1965 Shelby 427 Cobra S/C Replica - Sale or Trade

Location: Monterey
Price: 50,000

1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C replica by Factory Five Racing.

SB100 Smog Exempt in California.

All NEW parts were used to build. This car is far from your stock replica and not a donor build. Virtually every area has been upgraded and modified for better performance. Car only has 1300 miles on it.

The chassis has lowered and extended foot boxes on both sides.
Cobra Earls Powered Vent Kit on Both sides.
The Steering rack is a Flaming River Rack and Pinion.
Four wheel adjustable coil over Koni shocks.
Fully adjustable heavy duty racing sway bars front and back.
Tubular upper and lower control arms.
Brakes are Cobra R four wheel disc with 13" slotted and drilled Rotors in front with 4 piston Cobra logo calipers and same type 11.75" rotors and Calipers in the rear.
All stainless steel lines.
The rear end is a 8.8 Independent Rear Suspension with 3:73 gearing.(I also have a spare center section in case different gearing is desired).
Team III Halibrand Replica 17" wheels with spinners and lug nut covers
Nitto tires.

Tremec TKO 3550 5 speed with mid shift Kit.
Hurst shifter.
Wooden gearshift knob with Cobra logo.
Quicktime Scattershield Steel Bell Housing.
Heavy duty racing clutch and pressure plate.

Engine is a 408 Stroker putting out 530 H.P. at the flywheel and 430 H.P. at the wheels. It gives you the torque, speed, and sound of a big block with the handling characteristics of a small block.

The engine was custom built with the best parts.

Comp roller cam, roller rockers and chain.
Comp lifters.
Eagle Forged pitons.

The color is a one of a kind custom mix blue with white stripes painted by Ken Pike AKA Street Rod Painter (SRP).
It is Kens # 3 package with the addition of his custom heavy duty hood hinge kit with pistons and rolled fender edges.

The package includes:
Rolled cockpit edges.
Hidden body mounts.
Extended deck under hood scoop.

This Cobra Replica is one of the best one's out there. There are many more upgrades not mentioned. There are receipts for 53K which does not include the 5 years of time to build it. I am open to reasonable offers or trades. Serious only! No low ballers.

I also have a very nice enlosed car trailer that would be available to buyer at additional cost.

This car is built for one thing, and that is to go fast and handle well and it does that better then most cars on the road.

I also have front and rear bumper hoops and over riders if you want to change the look.

A fitted Bra.

Extra pair of uncoated side pipes

It is currently setup to look like a race car, but all that would need to be purchased is a chrome roll bar and mount the bumpers and hoops that I already have and coat the spare side pipes silver and you have a show car.

I would like to get as close to $50K as possible but am open to offers. I am also willing to trade for an equivilent value 72 or older car with an automatic trans or a lesser value 72 or older car and some cash. Most will say that you can buy an FFR for much less and that is true. Just not like this one. I might even trade for another Cobra or replica with an Auto trans if it is also SB100 smog exempt.

Muscle Cars I would be interested in trading for are cars with Automatic trans, two doors, bucket seats, floor shifter with unmodified interior or body. Cars like Mustang, GTO, Challenger, Cuda, Charger, Road Runner, Camero, Corvette, Etc. I like original looking muscle cars. Modified older Hot Rods are also ok. I prefer big block engines, but not required. I am not interested in any car with a bench seat or column shifter.
