1963 Shelby Slabside

Here’s your chance to own and drive a stunning reproduction of an early 60’s A.C. “Slabside” Cobra, ade on the same assembly line, t the same South African factory, y the same people — as the 50th Anniversary Shelby Slabside Cobras; for about HALF THE PRICE!!!! These slab side Cobras built by Superformance under license from Shelby are nut and bolt exact replicas of the early 60’s Cobras that made Shelby famous, ith the only difference being the fiberglas body. These even have the leaf spring suspension in the front!

The major differences between my car and the 50th Anniversary “Shelby’s” are:

  • My engine is an original early 60’s “date coded” 289 motor rebuilt to new specs with all the best modern hi-performance components (Edelbrock aluminum heads, oller rockers, tc.) by Southern Automotive to put out 360 HP. The Shelby’s have a NEW aluminum block 331CI. My car is more “accurate” to the originals compared to the Shelby anniversary cars in this respect. If you look at the engine photos, ou will see it has lots of billet goodies and is accurate in it’s detail to the original Cobras.

  • 2) My car has the more “correct” top loader FOUR SPEED transmission and a 3.73 Salisbury rear . The Shelby’s have a modern 5-Speed transmission and a 3.52 rear, hich were NEVER in the original cars. Again, y car is more accurate to the originals than the anniversary cars.

    3) My car comes with a dash plaque that says “Superformance Mk II, istributed by Superformance LLC, nder license from Carroll Shelby Licensing, nc. Chassis #SPS0002” The Shelby’s receive a plaque with a CSX 8000 series number and Shelby’s “stamped” signature, hich you get for the modest extra cost of $100,000 or MORE……. (sarcasm intended). I’ve seen some on eBAY and other venues for over $220,000!

    The cost of the rolling chassis on my car with all the options (red leather interior, op, ide curtains, oor pockets, eater, tc.) was $85,750. The cost to buy the engine and transmission and have them installed totaled $25,000; bringing the total to over$110,000.

    The car has only 500+ test miles on it, nd is now “fully sorted” and ready for your driving enjoyment without the 6 month or more wait to order a car from scratch, lus time to complete the drivetrain installation.

    I am selling to make room for another car I want. My loss is your gain. I sell most of my eBay auctions prior to auction end so don’t hesitate to contact me with an offer — if you are serious.
