Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's
Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful
1965 Shelby Cobra Superformance.
Superformance is one of the preeminent names in 65 Cobras and
having spent some time around this car I understand why. The
quality here is simply amazing. We were recently offered the
opportunity to purchase this car along with our beautiful BJ8
Healey from the same longtime owner/collector. We are very pleased
to be ithe current caretakers of both.
One family ownership from new. 7 thousand original miles. Never
hurt and lovingly cared for. Nothing but the best components in the
build. If you are looking for that crappy one your neighbor has
with the wavy sides, vinyl interior and cheap chrome wheels with a
302 and an automatic in it keep looking this is not your car.
Sorry, sometimes I just can't stop myself with my big mouth. This
thing is AWESOME.
Ok, Ok lets talk the build- Lets start in 2005 with a Superformance
Mark3 S/C body, then lets add the following- A Roush 427R
Performance Engine that makes 544 horsepower and generates 517 ft
pounds of torque. Yep, we know the plaque and the literature say
550/535 and that's all fine and good- we have the Dyno Sheets. Case
Closed. Now, I know what you're thinking, if some mutt assembles
the car what good is the horsepower? Well, quiet your fears.
Olthoff Racing is one of the most respected Superformance builders
in the country and that's where this beauty was built. Look them
up, they are in North Carolina where men are men and they know how
to build race cars.
Sorry in advance but this paragraph is a build download of
equipment- Tremec TKO 600 - 64 Overdrive transmission, roadster
bumpers, ceramic exhaust in silver, shoulder harnesses with
anti-submarine belts, chrome fire extinguisher, stone guard tape,
cutoff switch, mats, car cover, radiator and oil cooler guard,
aluminum bellhousing, full width roll bar in chrome, accusump
oiling system, short shifter with Olthoff aluminum ball, MSD
Ignition, braided line kit, custom air cleaner, NOTHING BUT THE
The car is stunning in condition. You can easily see its been loved
its entire life. We removed the stone guard on the nose only
because it had yellowed. The paint underneath is perfect.
Ok if I haven't piqued your interest yet let's talk test drive. Key
on, check. Starter engaged, check. Big ass smile from the big ass
rumble- check. Snick it into first and away you go allowing the
brute to warm just a bit. As a get acquainted drive let wait till
we hit second and then give her a little goose- instant power,
instant tire spin, instant tail moving sideways. Yowsa what an
experience. If you haven't tried it be careful two things are gonna
happen- you are not going to stop smiling and if you get too
carried away you may need to change your drawers. It's an
Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized
possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.
We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel
expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially
misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel
expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold
our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet.... We pride
ourselves on having good cars and representing them properly.
