1965 Cobra Roadster
For the power and style enthusiast, everyone knows that having both
in an original is way out of most people's reach. In particular
those all originals can be finicky and require lots of garaging and
trailering, and little driving, unless you are pulling your
personal wrencher in a motor home with that classic!
As the saying goes there is more than one way to skin a cat, or you
can have your cake and eat it too! The solution lies in this
classic reproduction from Factory Five. And, in this case it's all
wrapped up for you...just get in and drive.
Words like Awesome, Really Cool, Gorgeous, Great Job come to mind
when gazing at this car. Cortez Silver with custom inlayed snake
skin stripes (uhhh its a Cobra ..right?!) and a slightly different
texture silver horizontal stripe cutting across the bow. Custom
dual chrome roll bars are seen along with badging as the original
would have been. Aluminum front and rear quick-jacks, authentic
ceramic coated side pipes, dual side wind wings flanking a Shelby
windshield, and a chrome side and rearview mirror. Also, lest I
forget, authentic style knock-off wheels wrapped in ZR rated tires.
Noted are small spider cracks around the rear bumpers, as well as
minimal stone chips stressing this is a driver car, not a trailer
Black leather bucket seats with Simpson 5-point belts, black
carpeting, black dash with plenty of toggle switches to keep you
busy, and all the gauges one needs to keep the pulse on the car.
Custom billet shifter, AC foot pedals, and a Cobra wood steering
wheel are noted along with the chromed fire extinguisher nestled
under the dash.
Flip the ultra-light hood and behold a stroked Ford Racing 393ci V8
with aluminum heads and intake, MSD ignition system, power
steering, loads of braided stainless with anodized fittings, and
Cobra aluminum valve covers and air cleaner. All 450hp is
transferred to a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission and an
independent rear end. I smell smoking tires!
A powder coated custom tube chassis, custom fabricated aluminum
inners structure, firewall, and trunk floors. All polished
stainless-steel bolts, stainless braided brake lines, all finished
to show quality. Front features power rack and pinion steering,
rear features independent suspension system with 4 link tubular A
arms and adjustable rear coil-overs. 4-wheel disc brakes all around
with frame mounted dual brake booster to put the hooks out!
Overall a beautiful presentation with a color and textures you just
do not see every day. Well-kept, but driven (consigner drove 1-1/2
hrs here to drop the car off). Only 8600 original miles, so plenty
of use left. A real eye catcher, neck snapper, and thrill giver,
all at a reasonable price, with no wrenching.
