For Sale: 1965 Factory Five Cobra in St. Louis, Missouri


Vehicle Description

This Factory Five Cobra is a Mk III body that was purchased in 2008 and has just over 6,000 miles since completion. It's finished in the Ford GT color Tungsten Silver over a black interior. The engine is a Ford Strokers 408 small block running a Mass Flo fuel injection system. With the current set up, this motor absolutely rips and makes 410 rear-wheel horsepower on the dyno running a conservative tune. In this little car, that's a whole lot of "go."
