Lot #731 - This car is a one-of-a-kind Factory Five kit car. It's a 1965 Shelby Cobra re-creation. The frame has been powdercoated dark grey metallic and all sheet metal has been powdercoated satin black. The many high performance upgrades include a 351 Windsor stroker motor that has been dyno-tuned at 400hp and 400ft/lb of torque. Edelbrock heads and intake, a Holley 750 carburetor, and Hooker headers along with MSD ignition help make that power. It has a custom-built all aluminum Ron Davis radiator with dual electric fans. The Odyssey battery is mounted in the trunk with the MSD box. It has a heavy duty Ford T-5 transmission and a Ford 8.8" posi-traction end. The front suspension has Billet aluminum lower control arms, adjustable upper control arms and Koni double adjustable coilover shocks. The rear suspension has an adjustable 5-link watts system with Koni adjustable coilover shocks. The front brakes are Billet aluminum Wilwood 6-piston calipers with cross-drilled vented two piece rotors. The rear brakes are Billet aluminum Wilwood 4-piston calipers with drum style e-brake inside the rear rotors. The interior includes a fully custom stainless steel dash with Auto meter Cobalt gauges, LED indicator lights, custom aluminum bezels, bass control knob and LED accent lighting controls. The steering wheel is removable and it has custom seats and safety harnesses. The shifter is accented with LED lighting and a custom stainless steel shifter ring that matches the trim around the bass port at the rear of the cockpit. It has black marine grade carpet as well as black marine grade vinyl with pearl white tribal designs. The 7-speaker stereo system consists of all JL Audio components that includes a 10" subwoofer in the trunk with an Alpine head unit, all equaling out to 600 watts. The paint is a custom three stage paint job with bright Diamond White as the base, Lazuli Blue Pearl as the mid coat and it has all been buried by 4 coats of clear. Custom laser-cut grilles mounted on the front of the car gives it one of its many one-of-a-kind features. The car sits on 17" polished aluminum wheels with 295 wide Falcon high performance tires on the front and 315 wide Nitto 555 Drag radials on the back. This car was built in Arizona and was finished in March of 2008 and has less then 500 miles on build.
