For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A 410 hp fuel-injected speed machine headlines this 1965 Shelby Cobra by Factory Five. But as you dig into all the details, you see an all-around awesome machine with everything from slick paint to an awesome chassis. It makes for your whole wish list in one car.

The red instantly grabs your attention, because it's a quality application that makes the roadster look like it's candy-coated. And it's an especially sweet treat the way it radiates when the sunlight shows off the Cobra's legendary curvy bodywork. This has been built to get noticed. So the iconic racing stripes are done in silver and painted on for permanence. Part of a real driver's car attitude means this will show a few signs of being enjoyed, but with only 8300 miles on the odometer, it continues to be a stunner. In fact, while this car is built for serious track time, they also made sure it had plenty of brightwork. It's just now showing off functional pieces, like the push bumpers, dual roll hoops, racing gas cap, and menacing side pipes. There's even bright accenting on the proper Halibrand-style racing wheels.

The interior is pure Cobra fun. You have the classic-style Simpson racing seatbelts, a wood-rimmed Factory Five sports steering wheel, a classic racing shifter, and a dash full of crisp Factory Five gauges. And Cobra people know to look for the details, like the reversed speedometer. Plus, there are a few useful luxuries you don't see on every Cobra, like wind wings and a working heater.

You can tell there's a lot going on under the hood. This is a 347 cubic-inch stroker V8 from the masters at BluePrint Engines. It's a fully built setup that includes BluePrint aluminum heads, a Holley dual filter air breather, an Edelbrock air gap intake, and BBK powder-coated exhaust headers feeding those growling side pipes. And FiTech electronic fuel injection gives you the best in power and consistency. So BluePrint delivers the motor with a 410 horsepower dyno sheet, and with the big power setup you have here, this may even crank out a bit more. There are even nice supporting components like an MSD digital 6AL ignition, an electric water pump, a March serpentine belt system, and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. The Tremec five-speed manual transmission with McLeod bellhousing and Ram performance clutch gives you full control of all the power. The chassis is a strong powder-coated tubular steel frame. And while you're checking that out in the undercarriage photos, don't forget to spot the upgraded tubular control arm front end, adjustable coilovers all around, and four-wheel disc brakes.

The sale comes complete with build receipts, title documentation, maintenance records, a service manual, and a dyno sheet. This is the slick Cobra build for serious power and serious fun. Call today!!!
