For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

With serious big block performance, a five-speed manual, and a fully independent suspension, this is a true driver's Cobra. So if you know how to enjoy your classic, this 1965 Shelby Superformance Cobra is the premium road-ready racecar that you know is perfect for you.


You already know that Superformance is the gold standard in the Cobra business. The bodies are built to quality standards, and they arrive with a factory-built quality that means you can enjoy them with both pride and confidence. It's a complete and straight roadster finished in a metallic blue that looks great on this American racing legend. Mixed in with that great paint is a set of white stripes painted on top. After all, a Cobra without racing streaks just isn't right. Details like tall driver roll hoop, flip-up gas cap, quick-jack bumpers, and large side pipes not only add serious flair, but also they suggest that this sharp-looking roadster was built for combat. And nothing says race-ready like Halibrand-style wheels with proper knock-off hubs.


The interior absolutely gets the Shelby attitude right. It starts with wraparound buckets finished in premium leather. Plus, there are Simpson racing seatbelts and a fire extinguisher on the rear panel. You'll love the grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel and a performance shifter that fits the driver perfectly. The full Smiths gauge package is AC Cobra correct, right down to the reverse position speedometer.


The engine bay is extra tidy, and so you can really get a clear view of the extra-large powerhouse. It's a huge 460 cubic-inch V8. So having big block power and monster torque under the hood is already a distinction that's worth this price alone. But more than just displacement, it has all the right performance upgrades such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, finned cast valve covers, an aluminum radiator w/electric fan, and headers that feed those rumbling side pipes. This V8 does a great job of moving the lightweight fiberglass body, and you can stay in the powerband with ease thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Of course, all this superior power is nothing without control. That's why this Cobra comes with a fully independent suspension with adjustable coil overs at each corner. It's backed up by thick sway bars and a four-wheel power disc brake package.


This is the Cobra that's not only more powerful than many others, but also the fun doesn't end when the road adds a few curves. So don't let this all-around stunner get away. Call today!!!
