The Kirkham aluminum bodied Cobra was really nasty, 427 Ford aluminum 496" billet stoker, four 2 barrel throttle bodies, 717 hp in a 2150 lb car. Ran it 1/4 mile once on street tires 10.40 @ 147 mph. Scared hell out of me the first time I drove it. Wish I still had it.
The video below is of a factory car at Mid Ohio. It ran 11 races, was being sorted out the first race and didn’t finish, it won the next 10 setting a course record each race, and won the Super Unlimited Championship. It was 45 less hp than my car. My car can be registered and street driven or track driven.
Here's something from an ad.
