Shell Valley 427SC Cobra replica, SVX16071. Lexus Indigo Blue Pearl Metallic/Viper Silver metallic stripes.

Professionally built in 2011; runs on premium pump gas. Driven only a little over 1,300 miles [2,100 km].

With its Keith Craft–built 427/482 correct V8 slide-oiler and surrounding engine compartment it’s always a head-turner and a crowd pleaser at any carshow.

No expense was spared in this magnificent build.

I will miss this Indigo Blue beauty… the swaggering persona… the innumerable ‘thumbs up!’ from other passing vehicles, the shouts of ‘Nice car!,’ and the groups of people who wait to hear the menacing rumble of the engine starting up after a carshow has ended.

As with most things in life that I care about and are not around anymore, I am surely blessed to have spent that time with this car. Besides myself, I was glad to meet other people who could appreciate and enjoy that there were virtually no corners cut or expense spared with this magnificent build. It is time for someone else to have that experience.
