West Coast Cobra
1966 Cobra replica kit
Opportunity knocks with this exceptional one-of-a-kind Cobra kit. No expense has been spared. There are top-notch parts and tasteful custom fabricated touches throughout. Only one objective to build the best possible Cobra in every way. Over $100K invested.
Powered by a custom-built Awesome (in Delaware) Ford 660 cid big block engine [with a completed price tag of $42,145]. Tremec ‘T56 Magnum LS’ style 6-speed transmission [$7,165]. Kinsler 3-piece fuel injection manifold set up for EFI [$4,893]. Brembo hydraulic braking system to stop her on a dime [$4,424]. This most certainly is not your grandad’s Cobra, but it’s certain to be a head turner at any event once you’ve completed the build.
The rock-solid West Coast chassis is overbuilt and fully primed & painted to inhibit rust. That Wavetrac differential is beefed up to meet the demands of the horsepower and torque.
I shot all these photos of this work-in-progress Cobra where it’s located, in its splendid stable in Bedford, New Hampshire.
You’re perhaps wondering why is this kit is available for sale. Sadly, it belonged to my late brother who passed away suddenly, unexpectedly. He spent countless hours designing and crafting the finer details of this, his ‘bucket list’ drivin’ machine. I’d like to find a good home for this unfinished road rocket so his vision can be brought to fruition and taken through its paces out on the open asphalt.
The engine compartment componentry includes:
The one component set that my brother hadn’t yet had fabricated were the exhaust headers. He was saving that underhood item for last, and thus those headers must be ordered or custom fabricated.
