1963 Shelby Cobra
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
In 1963 Carroll Shelby took his Shelby American team and specially prepared Cobras to race at the Sebring 12-Hour Grand Prix of Endurance in March of that year. These cars have since become known as the "Sebring Cobras." The Team factory cars were raced by the renowned Shelby American team drivers in 1963 and 1964 and at almost every major race track in the U.S.A.
Sebring Edition Shelby Cobras cars are as true to the originals as you can get and are configured exactly as the Sebring Cobras were in 1963 at the 12 Hours of Sebring. The engineers meticulously researched the subtle differences in each car's appearance and configuration at the time they were raced and consulted Allen Grant, Dave MacDonald's son Rich as well as Dave's two personal mechanics, Wally Peat and Ted Sutton to ensure the car's accuracy. The Sebring Cobras feature an original-style steel tube frame chassis and suspension along with an aluminum radiator, Shelby disc brakes, and a Salisbury 3.54 aluminum Shelby differential. The Sebring Cobras also featured a number of unique features on the exterior including a third hood latch, front and rear brake ducts/scoops, front spats and rear flares, 15-inch kidney bean pin drive style wheels, an FIA-style fuel filler cap, race-correct early Cobra badges, hood scoop attached with rivets, and trunk bungee cord. The interior includes either chrome or black FIA-style roll bar, special competition style dash layout, grab handle, non-adjustable foot box vents, 3-way fuel transfer valve, mirrors for side and rear view, push-button start, and vinyl seats with carpeted back.
Sebring Edition Cobras will be limited to a production of just 15 cars both Aluminum an Fiberglass Bodies and will be available in four driver liveries - Ken Miles (red painted body with #16 painted roundels), Dan Gurney (black painted body and yellow stripes with #15 painted roundels), Allen Grant (yellow painted body and black stripes with #96 painted roundels) and Dave MacDonald (black painted body and yellow stripes with #198 painted roundels).
