When it comes to a lot of car for not a lot of money. it's hard to beat a Factory Five Cobra. The formula is simple: take a lightweight. boxed chassis. wrap it in high-quality. tight-fitting fiberglass. plant a hot Ford V8 between the fenders and enjoy whiplash-inducing performance. Built. polished and ready to roar. this Factory Five Cobra combines cool Shelby looks with all the right hardware to turn your knuckles white with excitement! Best of all. it's a fully sorted. turnkey package that's available to you for a fraction of the time and money someone else spent building it. If you've been searching for the perfect car to maximize your dollar to thrill ratio. welcome to your next classic!

Factory Five Racing has long been applauded for their great fiberglass work. and this roadster is no exception. The car's virtually flawless body doesn't show a wave or ripple anywhere. and extremely tight panel gaps. which have become a Factory Five hallmark. provide an excellent foundation for traditional American war paint. With a spectacular blue basecoat layering its super smooth body. bright white stripes and familiar racing roundels create enough visual sizzle to match Carroll Shelby's enduring legacy of performance. And when you see this roadster in the 'glass. you'll forget all about those monotonous parking lot queens and agree that THIS is the true personality of ol' Shel's legendary Cobra!

Detailing is critical on Shelby replicas. and this is where a lot of cars start to disappoint. Fortunately. you can tell the overall impression of one of these roadsters from about five feet away. And naturally. since were featuring it. this Cobra hits all the right visuals. Up front. a familiar Cobra face hangs traditional halogen headlights above chrome-trimmed. bullet-style parking lamps and bright chrome quick lifts. At the top of those lifts. a smooth fiberglass hood props a small scoop between traditional rivets and new locking latches. Behind those latches. a tinted and chrome-trimmed windshield. which is flanked by a satin-finished racing mirror. dark-tint visors and Factory Five wind wings. reflects a canvas cockpit cover and polished stainless roll bar. Below those wings. ceramic coated side pipes complement finned air extractors. small "427 COBRA" emblems and a traditional. Monza-style fuel filler. And behind that filler. chrome-trimmed tail lights combine with a chrome tag light to illuminate a locking trunk handle and a second pair of chrome quick lifts.

Turning heads is only one of this Cobra's skills; it also does a very good job of going fast and making a lot of noise! Tilt the car's fully finished hood and you'll find a big Ford 427 that looks almost as mean as it sounds. The menacing mill utilizes a Scat crank. a Competition camshaft and Keith Black pistons to back 483 dyno-proven horses with 489 lb. /ft. of pavement-busting torque! At the top of that buff power source. a simple chrome air cleaner feeds a coated Edelbrock 850 carburetor that's tethered to an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake. At the sides of that carburetor. high performance Roush Motorsports heads ride below chrome. "427 COBRA" branded valve covers. At the front of those heads. an aftermarket points distributor sequences sparks between an MSD coil and high quality MSD Heli-Core Solid Suppression Wires. Beneath those wires. application-specific headers send charred dinosaurs into the aforementioned side pipes. And in front of those headers. a big aluminum radiator circulates water around a large electric puller fan. a polished overflow tank and stylish billet pulleys. You'll be happy to know the clean V8 has been sufficiently coated in bright blue paint and properly seated in a satin aluminum bay. And you'll be excited to see items like new stainless lines. fresh braided hoses and a heavy duty breather rounding out what amounts to a trophy worthy engine display.

One of the best things about buying a high quality Shelby replica is the modern hardware underneath. Fully sorted and ready to roll. this roadster's tough. powdercoated chassis and rigid suspension are ready to take on the fastest track you can find. Behind the car's hot engine. a rugged Tremec TKO500 5-speed sends power to spry 3. 73 gears via a proven 9-inch rear end. Below that beefy drivetrain. four wheel manual disc brakes combine with manual rack and pinion steering to mix excellent stops with controlled. era-correct handling. For the sake of ride quality. the car's traditional double A-arm front and 4-link rear suspension has been upfitted with slick coilover shocks. Power flows to the ground through classic 15-inch Halibrand knock offs which spin durable 225/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As in front of 275/50 BF Goodrich Radial T/As. And. thanks to its high power to weight ratio. completely modern components and a stiff. purpose-built structure. this roadster would most likely dispose of any traditional. race day Cobra.

Cobra interiors have always been simple. and even though this roadster ratchets up appeal with a few luxurious touches. its purist nature is blatantly clear. The car's black vinyl buckets are firm. look as good as new and feature 3-point Simpson Racing harnesses that provide optimal safety. In front of those buckets. a painted and upholstered dash props a small rearview mirror above well-placed accessory switches and a full assortment of Auto Meter gauges. At the sides of that dash. traditional fiberglass doors are fitted with fresh leather straps and small chrome latches. Below those doors. like-new carpet centers a stylish Factory Five shifter between a lowered driver foot well and thick. carpeted floor mats. In front of the driver. a polished Cobra steering wheel spins an attractive wood rim. And behind the passengers. a carpeted trunk seals a surprising amount of space above a center-mount battery.

The sale of this high quality custom includes a small stack of build receipts and a small pile of component manuals.

With classic looks. a killer engine and a fully sorted. track-ready chassis. this awesome roadster provides unmatched thrills for an unmatched price. It's the latest in our string of high quality Shelbys that look just as good as originals while benefitting from modern technology and 21st century build techniques. Don't miss this opportunity to own a turnkey Factory Five roadster that's just as nice as a real deal Cobra. and probably more fun to drive. at a fraction of the price!
