Shelby 427 Cobras, Replicated & Real

Here’s some 3D video of a 427 Cobra replica leaving the Cars R Stars show at the Packard Proving Grounds. Actually, the only way that I knew it was a replica was the fact that it won an award for best replica. There was another Cobra at the show that I believe was real, but then I’m not a Cobra expert.

It had historical vehicle plates and the license plate surround said “1965 427 Cobra S/C”. The glove box cover was autographed by Carroll Shelby, though that’s not proof that the car is authentic, Carroll would sign lots of things, particularly if you donated money to his foundation for kids with heart disease. The nice lady with the car said it was real Cobra. I tapped a fender and the body was aluminum, not plastic, but when I asked her if it was a genuine S/C she gave me a blank look and said to ask her husband, who was not nearby. It had all the right touches of a real 427 Cobra, though, down to the safety wires on the center lock knockoff wheels and a fire extinguisher mounted between the two seats.

The only thing that didn’t look right was the fender badge, which read 520 Cobra Ford, instead of the usual 427 Cobra Ford. That might, though, be a small custom touch, a reference to the car’s horsepower, since 520 is often cited as the HP rating of the 427 in the Cobra.
