Kirkham 474 is an awesome car with its polished /brushed aluminum body and lightening fast Keith Craft 482 aluminum fuel injected motor .   It is loaded with only the best that Keith  Craft builds.   The Kirkham body is polished to a mirror finish and is equipped very nicely .   Since it has less than 1000 miles and brand new Avon tires the beautiful serpent is ready for anything.


Amongst the Cobra community. there's little debate about the fact that the Kirkham is as close to an original Cobra that you can get without spending millions.   One can argue that the Kirkhams took a good thing and even made it better with suspension improvements and other upgrades to make it driver friendly.


It's equipped with:

aluminum Pond 427 block aluminum Edelbrock heads aluminum Edelbrock intake aluminum Kirkham pulleys aluminum Kirkham surge tank and coolant reservoir aluminum Kirkham 1 pc. alternator bracket Aviad high-capacity oil pan Mass Flow Fuel Injection MSD distributor Keith Craft plug wires Cobra LeMans cast/ribbed aluminum valve covers Ceramic coated headers and sidepipes Oil cooler assy with remote filter

CHASSIS. BODY PARTICULARS

seamless DOM TIG-welded steel frame 4-wheel independent suspension The glistening coachwork was hand-formed [by true old-world craftsmen] from 0. 060" thickness alloy aluminum with our latest production tooling. The body skin is much harder and stronger (dent resistant) than the original AC/Shelby machines of the'60s. Drop-dead dazzling doesn't even begin to describe the mirror finish.

It would cost $130. 00 to duplicate this car and a year wait

Words cannot capture the thrill and exhilaration this 650 horsepower work of art delivers in just the shortest drive.

 

The car is titled in Georgia as a 1966 Kirkham. which should make it easy for European buyers.  The car is for sale elsewhere. and seller reserves the right to stop this auction at any time.
