    Ummm....pretty sure this is a 289 Mk1 slabside replica with a 427 smallblock Windsor stroker in it. Very nice though!

    If it were a 289 replica..it would have leaf suspension..
    There was an very short interim period between the 289 and the 427 where the chassis was updated but not the body..
    I think This is what David Kirkham was aiming at..
    Yes, 351 bored out to 427.

    Must be a wild ride!

    i think they are making 289s with 427 underpinnings now... looks like a 289 slabside body to me....

    looks a bit overkill ;)

    Yep! Kirkham doing Mk I with coil over suspension. A hybrid of sorts...and probably makes for a better handling car...

    yes Kirkham makes the slab side both ways .with original style leaf suspension or with the 427 style suspension. No doubt this is a better handling but the leaf is correct...for the 289 slabside..

    I bought mine from him..Shelby is his name..His father must have had the bug too.
    That 199,000.00 is way over..
    I's say he would take $150,000 + OR -

    These Kirkhams are off the charts.
    Nothing beats the look of the SC though..
