For Sale: 1965 Ford Cobra in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee is proud in presenting this Superperformance 1965 Cobra. While one could go on forever on the history of a tall lanky man by the name of Carroll who designed one of the most iconic roadsters of all time in terms of appearance and performance; it would be far more appropriate to talk about this superior recreation that has improved almost every aspect of a car that is now regarded as one of the most legendary things on 4 wheels. Since the founding date in 1996, Superperformance has gained a reputation in building replica cars of extremely high end cars that are arguably superior to the originals they are meant to represent including models such as the Cobra MKIII, MKII, Shelby Daytona Couple, GT40, and a convincing recreation of the legendary 1963 Corvette Grand Sport. Ontop of nostalgia, the cars are offered with different packages and features that may not have been offered on the cars before such as air conditioning, power brakes, power steering, etc. while maintaining superior quality to all the competitors. This gorgeous Cobra captures the iconic look they came with featuring the glossy blue paint that is set off by those white super stripes that go up the middle of the car. Everything on the outside of this beast could easily could speak to a purist from the real knock off wheels, to the black powder coated side pipes, to the Smiths gauges, all the way down to the forward oriented shifter that pays true homage to the way these cars were setup. The tasteful liberties taken aren't even brought up until you'd lift the hood and find a 358ci V8 built to stock car specifications with a 13 quart dry sump oil system to support the behemoth 600+ horsepower output this puts through a 4-speed manual transmission. The Cobra only weighs in the neighborhood of 1900 pounds; let that sink in for a moment. This car has the looks of the past like it was built yesterday but the performance to suggest that it's trying to leave ground. To say that this car is one of a kind is a true understatement and you'll be hard pressed to find another Cobra built as beautifully as this one. Call today and see how you can own something so unique and beautiful that you'll have trouble letting someone so much as breathe in its direction.
