1964 Shelby Cobra Replica

1964 Cobra Replica 289 4 Speed FIA Replica by Unique Motorcars

 

Proudly built here in the USA

 

Titled as a 1964 Ford and preferred by many. for sale is a rarely seen small block FIA Cobra

 

These cars run cooler. are Lighter & are much more fun to drive when compared to the more common 427 Cars!

 

In 1960. when his racing career was cut short due to heart issues. Carroll Shelby looked for a way to continue to 'scratch the itch' he had for racing cars and decided that building a Corvette. Ferrari killing race car of his own was the way to go.

 

Shelby managed to get Ford Motor Co. to “lend” him a small-block V8 to marry to the AC Ace sports car chassis. And so begun the birth of the legendary 'COBRA' - a name that came to him in a dream.

 

By 1964. the Cobras were a force to be reckoned with amongst the SCCA. US Road Racing Championship and the domestic FIA events of Daytona and Sebring. And at the hands of such legendary factory drivers like Ken Miles. Dan Gurney. Phil Hill. Bob Johnson. Billy Krause and Bob Bondurant. the Cobras were regularly taking Corvette. Jaguar and Aston Martin to task.

 

This 1964 Shelby Cobra by Unique Motorcars was a no expense spared build for a demanding client who wanted to pay homage to the famous FIA/SCCA small block race cars.

 

If you simply want a car that SORT of looks like a Cobra. please don't buy this car.

If you are looking for a correct FIA Cobra. this might be the car that you are looking for.

 

From the Shelby team Guardsman blue paint. Monza fuel filler. quick jacks racing style mirrors and side exhaust are magnificent.   I challenge anyone to show me a dash board more period correct than this one.    Tach and Speedo were silk screened with correct 1964 Stewart Warner BOLD font by world renounced Bob's Speedo Shop and correct needles were crafted for this car.  

Of course this car has been fitted with a correct Salisbury independent axle just like the original.

This axle features inboard brakes and correct mounting points.

 

The workmanship in the car looks  incredibly well executed. Under the hood is a Roller Rocker 302 small block V8 coupled to an aluminum radiator. aluminum Cobra valve covers. high-volume fuel pump. high-volume oil pump. oil cooler. 8-quart racing oil pan and jet coated custom stainless headers.

 

The engine is backed by a correct Ford top loader manual transmission driving a limited slip differential in the Jag independent rear suspension.

 

Adjustable coil over shocks and rack & pinion steering further aid in delivering the better than authentic handling and feel.

 

Additionally notable features include authentic bucket seats. Stewart Warner instruments. Moto Lita steering wheel. AC pedals. racing safety harnesses. quick release fire extinguisher. full cockpit tonneau cover. plus removable soft-top and side curtains.   

 

Note: Soft top has yet to be taken out of the box due to the fact that this car has never seen rain.

 

Wheels:

Compo motive 15"  period correct bolt on wheels

Rear wheels are 10" w/ 5. 5" back spacing. 5 on 4. 5" bolt spacing.

Front wheels are 8" w/ 3. 75" back spacing. 5 on 4. 5" bolt spacing.

 

 

Tires:

This car has less than 4000 total miles. but tires were changed to BF Goodrich TA's 1400 miles ago because owner did not like the feel of previously installed Dunlop's


Yes. there are many poorly built replicas out there that are an embarrassment to Carroll Shelby's legacy.

 

This Faithfully built FIA Cobra would not be an embarrassment to anyone who drove it.

This car features exact type gauges used in 1964. correct wheel based and cockpit dimensions and correct Moto-lita Steering wheel.  

 

If you are happy enough to drive around in a poorly built Frankenstein car full of donor parts from a junk yard. please don't but this car.    "If you are going to own a Cobra. own the one that is most like the original" – Unique Motors

 

 With real FIA Cobras selling for $1M+. this is the next best car that can be enjoyed without concern.

Small Block so NO OVER HEATING HOT ENGINES like Big Block Engines.

I have a collection of cars and motorcycles this is an Awesome car

Car is Absolutely Beautiful - Includes Picture Album of the Build

 

Constructed by Unique Motorcars in 1992.  

This car was in dry storage in North Carolina until recently hence the reason for such low (under 4K) mileage.

Properly "Dressed" Small Block Engine in the 289 FIA car.

The first cars had a 289 C. I. D. block. thus the 289 name designation for the car Model.

Top Loader 4 Speed Transmission

Four wheel disc brakes with SSBC calipers and braided lines

Adjustable Coil spring front and coil spring rear suspension

Jag IRS rear Powr-Lok

Polyurethane suspension bushings

Compo motive PS Engineering true knock-off cast wheels in correct size and offset

No Stripes so the car is most accurate to the original.

Battery cut-off switch and rear-mounted battery as original on competition cars

The Original dashboard layout of the 289 FIA and the Forward Braced Roll Bar.

All period correct gauges down to the FONT and needle type

Correct switches

Full convertible Top and Windows - Never been used still in protective case

Tonneau Cover

Correct turn and taillight lenses

Salisbury limited slip differential.

Side and rear view mirrors.

Original style shifter and hand brake lever.

Carpeted Interior and trunk compartment.

Wind wings.

Correct  seats

Original style latch-lock seat belts.

Moto - Lita® wooden steering wheel.

Monza style filler.

Aluminum hi-performance radiator

Oil cooler and braided lines.

Side pipes and headers

Forward mounted steel roll bar. chassis mounted.

Quick Jacks

The bodywork replicates the European FIA regulated form but was produced in fiberglass so there is no worrying about denting delicate  aluminum.

 

 

 

The Car starts easily and runs very well. very fast. very loud. NOTE-YOU WILL BE NOTICED IN THIS CAR. so get used to it.

 

Unlike Big Block cars. this car never overheats and never roasts the occupants out of the cockpit.

Most big block cars are fine in a straight line but don't corner very well due to up front weight.

This car provides nimble steering as is carves through corners with ease.

The car is a joy to drive and very comfortable on long drives.
