Carrol Shelby was motivated by speed as a driver and after retiring from racing he obtained a license to import the AC Ace. He fell in love with the performance of the small English roadster at Le Mans and knew he could beef it up with a Ford V8 to compete with the fastest autos in the world. Shelby's thirst for performance and the victory circle caused him to become a household name and automotive legend, and the AC Cobra is his crowning achievement. Factory Five Racing was founded in 1995. They are the world's largest manufacturer of component car kits. Factory Five Racing is located in Wareham, Massachusetts. Their products are made right here in the USA, in the heart of New England, where American manufacturing was born.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this outstanding example of a Shelby Replica. This Cobra is finished with Racing Blue, containing small metal flakes that make it shimmer in the sunlight. It is a fiberglass body to reduce the weight of the car, not like there was much of a weight problem, to begin with! It is powered by a 5.8L 351 Windsor engine, which is fed by a Holley Single 4-Barrel Carb and fired up with an electronic ignition. Some other mechanics include Edelbrock heads, Tremec 5-Speed manual transmission, MSD coil, ignition, and Distributor. Also for suspension, this Cobra has front independent, as well as 4-link rear suspension. The always recognizable body is the rare Racing Blue with White racing stripes, carbon fiber body, chrome roll bar, and accent pieces. The frame has been powder coated black, and in great shape, this car has 18'' Cobra wheels, with Goodyear Eagle GT Tires. The interior is super clean with the recognizable Cobra floormats and Hurst shifter. With a split spoke steering wheel and a Simpson 5-point harness to keep you strapped in when you open it up!
