To begin. there is a BUY IT NOW price on this RARE car that may or may not appear on the main screen. The price will be good for the entire sale up until the last 12 hours. after which eBay will not allow me to end the auction. To be fair. you should know that ALMOST ALL of my cars sell with the BUY IT NOW option so don't wait until the last minute to bid as it may not be available by then. The BUY IT NOW on this car is $31. 00. 00 and that INCLUDES free delivery to anywhere in the continental USA. I will also discount that price by $1000. 00 if you want to come and pick it up. Sorry but I cannot include Alaska and Hawaii in free delivery. I may be able to include some parts of lower Canada. Please see details below on delivery. If you want to use the BUY IT NOW feature. all you have to do is contact me (call 270-577-1821) and we can work it out and I will end the auction. Please understand that the free delivery is ONLY with the Buy It Now option. If you make an offer of less. and I accept it. you will not qualify for the delivery unless we have agreed to it in advance of the end of the sale. I want to restate that about 90% of the vehicles I list sell before the end of the auction. If you want it. call me. Don't be upset if you try to wait it out and it's gone! Now let's get to the details on the car!
DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE LOW PRICE. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY FLAWESS COBRA THAT NEEDS NOTHING! AS MENTIONED BELOW. THIS CAR WAS BUILT BY THE FACTORY FIVE SHOP AND IT IS OBVIOUS WHEN YOU SEE THE UNDERSIDE. IT IS PRICED LOW BECAUSE I GOT A GOOD DEAL ON IT AND FOR NO OTHER REAON. NO ONE. EVEN THE MOST PICKY. WILL HAVE ANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE CAR. IT IS CRAZY POWERFUL AND SHOW READY!! As an offer of extra security to distant bidders. I want to make it plain that we are not in the business of misrepresenting our cars like some folks do. I try to list every single thing that there is to know about the car. I am human and can miss something but I do personally inspect. drive and check-out each and every car that I put on eBay. If there is ANY problem that I can find. it will be listed. It will also be address. when possible. If you buy the car and make the required deposit. when you come to get the car. if there is an issue that I was not aware of. you will have the option to walk away and get every cent of your deposit back. Now we cannot be responsible for your transportation cost but we are not EVER going to keep a deposit if the car is not right. This does not cover items that are mentioned in the description or that should be plainly visible or for silly things like you or the wife do not like the paint color or the way the seats "feel". But it is intended for items that may have been missed that have a serious impact on the car's value or function. We will do our best to correct anything that we did not notice or we will refund the deposit. If you are having the car delivered. nbsp;different circumstances apply but that is covered below.  How many times have you. like me. sat and watched the latest Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction and said to yourself. Man! I wish I could have one of those cars! Well. here is your chance.   This is one of the nicest Cobras listed on eBay and the most affordable. This car is totally complete and needs nothing. It runs and drives like a new car. A new race car that is. It is crazy powerful and your friends will never be able to top that! This auction is for a excellent 1965 Shelby Cobra. replica. of course. nbsp;with the highly desirable 5. 0 small block and a 4 speed manual transmission!!. The car is built from a Factory Five Racing kit. which is a MKIV (4) model. This beautiful car only has 3. 27 actual miles! It has been completely built and is a very nice example of the model. It won numerous awards across the country at regional shows and is ready to be shown in your area. This car has traveled the country by trailer. including many Florida and Arizona shows. The known details of the modifications are listed below.
A special feature is that this car is hand signed by Jack Roush in gold near the glove box. as seen in the last photo. The white Carroll Shelby signature is a replica but the Roush is real and was done at a show where Roush examined the car! The exterior of this classic is actually much better than new. It is a blazingly bright yellow and the paint and body are in excellent condition with no issues at all. There is absolutely no damage anywhere on the entire car. The paint is great with a very high gloss and no problems. NO dents. nicks. major paint issues. dull spots. runs. nbsp;over spray or other issues. This was a professional build done with no expense spared. There is no evidence of ever having previous damage. It is the V8 roadster model and the car has all the correct emblems attached. It is also the VERY RARE black vinyl top. not shown in the photos. I have had 10 or more Cobras and this is the only one to have a top. All of the emblems are in perfect shape. The chrome has all been professionally plated and all arts are top quality NOS style items. The car also has new rubber seals throughout. The door. hood and trunk jambs are in great shape and I have extra photos of them. if you need them. This car is a to quality V8 roadster and not some made-from-extra-parts car. The floors are great and the trunk is perfect. The trunk is fully done in stainless steel.  I also have photos of those. I can only put 24 pics on eBay so if you want more. I will have to send them to you. The car has perfect condition . and brand new Cobra custom chrome wheels with new Kumho low profile  black letter tires. both of which give it a great look.   I have found absolutely no issues with the car at all.   I did drive it extensively to see how it was before listing it. It was great! Started easily. ran strong and handled wonderfully.   I want to emphasis that this car is NOT some hack job like you sometimes find on here. This is about as nice a Shelby Cobra that you will find unless you spend $75. 0. 00 on the kit and all parts. But even then. you still have to build it yourself or pay to have it built.   Again. I have many photos that I can send and will take others if you need them. THe ar comes with a clean North Carolina title showing a 2002 custom with a new VIN issued when it was titled originally. Please note. Like ALL kit cars. the title will show "reconstructed". Not because of damage but because the car is no longer what it originally was. The exterior also has locking trunk and hood latches. which is also unusual. It has a slightly tinted tempered GLASS windshield. not the cheap plexiglass that some have. The chrome roll bar is correctly mounted to the frame for safety. as it is supposed to be.
On to the interior. This one has the totally cool black vinyl interior that is in absolutely perfect! It is the exact style interior that matches the original Cobras.   We have had numerous classic Cobras over the last few years and this is the same interior that they all have. as modeled from the real ones. The door panels are made to match the seats. It has the correct style leather door stop straps. the overhead visors and the side curtain wings.  The new dash is great with no wear. cracks or fade. It has perfect shape and has not bent like so many of them do in the center.  This car has the full-length. low slung shifter. as seen in the photos. The black carpet is original style and is in great shape. Some of the photos may show the carpet to appear faded but that is not the case. It is just the camera flash glaring. The carpet is in new condition and pitch black.  Correct manual windows and locks. They all work. as well.  The door panels are also in brand new conditon in original style and are also in the photos. The interior is in GREAT condition! It has Simpson 6 point race harnesses to keep the driver and passenger safe.  The full set of vintage Cobra style Classic Instruments gauges in the dash so that you can monitor all of the engines activities. There are gauges for coolant temp. oil temp. oil pressure. volts and fuel. The large gauges are tachometer and speedometer. ALL GUAUGES WORK AS THEY SHOULD!  The interior on this car is one of the things that makes it special. It is a beautiful design with comfortable seats and a great appearance.  Before getting into the mechanics. I do want to add that when I drove this car. I was STUNNED at how well it ran. This car runs. idles. drives and feels like a modern car with fuel injection. It is so smooth when running you sometimes wonder if it is still running at all. If it were not for being able to hear the exhaust. I would have sworn that the car had died. It is just that smooth. The car just purrs! There is NO hesitation on take-off. no sputtering or dead spots on the timing or acceleration. I don't mean to beat it into the ground but I want to make sure I get the point across as to how well this car runs. I have driven 1000's of vintage cars and this one runs better than every single one of them without exception! But I guess I should mention the ridicules amount of power the car has. There is so much torque that it is difficult to take off in first gear. I usually use second. Otherwise. it's hard not to have to dump the gas and spin the tires in first. It's definitely built to run fast. and it does!

And now for the mechanics. This car has enough power to scare the hell out of all of your friends! It is a 5. 0. 301. 6 ci small block from a donor car of a 1988 Mustang GT HO with modifications and it is connected to a T-5 5 speed manual transmission.  Both have been rebuilt and both operate EXTREMELY WELL! It is injected with a high output injection system that matches well to the car. The injection manifold show "Cobra HO" and it looks great with thi engine. The engine and engine compartment are completed in the same quality as the rest of the car. It has a functioning cowl hood with the opening for the breather under the hood. As standard with ONLY Factory Five Racing models. there are hydraulic hood lifts and under hood reinforcement metal surrounds. as seen in the photos. It has powder coated headers that lead to stainless steel dual side pipes chrome tips.  There is a great sounding rumble to it. It is not too loud but gets the proper attention. Again. I have numerous other photos. The car does not have power steering and it does not need it due to the light weight of the fiberglass body. It does have power brakes with discs in the front and drums in the rear. The engine runs cool. has great oil pressure and no internal noise. The trans shifts well and grabs as it should. Again. this car only has 3. 27 actual miles.  The engine runs like it is brand new and of course. there are no leaks or problems of any kind. It has a high capacity electric cooling fan that can be ran automatically or manually by a switch. The car is beautiful and ready for you to enjoy as a showpiece or investment!

 A special note. The car is currently located in my garage in  Cape Coral. Florida. If you use the Buy It Now and want delivery. this does not matter to you. If you plan to come pick it up. please factor this in! I could take it to our dealership in Henderson Kentucky if we work out something that is fair. Please call me at 270-577-1821 with any question at all. any time of day. 24 hours.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Questions and answers: Let me cover a few questions that I am sure I will get 100 times while this auction is running. Also. please check the eBay question and answer section below the photos to see if your question has already been covered.   * Will you trade for my . (fill in the blank)? You are welcome to e-mail what you have but a few things to keep in mind. I am a dealer. I am not going to trade you even unless you are offering something that is beyond belief. We are likely well away from where you are. If you have something to offer. it will have to be seen in person and that makes it difficult. I will need detailed photos just to give it thought. I am not interested in snowmobiles. jetskis. nbsp;john boats. bass boats. ex-wives (or current ones!). or ANY type of project vehicle. I will consider items such as sports cars. large boats or items that are sellable quickly. I do not have time or the ability to deal with anything that I will have to put much effort into.  * Does this car have airbags and seatbelts?                     Yes to seatbelts and no to airbags. It does have racing harnesses for seatbelts (and all that is required) and but no airbags (SRS) (it was not made with any) and is not required to in any state. due to the age of the car.         * Will this car pass emissions in my state?                         I have no idea. I am in Kentucky and Florida and we have no emissions testing here. I have no way to test it for any state and I have no idea what your state requires. Some states make exceptions for antiques. It is 100% up to you to check on these items for yourself. If you buy the car. you buy the car. It will be your responsibilty to make it meet whatever requirements your state has. There may be no changes that need to be made since it is an antique but keep in mind that you will not be allowed to back out of the sale should you not put any effort into finding out BEFORE you bid. Please refer to the last paragraph that covers non-payment. I don't mean to sound like a jerk here but the last time I failed to mention this I had an idiot in California complaining that their 1978 VW Beetle convertible did not have a catalytic converter on it! They were not made with converters in 1978 and there is NOTHING I can do about it.   * Will you ship internationally? Yes. I will but it is your responsibility to find out the costs.  I am happy to help make the arrangements and have shipped numerous cars internationally. If you use the Buy It Now. or pay extra for me to do it. I will get it to a shipping port. Please understand that a price a shipper gives you is from a port city. We are not on the ocean and the car will have to be transported to the port. That will be extra. I WILL NOT accept money orders. cashier's checks or any other check for international shipping. Payment will be made by a bank wire transfer and by no other means. except in some cases with Canada. I WILL NOT accept anything but the deposit through Paypal as their fees are too high to process large amounts through.  * Will this be a good car for my teen-aged son/daughter? They really like it and want me to buy it for them.  This simplest answer to this is that you would be an idiot to buy a car like this for a teenaged driver. Not only is it too expensive to put a young person in. it is WAY to powerful and would just be plain dangerous. This is a classic vehicle and young people need to be only passengers in it. They DO NOT have the experience required to control this car. and yes. that includes your child. I don't mean to sound like an ass but I am stunned at the number of adults who write or call me when I run a car like this and want to put a teenager in. Young drivers have no idea what is involved in caring for a car like this nor the amount of money needed to keep it nice. Parents should use their heads and put junior in a Honda or Toyota and leave cars like this to experienced owners and drivers. Again. DO NOT buy this car for a young person! The car is up to par but. to be direct. your teenager is NOT!  * Do you have any documentation on this car? Lots!. This car comes with full documentation. That includes the original kit paperwork. instructions. research papers. the build sheet showing every part needed and bought. unused Carroll Shelby stickers and bio. histroy of the Factory Five Racing company and the owner's manual.  I have numerous photos of the underside of this car and many of other sections. I will be more than happy to send them to you but you will have to send me your direct e-mail address. I cannot send photos through the eBay mail system as they will not allow it. Below covers delivery and shipping options as well as ways to contact me directly should you want to discuss anything at all.  _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A little about us. We are a mid-sized dealership in Western Kentucky (but the car is at y home in South West Florida) that specializes in only sports and luxury cars and specialty trucks. We don't sell minivans and station wagons. We have indoor storage for Porsches. Corvettes. Lotus. Ferrari. ect. We sell only top of the line cars and never list one on eBay that we know has a problem. As with all things mechanical. things break down and we will always do anything within reason to assist after the sale. This does not imply that we provide a lifetime warranty on your car! All cars are sold as is unless I specifically say there is a factory warranty on them. Should you have a problem any time in the future. even 10 years from now. we will do all we can to help.  We will get you parts at dealer cost. recommend trustworthy mechanics. locate used parts. ect. for as long as you own the car. Just let us know what you need. You are strongly encouraged to come and see the car in person. We will be glad to have you come in and take the car out to lunch or dinner. As long as you are a serious buyer. we'll pay for a nice meal and you can go and enjoy the car. ( This offer does not apply to teen-aged buyers without a parent present. We reserve the right to verify anyone's ID and their ability to buy prior to letting them run off with a free car. Hope you can understand. I also have to mention. based on a recent incident. that the dinner offer does not apply to you and 20 relatives! I now have to limit it to you and a spouse or mate. Always has to be some idiot to ruin a good thing. ) Come play with it. Make sure the car is as we say. Make sure you fit the car and the car fits you. Take it to a mechanic and have it looked at. Do anything within reason to make sure it is the car you expect! As for the free delivery mentioned above. The details are simple. If you use the Buy It Now. I will deliver the car or truck anywhere in the mainland US for free. I may be able to include lower Canada but you must check with me on that first. There are rules that apply to importing into Canada and all taxes and tariffs will be the buyer's responsibility. If I am delivering. I solely reserve the right to decide on how the vehicle gets to your location. I may have it shipped by professional car delivery service. I may delivery on my personal trailer or I may drive the car to you and fly back home. Driving it to you likely won't happen with a classic car. I will usually trailer it or ship it. If I drive one this will. of course. add a few miles but that can't be helped. Since I am paying for it. I have to consider distance. expense. time I have on hand. ect. Payment must be made IN FULL before the vehicle will leave our location. No exceptions will be made. not even to dealers!  Fees and taxes. In most cases. taxes will be paid by the buyer in their own states. There are. however. 7 states in the US that REQUIRE that Kentucky collect their taxes. If that is the case. there will be NO EXCEPTION to that rule unless you are a licensed dealer and can prove it. In that case. the car will ONLY be transferred into the dealership name. If you are an individual in a taxable state. we will collect the tax before the car can leave here so keep that in mind. Some of those states are South Carolina. Florida. Arizona. California. Indiana and a couple of others. Nothing we can do about it. Also. Kentucky requires that we collect a $50. 00 processing fee. This is NOT an in-house fee. It goes directly to the state of KY. All buyers will pay it regardless of what state they are in. We DO NOT charge hidden. in-house fees like some dealerships on here do! That is just a way to cheat buyers out of more money and we refuse to do that garbage. I strongly suggest that buyers refuse to pay those stupid fees when they enounter them. It is just an unfair practice! If this sale is for a camper. boat or RV. nbsp;(something that one could sleep in for short or extended periods of time) some states require that we collect a fire inspection fee. If you are in one of those states. this will apply. It varys by state but in most cases. it is about $150. 00. This is ONLY for campers. RVs and boats in SOME states.  Bidding and payment terms are pretty simple as well. DO NOT bid of you have no money! These auctions are expensive and I will not allow zero or low feedback bidders to bid. If you do. I will cancel the bid and block you from bidding again.  Zero feedback is the same as negitive feedback as far as I'm concerned. If you are not new to eBay but have no feedback and feel you should be allowed to bid. contact me and we'll work something out. My cell is 270-577-1821. Don't wait until the last minute to do this as it will be too late. As for payment. I expect a $300. 00 deposit via Paypal within 48 hours. The remaining amount should be paid within no more than 7 days. I accept any reasonable form of payment but checks must clear before the car will leave here. If you are picking it up. don't expect to show-up on Saturday or Sunday and write a check and leave with the car. Best bet for a weekend pick-up is cash or mail the check in advance so it will clear before you arrive. We will be happy to store the car indoors after payment for as long as needed. within reason. until you can come and get it. If the Buy It Now is not used. I may be willing to deliver the car for a fee but we will need to discuss that in advance. I always welcome deliveries to Florida as I can always use more vacation time! Where we are:  Henderson. KY is in Western KY (the car is in South Florida) which is close enough to several major cities that you can fly into them. We are about 150 miles from Nashville. TN; 120 miles from Louisville. KY; 180 miles from both Indianapolis. IN and St. Louis. MO. The closest airport is a regional in Evansville. IN. We can make arrangements to pick you up free in Evansville and Louisville. KY. For any of the other airports. we can get you but we'll have to have some help on travel expenses from the buyer. You are more than welcome to call me at any time to ask any question. My cell is 270-577-1821. I can also assist in finding any decent sports or luxury car that you may desire and can get them at less than what you will find them for elsewhere. We thank you for looking and wish you the best of luck in the bidding! Please see our other auctions for more Jaguars. Porsches. ect. as time permits and the weather gets warmer.   I absolutely HATE to have to add this paragraph to my auctions but due to recent events. I feel I have no choice. I have lost more than $1000. 00 in eBay fees just this month due to non-paying bidders and I'm sick of it! This is not a game. I am an auto dealer and a lot of people rely on these auctions to make their living. to pay their bills and to feed their families. Not only my auctions. but lots of auctions on eBay. When I list a car. it automatically costs me $187. 90. When it sells. I send it to get ready for the buyer to pick-up. By the time it's ready to go. I will have spent $300. 00 on it. If the buyer does not pay. I have to spend another $187. 90 to relist it. This is in addition to the money I have already spent on it. So when one sells and the buyer does not pay. I will have about $700. 00 tied up in it. I am no longer going to tolerate non-payment. Understand plainly that if you win and do not pay. I will expect and demand that you will pay the full amount of the expenses that I incur in fees. Not the auto prep fees but the eBay fees. If you do not pay immediately. I WILL file suit on the matter for the full amount of the vehicle. all eBay fees. court cost and attorney's fees. I have not lost a single case in dealing with these issues. I also report to the credit bureau. Cases will be filed in Henderson County. Kentucky which will require that you travel to KY for court. Should you fail to appear. KY law (KRS 514. 040) says that I will win by default. I will utilize all options to collect the amounts owed including liens on property and payroll attachments. No excuse will be tolerated. If you make a mistake. do what's right and correct it. If your mistake costs someone money. it is your moral and legal responsibility to pay to correct it. If you don't. then it is my responsibility to protect my business. my employees and my family and collect what is owed me. I fully intend to do so. I don't want to be a jerk and this will not be an issue if everyone plays be the rules and does what they are supposed to! A note to parents: You are responsible for your children's actions. Should you fail to supervise your child and he or she wins an auction. expect that you and that child will be dealt with in the above manner as well. if you don't take care of the expenses that the child causes. Do what's right and avoid all this!!
