Description

The great Factory Five 427 Cobra roadster.

The Factory Five Roadster is one of the world's best-selling, best-engineered, and best-performing replicas of all time. The Factory Five Cobra replica is an accurate reproduction of the look, performance, and spirit of the original Shelby Cobra. The Factory Five Cobra is a masterfully engineered Cobra replica designed to excite the senses and provide hours of great entertainment at speed behind the wheel.

For those of us not fortunate enough to have a million dollars laying around to own a real AC Cobra, the next best option is to find a replica that you can drive, enjoy and be the envy of your entire neighborhood without breaking the bank. This Antique and Collectable Autos Cobra Replica is a perfect option for this very thing! The look, sound, power and feel of the Cobra remains on the bucket list of many motoring enthusiasts and long before original examples far began exceeding 7 figures in value, independent manufacturing companies began building replica versions of the famed Cobra.

If you're the anxious type, or someone who doesn't feel like investing a small fortune in a custom build, then this turn-key upgraded MKII frame tubed aluminum car is right up your alley. It's a complete and straight roadster finished in a 20k Black cherry metallic (receipts available when found) that looks great on this American racing legend. Mixed in with that great paint is a set of Red stripes. After all, a Cobra without racing lines just isn't right. Details like tall driver roll hoop, flip-up gas cap, and push bumpers not only add serious flair, but also suggest that it was built for combat. Nothing says race-ready like Halibrand style wheels with proper knock-off hubs.

With serious V8 performance, C6 automatic transmission with overdrive, and a fully independent suspension. The car roars through the gears with precise shifting, the suspension gives excellent driver feedback from apex to apex, and the brakes stop straight and true.

We should not have to explain any further why you want this 1965 Shelby Cobra, but we are going to go through all the details so you know this one is even better than you expected. it is an absolute blast to drive and will be a pleasure to own.

This Cobra does not lack for power, Filling the engine bay is big bold Ford power! It's a huge 351 cubic-inch V8 crate motor with 13k in upgrades. I have the receipts but unable to locate at this time. Once found I will post a picture of them. So having power and monster torque under the hood is already a distinction that's worth this price alone. But more than just displacement, it has all the right performance upgrades such as a GT 40 Aluminum heads, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer polished aluminum intake, thermal switched electric fan, and headers that feed those rumbling side pipes.

This V8 does a great job of moving the lightweight fiberglass body, and you can stay in the power band with ease thanks to the C6 automatic transmission with Overdrive. Of course, all this superior power is nothing without control. That's why this Cobra comes with a fully independent suspension with adjustable coil overs in the front fixed in rear. It's backed up by thick sway bars and a four-wheel power disc brake package. Electric power steering.

It would an excellent choice for any track or just intimidating the competition at the next local car show. It's likely that building a similar specimen would end up doubling the cost of this well-kept and attention-grabbing example. no money was spared building this car all parts are new or remanufactured, It is powered by a professionally prepared 351 mated to a C6 Overdrive automatic transmission, delivering power to pavement through a PosiTraction rear end. The car has been driven just 980 miles since its completion in 2005 and remains excellent in all areas as one would expect.

The interior absolutely gets the Shelby attitude right. The interior of this example is outfitted with period-correct wrap-around buckets finished in a premium carbon fiber with red suede leather inserts, and Simpson racing harnesses for driver and passenger. Custom original artist signed murals/partings signed, Pictured so you can do the research on artist, these doors may be worth $$$$$ I paid $1000.00 per door. If you find the value of these artist originals please advise me, I may be willing to sell the doors to preserve the paintings. You'll love the three spoke cobra sports steering wheel with GT horn cap and a performance shifter that fits the driver perfectly. The full Smiths gauge package is AC Cobra correct, right down to the reverse position speedometer. There's no radio, no power windows, no A/C – this is a competition machine that's all about the driving experience and nothing else needs to get in the way.

Features include: Smiths instrumentation with correct reverse-sweep speedometer, Edelbrock Performance Carb, Headers, Power Brakes, Electric Cooling Fan, Classic Side Pipe Exhaust, Halibrand Style Knock Off Wheels, Carpeted Interior, Classic Style Seats, Chrome Single Roll Hoop, Wind Wings, Talbot Mirror. Power disc brakes, oil cooler, correct style latches and hardware, sun visors, full carpet including trunk

Cobra continuation cars have fallen into favor in the collector car world and quality, thoughtful builds such as this are now starting to climb in value. If you've considered a Cobra re-creation, you owe it to yourself to check out this excellent re-creation of the original '60s era Shelby Cobra.
