Lot #48 1965 FACTORY FIVE SHELBY COBRA RE-CREATION ROADSTER
Lot #48 - Completed in 2007, this car was built to do it all. Stand out at shows, run at the track or drive it to work in traffic every day. Based on the Factory Five Mark III kit with powder-coated frame. Uses a 1997 4.6L DOHC 4 valve donor engine with 340hp. Powerful, fuel injected and it starts on the first try every single time. Has cats but is 1965 registered and emission exempt. New stainless steel exhaust. Has the bullet proof T-45 5-speed manual transmission. 8.8 limited slip solid rear axle. Coilovers all around. It has the Canton windage oil pan upgrade to protect the engine for hard driving on track days. Power rack & pinion steering. Power brakes with 13" vented front and 11.65" vented rear disc brakes. 17" Bullit wheels with big 315's on the back. Professional body work was required for the satin black urethane paint. It is durable and looks awesome. Subtle hand-painted cherry red double rookie stripe on left front fender with airbrushed skulls and snakes makes everyone take a second look. Chrome accents everywhere, roll bar, quick jacks, mirrors, fire extinguisher and more. Hidden trunk hinges for a clean look and reliable operation. Converted doors to bear-claw latches for a solid feel. It has the traditional leather seats, leather dash and custom door panels. Drive with safe Simpson 4-point belts. The driver's seat is adjustable. Original style Smith gauges with reversed speedo are spot-on accurate. This car is easy to drive every day, but fast enough to thrill you on demand. Meticulously constructed with all receipts and hundreds of photos from build. This is a carefree classic that you will enjoy for years.
