Description for Shelby Cobra Factory Five Mk4 1965

A quicksilver appearance, legendary presence, and brute speed from the stroker V8 is exactly what has you thinking about this 1965 Shelby Cobra Factory Five Mk4. So dig in for the details, because it only gets better.
The paint instantly makes this one a shining star. The bright silver with gray metallic painted stripe package is a modern hue interpretation of an iconic application. Speaking of iconic, the Cobra shape is one of the most enduring sports car profiles in history. That's why you should be glad this is a solid Factory Five car. They're quality bodies mixed with the nice investment in paintwork means you have a package where the light rolls evenly across each panel and draws attention to the iconic flared fender appearance. Bright work is matter of function on these cars, and so the bumpers, race gas cap, hood locks, and side pipes are all part of the performance nature. Plus, the roll hoop was painted a body-matching for a touch of distinction that Cobra people will recognize. But the part that we like the most are the 17-inch Halibrand-style wheels. Not only do they have the classic knock-off appearance, but these icons extremely well into the whole multiple shade of sliver package on this coordinated build.
With less than 5,800 miles on the whole car, the interior remains looking deep, dark, and terrific. You get all the best performance pieces you expect from a Cobra, including the supple leather bucket seats with four-point Simpson harnesses. The gear stick is correctly angled forward for better driver comfort, and we all love the look of a classic wood and chrome steering wheel. Beyond that is a full set of gauges, including the speedo that is correctly reversed just like Carroll Shelby first made on his competition cars. And that's the whole spirit of this one no radio, no heater, or any other component that adds unnecessary weight and drains performance.
You know this is a speed machine from the moment you look under the hood. Those bold Cobra valve covers announce the wicked nature of this 347 cubic-inch stroker V8. Low mileage and good maintenance means this crate motor still looks terrific. It has been built with all forged internals to be ready to take on the track. Plus, you can easily spot upgrades like the big Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, MSD ignition, heavy duty hoses, and aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The full package is estimated by the consignor at 425 horsepower, and you better believe the rumble of the side pipes lets everyone know there is some serious power here. Best of all, you are in complete control of this wicked V8 and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the Tremec T56 five-speed manual transmission. All four wheels have adjustable coilovers, disc brakes, and grippy Kumho Ecsta XS tires, so no matter if you're enjoying the streets or attack a track day, this one has your control firmly in-hand.
Complete with a comprehensive build receipt from 2012, you're looking at a slick and quick machine that knows how to grab attention. So if you like your Cobras on the wild side, call today!
