For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five is about style and substance. So it has one of the boldest and sleekest finishes around, and the fuel-injected 5.0 V8 and five-speed make sure the smile on your face is as radiant as the paint.

The red paint really makes you fall in love with this roadster from the moment it comes into view. It's equal parts slick and aggressive, and so it looks fantastic as the light evenly rolls across the well-done body and flared fender style of this car. It is part of a build that was completed in 2006, and when you pay for quality, it truly lasts. It's also believed that there's only about 3k miles on the car since completion. While the paint already gives this a ton of flair, it gets turned up a few more notches by brightwork pieces like push bumpers, windshield frame, and roll hoop that all shine like mirrors. The crisp white racing stripes are painted on top to make this easily recognized as a race car for the road. And the Cobra R-style wheels, hood scoop, and wicked side pipes are also part of a package that means business.

The interior shows off more of this car's quality. The upholstery, carpeting, dash, and doors all have the feeling of a clean and well-respected car. And part of this level of quality is because the interior can stay protected with the racing tonneau. This respects the classic Cobra feeling with details like the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, forward gearstick, side wind wings, and low-back bucket seats. But this also gives you the right worthwhile modern upgrades, like Simpson racing harnesses and crisp AutoMeter Sport-Comp gauges with a large speedo and tach.

Under the hood is true blue oval power. You can tell this is a more modern fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8. That seems fitting in this more modern build. After all, the first AC Cobras had the 289 V8 borrowed from the early Mustangs, and so this later Factory Five car keeps the Mustang heart, but with a larger and a better package. In fact, the motor was broken down, inspected, and was given new gaskets and Cobra valve covers before going into this roadster. It fires up eagerly, and the BBK headers let it exhale with power into the rumbling side pipes. The World Class T5 five-speed manual transmission is said to be a low-mileage unit, which means confident control of the V8 power and its thunderous soundtrack. And speaking of control, you also have great features like a strong steel chassis, front disc brakes, adjustable front upper control arms, and adjustable coilovers in the rear.

The sale comes with build receipts, service manuals, and build photos. This is the iconic-looking Cobra with extra flair and growling V8 power. So don't let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
