Lot #477 - This iconic Shelby Cobra Daytona coupe re-creation was a labor of love and a very high quality build. No expense was spared, over 3,000 hours and $77,875.96 in parts receipts. No detail was overlooked, no donor parts were used and no shortcuts were taken using all new and the highest quality parts directly from Ford Racing. Professionally built, engineered and assembled using the renowned Factory Five Racing body and chassis. The outstanding exterior finish complements the high level of detail throughout.

Grade 8 fasteners have been used throughout its construction. This Cobra Daytona is powered by a Ford Racing 347cid short block. Nothing but premium parts were used. Matted to the engine is a TKO 5-speed with Hurst shifter and a King Cobra R clutch assembly. The rear end is an 8.8" Ford with a 3.55 gear ratio and Moser 28-spline hardened rear axles were added to handle the power. The rear suspension is a 3-bar setup for better handling and the front suspension has tubular upper and lower control arms. ECSTA XS tires are used for the ultimate in street handling and grip.
