Professionally finished and painted this 1965 Cobra features code 40 Mercedes Benz Schwarz Black paint and a code 70 GM Torche Red stripe. The Mark III body is very typical of the excellent work coming from Factory Five Racing these days and features a higher quality gel coat resulting in a smooth and flawless surface. Better panel trimming and design enhancements for better sealing allows the doors hood and trunk to function without issue despite panel gaps that would rival an original aluminum Cobra. Topping off that slick fuselage is dual chrome roll bars and new glass including visors and wind wings that are complemented by satin finish metal mirrors. All new lighting chrome bumperettes stainless fender gills and a polished fuel cap add detail while ceramic coated side pipes with auger style mufflers provide a classic Cobra sound. The nice thing about Factory Five’s Mark III frame is that it allows for wider tires and results in an aggressive stance that an original Cobra can’t match. This car wears meaty Nitro radials size 245/45/17 up front and 315/35/17 in the back that are affixed to graphite gray OE Racing wheels. A rebuilt 302 bored .020 over (that’s 304 cubic inches if you’re keeping score) makes a dyno tested 331hp and 324ft./lb. of torque. The freshly machined block was first equipped with a balanced rotating assembly complete with SRP forged flat top pistons and shot peened connecting rods. Next a Comp Cams XE274HR camshaft and Air Flow Research 185cc aluminum heads with Comp Cams roller rockers were bolted up. Then an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake topped with a Holley Street Avenger carburetor finished things off. An MSD ignition system complete with both an MSD distributor and MSD coil provides the spark while ceramic headers bolted to the ceramic side pipes provide the neighborhood shaking sound. Accessories include: a new oil pump and Canton 7 quart oil pan complete with windage tray a new water pump a new radiator and a powder coated 130
