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.
