For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Mesa, Arizona


Vehicle Description

With a performance-built small block, programmable fuel-injection, and a fully independent sport suspension means this 1965 Shelby Cobra already has everything you really want even before you find out this sleek machine is a quality Factory Five example.

We all love a good Cobra. This roadster has bulging fenders that look like they are trying to keep the beast within contained. In fact, since these were out to eat Corvettes back in the day, we find it quite cool that this one borrowed both the red body color and white racing stripe color from the Corvette palette (like a wolf using wool to blend in with the sheep.) This sleek paint and the precision Factory Five body come together for a quality overall presentation. This is a 60s-style street/track machine, so there is an obligatory touch of chrome. Some pieces are expected like the bumpers and dual roll hoops. But there are also places that are performance pieces that just really deserve to get noticed, like the side exhaust pipes and the trim rings on the 15-inch Halibrand-style wheels with genuine knock-off hubs.

Factory Five also knows how to get the interior right. The low-back bucket seats are nicely padded and finished in a supple leather. You also have the full Simpson racing harnesses and a sports shifter. And there are Factory Five logos on everything from the floor mats to the wood and chrome three-spoke sports steering wheel. They even know to correctly use a competition-style reverse speedometer. It all make for a quality classic machine. But there are also some nice upgraded details. There's an exterior-matching red and white racing tonneau to go over the cockpit, and the FiTech Go-EFI controller ahead of the shifter is an obvious investment in modern performance.

Under the hood is a performance-built 351 cubic-inch V8. This Ford legend looks great with the Cobra valve covers and matching long air topper. But even more importantly, it has been fortified and enhanced with all the right components. This includes Speed Pro 030 Pistons, Speed Pro 030 Moly Rings, Isky Racing hydraulic roller camshaft, hydraulic roller lifters, roller rockers, pro comp aluminum heads, and MSD Atomic fuel injection. The powerplant has been blueprinted and balanced, and the total package is estimated at 450 horsepower. This kind of superior performance is announced the moment you fire-up this Cobra up and let the headers feed the growling side pipes. Plus, you have complete control over this enhanced V8 and its monster soundtrack thanks to the Tremec 600 five-speed manual transmission. Keeping you connected to the road and on the best racing line is the fully-independent race-inspired suspension with adjustable coilovers. There's also rack & pinion steering, BF Goodrich T/As with extra meaty rear ones, and Wilwood disc brakes at every wheel.

The sale comes with receipts and a full breakdown of all the performance parts that it takes to make a Cobra of this magnetite. This is the awesome fuel-injected Shelby you've always wanted. Call today!!!
