The car was built by Steve Curle . ex mechanic for Emerson Fittipaldi (former Formula One driver)  and main carbuilder for Caroll Shelby in the 80 's and 90 's . Steve started his own Cobra shop  - ACE COBRAS - in the 90's . so he no longer had to work under Caroll - his cars are the most developed Cobras on the market . This car - built in 1993 - is a special model containing  a lot of specially ordered parts (endorsed by Carroll Shelby ) . Since Carroll 's cars had an aluminum 427 cui motor with which they had nothing but troubles . Steve let build a 351 cui motor by the race engine builder Clay Smith from Indianapolis . Clay Smith´s  engines provided much more power for higher speeds than the normal 427 cui engines  which were made ​​of steel and therefor were much too heavy for the small car. so some race Cobras were equipped with 289 cui machines.
This engine  is a " blueprinted " 351  cui "Windsor" with titanium pistonrods. The " 351 cui "Windsor" has the same weight as a 289 cui . this means lower weight but even much more power than a 427cui. For inquiries you can check with " George " ( boss at Clay Smith Engineering )  - George had this machine on the " Dyno " : " 600 Horse Power - on a bad day !" The transmission is a 5-speed racing gearbox . 3 -fold racing clutch . " Positraction " race differential - all parts are polished or chromed aluminum  - "Halibrand" racing wheels with a large steel nut -  street tires "Goodyear One" . it comes with a second set of rims with " slicks " ( racing tires) " Hoosers ".  
This Cobra is really a great. unique car and has a 1966 day registration as a "historical vehicle" - it was designed as a race car with side pipes  and countless racing extras. a front oilcooler (only for racing models there) . a huge electric fan for the radiator. all parts original or racing improved.
Location: Malibu. California - US$ 90. 000.
