Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this super
clean Factory Five 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica Built in 2002 and is
titled as a 2003 Roadster. The Factory Five company was established
in 1995 and has quickly and consistently built a name for
themselves for producing some of the finest Cobra Replica kits in
the world. Factory Five collaborates with each customer on their
personal build which results in amazing success. The number of
available options really help to make each build custom and
personalized. This example has a high-revving, fuel injected 302
C.I.D. V/8 is tucked between the fenders of this replica along with
a 5-speed manual transmission paired up to a Ford limited-slip rear
end. The engine has been upgraded with an MSD ignition box, MSD
coil packs, and side-pipe exhaust, and Mustang Cobra style wheels
makes for a very enjoyable driving experience and the 4-wheel disc
braking brings it to a sure-footed stop. The white with blue
stripes is a beautiful color scheme for this Cobra and works well
with the black interior. The minimalistic dash layout lets you keep
your attention on the most important engine vitals without
overloading you with information. The V/8 rumbles to life with
ease, thanks to the fuel injection, regardless of the temperature.
Take a seat in this Cobra and you are sure to see why these have
been such a popular car in the decades since its introduction, as
well as the numerous replica companies that have spawned from its
design. The white ball shifter feels right at hope in the palm of
your hand, the steering feels just weighted enough to give proper
feedback without being a strain at low speeds, and the chassis
happily darts through the corners and roars up the streets. This
Cobra is a beautiful example of exactly what Carrol Shelby's idea
of an ideal race car in the mid '60's. This Cobra replica is set up
to cruise the open road, but a heavy foot will have this Cobra
screaming down the backroads!
