Description

Superformance # 1107 Cobra. Stunning black with Gold stripes. ThisCobra is as real as you can get without a million dollar price tag. The vehicle was assembled in South Africa at the Superformance plant and shippedinto the United States. Superformance is known to have the best builtand most accurate replica Cobra in the world. This vehicle is outfittedwith a real 427 FE Side Oiler which was purchased/built by anascar engine builder from the sixties and seventies in eastern Kentucky. The motor has since hadaluminum heads installed, two four-barrel carbs., and has a solid liftcam. The engine builder states the engine puts out 525 HP. The exhausthas been jet-coated inside and out. The vehicle has both a mechanicalfuel pump as well as an electric pump in case you want to race thevehicle.
The body and finish are exceptional and have never been damaged. This is the onlyblack with gold stripes Cobra I have seen and is absolutely beautiful. There are few chips in the paint behind the exit of the side pipes onthe quarter panel (as they all do). The gauges are the original styleand read in celsius and the odometer goes backwards just like theoriginals did and are laid out in the correct order. I do have a top,side windows, and a cockpit cover that goes with the vehicle but havenever been installed.
The interior is in excellent condition and has no signs of wear. The vehicle is equipped with 5-point harnesses for both seats. The shift handle is original to the "real ones".
The wheels are original Halibrand Cobrapin-drive wheels and Goodyear billboard tires. The tires are still like new and no road rash or damage on the wheels. Independent rearsuspension and Wilwood disc brake kit on all four corners. All of thefluids were just drained and refilled. The front and rear have adjustable coil-over's. The suspension has been professionally tuned for the track and remains that way still for street driving. The tires are bias-ply race tires that I run on the street for added safety to stick to the road.
Clutch and transmission are excellent. The rear-mailseal is leaks a little bit when not regularly driven and I have the parts to fix just don'thave the time to do it. I have always run Brad Penn racing oil in theengine. To duplicate this car would be well over $85,000. Theseoriginal side-oiler engines are bringing well over $25,000 when you canfind them and the wheels will cost you another $8,000 or more when youcan find them.
Thevehicle has never been jerked around, tires spun, the clutch dumped, or any other formof abuse. It has been run on the tracks at high speed as it isdesigned to do. It has been ran at Road Atlanta and VIR. The decals that are seen in some of the photos are static-cling and do come with the car however they are not currently installed.
The car is scary fastand sounds great. The details put into this car are absolute outstanding and true to the original cars.
