We have this rediculous Steve Arntz AC Cobra replica in stock and on the floor... This is one of 65 Cobra replica's built by Steve Arntz, former employee involved with the original Shelby Cobra and one of the first people to go out and replicar the car... From the information i've been provided thhis one was built in the late-70s and this American made Cobra reproduction is as rare as it is stunning. Arntz was a pioneer in the concept of reproducing Shelby Cobras and this Vehicle is testament to the quality of his workmanship. These cars are not the same as the kit cars that are being sold today. There were very few of these cars built and even fewer on the road today... most were built with a 350 Chev and some with Windsor small blocks, this is one of a few 427 cars with a toploader and about as close to real one as you could hope for without being in the Million dollar bracket.

So as mentioned Arntz offered a couple of engine options, this car has the motor everyone wants and can't be built into a new replica anymore, she has a genuine 427ci FE side oiler! The Block features screw in freeze plugs and the extra cross-bolts for main bearings that are unique to the side oiler type blocks. Functioning side exhausts sound astonishing.
The gearbox is a Ford Toploader which will be either a 28 or 32 spline version commonly used for being Ford FE engines & features a period correct gear selector. The diff is Jaguar as is the independent rear suspension with inboard disc rotors and 4 x shocks are present front and back, they feature adjustable ride height and adjustable compression dampening. Front suspension is a custom fabrication steel tube A arms.

Chassis & Body:
This Cobra reproduction has the distinctive features of the Arntz square tube chassis design that is very substantial. It has the unique feature of a drop-down foot wells that set this car apart. The addition of the flared guards and twin round tube over-rider mounts improves the appeal of the body. The design is very elegant & menacing at the same time.

Outside Accessories:
The look of this Cobra is set off beautifully with the Halibrand branded Cobra 6 pin knock off wheels in the original Cobra sizes 15 x 7.5 front, 15 x 9.5 rear. The windscreen is quality made English item Featuring chrome over brass construction. The roll bar has substantial 3 point chassis mounting, so would be considered a structural roll bar not the more common decorative roll bar found on many replicas.

The gauges are correct Smiths brand and the vintage wooden steering wheel and pedals are AC marked. The seats are period correct leather trimmed buckets. The interior Is in excellent condition.

Please note: If you are not familiar with Steve ARNTZ or Ron Butler Cobra replicas please do your homework. They are incredibly well engineered and well constructed cars built in the true spirit of the original 427 Cobra. Very limited production due to the high build cost at the time. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own and enjoy one of the best quality and most authentic looking Big Block Cobra Replicas ever built at a fraction of the price of an original.

A Cobra of this vintage, condition and mechanical specification does not come into the market very often. Here is your opportunity to own an American built piece of automotive history!

Located at SEVEN82MOTORS Classics, Lowriders & Muscle cars, specializing in Australian & American car sales and available to view in the showroom at 132 Spencer Road, Nerang on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
