1965 Shelby Cobra -- Additional Info:

When you're looking for a Cobra to be a bad-boy racer, this is the one. With a dual-quad performance V8, tough-as-nails look, and plenty of side pipe growl, this one will always leave an impression. This gets the Cobra attitude right. Wide fenders, wide tires, quick-jack racing bumpers, a big hood scoop, and an even bigger roll hoop. So while there's nice polished components in places like the American Racing wheels and long side pipes, there's also no... mistaking this is a serious machine. Even the red paint looks purpose-built. It's slick-look in passing, but there's also underlying tone up close that make it look like this was built in a race garage. It gives the car an extra dose of attitude that's backed up when you look under the hood (more on that in a moment.) Inside, the competition-style attitude continues. Low-back bucket seats, racing harnesses, and a grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel make you feel race-ready. The Hurst shifter falls exactly where you want your right hand to be, and the full VDO gauge package lets you keep an eye on everything. And have you noticed the Tilton adjustable brake knob? It's just another extra that's part of a more track-focused machine. Under the hood is where you'll find your favorite flair. After all, pieces like the Ford Racing valve coverts and steel-braided hoses are there to help fortify this monster motor. You're looking at a strong Jasper crate 302 cubic-inch V8. It has a roller cam, remote oil filter, and MSD ignition. Plus, we know you spotted the dual Edelbrock 500 CFM four-barrel carburetors that allow this V8 to inhale with serious power. And the headers feeding the Jet coated side pipes unleash a ferocious exhale. This is a powerful package and so you need a stout setup to handle it all. That's why you have a Tremec TKO500 five-speed manual transmission. It feeds a Ford limited-slip 9-inch rear with 3.89 Richmond ring & pinion and Moser axles. The suspension is a Mustang II-style tubular A-arm up front, four-link rear, and adjustable QA1 coilovers all around. Plus, you have four-wheel disc brakes and the grip Goodyear Eagle GT II tires. So it's a great total package. The sale comes with the dealer invoice, maintenance records, build receipts, and restoration photos. This is the powerful mean Cobra you want when it's time to attack the tarmac. So don't miss out. Call now!
