Description:

1965 Shelby Daytona --

This is no wanna be kit car. This is a high performance, high tech road and track ready sports car! Built in 2010, it has only 605 miles total. It's a Factory Five recreation of the priceless Shelby Daytona. Built originally by Caroll Shelby, only 6 were ever made. This car made Shelby the first American builder to ever win a world sportscar championship title, typically dominated by Ferrari. This recreation is very faithful to the appearance of the original.... EXTERIOR: Very authentic to the original's shape, dimensions and features. Finished in signature Shelby colors- Wimbledon white with blue racing stripes. Vintage decals and race #s add to it's race heritage. Upfront it features a flip forward front end with aerodynamic covered headlights, massive air intake, scoops and bulge just like the original. Also like the original it features plexiglass wind deflectors, sliding side windows and air scoops. The rear hatch window is Lexan. In back it features authentic dovetail design, round taillights, external battery terminals and air outlets. Just like the original it uses a pop up racing style aluminum gas cap. The wheels are authentic style with true knock off spinners. 15 inch with BFG tires, extra wide in back. INTERIOR: Just like sitting in the cockpit of a race car, well there's one exception- it has air conditioning vents! The seats are leather wrapped racing style buckets designed to hold you firmly in place. If that is not enough the Simpson racing harnesses do the job. It's got a full tubular roll cage that does not get in the way all. It's fully carpeted front and back, headliner is cushioned cloth. The dash has all the easy to read gauges you would expect to find, there is also a battery shut off switch. The Shelby style wood and aluminum spoke steering wheel is a nice touch. The 5-speed trans is easy to shift through the years and it has a nice Cobra shifter handle. There is also an emergency brake, racing style pedals and a fire extinguisher. It actually is easy to see out, the big window and rear view mirror are unobstructed. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The powerplant is a bored and stroked 427 starting with a 351 Windser block. It has aluminum water pump, intake, heads and Trick Flow valve covers. A huge Holley carb delivers the fuel, has electronic ignition and long tube headers feed the side exhaust. Has remote oil filter for easy access. The motor is kept cool with a big aluminum radiator, electric fan, stainless hoses and there is an overflow bottle. The air enters in the front, passes through the radiator and the aluminum shroud effectively exits the hot air out before reaching the motor. The front of the motor uses serpentine belt and pulley system, new alternator and a Vintage Air a/c system. It also has heat. UNDERSIDE: Holy cow, this is the real deal. Look at all the high end features. Tubular chassis, independent front and rear suspension, forced air cooled brakes etc. The structure is very substantial using big fat tubes in the middle that connect to a spider web of square and round tube supports, many you can't see. The chassis has been painted blue. The floors, firewall, wheel wells and more are filled in with light weight aluminum. The front suspension has tubular control arms with coil over adjustable shocks. The disc brakes have air ducts from front scoops directly to the rotors. The rack & pinion steering is very responsive. In back it also has independent suspension with tubular control arms, adjustable coil over shocks and a horizontal shock dampener for better handling. The rear end center section is aluminum. The bottom of the motor and trans is spotless. Has custom oil pan, high torque starter, heavy duty scatter shield and a Tremec 5-speed trans. There is a fuel cell. Underneath this car is impressive. This car does not weigh much. It is a blast to drive. The sound, handling, acceleration are awesome. Like an extreme adult version of a go-cart. And everything is new. Not 605 miles since restored, 605 miles since it was created!
