1965 Shelby Cobra Kirkham

1965 Shelby Cobra Kirkham

VIN: AC224539MD

This may be one of the most extraordinary cars we've ever owned. Hand-built and hand-formed, this one-piece aluminum body was created in a Polish MIG factory where metallurgy is their practiced trade. Nearly every piece of aluminum, stainless steel and hardware was made by hand and built to fit this Cobra perfectly, even the control arms and booster housing is handcrafted! This is Kirkham #491 and was built in 2007; at the time, it was one of only seven Kirkham's built with every available option. The Kirkham is powered by a Keith Kraft built, polished, all-aluminum 482ci with a Pink aluminum block. This car was dyno'd at 605hp, so no worries about making it to the car show on time! The cherry on top? It's only logged approximately 1300 miles!
