Description

The vehicle includes an extensive list of mechanical service history, which includes a R&R intake manifold and transmission, a set of daily brake pads as well as track pads, PTFE fuel-line upgrade, and other maintenance records as well as a Certificate of Origin from Kirkham Motorsports. The Kirkham 427 KMS/SC is a standout – a vivid demonstration of how meticulous engineering can resurrect a legend. David Kirkham's team, known for their unparalleled precision, has brought the Shelby Cobra back to life. This isn't just about remaking a classic; it's about elevating it with superior materials like aircraft-grade aluminum, blending the past's charm with today's engineering marvels. Collaboration with Shelby American is the cherry on top. It's not just a seal of authenticity; it’s a nod to the Cobra's storied past. For collectors and enthusiasts, this car is more than a vehicle; it's a piece of history, a tangible link to a golden era of motoring. For some, it is the sound of a big block FE engine rumbling through the ceramic-coated side pipes and the brutal acceleration that pushes you back when you hit the gas. Others can’t help but stare at the curvaceous fenders and are drawn in by the beautiful craftsmanship of the metallic blue aluminum body with 2 matte grey racing stripes down the center. From the oil cooler and hood scoop to the roll bar and fender flares, this car is all about performance. Power comes from a 427ci Shelby aluminum-block V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission. The engine was dyno’d and produced 514 LB-FT Torque and 507 H.P. The vehicle features quick-jack bumperettes, aluminum fuel filler cap, a roll hoop, Cobra-branded wind wings, side-exit exhausts, and 427 Cobra fender badges. The cockpit features black bucket seats with matching black wool carpets and door liners, along with Simpson lap belts. Features include a dashboard-mounted rear-view mirror as well as a fire extinguisher and a power cutoff switch located behind the seats. The wood-rimmed steering wheel features a Cobra center cap and fronts Smiths and Lucas instrumentation including an 8k-rpm tachometer, a 180-mph reverse-sweep speedometer, and auxiliary gauges.
