Oh we love our fast cars here in LA. This near pristine Cobra 427 was spotted at Kaiser Pasadena during the lunch hour today. Nice to see the old car being used, and on the streets no less instead of restricted to the odd track event or horrors…trailered to car shows.
The Cobra 427 was Carrol Shelby’s effort to get an A/C Cobra homologated for racing and have something that could beat the Corvette of the era. (Homologation is the process of producing enough cars for road use so they can be used as a “stock” road car for track use). Though he missed getting homologation completed in time for the 1965 racing season, it was eventually was and became a terror of the race tracks even into the 1970’s by private racing teams.
