For Sale: 1965 Factory Five Cobra in San Pedro, California

$49,950 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

Price Reduced!    It's easy to find a lot of average quality, budget-built Cobra's for sale for less money (most using used Mustang parts), but if you are looking for a show quality build using only 100% NEW parts and a show-stopping engine, look no further! This stunningly beautiful car, featured in both Car Builder magazine and Reincarnation magazine, is a truly unique vehicle. Start with deep, mirror finish jet- black PPG paint with newly applied Ceramic Pro coating, add in a custom interior (winner "Best Interior" Factory Five Cruise-in) featuring 1-off door panels with handcrafted Olive Ash Veneer (extra sheets included), saddle color Connolly leather on the dashboard, shifter boot and seat piping (purchased from Bentley/Rolls Royce of Beverly Hills, extra hide material included) and top it all off with a heart pounding, head-turning, factory-built "Ford Racing" GT-40 Crate engine with fuel injection and a fully polished Kenne-Bell Supercharger! This is not your average car, but one of the best examples of a Factory Five Cobra available at any price. While show quality describes the body, paint, interior etc., this car is meant to be driven. With the reliability and quality of a factory built engine, the car is driven regularly all year long, and my wife and I have taken multiple 3-7 day vacations...after all, isn't that the whole reason to own a Cobra replica? For those of you in California, rest assured that this car comes with the coveted SB100 Smog exemption. Features include:

Ford Factory Racing GT-40 Crate engine (M6007-XE3) with Aluminum intake (approx. 410 HP/ 320 RWHP);
