1965 Shelby Cobra ReplicaBeautiful black on black Cobra built by Ron Butler Racing. This is one beautiful Cobra, from the exterior to interior tounder the hood this vehicle boasts power and performance. This is a car you have to see in person to understand how amazing itreally is.Firing up the engine really shows you how much power this Cobra has just from the sound alone. It is so much fun to drive and makes you feel like you are in the seat of arace car yet it has all the comforts youwould want.The builder Ron Butler was acrew member of Carroll Shelby in the 60s.Carroll Shelby said of Butler Racing "Rondoesn't do anything thatisn't first-class. He is one of the few old world craftsman left."This is anextremely clean car and has always been taken care of. It was built by the best and is the closest thing to an authentic Cobra off the line. I am asking $79,000 OBO for the car.
