Cobra 1965

Title Status --
Exterior Color Copper
Interior Color Tan


This 1965 Shelby Cobra is a bolt of orange lightning channeling the spirit of Ken Miles with its blend of vintage racer and modern street machine. With a stunning copper paint job accented by cream and silver stripes, fat tires tucked under those bulging fenders, and dual roll bars, this backdraft has a look of its own. The perfect finishing touches are those simulated knock-off wheels and the billet gas cap. It\'s a Cobra that stands out from the crowd and will grab some attention in the following cars and coffee!

Slip inside, and the tan leather seats beg you to go for a cruise. Settle into the buckets with their racing harnesses holding you snug, wrap your hand around that floor shifter (angled just right, like a real Cobra should be!), and fire it up. The Speedo might be reversed for a little race-day flair, but otherwise, it\'s a pure, comfortable sports car here. Keep an eye out for the fuel pump and fan switches tucked away just a quick flick puts everything at your fingertips.

Speaking of fire, this Cobra doesn\'t mess around. It\'s got a Ford 392 stroker V8 growling through those side pipes that\'s way more punch than the originals ever had! That 5-speed manual transmission lets you row through the gears, backed by a 3.46 limited-slip rear axle for serious grip. Coilovers up front and a trailing arm suspension in the rear will handle modern roads without sacrificing that classic Cobra feel. And when you need to slow down, power disc brakes get the job done. With long tube manifolds feeding those side pipes, this Cobra isn\'t just about looks - it\'ll deliver thrills on any backroad.
