For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Cedar Rapids, Iowa


Vehicle Description

1965 Shelby Cobra Reproduction

Unless you are an over zealous Rip Van Winkle or you just climbed out of your time machine from the year 2213, you know the legend of Carroll Shelby and the massaged AC Cobra with the small block Ford V8 and the racing legend that followed. There is no other car that has been replicated more than the Shelby Cobra. And why would there be? With a timeless body design, power to weight ratio that seemed to make time stand still, and the engineering and driving prowess of a legend behind it, it was a no brainer. This fine example is titled as 1965 with a Wisconsin assigned VIN. This is one is powered by a strong 351 with a T-5 5 speed and a 3.60 Ford Posi Rear End. The bucket seats are leather with headrests and it comes with VDO gauges in the dash. It roars around on 15 Inch Weld alloy wheels with BFG radials. Of course there is the mandatory side exhaust that will disturb your neighbors. Braking comes from front disc and rear drums that have been recently serviced. For anyone with that need for speed and style that will turn heads everywhere you cruise along and bring with you the look and feel of the legend from Texas, you can enjoy this one today.
