Description of 1965 Shelby Cobra Superformance

When it's time for a truly superior track-ready Cobra, you're going to want to check this one out. With a 480+ hp Roush V8, fully independent suspension, rare hardtop, profession speed shop build, and all the other right competition upgrades, you're looking at a slick silver bullet out to win it all. The Superformance MKIII is such an accurate representation of the big engine Cobras that they make sure to license it from Carroll Shelby. While you have... the classic Cobra curves, they are taken to a very modern dimension thanks to the titanium paintwork. The metallic shine this radiates in the sunlight makes you pay attention longer to the wide fender flares and reveals detail usually lost on other Cobras. Plus, this has a dark side with the black racing stripes and jack bumpers. And the details on this one are really going to impress you. There's a color-matched hardtop properly fitted by Olthoff Racing; chip guards applied to the front & rear; a soft top complete with side curtains; and proper Halibrand-style knock-off wheels. The Terlingua Racing Team badge on the back tells you this one was prepared by someone who truly understands Carroll Shelby's racing history. The interior definitely gets the Shelby attitude right with wrap-around leather buckets and classic Smiths gauges with correct reversed speedometer. But more than just the vintage attitude, this was built for modern competition. You get five-point Crow racing harnesses, a strong Olthoff full-width five-point roll bar, Jordan performance shifter, and an upgraded sports steering wheel. It's a total package that gets you instantly ready for speedy business. This car follows the theme of a vintage Cobra lineage with modern performance upgrading - and that's especially true under the hood. So while you have a Ford V8, it's a Roush Performance 402R powerhouse. It includes a TW camshaft, massive Holley 770 CFM four-barrel carburetor, and an Edelbrock performance intake. The full package is rated at 480+ horsepower, and this superiority is announced by the wicked growl of the side pipes. The monster motor is fully under your control thanks to the Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission. Getting all of this to the ground is a stout BTR Dana limited slip rear end. Control is a central them to this Cobra, which is why it includes features like a fully independent suspension, Bilstein shocks, rack & pinion steering, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes with four-piston calipers. This is a professional build by Olthoff Racing, and it has the title documentation and owner's manual that comes with the sale. There's even a dyno sheet to prove the big power. So don't let this turn-key opportunity slip through your fingers. Call now!
