AutoHunter Spotlight: 1966 Shelby Cobra replica

Black Cherry Red roadster powered by a 1995 Corvette engine


Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online classic and collector car auction site driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1966 Shelby Cobra replica built using an Everett-Morrison kit and powered by a Chevrolet LT1 engine.

According to AutoHunter, the build was started in 2004 by the seller’s brother-in-law and completed in 2012. Between 2012 and 2020, the Cobra was driven around on weekends and then passed on to the seller’s sister, who added only 177 miles.

For a walk-around tour of this Cobra, check out the video below:

The body is finished in Black Cherry Red paint with two white stripes stretching over the top and features classic Cobra styling cues including a hood scoop, twin roll hoops and Cobra emblems.

In the cockpit, the car houses black leather-upholstered bucket seats, a 3-spoke steering wheel with leather trim, and a shifter mounted on a carpeted center console.

The engine, a Tuned Port Injection 5.7-liter LT1 V8, came from a 1995 Chevrolet Corvette. The seller notes the engine had 19,000 miles on it when it was installed. It’s linked with a Richmond 6-speed manual transmission.

The odometer shows 5,451 miles on this build.

This Cobra Replica’s auction ends September 8 at 12:20 p.m. PDT.
