1965 Arntz Roadster – Shelby Cobra Recreation finished in Blue with white race stripe over Burgundy leather interior. One of the very first recreation cars ever produced, Steve Arntz launched the American recreation craze with this remarkable recreation. The car’s craftsmanship is of the highest caliber as was constructed with only the finest fiberglass material. Powered by the 427/500hp Chevrolet V8 motor with 4 side draft Weber carbs, this car also features; DNE Street 5-speed manual transmission, independent Jaguar rear end/suspension, custom Moon intake and valve covers, front suspension designed and built by Guldstand Engineering, polished roll bar, lap belt harnesses, dual side exit exhaust system, Nardi wood grain steering wheel, built in battery tender, rear battery jump spots under rear bumper, Hurst shifter, and “knock off” lookalike wheels with BF Goodrich tires. Also note that the frame of this car was designed to be more than twice as strong as the original Cobra’s. This is a very fast, lightweight car that has all the looks and personality as the original! Included are copies of original documentation such as advertisements, spec sheets, and publications.
