Classic Car Overview
Shelbys ambition wasnt about to end there as he knew that Cobra had more potential. So, in 1964, Shelby started working on the Shelby Cobra 427, an even more extreme version powered by a monstrous Ford big block 7-liter engine with around 450 bhp and over 600 Nm of torque. It was insane to put this kind of power in such a light car, but Shelby was not the guy who cared about the sanity of his vehicles. He rightfully thought that there is no such thing as too much power and he was determined to build an ultimate classic muscle car. Instaling a 427 V8 proved to be more difficult and the Cobra body needed to be stretched and widened with necessary improvements to the chassis and suspension. The overall design remained the same, but although 289 and 427 Cobras looked very similar, none of the body panels, except for the hood, trunk, and windshield, are interchangeable.
