1965 Kirkham Ford Cobra Roadster Replica
For some, a car like this is the sound of a big block FE engine rumbling through the side pipes and the brutal acceleration that pushes you back when you hit the gas. Others cannot help but stare at the curvaceous fenders and are drawn in by the beautiful craftsmanship of the aluminum body.
A roller chassis will come with a base price of $79,995. Add some options and you can be well over $100,000 without engine, transmission, and interior, not to mention all the small stuff! Lighting, wheels, gauges, fuel components.
This car has a really massive engine, the 427 cubic inch aluminum SOHC Cammer Crate Engine has that brawny wow factor. Certainly to produce the 900 hp as listed there must have been some serious internal work performed. Running very mild camshafts and pump fuel, these performance engines cruise at 760 hp and 622 lb-ft torque without breaking a sweat. You can respectably spend over $40,000 for a mild setup.
This car looks to be almost near completion. The interior needs some work and I am sure there are many hours to complete this car to our standards. So if you are pretty handy with tools and you have a transmission laying around (no gear shifter!) you can probably pick this up for a reasonable price. Just at a glance you can estimate the cost of what has already been done to be at least $140,000.
