Shelby Cobra 427 50th Anniversary

While anniversary editions of any iconic vehicles [whose parent company is still in existence] are expected, we’re still a little dumbfounded at how accurately Shelby’s Cobra 427 50th Anniversary embodies the original (though this is not without catch – read on). The “new” 427 comes with a muscular fiberglass or polished aluminum body, gold 50th anniversary badges, and a large empty space under the hood for the engine and transmission of your choosing, since technically this is a kit car. Limited to 50 units, so if you want one you’d better get your checkbook ready by January 13th.
