Few vintage cars elicit as many stares as do Shelby Cobras. Car enthusiasts know that those are almost always Replicas you see on the street, since originals are so exceedingly rare and valuable that taking them on a drive would be akin to trekking out to open mic nights with a Stradivarius in tow. Not all Replicas are created equal, however. Differences in body tooling, frame configuration and material selection play a huge part in the finished outcome - often the difference between a great car and a mere curiosity. Fabricated and built by Lone Star Classics, this 1966 Shelby Cobra Replica benefits from a great selection of those items, resulting in a first-rate vehicle.

With its low-slung and relatively wide stance, the racing heritage of this car is evident right off. Well- configured examples like this one can pull some pretty impressive skidpad figures as a result. That dark blue exterior accented by baby blue racing stripes is a great choice for a vintage-era sports car aesthetically pleasing, not often seen and yet stopping far short of being gaudy. After all, this is a car whose performance speaks loudly enough. One of the decided advantages of the Lone Star Cobra Replica is its longer 94 wheelbase, which makes for a noticeably more comfortable cockpit, especially for drivers 6 and over. The fenders are also slightly more flared than some of its counterparts, giving it a more aggressive look. Youll notice a chrome roll bar has been installed behind the drivers seat to provide a measure of safety. For comfortable all-weather driving, this car comes with a hard top that not only ably matches the color scheme of the rest of the exterior but is also well-fitted and shaped to provide reasonable headroom for the occupants.

Interiors on Cobra Replicas can vary markedly in terms of equipment and fit and finish. This one has clearly been configured for comfortable and enjoyable real-world driving, as evidenced by its fully functional A/C system which blows cold and with convincing force out the center vent between driver and passenger, well-configured black vinyl bucket seats with four point restraints, door panels that feature an interior door handle and a top of the line stereo system thats sure to add a lot of enjoyment to the motoring experience. The Kenwood AM/FM/CD system also has USB and Bluetooth compatibility so youll be able to stream your own music library, and it powers a set of JL speakers skillfully installed between the seats. Just to the right of the Grant GT steering wheel, youll find an assortment of VDO gauges, all of which are in perfect working order. The black carpeting is as fresh as youd expect on a car thats logged just over 2400 miles since its build, and the pair of Shelby floor mats are a nice finishing touch to the interior.

Mechanically, this Cobra Replica is configured for high-performance, but hassle-free motoring. The 351V8 provides plenty of power, but still light enough so as not to throw weight distribution into disarray. It fires right up, idles smoothly and has a nice throaty sound to it as it exhales out the pair of beefy side pipes. That Tremec 3550 5-speed transmission its paired with is a great, high-end choice, with far greater power-handling ability than the more commonly encountered T5s. A Griffin aluminum radiator sits up front, custom-configured for this car and, combined with an electric fan, provides the cooling power for all kinds of driving conditions. Disc brakes at all four corners add an additional measure of confidence. Centerline rims wrapped in Eagle GT radials provide a perfect, period-appropriate look.

In the market for a true American sports car with unquestionable head turning ability and equipped so youll want to get behind the wheel as often as you can? This 1966 Shelby Cobra Replica is all that and more. Call today!
