1965 Shelby Cobra Replica
This 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica has a lot more to offer than the usual "high power, low weight" proposition put forth by so many of its counterparts. Featuring an awesome color combination, excellent components and a very strong foundation, it's sure to put a smile on the face of its next lucky owner. Having logged only a little over 4000 miles, and carrying the receipts to document the quality of its build, it stands ready to provide miles and miles of future exhilarating driving.
As component cars, Shelby replicas rise and fall on the quality of their manufacturers' process and parts. Exacting tolerances, precise engineering and top tier materials go a long way towards creating a car that not only looks great, but carries the outstanding performance abilities the Cobra name is synonymous with. This replica features components from Factory Five, a respected manufacturer with more than two decades under their belt known for their cutting edge, CNC-based processes. The well-fitted appearance you see here, with body panels that sit flush and level, is the tangible result of all that precision. Because they're the automotive equivalent of a blank slate, Cobra replicas are also at times the victims of some questionable aesthetic choices, but the intense black hue with painted silver stripes on this '65 will garner a definite "thumbs up" from whomever sees it. The paint's in very nice shape - with an even shine and sharp edges on the stripes. Fresh-looking housings, clean chrome on the front and rear bumpers and a well-crafted 3-point roll bar complete its quality look.
Open the door and you'll see that a very nice, "driver-centric" interior awaits. A pair of Kirkey leather racing seats with 5-point harnesses sit in place of the generic buckets you often see in Cobra replicas, offering all the support you need to keep you firmly in place while addressing turns with authority. A full complement of Autometer gauges resides inside the dash with clear faces while just below the dash you'll find the registers for the (rarely optioned for a Cobra) aftermarket A/C! With the Factory Five wood grain steering wheel beckoning in front of you and the floor shifter sitting within very easy reach, you'll feel a definite urge to fire up the engine and put this nimble classic through its paces. Raise the lid in back and you'll see that while this is certainly no family commuter vehicle, there is some space in back for luggage, and the undented floor indicates that this replica hasn't run afoul of any unforeseen obstacles.
The drivetrain components have all been chosen and assembled with high-performance but reliable driving in mind. At the forefront is a 427-cubic inch Ford Racing crate engine, providing some very serious horsepower that, combined with this ride's light weight, makes for outstanding acceleration. It's outfitted with fuel-injection to provide confidence-inspiring starts in all kinds of weather, as well as a level of adjustability unattainable with carburetor-equipped engines. The big displacement powerplant is paired with a 5-speed manual overdrive transmission to provide low RPMs on the highway to accompany its off the line prowess, and a well-proportioned aluminum radiator sits up front to keep temperatures in check. Combine its low stance, relatively wide track and both front and rear independent suspension, and you end up with a car with skid pad abilities matched by very few others on the road. This high-powered American sports car sits on a set of 17" Halibrand wheels, wrapped with Nitto radials - including a pair of asphalt-grabbing 315s in back.
