1965 Shelby 427 Cobra S/C Replica - Sale or Trade- Smog Exempt in CA

Location: Monterey, CA
Price: $48,000

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

SB-100 Smog Exempt in California.

NON Donor!!! All NEW parts were used to build. This car is far from your stock replica and not a donor build. Every area has been upgraded and modified for better performance. All parts are the best performance parts money can buy, so this is far above the usual FFR builds.

Car only has 2300 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 rear.
Tubular upper and lower control arms.
Brakes are 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 brake 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.
Cobra logo valve stem caps.
All bolts are either Grade 8 or Stainless Steel
Upgraded side pipe mounts

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.
Eagle stoker kit.
Comp roller cam, roller rockers and chain.
Comp lifters.
Eagle Forged pitons.
Super Cooler high volume water pump.
Melling high volume oil pump.
Holly high volume fuel pump.
Dual fuel filters. One rear canister and one inline aluminum racing filter at carb.
Canton 9.5 qt. baffled racing pan.
Oil filter relocator.
Oil Thermostat.
Original type Mocal oil cooler.
Headers and side pipes are ceramic coated.
Edlebrock Victor Jr. Heads and intake manifold.
March polished aluminum serpentine pulleys.
All fuel, oil and brake lines are braided stainless steel with AN fittings.
Polished one wire alternator.
Front mount Optima battery.
Has over size aluminum radiator with a high volume electric cooling fan.
Polished aluminum over flow canister.
Cobra logo aluminum valve covers and air cleaner.
Holly 4150 750 cfm double pumper racing carb with pressure gauge.
MSD 6 al ignition.
MSD Distributor.
Msd coil.

Interior has been upgraded to better carpet.
Leather seats
Seat Heaters.
5 point Simpson seat belt harness.
Herbs finished door panels with pockets,
Fully lined cockpit with Second Skin sound and heat insulation.
A custom console with vent and heated seat controls and a glove box that is lockable.
Gauges are Autometer Sport Comp II electronic gauges.
Trunk is carpeted with a hidden storage compartment.
Ray dot Side mirror.
Custom grab bar
Hidden roll bar mount.
Roll bar and quick jacks are powder coated.
Upgraded Finish Line side vents.
Russ Thompson polished aluminum roll bar trim rings and seat belt trim rings.
Upgraded polished aluminum brake handle and trim ring.
Aluminum racing pedals.
Wind wings and visors.
Russ Thompson Aluminum turn signal arm with bright switch.
Aluminum light switch.
Cigarette lighter/power socket.
Cobra Logo floor mats.

Painted by Ken Pike AKA Street Rod Painter (SRP).
It is Kens # 3 package.

The package includes:

Rolled cockpit edges.
Hidden body mounts.
Hidden trunk hinges.
Extended deck under hood scoop.
Custom heavy duty hood hinges with pneumatic pistons.
Rolled fender edges.
Clear Spats to protect paint on rear fender.

I also have a very nice 16 enclosed car trailer that would be available to buyer at additional cost.

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

A custom fitted Bra.

Extra pair of uncoated side pipes

Extra Chrome Roll Bar

Extra Carb and MSD 6 AL ignition box

It is wired for windshield wipers and I have all the parts for them if new owner decides to install them.

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

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 years of time to build it. I am open to reasonable offers, full or partial trades. Serious only! No low ballers.

Asking $48,000

I am also willing to trade for an equivalent value 72 or older car with an automatic trans or a lesser value 72 or older car and some cash. I am only selling for health reasons and do not need to sell in a hurry. Cars I would be interested in for a full or partial traded MUST be Automatic Trans with floor shift and V8 engine and have original looking body and interior. I am looking for as stock a car as possible.
