Gardener Douglas 427 Cobra

The world-famous Shelby Cobra 427 now with an estimated value of $1.5 million USD. The new car was designed in cooperation with Ford in Detroit. A new chassis was built using 4 in (101.6 mm) main chassis tubes, up from 3 in (76.2 mm) and coil spring suspension all around. The new car also had wide fenders and a larger radiator opening.


(CSX/CSB 3101–3360)

Some Cobra 427s were actually fitted with Ford's 428 cubic inches (7.01 L) engine, a long stroke, smaller bore, lower cost engine, intended for road use rather than racing. The AC Cobra was a financial failure that led Ford and Carroll Shelby to discontinue importing cars from England in 1967.

This Gardener Douglas 427 Cobra is a replica of the original Shelby Cobra 427, our Gardener Douglas Cobra is fitted with a 5.0 litre Ford V8 Edelbrock 4 barrel carburettor and provides a thrilling driving experience with the perfect sound track of a V8!
