Allmän beskrivning :
1965 Shelby Cobra Carroll Shelby left a legacy with his historic Cobra and to own a real one will only ever be a dream for most of us car guys. The true originals fetch crazy numbers nowadays so the next best thing is a replica. You get the looks, the style, the power, and speed of these awesome factory race cars without investing a fortune. Out of the reproduction cars one of the best on the market is the Factory Five Racing Cobra. According to Factory Five they are "best selling, best engineered, and best performing replica of all time." Looking at this car, it definitely backs up those claims. It is an extremely well put together Cobra with a great look. It is a fresh build with only 22 miles on it since being completed. It is coated in a very slick Red paint with dual White racing stripes. While it is a safety feature, the single roll bar also contributes to that race car look and is nicely chromed. It has nicely chromed front and rear dual bumperettes which are the rounded style and are fitted close to the body. The latching chrome gas cap mounted to the rear fender and recessed into the body. It has the correct stacked dual taillights and rounded headlights up front which are working properly. It has a single chrome drivers side adjustable mirror and the front glass is wrapped in chrome trim and fitted with side wind reflectors. It has no door handles which is standard for these open top roadsters and the door seams are all tight. That iconic oval front nose is backed by nice mesh steel which stretches all the way behind the bumperettes and adds to that already tough looking exterior. The car sits on true 10 spoke knock off wheels which are exactly what you want to see on these cars. The tires are Nitto Extremo ZRs size 255/40ZR17. When these cars are built there is an endless number of options for the drivetrain. We are very happy to see this one built up with a 351 Windsor which works very well in these cars. Not only are they lighter but parts are plentiful, affordable and most of all it is a classic Ford motor. It features a Holley 750 double pumper carb, MSD ignition, Edelbrock air gap intake, Red painted block, Red pulleys, Ford Racing valve cars, and Ford Racing air cleaner. It performs very well and is a blast to drive. So it has the looks, well what about the sound you ask? This thing does not disappoint with ceramic coated headers into dual side pipes this car sounds just like the race car it was meant to be. Heating issues are rectified thanks to the aluminum radiator with electric fans. It has a 5 speed transmission and moves through the gears smoothly. The cockpit is done in all Black upholstery with dual bucket seats. They are fitted with Simpson 4 point harnesses and nicely upholstered. Between the seats sits a chrome fire extinguisher and center console to house the emergency brake and shifter. The dash has that complete race car look being designed for functionality with everything in reach. It has Factory Five Black gauges with toggle switches and LED indicators. In front of the driver is a Factory Five steering wheel with woodgrain as tribute to the originals. The trunk is nicely carpeted and provides storage space for all your needed car show or track gear. The Shelby Cobra is a dream car to many and this one gives you the opportunity to have one of your very own. We can't stress enough how fun these cars are to cruise around in. Park this sweet Cobra in your garage for $52,750.00!
