Manufactured by Factory Five Racing. We have complete build book including the order form, brochure and receipts. Most people that own these enjoy an exhilarating ride on the streets although they are built to such high standards it can be competitive on the track. The brochure does a great job of explaining the level of quality that Factory Five puts into these cars. Only 6 originals were built by Shelby and are worth millions. These are refined versions of the originals at a fraction of the cost.
EXTERIOR: Hand laid composite body is very faithful to the original- same scoops, bulges, and shape. Original features include covered headlights, removable Lexan sliding windows, pop up gas cap, bullet mirrors and much more. It has the forward tilting hood. Reproduction 17 inch Halibrand sytle wheels have Kumho performance tires. Painted Eleanor colors- pepper gray with black metallic stripes. Smooth glossy finish, stripes are even smooth to the touch. It has a few chips on the nose. The stainless side exhaust will let your neighbors know you are home.
INTERIOR: The cockpit is lined with sound deadener and carpeted with bound edges. Racing style seats with 5 point racing harnesses keep you in place around the hairpin corners. In front of you is a matched set of easy to read gauges, quick release cushion grip wheel and a/c controls. Yes it has air, also upgraded with a very useful back up camera. It has a touch screen Kenwood stereo system. The Lokar automatic shifter is made to look like a manual. Overall excellent condition inside.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: New motor was brand new from GM, we have the receipt ($9,323). LS-3, 6.2 liter making 430 hp. LS-5 hot cam, Jet Hot coated headers, $450 ignition system, power steering, serpentine belt and pulley system, 1 wire alternator etc. It has a comprehensive cooling system. Fresh air enters through the front of the car, through a big aluminum radiator and out through a big opening in the hood. It has a large electric fan, custom made shroud, an aluminum expansion tank, aluminum airbox and overflow tank. My overall impression is this is a professionally put together engine compartment. All the components are modern, properly installed and clean. Nothing about it looks tacky or 2nd rate.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Rear window hatch opens up with gas struts. The carpeted trunk space looks like new.
UNDERSIDE: Very impressive tubular chassis has authentic design with modern technology. 4 inch tubular frame, 6 point roll cage, cockpit steel surround, racing footbed protection, skid plates, front and rear crumple zones. Refer to the picture from the brochure. The floors are laser cut aluminum panels. Independent front suspension with tubular control arms, Koni adjustable coil over gas shocks and rack & pinion steering. 3 link rear suspension has Koni coil over gas adjustable shocks and tubular control arms. Bottom of the motor is aluminum, has high torque starter and is hooked up to a 4L60 overdrive automatic trans. Professionally built and balanced driveshaft. Powder coated Ford 9 inch rear with Strange Engineering aluminum case, 31 spline traction lock and spool, S&W axle package, 3.70 gears. Wilwood brake system has slotted discs at all four wheels and an e-brake system. 6 piston calipers in front, 4 piston in back.
I drove it home, this car is exciting. You will be looking for "curves ahead" signs!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
