1967 Shelby 427 Cobra at Auction
Race car driver Ken Miles set a record in a 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra which has never been duplicated. His Shelby 427 Cobra went from a dead stop to 100 mph and then to a dead stop again in just 13.8 seconds. The 427 Cobra utilized an all-independent coil-spring suspension with a large-diameter steel tube frame. Four-wheel disc brakes helped also. The 427’s alumium body formed over lightweight steel-tube formers and provided a tremendous power-to-weight ratio. This week, Auctions America listed a 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra at their upcoming Hilton Head Island Auction during the Hilton Head Island Concours. Will it bring $1 million? Click here to see the ad.
“Surely one of the burliest, meanest-looking automobiles ever offered, the Cobra is a beautiful combination of all that is exciting in open-road sports motoring while enjoying legendary American power and reliability. ”
