Who is Period Correct?

Paul Proefrock

My passion began many years ago – a college kid in Southern Illinois, seeing a Cobra in a Ford dealership – and it became focused years later when I started my Hurricane big block replica build. Wanting to pursue as accurate a reproduction as possible, I found that many of the components were no longer available – or so pricey no one could afford them.

A lifelong gear-head, I combined my skills and training in art, engineering and marketing to research and develop the items I needed for my build. Many asked if I would supply pieces to them, thereby starting “Period Correct, LLC”, a company to supply affordable period correct components for the replica Cobra market – Shelby Cobra replica parts and accessories.

Some of my passion is now being devoted to this site and providing builders with documentation of the cobras and specific ones. More will follow in the very near future.

Our products can be found on many replicas around the country, and to my pleasure, on a number of notable original CSX cars.
Oh, and my Hurricane builds? Build I has found a new home in Louisville, KY and Build II is out on the road, looking for the next adventure.

They’re never done. And I’m enjoying every minute.

This is my second build, utilizing the things on learned on my first, even more detail to ‘period correct’

Things haven’t changed: the hardest part of building these is picking a color combination. This choice of Saleen ‘Lizstick Red’ is very eye-catching.
