1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five Description:

Finished 2 years ago and only 2,612 miles since completed. It's a premium Factory Five kit and all new parts were used. The motor, trans and rear were rebuilt. This is the first Cobra i have seen with air conditioning! An in depth independent 7 page inspection/appraisal is included. It also has a build book with the specs and info.
EXTERIOR: Hand laid composite body was blocked smooth. It has a complete body wrap in satin blue. Over the top white stripes. Features include bumpers, wing windows, pop up gas cap and dual 3 point roll bars. Original style Halibrand wheels with knock off spinners and wrapped in Cobra tires. Reproduction Lucas lights, LED headlights. A new black convertible top and side curtain windows are included.
INTERIOR: The Racing style bucket seats are upholstered in leather with embroidered Cobras. The Simpson harness will keep you securely fastened. There is a complete set of Auto Meter gauges. I especially like the Shelby shift knob and wood rim wheel. This one also has interior lights and ax12 volt receptacle.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Complete performance rebuild. It is making about 400 hp and 375 lbs of torque, dyno sheet is included. Started with a 302 short block and it has all new parts- pistons, crankshaft rods etc. It has a Comp roller cam, roller rockers, high volume oil pump, double roller timing chain and ARP bolts. On top is an Edelbrock intake, American Roadster self tuning fuel injection, 30 lb injectors, 70 mm Mass Air Flow and Edelbrock fuel rails. It has Ford Racing distributor and 8mm wires. A set of headers feed the side exhaust. It runs cool with a high flow aluminum Ron Davis radiator with dual electric fans and a billet overflow bottle. Here is something I've never seen before on a Cobra- air conditioning and heat!
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has been lined with carpet. The battery is in a battery box. There is an emergency fuel cut off. There is a Cobra pouch for the lead hammer used to remove the knock offs.
UNDERSIDE: Ford Racing powder coated full tube space frame. Factory Five independent suspension front and back. Upfront it has tubular control arms, coilover gas adjustable shocks, swaybar, rack & pinion steering. It also has independent rear suspension with a 3 link set up, tubular control arms. coilover gas adjustable shocks, panhard bar and swaybar. Mustang Cobra 4 wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors and an e-brake system. New fuel system. Looking up at the motor it has a cadmium plated extra capacity oil pan, remote oil filter and a high torque starter. Quick Time bell housing, Centerforce clutch and a T5 5-speed trans. 8.8 inch rear with traction lock gears. All aluminum floors. It still looks practically new.
Of all the cars I've driven there is nothing as exhilarating as a Cobra. The go cart like handling, the roar of the pipes, the wind blowing against your skin and of course a power to weight ratio that's impressive!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
