Engine

The 427 FE engine became popular in the 1960s as the first power plant for the Big Block Cobra. Our 427 FE engines start with our Aluminum 427 block. Cast in California, these blocks are stronger and 40% lighter than the original cast iron blocks. We have plenty of configurations for you to choose from, ranging from 500-750 horsepower. These engines are the most popular choice for the Shelby CSX6000-series Cobras.

brochure text

In 1965, Henry Ford II turned to Carroll Shelby to help the blue oval beat Ferrari on the world's biggest stage - the 24 hours of Le Mans. And win they did, Ford and Shelby combined for a 1-2-3 sweep of the 1966 race and the over all "W" for the four straight years (1966-1969).

In honor of that historic win, Shelby American will build a limited run of (20) 50th Anniversary Shelby GT40 MKII cars to honor this historic racing platform.

These continuation cars are built around the original style steel monocoque unibody chassis and fully independent suspension. They're also using unequal length A-arms. Over two-thirds of the parts are interchangeable with the original race car.

The car also stays true to the original GT40 MKII's dimensions (163 inches long and 40 inches high) with the same 2 x 10 gallon fuel tanks. Even the cockpit stays true to the original with Smith style gauges and silver riveted seats. It can be ordered in right or left-handed drive. Also available in 3 different color configurations, including black/silver, blue/white, red/white, and the original 15" Halibrand style pin drive wheels. Other than the introduction of adding the creature comfort of air conditioning, with a big block 427 engine installed, this car looks, sounds and feels like it just stepped out of Parc Ferme.
