VERY NICE, 5.0L EFI, 5 SPD, HALIBRAND KNOCKOFFS, HEAT, TOP & CURTAINS, GR8 BUILD
This 1965 Shelby Cobra replica is the best of both worlds. It's a highly desirable Factory Five body that combines the iconic appearance with a modern and enhanced fuel-injected 5.0-liter Ford V8. So when you look at the price, you know this is an unbeatable package even before we give you the details – including Carroll Shelby's signature!
You already know that Factory Five Racing makes some of the best Cobras in the business. So while building one of these from scratch isn't a bad idea, if you're the impatient type or a guy who doesn't feel like investing a small fortune in a custom build, then this car is right up your alley. It's a complete and straight roadster, done right, and finished in a deep blue that looks great on this American racing legend. Laid on top is a set of white stripes that really give this roadster an iconic appearance. Plus, its got all the details you want, like the Halibrand knock-off style wheels, driver roll hoop, and jacking stubs that it was built for combat (and the hardware underneath backs up this assumption.) But even if you don't turn a wheel on the track, it's certain to turn heads on the street.
The interior definitely gets the Shelby attitude right, with wrap-around buckets and Simpson racing seatbelts. But really, the only Shelby detail you need to really feel authentic is Carroll's signature that he penned on the glovebox. The driver gets the full Cobra experience with the three spoke wood steering wheel and the Mustang shift lever that's been reversed to fit the driver perfectly. There's a full gauge package, which is critical if you're using your Cobra on the track. There's no radio or A/C – this is a competition machine that's all about the driving experience, and nothing else needs to get in the way. But this isn't a heartless brute, so it comes with a heat/defrost, folding roof, and side curtains. All it takes is one cold morning where you want to be first to the racetrack, and you'll absolutely appreciate these upgraded features.
Under the hood is a Ford legend, but a much more recent one than you find in most Cobras. The 5.0 fuel-injected V8 fires right up and gives this Cobra a true performance advantage. This motor is already renowned for power, and it has been further enhanced with a Hypertech Chip. The roadster feels confident on the road, which is the true sign of a build that spared no expense. The side pipes sound like a personal symphony for those of us who love to really drive. And thanks to the Zoom clutch and five-speed manual transmission, you are the in full control of this concert. Keeping you connected to the road and on the best racing line is a race-inspired suspension (independent A-arm front, coilover rear.) Plus, you get the control of a front disc brake package with ultra-grippy Hoosier slicks.
You're looking at a true classic with a modern, aggressive attitude. It's easy to love this Cobra, and since it's so easy to take it home, we know this roadster won't be with us very long at this number. Call today!!
