Kirkham Cobra trade for KR


Recommended Posts

I am looking for the opportunity to trade my Kirkham Cobra for a KR. Now that we have 3 people in the family my car is never driven. The KR seems to be the best of both worlds, all the KR owners on here seem to all have positive comments plus you get modern luxuries which my wife would really like now. Anyway, if you know of someone that might have an interest please give them my contact information below.


Quick outline of my kirkham

brushed aluminum body with polised stripes

cast 427 sideoiler built by Holman Moody, with a lot of NOS Ford parts

drivetrain, suspension and brakes installed by Holman Moody as well

4spd, jag rear

interior just like original Cobra

1976 miles, completed in 2006

North Carolina title as 1965 Kirkham


Just want to clarify one thing. Not an even trade for a KR but a KR plus cash. I'm asking $92k for mine and i would pay up to $60k for a KR which seems to be what everyone says they are worth.

Tempting yes......because of that all aluminum body !!


I think the bride may resist in part that we can't fit everyone in the Kirkham. I already have a Daytona Coupe i'm trying to finish building. Another "2 seater" may not be a good idea...lol


Beautiful Cobra you have.

They are like apples and butter. That's why i like the KR so much better than any of the other options. You guys say it handles better than a 500 and from what i read the SS is nothing but a tire smoker. Driving a Cobra makes you appreciate pure American brutwe force but also with Kirkhams' modern suspension handling allows you to enjoy the turns as well.

If we lived in an area with better weather we'd probably be interested. I love the KR but my former-British wife loves Cobras. I understand why you want a change, we have a 2 person car in a family of 4, that no one drives. The KR allows the kids to ride along once in a while.

I have a Shelby Continuation Cobra and the KR. Believe me. The two cars are day and night.


I love them both. If I sold one I would find myself pineing away for the other before long.


The only caveat. Kirkhams are still being made and there are more of them. KRs are no longer being made and there are fewer KRs then Kirkhams.


You really gotta want and love a Cobra to buy one. A much more limited market and buyer.
