***PLEASE READ IN IT'S ENTIRETY*** I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THIS FACTORY BUILT MIDSTATES COBRA REPLICA (BOUGHT OUT BY SHELL VALLEY REPLICAS). I AM RELUCTANTLY SELLING DUE TO FINANCES (IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING WHY). THIS 18 YEAR OLD COBRA WAS RECENTLY RE-POWERED WITH WHAT YOU SEE HERE WITH JUST UNDER 300 "BREAK IN" MILES ON IT. THE CLUTCH, BELLHOUSING AND TRANSMISSION ARE NEW ALSO. THE CAR ITSELF HAS A TOTAL OF 5200 MILES. ENTIRE ENGINE IS NEW EXCEPT FOR THE VALVE COVERS AND OIL FILTER ADAPTER. NEVER RACED OR ABUSED!

THE EXPERT ENGINE/TRANSMISSION INSTALLATION WAS DONE BY ERA REPLICAS OF NEW BRITAIN, CONNECTICUT. (FYI) GO ON THE CARROLL SHELBY WEBSITE AND SEE WHAT THEY GET FOR THESE COMPLETE 526 FE ENGINES $$$$$. YOU WILL NOT FIND ANOTHER REPLICA IN THIS PRICE RANGE WITH A BETTER ENGINE.
A TREMEC TKO 5 SPEED TRANSMISSION HANDLES THE SHIFTING. REAR END IS 9 INCH FORD WITH DETROIT LOCKER AND 4.11 GEARS. THE WHEELS ARE VINTAGE TRU-SPOKE WIRE WHEELS. THE BACK WHEELS WERE WIDENED BY STOCKTON WHEEL CO. TO ACCOMMODATETHE 15 INCH WIDE HOOSIER TIRES. FORD DISC BRAKES UP FRONT AND DRUMS IN THE REAR. I ALSO HAVE THE PAINTED HOOD AND IT'S HARDWARE WHICH GOES WITH THE CAR AS WELL.
THERE ARE SOME MINOR ISSUES I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT. THE SPEEDOMETER IS NOT ACCURATE (NEEDS A DIFFERENT SIZE SPEEDOMETER GEAR INSTALLED). CAN ALSO USE STIFFER COIL OVER SPRINGS IN THE REAR (TOO SOFT). LASTLY, THE CLEAR COAT HAS PEELED NEAR THE GAS FILLER DOOR FROM PROLONGED GAS EXPOSURE. (SEE LAST IMAGE).
INSPECTIONS PRIOR TO BIDDING ARE WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED. A CERTIFIED CHECK PAYMENT MUST BE MADE WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION ENDING, UNLESS OTHER PRIOR ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE. THE BUYER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIPPING/PICKUP OF VEHICLE. BEEN BUYING AND SELLING ON EBAY OVER 20 YEARS! GOOD LUCK!
