1965 Shelby Shelby Cobra RoadsterYou are looking at a 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica made by Factory Five Motorsports in silver with burgundy stripes. This car is an ABSOLUTE beast of a ride with under 12,000 miles on the clock. I have 3 of these cobras now, 2 Factory Five’s and one Everett Morrison car (just sold my Shelby Valley one as well), and this is arguably one of the best driving ones out there. The previous owners of this car were a lovely couple who also had a few themselves and took special care of this one and enjoyed it just as I have since my ownership. This is a fuel injected car so it's a pleasure to drive over long distances while being extremely reliable and fun! Over $60,000 has been invested into this Cobra and you can tell by looking at it. It is insanely fun and fast. People old and young stop in their tracks anytime I take her out. With the summer weather coming along, it's a great time for someone else to enjoy her
The car was appraised at over $46,000 in 2005 by the previous owner and I still have the original appraisal documents. I also have some older pictures from the build and many original documents with the car.
The mechanicals on this car are fully sorted. I've had ZERO issues driving this car. It is powered by a fuel injected 5.0 High Output V8 Ford Engine. If you know these cars and want to actually enjoy one without worrying much, save yourself the trouble and get a fuel injected car. My Everett Morrison car is not fuel injected and doesn't get driven nearly as much as this one does. This thing starts with no issues and idles very smoothly. Pulls hard in every gear and hasn't given me a single problem yet. It is coupled with a 5 speed transmission that shifts smoothly.
The exterior is in great shape. All chromes are solid the color combo of silver on burgundy really stands out. The car also has the dual roll hoop, which is a lot safer. Bumpers, window trims, roll hoop and side mount exhausts all look great.
The interior is in fantastic shape. It’s got original 5-point harnesses, a mounted fire extinguisher, and a wooden steering wheel that really stands out with this color scheme. The trunk is also carpeted and not bare metal.
This car is an absolute pleasure to drive with the fuel injection. Summer is here so it would make an absolutely perfect toy for someone who wants a quality Cobra Replica without breaking the bank. I have been daily driving it to the office for the last month or so and it's been very reliable.
