narrowed and powder coated Ford 9โ€ rear end with new Moser axles, an adjustable 4-Link rear suspension with aluminum radius arms, and QA-1 coil over shocks with springs. Also, 4-wheel disc brakes with 11โ€ SVC disc brake package complete with calipers, stainless steel pre-formed brake lines, and drilled & slotted brake rotors. This appears to be a full kit from Shell Valley, minus the drivetrain.

The exterior in Brilliant Silver with Classic Black racing stripes. All of the trim pieces such as the roll bar, quick jack bumpers, Daytona style fuel cap, and windshield trim is black. The American Racing Shelby Cobra "Halibrand" wheels are black with a polished lip, and "knock off" style caps with safety wires attached and Cooper Cobra tires. The interior is black as well. This livery makes the car appear particularly menacing. The interior is spartan aside from battery shut off switch, with a toggle aircraft style ignition switch, along with modern gauges including a GPS enabled speedometer.
