For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Serious style, big block power, and a rare automatic transmission are all part of this 1965 Shelby Cobra. In fact, this is a rare Roger Upton quality build.

Roger Upton (RUCC) Cobras are often sought-after cars today. There are not too many known out there, and part of the reason why was that they were known to take their time to make a quality product. This is a 2003 build and is titled as such. And it's believed that the full mileage is under 3k. This low mileage and high quality are reflected in the fit and finish of the body. And speaking of reflection, the light gray paint has a nice clearcoat shine to radiate in the sunlight. The luster also shows off the curves of the most enduring sports car profiles in history. It also has the right performance details with the hood scoop, roll hoop, and menacing side pipes. And those genuine racing wheels with knock-off hubs have an extra-wide rear set to show where the power meets the pavement.

More of this Cobra's distinction is seen inside. The wood trim on the doors, center console, and dash are a specialized touch that reminds you the design first came from AC Cars in England. Low-back bucket seats, classic racing seatbelts, toggle switches, and retro-style gauges are all part of the vintage feeling. But there's a freshness throughout that reminds you this is a more modern build.

You'll love lifting the hood to show off the tidy big block power. The long polished Cobra air topper looks great, and those Cobra valve covers correctly announce you have the mighty 460 V8 motor within. The V8 has been enhanced with go-fast goodies like Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and wrapped headers that add power while contributing to the thunder of those side pipes. The tidy belts, wires, and hoses tell they spent good money maintaining this icon. And you even have an aluminum radiator with an electric fan to keep the package running cool. The three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit to handle the big power motor, and at the same time delivers added grand touring comfort. As you look underneath, you'll spot tubular steel front control arms, a four-link rear, and adjustable coilovers. Plus, four-wheel disc brakes and new tires make for ideal traction.

Complete with maintenance records, this is the shining, distinct, powerful, and high-quality build that you've been waitng for. So don't let it slip away. Call today!!!
