1965 Shelby Cobra --

Like most premier classics an interesting story is part of this Shelby's standard equipment. This Cobra was purchased by a hardcore enthusiast who unfortunately passed away before its completion. His daughter decided to keep the car and spent about six years and 1500 miles enjoying the sweet California sunshine. In May of 2015 this Shelby stamped with an emissions-compliant California VIN met its second owner: a North Carolina resident who titled it as a 1965 Shelby Replica. And today roughly 1...300 miles later the car roars as a near-mint showpiece that's almost entirely true to how it rolled out of the assembly shop. Prop the hood and you'll find $43K worth of FE 427 that was professionally assembled by Las Vegas's Kroyer Racing Engines in December of 2006. Cast in aluminum and punched to 468 cubic inches that monster stroker twists tough 10.49 to 1 compression into roughly 580 horsepower! The buff 427 twists torque to a slick Tremec TKO600 5-speed which wraps a quality Centerforce clutch and hydraulic Tilton throwout bearing in a tough Lakewood bellhousing. That drivetrain pushes a 4-inch tube frame which rolls on a fully independent suspension. At the corners vented discs combine with dual-piston Shelby calipers to provide confidence-inspiring stops. Modern rack-and-pinion steering makes low speed parking almost as easy as high speed sweeps. And power meets the pavement via Cobra Racing knock-offs which spin 26.5x8.0-15 Goodyear Eagle Sport Car Specials in front of 26.5x10.5-15 Goodyear Eagle Sport Car Specials. Fully sorted and ready to turn your dreams into reality this awesome Shelby embodies the unique combination of performance and style every car builder dreams about. From its timeless aluminum body to its comfortable leather cockpit there simply aren't many nicer Cobras out there. Looking for a striking show queen that's an absolute blast to drive?
