For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Shelby Cobra Superformance has a big power under the hood, a strong five-speed, and a fully-independent sports suspension. But what is likely going to impress you the most is the sleek and shining style you get on this one-owner classic. So while it has the performance to live up to the legend, it also has the style to take center stage.

Superformance knows how to build correct Cobras with track-ready style. That's why this one has race-ready components, like the quick jack bumpers, stainless steel roll hoop, proper side pipes, and Halibrand-style wheels with proper knock-off hubs. But even if the components can dominate the speedway, the overall appearance of this one is more concours than racecourse. The blue paint has a smooth and sleek shine that comes from an investment in quality and taking the time to properly respect it. And everything from the fit of the panels to the polish of the wheels gives this a detailed attraction. This Cobra was built in 2003, has under 40k miles on it, and has been under the care of the same owner the whole time. This kind of history is how you get such a well-presented car. And when someone is going to keep one for themselves, you also get nice personal details. That's why this has the rarely seen side curtains and soft top package as well as a racing tonneau. Plus, the racing stripes are done in a light silver to give you a similar look to the classic white, but with an added radiance in the sunshine.

Just like the exterior, the interior is attractive for being clean, correct, and gives the right updates to vintage details. For example, you have classic low-back bucket seats but now they have better padding and modern RJS racing harnesses. The gearstick is correctly bent forward, you have a wood-rimmed AC sports steering wheel, and there's a full set of Smiths gauges with the reversed speedo in the center. So no matter if you are hammering down a straightaway or just going to the car show, the experience from the driver's seat is truly authentic.

Under the hood is Ford's mighty 460 cubic-inch V8. More than just a big displacement, this is built with the right performance pieces, like Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, an aluminum intake, and a fresh air intake to feed cool air to the Holley four-barrel carburetor. This is also supported by the right pieces, like steel braided lines, dual electric fans, and an MSD distributor. And the header-fed side pipes love to announce this performance build. All this power is at your command thanks to the Tremec TKO five-speed manual transmission. Superformance builds a strong chassis, and on top of that, they added exactly what you want in an all-around performance driver. This includes a fully independent suspension, sway bars front & rear, rack & pinion steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.

Complete with maintenance records, this is the one-owner Cobra build that is the best mix of style and substance. Don't miss this roadster, call today!
