This Factory Five MK III was built by a gentleman in the Atlanta, GA area who is an accomplished craftsman and mechanic who also happened to be a proud member of the US Military. This was a true labor of love for him and when he built the car he did so with the inteniton of truly enjoying the heck out of it, not trailering it around to shows. He spent endless hours getting the car prepped for paint doing the details that most never think of like rounding edges and making sure the panel gaps were as perfect as possible. He then had a professional painter lay down an amazing paint job in an Apple Red Kandy pearl color from House of Kolors with Wimbledon white stripes. This color truly glistens and dances in different lights! The build was completed about 10 years ago and it has been driven but still looks amazing with just a few very small rock chips that have been touched up. Gorgeous set of Polished side pipes, a limited edition polished set of Halibrand wheels, and the chrome roll bar really set this Cobra off nicely. While I expect the future owner to drive and enjoy this beauty topless as much as possible, this one also does come with a full soft top with window inserts that still basically look brand new. The oritignal builder sold the car 5 years ago when a guy at a car show approached him after it had won a huge first place trophy for best in class and made him an offer he couldn't refuse. The gentleman who bought it enjoyed it for the next 5 years as he and his wife would drive it any chance they got winning some more trophies but most of all just having a blast. You should get a good sense of the beauty and quality of this Cobra from the pics included. 

The Tan leather interior is a great compliment to the Apple Red Kandy exterior. The gentleman who built it told me he also bought an extra hide so that he could finish off the door panels and dash in the same leather. Interior is in beautiful condition with limited signs of wear and just a few very small stains under the flloor mats from some drink spills. One of the most unique feature on the interior of this Cobra is the ICE COLD Vintage Air conditioning. The builder knew he would be driving this car thought the hot Atlanta Summer months and his wife insisted on having the A/C . I admit I was a little skeptical that A/C in a Cobra would make a difference but now I am a believer. This system works great and when I took it for a test drive on a 90 degree day that A/C was blowing nice and cold and definitely made a noticeable difference. In addition, for those colder Fall/Winter drives he also installed heated seats for driver and passenger. Since they intended on taking some longer trips in the car they also decided musci would be important so a great Kenwood Bluetooth unit is in the dash and a Rockford Fosgate Amp and JBL Sub woofer are neatly installed in the trunk. Sound comes through the speakers and tweeters behind the seats and it really sounds awesome even over the equally sweet tone of the exhaust. He also added a push button start on the dash which can be used or the car can be started as normal with the key. A Battery cut off switch is locate inside the center console door. A small locking glove box stores your registration documents. There are also courtesy lights in the foot areas on both sides. All of the features and gauges are working properly. Simpson racing belts for driver and passenger. The 5-speed shifter looks great! Overall the interior looks fantastic. 

Powering this beast is a ground pounding 347 Stroker V8 that is estimated at 400-425 hp. I have a list of components used on the motor build but will highlifght a few. GT40 Aluminum Heads, Roller Rockers, Balanced Rotating Assembly from Eagle Specialty products, Edelbrock intatke and a FAST EZ Fuel injection set up. The total mileage on the car is a little over 32,000 miles but this motor was put in about 13,000 miles ago so ti s very fresh and truly the perfect motor for this car. The Fuel injection is a great feature and the programmer is hidden away in a locking area between the seats. Power is transferred through a TKO 500 Tremec 5-speed and out to the wheels through the 8.8 Ford Rear end with 3.73 gears. This set up gives you amazing power off the line as well as allowing you to cruise at 75 mph in 5th gear at 1800-2000 RPM. Of course an amazing exhaust tone from the headers breathing through the polished side pipes. Interestingly this car also has Catalytic Conveters on it as his wife felt it was just a little too loud so he added them to tone it down just a little. Steering is also a breeze thanks to the power steering and the 4 wheel disc brake set up stops this car on a dime. 3-link rear supsension keeps this Cobra handling amazing and there is tons of tread life left on the Nitto Tires.  

Make sure you watch the video to hear this Cobra start up and running. 

Asking price is $44,900 and I am confident the next loucky owner is going to be thrilled with this Cobra. Serious buyers can call me at 770-359-8400 to discuss further.
