Here's Your Chance to Own a Mint Shelby Cobra Replica
The 1965 Shelby Cobra might be one of the most sought-after cars ever made, which is why that one that shows up to your local car show is most likely a replica. As the prices continue to skyrocket for an original Shelby Cobra, the idea of driving a replica becomes more alluring. But if you’re going to drive a replica, why not make it as exquisite as the original? Enter the Kirkham 427 KMS/SC. These aluminum-bodied beauties are among the finest examples of a replica Shelby Cobra, and if you’re in the market, there’s one currently for sale in Springfield, MO at Motorcars International. According to the listing, this Kirkham Cobra was built in 2004 and it has just 2,650 miles on the odometer.

In place of the 625-hp aluminum 427 V-8 that Kirkham will sell you for $24,995, the original owner of this car shoehorned a Shelby supercharged 496 V-8 into the engine bay. Output is estimated at more than 700 hp!
Just about any Shelby Cobra is guaranteed to get looks, but this Kirkham Cobra is a definite show-stopper. The body’s mirror-finish is only the start, too, as the details start to reveal themselves like the painted stripes, black side pipes, polished roll bar or the classic-look Trigo wheels wrapped in wide Goodyear Eagle rubber. The images of the cabin and the undercarriage only cement this car’s quality and beauty.
Considering all of the upgrades and its pristine condition, this Shelby Cobra almost seems like a steal with an asking price of $129,500. Or if you don’t have that much cash in your piggy bank, it can also be financed for $1,127.20 per month.
