Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is excited to offer this awesome black Factory Five 1965 Shelby Cobra replica. This is a 2007 Factory Five Mark III, but it looks virtually unused (which one would expect for a vehicle with just 287 miles on the build). A massive 429 CID V8 engine, mated to a crisp-shifting Tremec TKO-500 5-speed manual transmission provides the go; and Factory Five's tube-frame chassis, with Koni adjustable coil-overs at all 4 corners and potent front disc brakes, handle keeping things wheels down and glued to the pavement. The 429 has been refreshed "from crank to rocker arms", and it is truly built for the horsepower junkie. A Jeg's high output starter turns things over, and the MSD billet distributor provides reliable ignition. A big 750 CFM Edelbrock 4BBL carb sits atop the Edelbrock Victor Jr. aluminum intake and makes sure that the huge 429 has plenty of fuel at the top end of the RPM spectrum. A QuickTime bell housing provides occupant safety if there was a destructive clutch failure, and the new Ram Clutch kit also has a Ram hydraulic throwout bearing. The 8.8-inch Moser Engineering rear end can handle all the power that the 429 puts out. Fast is a complete understatement. With little to no weight and a potent V8 up front, this thing is a rocket, and this rocket has been very well kept and cared for over its life, having only covered 287 miles since it was built in 2007, so it's probably barely broken in! A big aluminum radiator with an electric fan help keep the mill in proper operating temps. Custom ceramic-coated headers feed into the dual side-pipes and provide for that great throaty sound that the early Cobras were famous for. A full set of Autometer Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges help the driver monitor critical operating functions. The 2-stage high gloss black with gold stripes is a pleasant change from the usual blue/white/gray color combo. Thin orange stripes border the gold stripes, adding an extra bit of pizazz. A set of Hallibrand-style aluminum wheels with machined silver lips and matte centers are shod with some very meaty Goodyear "Sport Car Special" racing tires, 26.5x8x15 up front, and 26.5x10.5x15's out back. Inside, you'll find a spartan black interior, with fresh carpet and black synthetic leather seats that have rarely been sat in, and Simpson racing harnesses to keep you in place while you're out having too much fun. This car gives you the feeling of driving a real Cobra, but without the 6- to 7-figure price tag. When you're behind the wheel of a Cobra, it's just you, the car and the road ahead. A true driver's car. Anyone looking at the pictures and video of this beautiful machine can clearly see why it's a great buy. The design is timeless. Don't wait until it's gone to inquire. Don't miss your chance to get behind the wheel of this one.
