For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

With a well-done color combo, proper V8 power, four-wheel disc brakes, and all the right race-ready details, this 1965 Shelby Cobra by LA Exotics delivers the right kind of vintage sports car package that's ready to enjoy today.

This gets the Cobra attitude right. Wide fenders, wide tires, push-style racing bumpers, a big hood scoop, and an even bigger full roll hoop. It's all done in a sleek and speedy red, but that might not be the first thing you notice. That's because this has a well-done black package showing off some of the sportiest pieces, like the side pipes, the large front end that looks like it wants to inhale the car ahead, and the Halibrand-style wheels with real knock-off center hubs. Even the details are done in black, like the bumper arms and fender vents. It makes for quite a stylish total presentation.

This is a true roadster that's open to the world, and so you have a good-looking black and red style that goes with the exterior. There are nice little details, like side wind wings, sun visors, door packets, and a replica Carroll Shelby signature on the dash. But what you'll like best are the driver-oriented features. You have low-back bucket seats covered in supple leather, and you're sitting securely with Simpson full racing harnesses. The wood-rimmed steering wheel, durable Faria gauges, and a shot-stalk shifter make for a race-ready experience.

The engine bay has the right Shelby style with the long Cobra air grabber and matching ribbed valve covers. Underneath it is Ford's mighty 351 cubic-inch V8. These love upgrades, and so you have a large Holley 950 CFM four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding into those rumbling side pipes. There are even the right supporting components, like dual electric fans and an MSD ignition. This is a powerful package and so you need a stout set up to handle it all. That's why you have a close-ratio toploader four-speed manual transmission feeding into a Ford 9-inch rear. There's a strong boxed steel chassis and hardy Ford suspension components. Plus, you have the superior stopping power of four-wheel disc brakes.

This is the powerful Cobra you want when it's time to attack the tarmac. It even comes with some nice extras, like a rain bonnet and race-style clinging decals. So don't miss out, call today!!!
