Invented in 1962, Carroll Shelby introduced the Shelby Coupe to the performance driving vehicle world. Designed to be a "Corvette beater," the Shelby Cobra was lightweight in design, weighing up to 500 pounds less than a standard Chevrolet Corvette. And Carroll Shelby didn't just make these vehicles small in size -- he made them small in supply too. There are ultimately only 584 Mark II models built in 1964, and between 1962 and 1968, Shelby only built 654 small-block Cobras and 350 big-block versions.

That being said, it can be pretty difficult -- and pricey -- to get your hands on one of these machines this day and age. But luckily, that's where authentic replication comes in.

People have been building their own automobiles since the beginning of time. But back then, people didn't have the knowledge and capabilities of the Internet, nor the resources of auto-body shops that offer upgrade parts and replica car kits. Now, you too can have an authentic replication of your own Shelby Cobra, without having to spend you life's savings on a single vehicle. Cobra kit car manufacturers supply you with the necessary supplies that can help turn any car into the custom roadster of your dreams.

Still looking for reasons to build your own car? Here are some awesome reasons:

Improve an existing car design
If you thought that you couldn't possibly improve Shelby Cobra's original model, Cobra kit car manufacturers have suddenly made this dream entirely possible. Replication allows you to add any modern or personal touches that you desire on your kit car. 

Learn about car engineering
What better way to learn about cars than to build one yourself? Building a car will help you to learn firsthand exactly what it takes to make that engine purr.

Save money
Let's face it, not all of us can afford to drop a couple hundred thousand bucks on a limited edition roadster. Building your own car will allow you to have the car of your dreams on the budget of your dreams.
