For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

This is a 2001 Factory Five Mark I Cobra. The owner completed it over a 3-year span and had it finished in 2004, Overall, it is a great quality build. With only 5,500 miles on it she's ready to hit the streets and take you for a ride!

EXTERIOR: The color combination is very slick! It's painted Ford PPG Black with silver Ford Racing stripes. Don't forget to pay attention to the finer details like the red pin striping on the edges that really make the stripes pop! The owner opted for Cobra R Replica wheels - they are in great shape with plenty of life left on the tires. The side pipes for the exhaust are weathered a little bit and could use a refinish.

INTERIOR: Sitting in the cockpit really makes you want to take this thing for a ride. Overall, it is very clean. It has Dynamat under the carpet to reduce any rattles and ground noise. It has the Factory Five pleather racing seats, Autometer gauges, and it even has heater controls for the heat allowing you to take it out during the colder fall mornings. The cobra woodgrain steering wheel was a really nice touch as well.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Under the hood you'll find a 5.0L crate v8 from Ford Racing, combined with Iron mustang GT heads rebuilt, Echo Cam from Ford Racing, Edelbrock dual intake manifold, Holly 600 secondary Carb, K&N cold air filter with a cobra housing, March Performance pulley kit, and it's all mated up to a New T5 manual transmission. Look a little bit lower and you'll find it also has power steering!

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The trunk compartment is finished nicely in a polished and riveted aluminum, the owner added shocks to the trunk lid so it will stay up. There's also quick connects to the battery. Overall a clean and simple design.

UNDERSIDE: Underneath is very clean and like new. The T5 transmission is powering a rebuilt 3.55 geared rear end, it also has Koni coilovers from Factory Five with front disc brakes.

I consider this one exceptional. Very detailed, paint is slick, interior is spotless. No pitting on the wheels. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
