FUEL INJECTED, 347 STROKER MOTOR, TREMEC 5 SPD, GREAT PAINT/BODY, COILOVERS, A+!
The Shelby Cobra is perhaps the purest expression of automotive performance ever put on the streets. But when you look at the time, money, and effort it takes for a proper build, you'll realize how much you really just want a quality Factory Five replica like this one with a performance-built stroker 347 V8 and an irresistible price.
Factory Five got the formula right – adding welcomed amounts of room without taking away from the classic Cobra proportions. You'll feel the difference the moment you sit behind the wheel, but more on that in a moment. First, just marvel at the company's 20+ years of fiberglass Cobra knowledge. They understand the gentle European curves originally created by AC, and the aggressive fenders and hood that Carroll Shelby needed to harness all that added power. This body has the exceptional fit and finish that comes from a professionally build execution. You can see it how the metallic Royal Blue flows over each precision body panel. And just as important as building it with quality, is making sure you get the details right. The dual white stripes are an iconic touch; the side pipes have the rumble of a true mean machine; and everyone loves the competition-style driver roll hoop. Plus, the quick jack bumpers and flip-up gap cap are great reminders of this car's track ability.
It keeps a traditional appearance inside with the low-back leather bucket seats, racing seatbelts, and forward curved gearshift. A wood-rimmed steering wheel re-creates the Cobra look, and the dash offers a full array of SW gauges. For the driver this feels like a pure performance machine, but just in case your passenger needs a little more refinement, you have the addition of cup holders and a Sony AM/FM/CD stereo.
Under the hood is a Ford legend, but a much more recent and enhanced one than you find in most Cobras. It's a fuel-injected Ford V8, but the iconic 5.0 callout on top the Cobra R intake is a bit of an understatement. This is actually 347 cubic-inch stroker motor that has been further enhanced with BBK headers. It makes a serious rumble out of those nostalgic side pipes, but just as important, the whole package is rated at 438 hp so you have the bite to back up your bark! Best of all, there is less than 17K miles on the whole build. The Tremec five-speed manual is stout enough to handle this full power package while keeping you in complete control. This feeds the Mustang 8.8 limited slip rear end with 3.55 Yukon gears. Keeping you connected to the road and on the best racing line is a track-inspired suspension (adjustable independent front, coilover rear). Plus, you get the control of a front disc brakes and grippy Cooper Zeon 2XS tires mounted to each of the shiny five-spoke Cobra wheels.
A professional-built, fuel-injected Cobra sounds like a lot of fun on the street or the track. This kind of roadster is a dream for a lot of us, so hurry up before one of the most affordable and complete Factory Five builds gets snatched up by someone else. Call now!!
