1965 Shelby Cobra
This car is an absolute "spot on" tribute to the original dream machine that thundered the roads of yesteryear, when driving was still man and machine...It is a joy to drive and performs like you would expect a car with 400 HP at 2220 lbs would!! As an old school car enthusiast I have owned and driven many classics, but nothing compares to the " seat of the pants" thrill of this little two seat beast! I have been behind the wheel of other Cobra Kit cars and this is so much nicer than some I have driven. This beauty is a professionally built, MK2 Roadster from Factory Five Racing. What sets it apart is the build, which has only 1200 miles on it, and the parts, which were all new ( since the original owner was in the parts supply business.) NO DONOR CAR... There is a professionally built 400 HP Ford 302 engine that sounds awesome through catted side pipes. A FIVE SPEED TREMEC trans and Ford rear delivers the power to the pavement. The paint is gorgeous red with painted on black striping. Smooth ride, no shakes, no vibration at any speed. These cars are all about the build quality and the parts. This one is a bargain at this price but will not be the cheapest one you see.... Also- Extensive effort went into getting the car titled and registered as a 1965 so it qualifies as an antique for both licensing and insuring purposes. Every piece of documentation on the car is included..I am happy to share further info with serious buyers.
