This Contemporary Cobra built by Contemporary Classic Motor Car Company in Mamaroneck, New York, chassis# CCX-3-3422 was crafted after the 1965 Shelby Cobra chassis number CSX3045 original Cobra as the master tooling to create the one-piece fiberglass mold for Contemporary Classic?s Cobra replicas. Since the late 1970s Contemporary Classic has been universally recognized as one of those top-rung Go-To Cobra replicas (alongside E.R.A. of New Britain, Connecticut) for serpent enthusiasts seeking a high quality of engineering and all the vestiges of the look, the persona and the spirited performance of Shelby?s original menace of the motorways. It boasts a round-tube ladder chassis and suspension setup very similar to Shelby?s originals, and the rear end is a rugged Jag/Salisbury setup, also faithfully authentic in performance to those Salisbury setups in the originals. Stir an original cast-iron 427FE engine and a rugged Ford Toploader gearbox into the mix, and you?ve got the original-faithful beauty you see here! And as these Contemporary Classic Cobras have matured just a bit, they have also acquired the patina one would expect of a Shelby original, so that the original/ authenticity factor is enhanced accordingly. Possessing this li?l red reptile is as close as you will ever get to owning and driving any original Shelby American 427 Cobra without investing well into seven figures of hard-earned U.S. Dollars.
