It was a beast, but never raced accept at the drags. I like the 66 GT350, it was used in the TransAm series races, a real race car..

No my friend has perfectly restored 1964 Shelby Cobra Jet which was # 2 made and 1 or 2 in Resistance. He got a 97% on ESPN on restoration which took 10 years and is in my friends garage he built for it which is temp controlled as well as timer started every day. He would not take 1,000,000 at auction last month as he wanted 1.5. He drives from show to show. With 427 Cobra Jet in l;ittle car it is, well too fast for its self but is not driven like that. Carroll Shelby said top end is 173 and 0-60 in 2.7 by the way years ago offered 750,000 for car back when there was 3. All #'s match and is probably most valuable American car ever as 35 were made and Shelby had 4 or used to. Hp was 392 and torque was 615. Going over fairly small bridge it will jump over it and do wheelies as all Talledega with 427 in 1967 was built with no interier except absoluitely needed. No air or radio or paower doors ect. just pure speed. It was 1 of 8 known and was wrecked by friend in 1982. He sold engine for 13,000 as no way to find body parts as regular talladegs did not have same.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, buddy I would not turn my back on it,though. those Yenco Camarrows were real nice too. As for me, a mopar fan, My 70 challenger with a 413 max wedge and two carter 600afbs on a cross ram would definatly give it a run for the money. I had a 429 in my brady bunch station wagon. (70 ford Ltd) When I towed the dodge to the track with it, that old ford would run 14's the challenger ran mid 9's and yes I miss them both. There is an a feeling that you can only get from an american asphalt peeling, heart thumping Big Block, and yes I have driven them too. (p.s. Dad ran a 400 ford with a BDS blower on his 40 ford pickup, and we used to race cops in excebition matches. it ran in the upper 8's

I love that car so much, if you seen "Gone in 60 seconds", you can see its a really beastly car. So it's a possibility if your into muscle type of cars.

Dream on!

Everybody has their own dream car, so there are lots of "best car ever" in the world.

Personally I'd love a Bentley Coupe - a real Gentleman's Sporting Carriage!
