Description for Shelby Cobra 1965

A 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five car this freshly built with such a powerful 450hp V8 should not be this affordable. So read all the details carefully, but don't take too long, because you already know how hot this red roadster is.
We all love a good Cobra. This roadster has bulging fenders that look like they are trying to keep the beast within contained. In fact, since these were out to eat Corvettes back in the day, we find it quite cool that this one borrowed both the red body color and white racing stripe color from the Corvette palette (like a wolf using wool to blend in with the sheep.) And with only 450 miles on the whole build, you know the paint looks even better in person. Plus, the expert Factory Five body is still looking as crisp as ever. This is a 60s-style street/track machine, so there is an obligatory touch of chrome. Some pieces are expected like the bumpers and dual roll hoop. But there are also places that were upgraded to stand out like the side exhaust pipes and the trim rings on the 15-inch Halibrand-style wheels.
Factory Five also knows how to get the interior right. The low-back bucket seats are nicely padded and finished in leather. You have the full Simpson racing harnesses. And there are Factory Five logos on everything from the floor mats to the wood and chrome three-spoke sports steering wheel. They even know to correctly use a reverse speedometer. It's all because Factory Five knows how to deliver top-quality Cobras.
Under the hood is a freshly built 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8. This Ford legend looks great with the Cobra valve covers and matching long air topper. But even more importantly, it has been fortified and enhanced with all the right components. This includes, Speed Pro 030 Pistons, Speed Pro 030 Moly Rings, Isky Racing hydraulic roller camshaft, hydraulic roller lifters, roller rockers, pro comp aluminum heads, and MSD Atomic fuel injection. The powerplant has been blueprinted and balanced, and the total package is estimated at 450 horsepower. This kind of superior performance is announced the moment you fire-up this Cobra up and let the headers feed the growling side pipes. Plus, you have complete control over this enhanced V8 and its monster soundtrack thanks to the Tremec 600 five-speed manual transmission. Keeping you connected to the road and on the best racing line is the fully-independent race-inspired suspension with adjustable coilovers, BF Goodrich gForce T/As, and Wilwood disc brakes at every wheel.
Fresh, stunning, and absolutely powerful you know what it would cost to get a Cobra like this, but if you hurry, you can skip ahead while saving a ton. Call today!!!
