Snake Bite was started in 1997 after the hobby build of my first cobra replica. At that time, the Cobra Replica industry in Australia was just beginning and the range of parts I sought to build an authentic style cobra was either non existent or not of the quality I was seeking.
With my engine rebuilding and fitter and turner background, I found myself manufacturing most of the bright work to suit my needs. From here, my love, enjoyment and passion for cobras gave me a desire to produce a range of high quality parts & accessories to enhance the cobra industry.
I sold my Engine Reconditioning business and started from scratch, working from our home garage, and after 3 years moved into a factory, expanded our line and now ship our parts all over Australia.
Our Business Today
We are pleased to provide Cobra parts, accessories and advice, to both manufacturers, builders & owners of Cobras. We recently expanded our sales & information channels to include the Internet via our Online Store. We are glad to see a strong growth in enthusiasts building & owning Cobra replicas in Australia. The strong growth is not just restricted to Cobra's, but also other Shelby related replicas, such as GT40(Ford GT) & Daytona Coupe.
We are looking forward to assisting you with your parts & accessories requirements.
