You may well remember a news piece we ran a while ago about some Shelby Series 1 chassis being offered for sale. Well it looks like FII Roadsters came up with a plan with what to do with them and are now offering 50 Limited Edition FII 427 Roadsters based on said chassis.
Here is what they have to say about their F11 427 Roadster
"FII Roadsters acquired the last of the all-aluminum Shelby Series 1 frames and incorporated race proven components and systems to bring you this amazing supercar.
Using this platform, our aerospace team of engineers, designers, machinist and technicians have re-engineered it to accommodate a front mounted 427 Ford FE married to a RBT ZF type 5 speed transaxle. Keeping us at a 50/50 front to rear balance providing unsurpassed performance.
This powerful roadster can go head-to-head with the best.
FII Roadsters came up with a solution to those spare Shelby Series 1 chassis
FII 427 Roadster can accomodate the larger driver in comfort. Power from Ford 427 FE engine (of course)
Our custom roadster’s body and hand-crafted coach work bring back the ‘60s look with 2010 technology – including power steering and A/C.
For the open air enthusiast who does not fit in the classic or late model sports car, the FII 427 Roadster is the solution! It’s designed to comfortably accommodate a 6 foot 9 inch, 270 lb driver with the most cockpit room of any sports car on the market.
This 2400 lb car with a stock 427 can easily break the 4 sec. 0 to 60 mark and will top out at over 180…with the A/C on."
