1965 West Coast Cobra Roadster


+ HST and licensing

Let’s be honest, here: you could spend $750,000+ on an actual Shelby Cobra or half that for a “brand-new” one…for a car that’s been made for decades everywhere around the world.

Our Cobra is a well-done West Coast kit with a General Motors 350 V8 engine and automatic transmission—it runs and drives well, is reliable, and looks great. Run as-is, enjoy the ride, and take pride in the fact you’ve left money in your pocket for nicer hotels on cruises…and won’t be too scared to leave it alone for more than a minute.

This is a recent build that we’d be happy to tell you more about in person, with approximately ~300 horsepower, and automatic transmission, it definitely moves like a sports car should. With redone electrical, we’ve added an ebrakes, completed the gauges, and have the engine updated to run like a top. We’re also willing to work with the buyer to finish or update to your final expectations.

It’s a car: get in and drive it!
