This. Tiny rear end, tiny drum brakes, tiny suspension, sheetmetal chassis.

Had a "real" 427 in the 70's. Now my Cobra is an 88 RX7 powered by a little Buick V6 Turbo.. Having a blast driving the piss out of it. I am to chicken to have a replica. Not much there if ya get hit.. Just my old age "opinion"

By "real" I meant not a kit car but one actually produced by Shelby American in the 60s.

If you put the motor in the right place and do some suspension work you can have a stiff, lightweight and great handling very fast car!

here is mine.

Been around them since 1986. Our motor makes around 650 rwhp. Dual Akly Control set up. Has a built 200R4 with a 9/11 converter. 8.8 Ford rear end that bolts in place. Have to do a "halo" and do the rear end over. 9" Ford ends, new axles $$$$$$$ It is a nice sleeper.
