An enhanced V8, five-speed stick, and growling side pipes all make
this 1965 Shelby Cobra a proper track-ready replica. But beyond
just your performance desires, this is a quality Factory Five build
with a unique and unbeatable color combo.
This one instantly announces it's a mean machine on first sight.
The vivid red paint is the product of a proper investment in a
modern clearcoat application. That deep gloss loves to highlight
the Cobra's special curvy bodywork. The red was then accented with
a set of black racing stripes so complete that they even extend
below the big air intake up front and the trunk. This is part of a
coordinated dark side package with dual roll hoops, jack bumpers,
side pipes, and 17-inch torque thrust alloys. It's a striking look
that makes this one look fast just standing still.
This is a low-mileage machine, and you're especially reminded of
that with the fresh look of the interior. The low-back bucket
seats, racing belts, and forward curved shifter have a pure 1960s
style, but a freshness that feels like they installed yesterday.
And while a race car is a minimalist presentation, this has the
right details, right down to the leather limiting straps for the
doors. The Factory Five steering wheel feels grippy in your hands,
and the dash is dominated by the same kind of AutoMeter Pro-Comp
Ultra-Lite gauges that NASCAR even uses.
The Cobras were born from Ford's small block program, and so it's
great to have such a well-presented 302 cubic-inch V8 under the
hood. The long Cobra air topper and matching ribbed valve covers
are the centerpiece of tidy setup. This is a performance build with
a brand new Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, aluminum
heads, upgraded intake, and a growling set of side pipes. You have
complete control over the full power package thanks to a Borg
Warned five-speed manual transmission. And you get to take full
advantage of this quality build thanks to a strong tubular steel
chassis, Cobra-style four-wheel disc brakes, modern ZR-rated tires,
and a full performance suspension.
This is the Cobra with a distinctly aggressive look and the right
power to back it all up. Don't miss this sleek Factory Five. Call
