Perhaps no other American manufacturer gained more international recognition than Carrol Shelby. His thirst for performance and the victory circle has made him a household name in all aspects of motorsports. The A/C Cobra is Shelby's crowning achievement. Large horsepower integrated with a lightweight tubular chassis and sexy hand built aluminum body, With a partnership of AC Motorcars and Ford, Shelby's AC 427 Cobra thundered onto the scene in 1965 offering a big block, high horse power edition over the already popular 289 small block version that came on scene two years prior. To this day, the look, sound, power and feel of the Cobra remains on the bucket list of many motoring enthusiasts and long before original examples far began exceeding 7 figures in value, independent manufacturing companies and talented performance car builders began building replica versions of the famed Cobra.
The 1965 Shelby Cobra offered here is a high-quality build on a professionally assembled preferred square tube chassis. The car is powered by a performance prepared and stroked 427 motor bed by a Holly dual feed carburetor via an aluminum high riser intake. Other engine highlights include: Edelbrock aluminum heads, Cannon dry sump, aluminum expansion tank, billet aluminum water pump, polished pulleys, MSD ignition and headers exiting through its side exhaust. This most excellent performance is transferred to the rear wheels via a Tremec 5 Speed transmission, Ford 9 inch rear end with solid axel. Keeping all this performance pointed in the right direction is rack and pinion steering, adjustable coil over suspension at all 4 corners, Himes joint connecting rods with classic 3 link rear suspension. The interior is fully trimmed with full carpet kit, cobra style seats with Simpson 3 point harnesses, Grant GT steering wheel, roll hoop, padded dash and dash fascia, glove box, VDO gauges, Tilton billet aluminum brake and clutch pedal and a trick vintage Moon billet aluminum accelerator pedal. The body is detailed to vintage cobra spec, and highly finished in black exterior paint with classic silver stripes.
Huge attention to detail was executed in the build of this car, and with over 9000 miles on the odometer, you can be assured that this Cobra is fully sorted and to perform for you. Other highlights include: All braided fuel, coolant and brake lines with A/N fittings integrated with solid connections where appropriate, heat wrapped headers, heat fabric on the firewall and foot boxes and signature Halibrand style wheels.

With a style and sound unlike any other vehicle on the toad, the Shelby Cobra has become an American Icon. High quality examples such as this remain in high demand.
