1965 Shelby Cobra -- Additional Info:

When Corky Bell set out to build the world's most high tech Cobra he assembled a talented cast of gearheads and began what would eventually be called Project Mongoose. Work primarily focused on creating athletic mechanicals that bettered the classic Cobra driving experience and creating a cockpit that would actually sell to someone over average height. Ultimately the build combined many high quality aftermarket components with a twin turbo V8 11 custom cast parts and a slick Antiques & Collecti...bles composite body. And today decked in a screaming combination of Bright Yellow and black the car rolls as a virtually timeless hot rod that looks like a 10 and drives like an 11! Tilt the louvered hood and you'll find 385 cubic inches of Ford Windsor V8 that twists 505 rear wheel horsepower into 540 lb./ft. of pavement-scorching torque. Take a look under the car and you'll find a rigid 2-inch square-tube frame that in addition to providing 14-15K lb./ft. of deflection places 57% of the car's weight over its rear axles. That monocoque-reinforced foundation makes good use of a Porsche G50/50 5-speed transaxle which has been reversed inverted and mounted between a custom driveshaft a Porsche limited-slip differential and a familiar Centerforce clutch pack. That incredible drivetrain rides on a fully independent suspension which is fitted with Heim joints Aldan coil-over-shocks and Woodward power rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners of that suspension Baer 4-piston calipers clamp big slotted rotors to provide consistent sure-footed stops. And power meets the pavement via 17-inch Team III alloys that spin fresh 245/40 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As in front of 275/40 BF Goodrich g-Force T/As. With its high quality build killer small block and track ready drivetrain this vivid Cobra wraps an unmatched driving experience in spectacular good looks. Call click or visit for more information!
