The Carroll Shelby name is no secret in the world of car enthusiasts. He has a lengthy list of vehicles that had roles in their development. Some more famous than others and there is few that would disagree that the Cobra of 1965 is the most prominent of all his creations. The Shelby Cobra/Daytona was commissioned, built and driven to do one thing – beat Ferrari in the 24hrs of Lemans. After the huge success the Cobra was rolled out and continued to receive significant praises for its power and style. Fast forward to present times and people were disappointed with the sports cars that were rolling out of the factories and the lack of excitement and performance they offered. Entering the market were a handful of companies building replicas or recreations of famous cars from the past. One of the most popular was the Shelby Cobra of the 60's and the company Factory Five Racing opened up their shop in 1995 to build models that would be sought after and desired for their quality, craftsmanship and performance.

We are pleased to present this gorgeous 1965 Shelby Cobra by Factory Five. This MK3 build remains in excellent condition after being driven just 2632 miles since the build completion. The is powered by a professional prepared 351 Windsor that has been bored and stroked to 410 CID and sounds amazing. The transmission is a Tremec 5 Speed and the car features Wilwood brakes at all 4 corners. Other highlights included classic style seats, bent shifter, Autometer gauges, wind wings, Halidbrand style wheels, adjustable coil over suspension, 4 point harnesses, powder coated jack hooks, aluminum radiator, nodular style rear end and Factory Five's signature fat round tube chassis. The car is finished in Classic Lemans Blue exterior paint with white stripes over black interior. The performance of this car is amazing as it absolutely roars through the gears all while remaining glued to the pavement by its coil over suspension setup and the 4 wheel disc brakes stop the car straight and true.

Well executed Factory 5 Cobras such as the one here, capture the essence of the Carroll Shelby spirit as each one can be set up to ones tastes. These cars remain on the bucket list of many and with authentic examples selling upwards of a million dollars, these tribute cars remain in high demand and hold value. This example as turn key and ready for its next owner.
