Custom roadster

From out of the past prowls the muscle car that smoked ‘em all in the mid 1960′s. She blew away Ferraris, Corvettes, Porsches? The Shelby Cobra was the fastest and sexiest muscle car for competition and street use ever produced. And talk about limited, only 538 1964 Mark II models were ever built. From 1962 to 1968, Carroll Shelby built only 654 small-block Cobras and 350 big-block versions. And yet the Cobra’s muscular profile and thundering V8 engine defined the most recognized image in motorcar history. It was often referred to as “A jet engine on a roller skate.” It was gorgeous standing still or whizzing by in a blur. And the legend is back for you to possess?.with your own AC Cobra kit.

The first 75 Cobra Mark I?s, including the prototypes, were fitted with V8 Ford Windsor engines, the 260 cubic inch model. And although they weighed in at almost 500 pounds less than the Chevy Corvette, Shelby?s original AC Cobras were designed to be ?Corvette Beaters.?

And they were.

In 1964, on a British country motorway, an AC Cobra Coupe famously reached 186 mph (299 km/h). Because she was such a powerful machine, manufacturers advertised the horsepower of the Shelby Mustang GT 500 as being 335 to appease insurance companies. Actually the horsepower of the Shelby Mustang GT 500 was somewhere closer to 400.

With AC Cobra kit, you can build your very own dream Cobra replica, making a “Corvette Beater” of your own. With an AC Cobra kit you have total control over the construction of your car, from interior to engine to paint job. The car of your dreams is affordable and can be exactly what you want it to be, from an authentic replication to a custom roadster with any bells and whistles you can dream up, even bells and whistles that didn?t exist in the 1960s.

So what are you waiting for? Another gorgeous muscle car to blow by you? Get an AC Cobra kit and get building!
