This exceptional 1966 Shelby Cobra Mark IV is a prime example of what a replicar should be.
The car is an Everett-Morrison 427SC Gen IV, delivered in 2007. It is constructed around a chassis of 4″ round stainless steel tube rails. The ‘hand-laid’ vinyl ester resin ‘427SC’ body was finished in Tuxedo Black gel coat w/white stripes.
The black vinyl interior looks as good as the day it was installed and each bucket seat is equipped with a Simpson 4-point racing-style lap/shoulder harness. A full compliment of gauges is perfectly positioned in the dash and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD player has been installed – but may not sound as good as the side pipes. Ferrule set stainless steel heat shields lined with wheel-well foam are built into the foot boxes. A tilt wheel, heater/defroster system and full stainless roll bar complete the package.
Under the hood is a Shelby American aluminum block 427FE that has been stroked to 468ci, balanced and blueprinted. It was built using Shelby Racing components – forged pistons, H-beam rods, aluminum heads and ‘Road Race’ baffled oil pan. It is fitted with a Holley 850cfm double-pumper, electric fuel pump, hydraulic roller cam, roller rockers and E&M oil-cooler system. A 26″ HD radiator with 1-1/4″ tubes and a 23″ shroud manages cooling. Exhaust is routed through stainless side pipes and the resulting output is 550bhp-560lb/ft of torque. The FE big-block is backed by a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed with Centerforce flywheel/clutch and full Lakewood bell housing. The Trackion Lok aluminum differential houses 8.8″/3.55:1 gears and connects billet heat-treated half-shafts.
The suspension is a fully independent EM design that utilizes coil-over shocks and stainless steel control arms. Brakes are power-assisted 4-wheel disc with 13″f/11.65″r rotors and brake cooling ducts. Compomotive Motosport 17″ alloys utilize a 5-bolt pattern, but maintain the vintage Halibrand knock-off appearance.
The 21-gallon fuel tank w/foam baffling can be upgraded to a true racing fuel cell by simply adding a bladder. This is a serious Cobra and our current owner has taken very good care of it – he is now ready to pass it on to the next caretaker.
