Car description

Very nice 1965 Factory Five Shelby Cobra. Car is an absolute beast with a 427W stroker from the Engine Factory that produces over 500HP. This car absolutely flies but is also easy to drive around town (but it's the most fun opened up on windy roads!). Factory Five is probably the most popular kit there is and very well respected. This car is a non-donor build and was built the idea to perform. It looks great with Mazda blue (so chips are easy to match) and white stripes blended in. The car never runs cool and get's looks wherever it goes. This car probably weighs in just over 2000lbs so when you figure the weight to HP ratio you really cannot beat these Cobras. And this one is even more impressive as it doesn't have just a 302 but instead boasts a 500+HP monster of an engine. This car rumbles and just rips with high HP while still being light in front for balanced performance. And with the aggressive Halibrand style wheels and low profile performance tires it holds the road (and gives it an amazing, aggressive stance). If you are looking for bang for your buck performance and a car that demands attention anywhere it goes this is the car for you. And there won't be a single car out there that will want to challenge this car at a stop light!

Let me know if you have any questions. The car is located in Buffalo, MN. I invite and encourage seeing and inspecting the car in person as it can probably sell itself better than I can. It's a good solid car that was built to run, perform, cruise and enjoy.
The car is being sold without any warranties stated or implied and is being sold as-is. I try to be as upfront and honest with the descriptions as possible but I do encourage people to come and see the car in person so they can make their own decisions on condition. Please only bid if you are truly interested in purchasing. Shipping is the buyers responsibility to set up and pay for.
