"Only 31 of these cars were ever produced; a street spec Cobra with competition equipment."
The FIA Speed World Challenge, a world endurance championship in which the Shelby Cobra competed, differed from the GT Class in that an engine displacement limitation was not established.
In order to defeat their rival Ferrari in this series, Shelby American decided to mount a large displacement engine in their entry. At the time, Ford conveniently had their 7 L, 427 'Side Oiler', a pure racing engine for stock car racing. It was decided that the Cobra would be fitted with this engine, and the development of the Shelby Cobra 427 started near the end of 1964. Its prototype was completed in the spring of 1965.
The major problem that immediately arose was that in comparison to the 345 BHP produced by the 289 unit, the 427 Side Oiler produced roughly 493 BHP. Phil Remington, who was in charge of design at Shelby American, determined that the existing suspension would not be able to handle this much power. Therefore the characteristic side-mounted leaf suspension was abandoned and changed to a conventional double wishbone with coil dampers.
The Shelby Cobra 427 cleared its 100-unit minimum production and acquired the FIA homologation, and the car ventured into competition in the SCCA A production class from the opening of the 1966 season. In the end, 348 Shelby Cobra 427s were built, with 88 of these being competition spec models or test cars.
Incidentally, the 427SC is a road model with competition spec equipment, and there were only 31 of these cars that were built to this spec from the beginning.
