1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five customized with multiple options

This outstanding professionally hand-built Shelby (AC) Cobra combines museum quality new construction with the practicality of a daily driver. This is a Factory Five chassis and body that has been customized and constructed by Kriss Motors featuring a powerful fuel-injected V8 matched with an ultra-smooth independent front and rear suspension. Added bonus: removable driver and passenger roll bars with head rests for quick street-to-track conversion.

Licensed as a 1965 antique in Florida, this Cobra blends together period-correct details with modern improvements like electronic fuel ignition. Everything is fully tested and complete in every respect.

As the sole reference car used to develop the popular Mk4Build.com web site for Factory Five Racing Mk3 models, this re-creation of the 1965 original represents the highest standards of custom, purpose-built specialty automobiles.

ALL NEW PARTS! Exceptional body work with rounded edges, professional fitment, period-correct Halibrand 17” spinner racing wheels, chrome bumpers. Beautiful finish and trim throughout the cockpit with leather seats and door panels.

Plush black Bentley carpets, generous sound and heat insulation, custom head rests that attach to both driver and passenger roll bars, as well as a super-smooth independent rear suspension provide safety and comfort for long drives.

Experience the raw power of the Ford Racing Boss 302 engine engineered with electronic fuel injection that mirrors the vintage look under the hood by retaining the classic 1960s chromed air filter.

Many beautiful details like the chrome underside finish of the front hood! Absolutely mint condition.
