1965 Shelby Cobra -- Additional Info:

When you're ready to step up to a true track day machine, this 700 horsepower 1965 Shelby Cobra is ready for you. Your first impression gives you the same timeless racer feeling that a good Cobra replica can bring. It even has bright blue paint and chrome wheels for added flair. But as you take your time to look closer, you soon realize that this one is far more race-ready than most of the others out there. The... quick jack bumpers, auxiliary racing lights, driver roll hoop, and lift-off hood are all instant symbols of a competition machine. And you'll even notice the doors line is completely smooth. While you might like the sealed doors because you're a fan of hopping in Dukes of Hazzard style, the real reason for this feature is so they could add an extra part to the safety cage. You might also notice the other components that you'll need for higher-end racing events like five-point harnesses and a fire suppression system. The competition-grade bucket seats hold you snug; the shifter falls in the ideal position; and the small diameter sports steering wheel has tons of grip. As you look out over the carbon fiber-wrapped dash, and you'll notice all your essential gauges, especially the large AutoMeter Ultra-Lite speedo and tach prominently in the center. And that big glowing orb in the middle of it all is the start button calling out for you to fire this beast up. Under the hood is what makes this such a race day dream machine. It's a Roush-built 351 SVO dry sump block with siamese bore. Oh yes, this is a high-strength setup built for competition. Plus, it has plenty of performance upgrades like a large Demon four-barrel carburetor, Roush performance intake, Scott plug wires, Stant aluminum radiator, steel braided hoses, and headers that feed those thunderous side pipes. The full package is rated at an estimated 700 horsepower on race gas. With this kind ferocious power, you'll be glad to have a competition-grade four-speed manual transmission and stout Ford 9-inch rear end. All four wheels have adjustable coilovers, Wilwood disc brakes, and grippy Hankook Ventus Sport tires to keep grip assured. Complete with title documentation, this is the Cobra for those who know the advantage a true track day monster can bring. But this beastly roadster won't stay idle for long. Call now!
