I am offering for sale my Unique Motorcars 427SC. It will provide you with the visceral speed, sound, and aggressive persona you expect from this iconic high-performance sports car. After completing my research in 2004, I chose to purchase the body/chassis package from Unique Motorcars of Gadsden, Alabama. My choice was based on Unique’s outstanding craftsmanship, stout design of chassis and coachwork components, and high level of customer service and build guidance. I also like how the 427SC authentically matches the body proportions and curvaceous shape of the original Shelby Cobra.  

I completed the build in 2007. The lightweight 351 Windsor high-performance engine, combined with front & rear coil-over suspension, and modified Jaguar IRS provide balanced, predictable, go-kart-like steering feel and handling. The car brings a smile to my face every time I drive it, and I get friendly ‘thumbs up’ gestures all the time. The car has been carefully maintained and has never encountered rain, ice or snow. It has logged 7,800 miles [12,500 km], and has never been raced or abused.

I am disclosing two items a purchaser may wish to address; an e-brake setup that could be tweaked to achieve more holding grip, and a very slight oil drip on the rear edge of the oil pan.

I will provide a detailed build book and all supporting documentation to the purchaser.
