Unique offers you the only Cobra replica ever recognized
as "The Best Cobra replica" by Petersen's Specialty
Car magazine. Unique was also selected for the coveted "Good
Manufacturing Practices Award" by the Assn. of Handcrafted
Automobiles, longt-time sponsors of the annual Knott's Berry
Farm Specialty Car Show. in Buena
Do you know
which Cobra roadster is actually the rarest, the most competitive, and
the most desirable collectible? It's the small-block racing models, immediate
predecessor of the 427 series. Based upon the 289 Competition Cobra. (or USRRC Cobra, as it was
originally labeled), these cars featured wider front and rear fenders
(that is, wider than provided on the original "slab-side" 289s),
cut-back doors, and an added oil cooler opening in front. There were originally
only five of these 1964 Competition Cobras. produced, thus rendering the "FIA
Cobra" (as it would later become known) the most desirable of the
original Shelby roadsters. Collectors would eventually be required to
shell out over one million dollars for one of these irreplaceable reptiles.
Unique's entry (below) will set you back for considerably less...
Unique's 289 Flareside is available to you in both component
and turnkey form, either directly from Unique or from any one
of our dealers nationwide. Like our big-block roadster, the
small-block Flareside chassis sports the high-performance Jag/Salisbury
IRS rear assembly and 11" vented disc brakes in front.
Here's a superb, very reasonably-priced Cobra replica that you
can drop a small-block Ford V8 into without breaking tradition...
