RESERVE HAS BEEN LOWERED! RELISTED TO SELL!! This beautiful Cobra replica turns heads wherever it goes. She even caused an accident once. fortunately minor and no one was hurt. This car was built by the company Shell Valley themselves. It was built on their own frame using their own suspension setup and all. The build took place in the year 2000-2001. Shell Valley actually used it as their company show car. I have an article showing where they won best paint. best interior. and best 427 Cobra replica at the Knotts Berry Farm show in the summer of June 04. 2001. The car was then sold to an owner in Florida who put about 3000 miles on it over the next ten years. I bought it in September of 2012 and have doubled the miles. I bought it to drive. not sit in the garage. When Shell Valley built it they originally put in a bad boy 460 motor and ran the car at the track turning a 9. 2 second qtr at 142 mph (according to the magazine article). A mild 460 was dropped in the car before selling to make it a little safer to drive. The 460 that is now in it doesn't seem to have much more than stock engine with mild cam. 4v. and headers. I've taken it out on several cruises and to several shows and it runs out good and as stated before. gets lots of attention. I have never had a car get photographed so much. It really opens eyes if I happen to have the hardtop on. Most people have never seen one. The only thing this car needs in my opinion is a good detailing in the engine compartment and maybe some updated chrome or aluminum to brighten it up.

Backing it all up is a '72 Ford C6 automatic with a modified manual-shift body and an aluminum cooler. The engine is also treated to an oil cooler and a Griffin aluminum radiator. The hoses are stainless steel–wrapped. while chrome FRPP valve covers complete the package. A special air cleaner seals to the hoodscoop.

The 460 is packaged in a Shell Valley 427 SC replica kit with a ladder frame made from 2x4-inch structural-steel tubing. A '72 Ford 9-inch rearend with 3. 00:1 (may have been changed. feels more like 3. 50 to me) gears is equipped with Moser axles and a Detroit Locker limited-slip unit. Jounce is controlled by SVC Silver Bullet II adjustable-height aluminum coilover shocks. Shell Valley is the only kit car company making its own shocks. which it also sells individually. The company uses urethane bushings and sleeves for more precise action.

SVC makes most of the parts used in its kits. in fact. The company believes these new parts are superior to used. donor-car parts. and it reduces dependency on outside suppliers. Another SVC product is the aluminum. four-bar. triangulated rear suspension designed to emulate NASCAR practice.

Up front. a Mustang rack-and-pinion power-steering assembly is used. along with 11-inch GM disc brakes all around (the rears use Cadillac calipers). The SVC dual master-cylinder brake system uses an adjustable bias bar for fine-tuning the front-to-rear balance. Tubular front A-arms are also made by SVC and are stronger and lighter than the Mustang II pieces used on many kits (they are a lower-cost option on SVC kits as well). American Racing 15-inch Thrust II wheels (8 inches front/10 inches rear) give a classic stance and mount Cooper Cobra tires (235/60 front. 295/50 rear).

The SVC body resembles most other Cobra replicas. with a few differences. Many kit manufacturers have increased the length of their wheelbases. but SVC retains the 90-inch wheelbase used on the original Cobra. The body is a mixture of fiberglass and Kevlar for extra strength and less weight. and an optional taller hood is used to gain more room for the high-rise manifold. Rich also opted for a removable hardtop for all-weather use. Dan Cerney at Phil Spady Dodge in Columbus. North Carolina. applied four shimmering coats of DuPont Platinum Chroma Base paint. followed by twin gold stripes in DuPont Chroma Lussion and clear. DuPont Chroma Lussion is a so-called color-change paint that varies from deep gold to pinkish red to purple depending on the angle of the light. It is spectacular—though quite pricey—stuff.

Once the drivetrain and paint were in good shape. it was time to install a killer interior. Black leather SVC buckets were used with nylon carpets. The dash was painted a matching Platinum and sports VDO Gold Classic instruments. A Grant 15-inch wood-rimmed steering wheel looks right at home and is complemented by a wood glovebox door. A Painless wiring harness hooks it all together.

So how did the car turn out? Well. when the judges at the Knott's Berry Farm kit car show first laid eyes on it. they awarded it the Best Interior. Best Paint. and Best 427 Cobra Replica trophies! The triple-crown of kit show awards. so to speak.  

For further details or photos you may text me or call at 228-623-1650.

I will consider partial trades on a Mustang convertible. Let me know what you have. All years considered but prefer older ones. The wipers do not work on this car. I never drive it when it's raining so I never think to do anything with it. I believe the wiper motor is bad though.
