Is this the real thing?

It doesn't matter whether it's a REAL Cobra or a reproduction...as long as it's a 1:1 scale car, it's real. Or is it??? The answer: REAL!

I haven't seen a plated kit and I think it would be too expensive to have one done well in the aftermarket, so I'll say it's real – either the original all-aluminum Cobra or a replica.

I would say that it's a real one, I saw a1:1 reproduction at last years "Kool April Nites" in Redding, by the way it's coming the 13th thru the 20th of April. The week after is the "Hotorarama" at the fair grounds in Anderson will be the weekend after, & it has a model contest/show.

I believe the original knockoff Halibrands had the stems in by the spokes, so they wouldn't be as visible as newer aftermarket wheels....I voted 'real.'
