For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

A seriously speedy machine with all the right thoughtful touches and upgrades - that's what you get with this ultra-sleek 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five.

A Cobra is a true racing legend. Sure, the curvy silhouette came from England, but Carroll Shelby was the one who took a lightweight runabout and gave it true aggression with fat fenders and a mean hood scoop. You really get to see that attitude thanks to the tight fit of a quality Factory Five body. The dark blue paint has a high gloss of quality, and that's essential for a terrific Cobra because all those iconic curves really seem to pop when the sunlight evenly rolls over the whole car. It's titled as a 2010 machine, and the mileage on the motor is quite low, and so that's how you get such a fresh-looking car. As a true track-ready roadster, there are the right competition-inspired elements like the dual racing stripes, jack bumpers, roll hoop, and menacing side pipes. And those LED headlights know how to light the way forward better. Plus, those Halibrand-style wheels look extra mean with the seriously meaty rear rubber.

The interior has a great mix of vintage stay and race-ready sensibilities. You get classic low-back bucket seats, and the classic-style racing belts also have shoulder harnesses. The wood and chrome steering wheel is a Cobra favorite. It's set in front of a lightweight aluminum dash that's filled with all the right AutoMeter Pro-Comp readouts, including a large speedo and tach. And the blue and white shift knob is a great racing touch. And for those few times you want more than the rumble of the dual exhaust as your soundtrack, this also has an AM/FM/Cd stereo w/aux input in the trunk.

The low odometer reflects the mileage since the asper crate 302 cubic-inch V8 was installed. In fact, the top end gaskets are even newer with a replacement only about 1k miles ago. That's why the whole package looks so fresh, and we know you love the look of the proper Cobra valve covers. But more than just appearance, this is built with all the right pieces, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD distributor, an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The motor fires up eagerly with a terrific rumble out of those side pipes. Best of all, you're in complete control over the soundtrack and the V8's fury with the five-speed manual transmission. In fact, speaking of control, you also have great features like four-wheel disc brakes, a limited-slip rear end, coilovers, newer bushings, and tubular A-arms front.

Complete with build receipts and service manuals, this is the clean and mean Cobra you've been waiting for. So don't let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
