Hurricane Motorsports 427SC Cobra #1110, finished in dazzling Viper Blue and Wimbledon White LeMans stripes.

Hurricane Motorsports #1110 has been painstakingly finished as close to the original spec as possible with either ’60s era (engine and transmission) or brand-new parts. Only the best for this serpent.

To that end, who better to execute the coachwork than the legendary Cobra paint artist Jeff “Batman” Miller in his Temecula facility (Miller Customs). This car was one of the first Hurricanes that Jeff worked his magic on, so he took extra care in producing amazing results. He truly is an artist!

To match the original body shape, she needed an engine that represented that bygone era. For that I went to Ford FE and Cobra engine specialist Southern Automotive. Only a big block would do for this beast. This period 390FE engine was bored and stroked to provide 426ci and an awe-inspiring 450 horsepower as well as a matching 450 ft./lbs. of torque. That power moves this beautiful machine through a 4-speed toploader transmission with a speed and sound that will take your breath away. Nothing beats that FE sound!

With her build completed in 2008, she has spent her life always garaged and covered in southern California. No harsh winters here. She has never been raced or driven hard, just lovingly maintained for 1,700 adrenaline-soaked miles [2,700 km].

As a California car, she is properly registered under California’s coveted SB100 process:
