Car description

A 1965 Shelby Cobra is always a great way to have hardcore sports car fun in an iconic shape. But when that Cobra also has Ford's modern modular V8 under the hood, the result is irresistible. This was a car that was built by an enthusiast who knew how to respect the Cobra's history, while still standing out from the crowd. After all, deep blue paint with the full-length double-stripe package is part of what makes this car iconic. But when you look beyond the high-gloss finish, you begin to see some differences. For example, competition elements like the roll hoop, as well as the quick jack bumpers on the front & rear, are all in a high gloss black instead of chromed on most other cars. It just gives this one a bit of a more menacing presence on the street or track. Even the large 17-inch torque thrust alloys have a satin finish to reflect this Cobra's darker attitude.Inside is more of the dark appearance with the classic low-back sports bucket seats finished in a nice black leather. And with less than 1,000 miles on this build, there has been very little seat time to even make a crease. The traditional Cobra appearance continues with racing seatbelts, a forward curved gearshift, and wood-rimmed steering wheel with Carroll Shelby's snake prominently in the center. For the driver, this feels like a pure performance machine right down to the full array of Auto Meter gauges and the fire extinguisher on the transmission tunnel. This brings you back to all the great elements of the true driving spirit, and so your favorite soundtrack will always be the rumble of the side pipes that exit just blow your low-cut door.Under the hood is a Ford legend, but a much more recent one than you find in most Cobras. It's the 4.6-liter modular V8 that has been a favorite for some of the most recent Mustangs and you even see the proof with the pony on the intake! This fuel-injected motor is already a screamer, and it has a great presentation. But like any good Ford V8, it's also been overbuilt so that it can accept modifications in the future, and that's the fun of owning a Cobra like this. It has been built with a strong chassis, and a stout T5 five-speed manual transmission, so it can be a blast this weekend, and always ready for whatever you want in the future. With an independent A-arm front suspension, coilspring rear, and four-wheel disc brakes, you have the confidence to always find your racing line.A beautiful and distinctive Cobra with few miles on the clock, modern power, and a great price. It's a total package that you know will be leaving us soon, so don't wait, call today!
