For Sale: 1965 Shelby Daytona in Irvine, California

Vehicle Description

RPMSPC0055 is a tribute to the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupes that wrested the FIA world sportscar championship away from Ferrari in 1965. Those cars were built when the Shelby Cobra roadster lacked the high speed aerodynamics needed to win on European tracks. Carroll Shelby commissioned Peter Brock to create a coupe body for the car and the Daytona promptly began winning races.

This Superformance car is a modern update of the car that won in 1965. Penned by original designers Peter Brock and Bob Negstad, the car features a tough composite body with show quality paint. The Daytona features a tubular space frame constructed of mild steel, a fully independent suspension front and rear with coil over progressive shocks and springs and a limited slip differential. Four-wheel vented disc brakes with power assisted calipers help stop the car while a power assisted rack and pinion steering provides sharp handling.

RPMSPC0055 is a brilliant red with Wimbledon White stripes sports car. It rides on 18" Halibrand style aluminum wheels. Side exit headers and side pipes deliver a throaty roar.

Inside the Coupe, the black leather interior boasts air conditioning system, Stewart Warner gauges, remote door locks and an immobilizer system. The fastback has a wooden heritage steering wheel along with black leather seats.

The car's small block Ford V8 produces over 525 horsepower; it is connected to a smooth shifting Tremec 5 speed manual transmission. The aluminum radiator with oil cooler use dual electric fans to help keep the engine cool.

The suspension was upgraded with custom axles and driveshaft, along with RideTech Fully Adjustable Coilover Gas Shocks. RPMSPC0055 is titled as 1965 Shelby in California. With only 9,000 miles it is now available for $174,950.
