1965 Shelby American 427SC "Continuation" Cobra

The Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the Ford Mustang, built by Ford from 1968 through 1970. The 1965, 1966 and 1967 Shelbys were a series of Ford Mustangs which were specially modified by Carroll Shelby's company and sold under the name Shelby GT.

Bill Stephens is the man behind Ultimate Garage Productions, Inc. and has been involved on just about every level of automotive and motor-sports television since 1989. Bill is the owner of the car pictured here.

This car is the one Bill has wanted since he was 12 years old.
It is one of the new generation Shelby Cobras being manufactured by the legendary car builder in his Las Vegas factory. It has a 575- horsepower, 427 C.I. Ford Side-Oiler V8, Weber carburetors, and has been autographed by Carroll Shelby himself.

Lucky Bill!

  4. @KT Did, I have always wanted a vet with the coves in the sides. I don't know anyone who wouldn't agree with you, vets are most definitely fun!

    @Dean- Yup, I agree. Totally!

    @Webster- Wow! You do like this car! I don't know, I think I'd take the 20 :-)
    And thank you for the compliment to my blog!

    @Baron- I was always drawn to cars, I can remember looking at nice rides since I was a very little girl. When I was a teen, we were able to get a daylight drivers license at age 14, I wanted my big brother's 1971 Mustang Mach II, of course there was no way I was getting one at that age, but he did let me drive it a couple times and taught me how to leave tracks! That was it for me, fast cars were in mt blood for good.

  5. That is about as good as it gets I think. It's too bad you basically have to be a millionaire to own one though.

    Knowing your love for classics and cars that maybe fall a little "outside the box," I recently found something that may interest you. Check this out: http://www.mjq.net/fiveo/50mercury.htm

    This is strictly for those who don't believe a sedan can be sexy. I was a big fan of the show, and this classic Merc. You can also own one without being Donald Trump.
