Contemporary Classic Motor Car Company (Mamaroneck, New York) was renowned for producing one of the best engineered, & most ‘Legend-correct’ Cobra replicas ever. It kills me to post this, but after years of providing us with visceral driving adventures, today we need something with four seats for the family.

This former concours entrant, built in 1994, was returned to its original Street Version glory in 2006 with period-correct Smitty undercar (and muffled) exhaust, Shelby Navy Blue (PPG 5387) paint by none other than Bruce Bunn (Jodeco Auto Body, McDonough, Georgia), and upgraded to Peter Bayer–spec’d adjustable front coil-overs.

This drivin’ machine performs and rides great, the stance is perfect. It continues to be well maintained by Cobra Restorers with only 23,481 miles [38,000 km].

This blue beauty is registered as a “1965 Ford Roadster.” Here in Georgia, the registration also serves as the title.
