Cobra 1965

Title Status --
Exterior Color Tangelo Pearl
Interior Color Black


A powerful fuel-injected V8, five-speed stick, and growling side pipes all make this 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five a speed machine. And the extra touches of bold style let you know that the appeal of this one is more than just its value price.

Tangelo Pearl gets this Cobra noticed. In fact, we're surprised the name of the paint isn't Nuclear Orange for the way it looks like this could glow in the dark. There's even a metallic element to make sure this one radiates even more in the sunlight. It makes for a bold background to ally the black and gray over-the-top stripe package. The full finish looks quite stylish while also never shying away from a track day. There's plenty more shine from the brightwork pieces, and at the same time, they remind you of the competition history of these cars. You see it in the roll hoop, push bumpers, and growling side pipes. And a set of Cobra R-style polished wheels means you add to the shine while getting to fit proper performance tires. So it's a full package that is both bright and mean, and it's finished with the quality you expect from a Factory Five car.

The interior gives you a nice mix of vintage and new. You still have classic Cobra elements, like the low-back bucket seats and toggle switches on the dash, but there are also the right updates to the theme. There are proper racing harnesses, an upgraded shifter, and a leather-wrapped Factory Five steering wheel. And the dash is now a carbon fiber unit filled with crisp and modern AutoMeter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges.

The Cobras were born from Ford's small block program, and so it's great to have a 302 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. But one look and you also know this is a lot more powerful than stock. It's said to be bored to 306ci, as well as powerful upgrades like 24lb injectors, an E-cam, roller rockers, and 1.6 pushrods. There's a Trick Flow package that includes aluminum heads and the upper and lower for the fuel injection. A 70MM throttle body, new belts, braided lines, and headers feeding those side pipes complete a powerful setup. In fact, it's estimated to be producing 400 horsepower. You have complete control over the full power package thanks to a five-speed manual transmission and a King Cobra clutch. Disc brakes up front, traction bars in the rear, and grippy ZR-rated tires at each corner give you the right nimble Cobra experience.

This Cobra is a solid all-around performer with some seriously bold style. Don't miss this sleek Factory Five. Call today!!!
