1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five Mark III Description:

Vehicle Original VIN : DMV09242007
We love a good Cobra replica because you always get a terrific power car setup, but there are also some that add the right custom touches. That's what gets us excited about this 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five Mark III. You have a stroker V8, five-speed, four-wheel disc brakes, and sports suspension to give you the proper Cobra feel. But you'll also spot the right individual style inside and out for added distinction.

Laser Red paint gets this roadster noticed. The bold paint has vividness that makes this sunshine-friendly roadster glow in the Sunday sunlight. And the iconic racing stripes are done in a metallic gray for added distinction. The whole package was completed in 2007 and about 11k miles ago. While that already makes this one young, what makes this even fresher is its level of care. This has only been with its builder this far, and so when you take the time to make it, you treat it right. This has the classic race-ready details, like the quick-jack bumpers and a terrific set of polished side pipes. But you'll also notice some details that make it more pleasant for added usefulness. For example, the dual roll hoops are nicer for having a passenger. Plus, the Bullet-style wheels not only look cool, but the larger 17-inch size also lets you fit better modern tires.

Inside is more of the correct Cobra style with the low-back racing bucket seats, full Simpson racing harnesses, the gearstick angled forward, mounted fire extinguisher, and an open-air cockpit that lets you really hear the side pipes roar. But they also took the time to give you some more thoughtful details, like a beautiful real African wood dash and the matching console with cup holders. And even with these distinct upgrades, you still get the dash dominated by proper readouts - including the Shelby-correct reversed speedometer.

Under the hood is a clean and mean presentation. The car may have under 12k miles on it, but the motor is even fresher with only about 5k miles. This started as a hardy 302 cubic inch V8 and then was stroked to 347ci total. It has been enhanced and fortified with a hydraulic roller cam, roller rockers, aluminum heads, a forged steel crankshaft, forged steel connecting rods, and forged pistons with a 10:1 compression. It inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. It exhales with added power and as ceramic-coated headers feed the rumbling side pipes. There are also good supporting components, like the remote oil filter, newer wiring, MSD ignition system, and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. This is a strong-running package, and you take full control with the Borg Warner T5 five-speed manual transmission. Plus, you have a strong steel frame, tubular A-arm front end, a reinforced four-link rear, adjustable coilovers at each wheel, four-wheel disc brakes, and ZR-rated performance tires. It all makes for a well-done high-performance package.

Complete with service manuals, this is the iconic-looking Cobra with extra features and awesome V8 power. So don't let this roadster of distinction slip away. Call today!!!
