ABSOLUTELY AWESOME, SUPERFORMANCE 1965 427 S/C COBRA REPLICA IN NEAR FLAWLESS CONDITION....BUILT 351W WITH 385 HP, TREMEC 5-SPEED, 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES,  NICELY UPGRADED WITH JUST 8400 MILES!!!

This gorgeous Indigo Blue Cobra was factory built in South Africa by the Shelby Licensed Company, Superformance. Produced in 1996 this is #67 and was delivered to a Superformance dealer in Ohio where the original owner purchased it in 1998. He owned this car for the next 17 years before selling it to a good friend of his in 2013. The original owner put on just under 7000 miles and the second owner accumulate just under 1500 miles.  This car as extremely well cared for by both owners and received numerous upgrades in addition to normal maintenance. It was driven and enjoyed but never abused.  The car drives like a dream with neck snapping power that will plant a permanent smile on your face and handles like it is on rails.  The car is in near flawless condition with only extremely minor signs of being driven. I recently purchased this Cobra and had it transported to my showroom via an enclosed trailer and was truly impressed with everything about this modern replica of one of the most iconic cars of its time.  I am sure the next lucky buyer will be equally impressed...maybe you?! In addition to being a classic car dealer I am also a licensed transport broker and can get you a great rate on enclosed transport anywhere n the US. I also welcome overseas buyers and can assist in getting the car to the port of your choice. This Cobra is Titled as a 1965 Shelby Replica and I have the original MSO showing the original build date and documenting it as a true Superformance build. 

As I mentioned the paint and body are absolutely gorgeous and in near flawless condition. The Indigo Blue with White stripes is simply iconic and the hand laminated fiberglass body with reinforcing inserts from Superformance is second to none.  Other than some extremely tiny rock chips down low under the headlights and one very small chip on the lower drivers side rear quarter panel that has been touched up, the body is truly near flawless.  The car was always garaged and covered when not being driven and of course was only taken out on this e sunny days for some spirited driving enjoyment.  This Cobra also has a full tonneau cover as you will see in some of the pics. 

Complimenting the gorgeous Blue Exterior is a very authentic, super comfortable Black Leather interior. Dash is adorned with Smiths Gauges that were changed out to white face by the second owner who also added a GPS Speedometer. Leather wrapped Moto Lite Steering wheel and. Superformance floor mats add a nice touch.  The original shifter was changed out to the Jordan shifter which is without a doubt a more comfortable shifter. Chrome fire extinguisher and battery cut off switch positioned between the seats.  Interior looks fantastic and is also near flawless.  

Lets face it, as awesome as these cars are to look at the true enjoyment comes when you get behind the wheel and experience the power and handling these have to offer. This one will not let you down!!! The 351W is pushing out 385 hp and 377 ft. lbs. of torque and will launch you from 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. This motor was built with all quality parts including Edelbrock aluminum heads, polished Edelbrock Performer intake, Competition highlight hydraulic camshaft, Competition billet roller rocker arms, Competition Chrome Moly pushrods, TRW Hypereutectic Pistons, Holley 750cfm Carburetor, Canton high capacity oil pan,,  ARP bolts throughout, and much more.  The second owner had the motor completely checked out and gone through and then added some nice goodies like new MSD 6Al ignition with Billet distributor and wires, new tall Ford Chrome valve covers, Edelbrock polished water pump and fuel pump, and more. Mcleod Billet Flywheel and Blowproof bell housing with block plate. Smooth shifting Tremec 5-speed and Sachs clutch provide awesome power at launch and that 5th gear for highway cruising.  Four wheel disc brakes stop you on a dime and the QA1 shocks and coil over suspension combined with the recently added Cobra Valley front and rear sway bars, and custom Centerline Hot Rod wheels wrapped in close to new BFG Radial TA tires have this Cobra handling like it is on rails.  The driving experience is exhilarating and one any true car guy or gal will thoroughly enjoy. With just over 8400 miles this baby has really just been broken in and is ready to be driven and enjoyed with a turn of the key.  As you will see the engine bay is nicely detailed and ready to show off at the shows. Optima Red top battery located in the fully carpeted trunk.
