    csx 3252

    This 1967 Shelby Cobra is an all-original car, but if it looks a little less aggressive than the side-piped, roll-barred, hood-scooped 427 Cobras you are used to seeing, it's because this is a Street Car version. These were a little less racy than the 427 Competition or Semi Competition cars, but still a legendary performer on the street or track. Sometimes called the "Gentleman's Cobra", the street cars often were powered by the Ford 428 big block V8 over the high-strung 427 side-oiler. Watch the episode to learn the story on this highly-original Shelby!

    Good video Gian and I have seen a couple of the 428 powered Cobras. To many people had the engines changed to 427s and ruined them.

    Nice car.

    I'm glad he clarified at the end that it was not a muscle car.

    Thanks for sharing Gian.

    I think all Cobra's have an interesting history. I have to check the # when I get back home.

    Me too (street look)
    I'm now a deplorable terrorist according to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors - and proud of it and my membership in NRA and Gun Owners of America.
