Re-skinning a Snake, outside and in

The Cobra is one of the true icons of performance cars, and this sweet Backdraft version is powered by a Roush Performance 427 Windsor small block. It was purchased with typical Cobra flash, but the owner likes to personalize his rides, so the Cobra came to V8 Speed and Resto for several rounds of appearance upgrades. First order of business was to black-out all the bright trim, including powdercoating the windshield frame, wheels, and other trim items. It was then treated to a complete repaint in our Paint Shop.

From Blacked-Out to Bespoke Beauty

This Cobra’s transformation wasn’t complete after the paint job. V8 Speed & Resto’s Upholstery Shop added the perfect contrast with a custom, hand-stitched tan leather interior. The distressed finish echoes the texture of snake scales, and the rich leather aroma welcomes you… until you turn the key and wake up the 427’s growling side pipes.   Slide behind the wheel and experience luxury that matches the car’s power.
