Description

BORED 427 V8, 5SPD TRAN, 4 WHL DISC, JAG REAR, SMITH GAUGES, LEATHER SEAT, FAST!

The right colors, a monster big block, and a fully independent suspension – this 1965 Shelby Cobra Contemporary has all the features you want at a price far below what you'd expect to pay.

This is the iconic color combo for Cobra, and while some replicas have a deeper shade of blue, we bet you like how this lighter color looks against the white stripes. After all, it's this the exact kind of car we always see Carroll Shelby driving in the old promo films, right? In fact, speaking of the classic look, the brightwork nails the vintage appearance, too. The front bumper that surrounds the grille, single roll hoop, and curved rear bumper are all equal parts graceful and functional. Finish it off with knock-off style wheels, and you a have a true competition machine that absolutely looks the part.

Black leather racing buckets and competition harnesses are exactly what you love to see in a Cobra. And when you sit down, you get the full experience. Your left hand will love the correct wood and chrome three-spoke steering wheel with Cobra center cap. And your right one may never want to leave that large cue ball shifter. Plus, true Cobra fans know a dash full of Smiths gauges is the proper way to celebrate this icon.

Under the hood, the big block has a dominating presence with those long Moroso valve covers shining like a grinning beast. And the mean appearance is no accident. The late '60s block for this 427 cubic-inch V8 was advertised at 385 horsepower, and that was BEFORE this one was bored out to 440ci total. It inhales deeply from a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with thunderous authority as the headers feed those large side pipes. A total power package like this requires the best control. That's why you have a five-speed manual transmission. There's also a fully independent suspension that features a strong Jaguar rear end with inboard brakes for better weight distribution. And speaking of the brakes, you also have a superior four-wheel disc setup. Add in the grip of modern BF Goodrich tires, and you soon realize this is a fast machine that also knows how to also handle the corners.

Seriously powerful, classically finished, and priced right – this is a terrific Cobra package that's going to get snatched up soon. Don't miss out, call today!
