Stunning colors, rare features, and plenty of Ford V8 muscle under
the hood... This 1965 Factory Five Cobra gets the performance icon
idea you love right, and it does it in all the best ways.
You already know Factory Five Racing makes top notch Cobras, and
the color combo here is ideal. A roadster like this is meant to be
enjoyed in the outdoors, especially on sunny days. So there's a
nice metallic element in the blue paint that loves to radiate. And
those white racing stripes are an iconic piece that really pop to
be just as boastful as the blue when they catch the sunlight. The
whole package has less than 6k on the build, so it still has the
unmistakable impression of quality. In fact, there's a nice sense
of overall value in the well-done body panels, clear headlights,
bright dual roll hoops, and Halibrand-style racing wheels.
The interior nails the performance attitude with wrap-around
buckets finished in a durable vinyl and Simpson racing seatbelts.
The driver gets the full Cobra experience with the three-spoke
wood-rimmed wheel, and the Mustang-style shifter is leaning forward
for easier use. There are some rare features you're going to spot.
For example, the dash is filled with a full AutoMeter gauge
package. While many Cobras have the essential speedo and tach
upgraded to be larger and more prevalent, few remember to reverse
the speedometer like Shelby did. Also, when was the last time you
saw a Cobra that offered the ease of power steering?
Under the hood is a Ford legend. The 302 cubic-inch V8 is a
favorite because of its hardy nature. That's why it happily accepts
performance upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor,
Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers feeding those growling side
pipes. It's an overall tidy setup, which tells you it's been
maintained for quality, and they way this V8 fires up readily
reaffirms it. This torque-heavy motor is great for getting off the
line, and the T5 five-speed manual transmission gives you full
control over the powerhouse. Keeping you connected to the road is
the tubular A-arm front suspension, reinforced arms in the rear,
and adjustable coilovers all-around. Plus, you get the control of a
four-wheel power disc brake package and wide BF Goodrich radial
Complete with origin certificate from Factory Five, this is a
strong and sharp Cobra. So hurry before this distinct, quality, and
complete build goes home with someone else. Call today!!!
