Additional Info

176 built, this is #77. I bought this car in the spring and have done extensive upgrades to it since. For specifics on the Aurora itself go to   https://www.auroracobra.org/   this will give you the history. This will also save a lot of questions if you are not aware of the car.This is a 1983 Aurora Cobra Mark II. Powered by a 445hp 383 stroker with a 700R transmission with Overdrive. Over the past few months there has been wiring upgrades, new fuel pump, new tires (225/60/15 and 215/60/15) and a fortune on the exhaust. I would consider the paint a 8 out of 10 which was done in the early 90's. The car was originally silver grey from the factory. Interior is in very nice condition. I have the leather wheel the car originally came with which I will install it back on the car. I have the original roof, bows and side curtains. The roof itself is usable but is tatty and needs to be replaced using the original as a template. Weighing a little over 2000 lbs with 445 HP makes for a very quick car but I have never tested its potential. It is my 5th Aurora and 13th "Cobra" including an original way, way back when so I have some knowledge about them. I am not interested in fielding questions on why it has a Chevrolet powertrain or automatic transmission etc, it is what it is. If that offends you move on. Like 99% + of "Cobras" out there it is not an authentic Shelby it is an Aurora. It was factory built complete not as a kit, has a proper 17 digit VIN, was sold through select dealers with limited warranty and met all the safety regulations of the day. Still has the 5 mph bumpers and steel beams in the doors. The original Aurora mold Was splashed from CSX 2013. This car starts right up every time and runs in a normal temperature range on the street. -Only one manufactured by Aurora with competition style flares and a cowl induction scoop on the original hood.
