For Sale: 1965 Shelby Daytona in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

For sale in our Boca Raton, Florida showroom is this rare Factory Five 1965 Shelby Daytona Spyder. It seems these days that the Daytona Coupe is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Shelby, Shell Valley and Superformance all make Daytona replicas, and Factory Five is on the third iteration of its Type 65 Coupe - arguably the most advanced Daytona yet. With all these coupes around, it seems one Daytona has slipped from our collective memory. One of the rarest and surely one of the oddest, the Factory Five Spyder GT is the wrongfully forgotten Daytona Coupe. We won't hold it against you if this is the first Spyder GT you've ever seen; after all, Factory Five built just 39 of these kits back in 2005. Word is that production was cut short to make room for the upcoming GTM at their facility. With the small number of kits sold and completed, it's rare to come across a Spyder GT especially one in this great condition. From a mechanical standpoint, this Spyder has all the makings of a great performer. A stroked 347-ci Ford small block churns out 415 hp, and has been nicely dressed up with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, billet front accessories and ceramic-coated headers. Power is directed by a TREMEC T5 transmission and a Ford 8.8-inch rear end. Factory Five options kits with independent and solid-axle suspensions using the 8.8, and we're willing to bet this car uses the latter. Five-lug hubs and disc brakes are used on all-four corners. This car is ready for the new owner. We offer worldwide shipping and financing. Let it ride!!!
