1965 427 Shelby Cobra - If you ever get a chance to listen to Bill Cosby’s album “200 MPH” you’ll hear the amazing story of how Coz bumped into Carroll Shelby at the supermarket and got reprimanded for driving fast foreign sports cars. Shel told Coz that he was going to build Cobras for himself and Coz that would have dual-everything - dual roll bars, dual superchargers, dual horsepower, dual shifters, dual steering wheels, dual EVERYTHING!. (The last few “dual” items was Cosby’s schtick)
After months of anticipation and the purchase of Italian racing shoes and driving gloves, the Cobra arrives! And then, well... it might be on the internet or on a CD on eBay, but get it and get the rest of a very funny, semi-true story of Bill’s encounter with a supercharged 427 Cobra.
The story is exaggerated, but the cars were real. Shelby built 2, 427 Cobras that were double supercharged BEASTS! . It looks like a regular Cobra, except for the extra big hood scoop. Packing 800 hp (according to Shelby, and he wouldn’t exaggerate, would he?) and backed with a Ford T6 3-speed automatic, the Coz and Shel Cobras could run 0-to-60 in just 3.8 seconds and the quarter-mile in 11.9 seconds @116 mph.
Also, the Coz and Shel Cobras were the last 2 Cobra officially built by Shelby way back when, before production was recently started again.
