fuel funnel too small for a 65 body and not located on rear arch, using a mini monza fuel cap, rear lights salah, and 2 point wide roll bar is typically only seen on cobra kits. notwithstanding btw didn't say it wasn't a real cobra - not a real 'shelby'. big diff.

If it's a kit, it's not a Cobra. The name is owned by AC Cars. That's why all the kits have names like Hawk 289, Pilgrim Sumo, etc. They are not allowed to use Cobra on their kits.

Shelby is a manufacturer. The Americans like to call it Shelby Cobra in honour of its creator Carroll Shelby, whereas the British call it the AC Cobra, as it was originally based on the AC Ace, and the '60s cars were actually built by AC Cars at their factory in Thames Ditton.

Although most Cobras built were LHD and exported to the States, Cobras were built in RHD too.

Still in box. Real collectible, from Shelby Collectibles, very detailed, down to the fabric seat belts and metal belt clips! Zero mileage on the odometer....hahahaha! ;)

Sorry couldn't resist...who wants? Box got some words from Carroll Shelby himself + his autograph. Superb reproduction in 1:18 scale :P

Sorry, I lied...there is about 12 inches on the odometer (I pushed it to make sure all 4 wheels turned...)

The 2nd red car is a Karmann Ghia right, very badly tarted up and if in original condition, a very sweet car
