1967 Cobra Roadster
1967 Cobra Roadster
Cobra enthusiasts don't have to look very hard to find a great variety of components and aftermarket choices and support. Unfortunately, the amount of time and money involved in vetting those parts and building a ground-up custom becomes simply mind-boggling. Enthusiasts sometimes spend years writing check after check to shop after shop creating a car that, by the time it's finished, some of them don't even want.
For consignment a completed project and done very well to boot! Antiques and Collectables provided the kit on the form of the body and frame, plus some accessories like gauges, and headlights among various other and sundry essentials. Throw in some heavy hitting power, a top loader 4 speed and I can smell the rubber burning and we haven't even twisted the ignition.
Beautifully molded fiberglass infused with black eliminates any need for painting or worrying about any chipping. Throw on a high luster gel finish and put your sunglasses on because this thing is gonna glow at night with a full moon…Hoooooowwwwwl! Hertz rent-a racer Shelby Mustang Gold provides the stripes, and now we are ready to go racin'. Stainless steel bumper jacks and nifty badging, flashy 10 spoke wheels wrapped with 165's in front and 295's on back and Jet Hot coated side pipes that snake along the rockers of this machine and just growl at you, woah! I'm searching for the nearest winding back road that the po-po would never even think of patrolling.
Swing open the black vinyl paneled door with pleated storage, climb behind the wood Cobra emblemed wheel, and stare upon a profusion of gauges and switches embedded within a padded dashboard that are sure to be enough to distract you just momentarily from the upcoming 35MPH curve. Black carpet floods the floor, and stitched “Cobra” carpet floor mats are thick enough to remove your shoes and squiggle your toes in them. Remind yourself you are securely fastened into the simple vinyl clad bomber style buckets with Cobra embroidered 3-way harnesses, so push the edge on the G- forces to come.
'Keep it simple' is a good philosophy when it comes to performance and reliability. And the builders of this clean classic, Dependable Auto from West Chester, Pennsylvania did exactly that by equipping the car with Ford's no holds barred 460ci big block. At the top of the fully sorted mill, a polished air cleaner funnels oxygen and mixes with fossils in a Holly 750 carburetor. That juice box rides between jet black fuel lines, a clean intake and an MSD Pro-Billet distributor that flames Mallory blazing red plug wires. Jet Hot coated headers evacuate the spent gasses quickly down to the side pipes. Strapped on back is a 4-Speed Toploader for you to grind away at.
Benefitting from powder coated technology this pristine undercarriage shows nary a bit of any rust. All surfaces are clean and mean and seen is a 2.92 posi-traction rear.
Great looks, great sound, great power, great performance, and it will be great fun. Isn't life great?!
