Car description

With serious big block performance, a five-speed manual, and a fully independent suspension, this is one heck of a buy in the Cobra community. So we don't have to explain any further why you want this 1965 Shelby Superformance Cobra, but we are going to go through all the details so you know this one is even better than you expected.
You already know that Superformance is the gold standard in the Cobra business, and building one from scratch isn't a bad idea. But if you're the anxious type, or someone who doesn't feel like investing a small fortune in a custom build, then this turn-key ready car is right up your alley. It's a complete and straight roadster finished in a metallic blue that looks great on this American racing legend. Mixed in with that great paint is a set of white stripes. After all, a Cobra without racing lines just isn't right, and we love how the white also coordinates with the coated side exhaust. Details like tall driver roll hoop, flip-up gas cap, and push bumpers not only add serious flair, but also suggest that it was built for combat. Nothing says race-ready like Halibrand style wheels with proper knock-off hubs.
The interior absolutely gets the Shelby attitude right. It starts with wrap-around buckets finished in a premium leather. Plus, there are racing seatbelts and a fire extinguisher on the rear panel. You'll love the grippy three spoke sports steering wheel and a performance shifter that fits the driver perfectly. The full Smiths gauge package is AC Cobra correct, right down to the reverse position speedometer. If you do get caught in the rain, the full folding top and side curtains are a great friend to get you home. There's no radio, no power windows, no A/C this is a competition machine that's all about the driving experience and nothing else needs to get in the way.
Filling the engine bay is big bold Ford power and it says so right on the bright valve covers. It's a huge 460 cubic-inch V8. So having big block power and monster torque under the hood is already a distinction that's worth this price alone. But more than just displacement, it has all the right performance upgrades such as a Holley double pumper four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, electric fan, and headers that feed those rumbling side pipes. This V8 does a great job of moving the lightweight fiberglass body, and you can stay in the power band with ease thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Of course, all this superior power is nothing without control. That's why this Cobra comes with a fully independent suspension with adjustable coil overs at each corner. It's backed up by thick sway bars and a four-wheel disc brake package.
The sale comes complete with everything you need, including owner's manual and car cover. This is the Cobra that's not only more powerful than many others, but also the fun doesn't end when the road adds a few curves. So don't let this all-around stunner get away. Call now!
