Description for Shelby Cobra 1965


Now availableis this incredible Shelby Cobra replica. This car was a true "no expenses spared" professional build. This is my second Factory Five Racing Shelby Cobra and the difference from a home build to a pro build is night and day. I also have been around many of these cars over the years and there are a lot of knock off, low quality Cobras around. Avoid the temptation of a $25k Cobra... you'll be disappointed. Factory Five Racing makes a very well engineered car with great parts availability and support. This car is tight, needs nothing, and is an absolute rocket ship with approximately 500hp and a weight of 2200lbs. The rear tires will break loose in 3rd gear at 3/4 throttle. Dyno sheets show 420 rear wheel horsepower. A file 2" thick full of receipts is included with the purchase.

Mechanically, this Cobra is perfect. The supercharged engine fires right up and idles smoothly. It is fuel injected and tuned perfectly. Some highlights of the build include RHS Pro Topline heads, Comp cam, Comp Pro-Magnum roller rockers, ARP head studs, FMS hydraulic lifters, Paxton Novi supercharger, 90mm throttle body, SCT 6600 chip, Tremec TKO600 with heavy duty built internals, VPM Carrera coil-over suspension, and a complete HSW Sudden Impact LSX wet nitrous system that has been installed, but never fully connected to the intake and therefore never used.

You can drive this car casually around town so long as you are very light on the throttle. But once you lay on the gas, this beast comes to life instantly. It hooks up very well and and I'd estimate a 0-60 in about 3 seconds. It runs cool all day and never overheats. It is perfectly happy on 93 octane pump gas. The transmission is a built Tremec TKO600 5 speed manual that shifts perfectly. Everything is in proper working order. I have taken this car on several long drives and it has performed flawlessly.

Cosmetically, this Cobra is in excellent condition. The silver paint is original from when the car was completed in 2008 and it looks great. There are just a few little rock chips that have been touched up. The alloy wheels are perfect. All the chrome is bright and shiny. The interior is perfect. All the AutoLite gauges work properly. The seats are brand as of new last year as the car previously had aluminum-backed racing seats that were painful to sit in. A weather-proof tonneau is also new and included with the car.

Here is your chance to own an incredible car. Driving this Cobra is a very engaging experience and brings a smile to everyone's face who encounters it. It has a fantastic rumble around town and screams like a NASCAR as you push down on the gas pedal. The open air experience only adds to the excitement and makes this car seem even faster. Whether it really is faster than the 700hp supercharged Viper GTS or SL65 AMG that I have had recently, it certainly feels like it is!! I love this car and pursued it from the previous owner for over a year. The only reason for selling is I simply don't have enough time to drive it and can't justify such a fun machine sitting in the garage any longer.

The Buy-It-Now is a very reasonable $39,990. Call or Text Joe @ 518-577-5659anytime with questions.

JSN Automotive is a New York State licensed and bonded dealer (DMV# 7119449). I have sold thousands of vehicles when I had a big dealership. I have since scaled way back and now only cherry pick extra clean vehicles that I am excited to drive and sell. My dealership is located right at my home, which means two important facts for potential buyers. The first is that I have virtually no overhead so I don't have to mark up the prices like other dealers. Secondly, because I am operating out of my home, I always want my customers to be 100% satisfied with the vehicle they are buying.

By engaging in this auction, you agree to the following paymentprocedure, which provides buyer and sellerwith the best transaction possible:

- A Bill of Sale and copy of title will be emailed to the buyer so they have proof of contract to purchase and can then secure funds if needed.

- A $1000 deposit is due within 2 days of end of auction. Full payment is due in the form of wire transfer or certified check within 5 days of end of auction.

- Once full payment has been received, the title will be express mailed to the buyer. The buyer can then register the vehicle or obtain temporary plates.

I am located just 15 minutes from the Buffalo Niagara Airport and Depew Amtrak Station. I can also assist with organizing transportation. Every customer has been satisfied with the vehicle they purchased. I go to great lengths to accurately describe thevehicle in text and photos. Please remember, these are pre-owned vehicles and therefore will likely have minor imperfections. They are not new and in most cases do not carry an existing warranty. If you have an issue with a vehicle, I will always be fair and honest and work to resolve the issue with the new owner.
