Vehicle Story

This 1966 Shelby Cobra 2-seat roadster Shell Valley replica is the product of a custom father-son build that was completed in California, and which incorporates a performance drivetrain into a reinforced chassis. It is powered by a balanced and blueprinted 302ci V8 paired with a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, and is registered in California as a 1966 Ford. The engine was bored 0.30" over, decked, and features a Cobra injection system, GT40 heads, roller cams, Mahle flat-top pistons with Hastings rings, Ford Racing cam and lifters, a new MacLeod clutch, a Detroit rear end, and much more. Finished in Hugger Orange with black stripes, this Cobra is smog-exempt and now offered with a clear California title in the seller’s name.

The Kevlar-reinforced body was professionally painted in Hugger Orange with dual black racing stripes. Features include tubular chrome bumpers, dual roll bars aft of the cockpit, vented fenders up front, and chromed side pipes.  

Factory correct-style wheels with spinner caps are wrapped in Toyo tires of unknown age. The triangulated rear suspension is race-inspired.

The interior is fitted with black vinyl racing seats with G-Force racing harnesses, black carpet, and Dynamat along with Hugger Orange color-matched door panels and dashboard. A dash-mounted rearview mirror is included. 

SW instrumentation is framed by a wood-rimmed 3-spoke steering wheel and consists of a 180-mph speedometer, 8k tachometer, and gauges for oil pressure, water temperature, oil temperature, voltage, and fuel level. The odometer shows 525 miles, and the seller reports that there are 100 miles on the replacement engine.

The custom balanced and blueprinted 302ci V8 was built by Toshi of Santa Rosa, California using Summit Racing Parts. The block was bored and honed to 0.30" over and then decked prior to the addition of aluminum GT40 heads, ARP head bolts, and Felpro performance head gaskets, and followed by a fresh three-angle valve job. Other upgrades consist of Scorpion roller rockers, new connecting rods with upgraded cap screw rod bolts, Mahle flat-top pistons and Hastings rings, brass freeze plugs, a Ford Racing E303 camshaft, cam bearings, rod, and mains, Ford Racing roller lifters, Melling oil pump, an ARP oil pump driveshaft, a custom fabricated stainless steel fuel cell and Cobra injection. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission with a new MacLeod clutch, resurfaced flywheel, and a Detroit locker rear end. Computer balancing was carried out by Selby & Sons machine shop Santa Rosa, California.

Additional undercarriage photos can be found in the gallery.

The sale includes documentation on the build, which was carried out by a father and son located in California. The vehicle is registered in California as a 1966 Ford and is smog-exempt.

@Hollywood – The GT 40 engine ( and heads) was a 427 ci single overhead cam engine that won Le Mans 4 times against Ferrari in the 60’s do I seriously doubt the “ GT -40 Heads” reference since the 302 is not an overhead came engine? WTFO? ...

Hi Hollywood , these are the new aluminum GT-40 heads . You can google them or search on eBay also . Thanks for the input , that definitely needed clarification . Kind Regards

@Totodua – I see also the paint 🧐 and wonder about it. Maybe some work is needed. The color is orange under strong light and red if you have few light e.g. cloud etc...The effect is desame with the hugger orange Camaro I have.. ...

Ok Wow the 2 replies I sent with the picture came thru . There’s no paint issues etc . I’m a collector & have quite a few cars . All my cars are pretty much perfect . I love this car especially now with the new motor . I hate to admit this but the only reason I’m selling it is I’m a pretty big guy ( yes over weight ) & I don’t actually fit in it too well . That’s as nice as I can put it . 😭

I checked with the builder . He said it was built to be around 400 HP , but he said its safe to say around 375 HP . Although I’ve never tried he states Its scary fast especially between 3rd & 4th gear . Thanks for your interest .

California under the SB100 code insues the serial # .. Shell Valley might have a # somewhere on the frame or car ? The VIN # on the site is the VIN # on the title . Hope this helps

My California title date is 2020 The registration states year 2000 1st sold But the car is actually registered as a 1966 Ford . So for all purposes it’s a 1966 I would guess ?

Hi thanks for your answer. Do you think that they can give me the date of built ? I need it for the evaluation of the tax to import the car in Europe. What is the date on your title ?
