*This is a Factory Five Racing Mark I Roadster (FFR2513) which is a replica of the famous 1965 Shelby 427 SC Cobra. It is properly registered in California as a 2002 SPCN (Special Construction) under the SB100 program - it never needs a smog test.


This Cobra has just over 6,000 miles and I never had any mechanical problems. I would consider it to be in excellent mechanical condition no leaks or other problems.

Paint and body - this car has never been in an accident or had any 'touch up' work done to it. Overall, the paint is in excellent condition although there are some minor paint nicks in the nose and on the leading edge of the rear fenders. (I also have a quart of the original paint!)

Just completed theannual maintenance which included; New Optima Red Top Battery, New Plugs, New Plug Wires, New Air Cleaner Element and bled the brakes. While I had the plugs out (which looked good) I took the opportunity to check the compression: #1-153, #2-158, #3-163, #4-163, #5-158, #6-160, #7-163, #8-163. (all 8 cylinders are within 7% of each other)
