1965 Cobra Roadster
For the power and style enthusiast, everyone knows that having both in an original is way out of most people's reach. In particular those all originals can be finicky and require lots of garaging and trailering, and little driving, unless you are pulling your personal wrencher in a motor home with that classic!
As the saying goes there is more than one way to skin a cat, or you can have your cake and eat it too! The solution lies in this classic repro from Everett Morrison. This car was painstakingly constructed by Enzo Alibrandi of Finish Line Motors, hailing out of Miramar, Florida. And, in this case it's all wrapped up for you. Just get in and drive.
This SC style body with flares is draped in stunning red. Dual wide white racing stripes run through the middle of the car from bow to stern. Chrome shows slight early signs of minor pitting and dulling but remains good. Gaps are good, and fiberglass is unmarred. Dual chromed side pipes “snake” their way from the engine bay to the rockers. 15” Halibrand repo knockoff spinners are wrapped by Goodrich TA radials, and are on all 4 corners. Noted are a hood scoop, and a chromed roll bar, just as an original would have.
Black vinyl tuck and roll buckets with racing harnesses sit within a sea of black carpet. Seats are in very nice condition and carpet is good. Cobra embroidered floor mats keep the carpet from getting too worn out. A nice black padded and white stitched vinyl dash front has several gauges inset, as well as a few toggles. 3 spokes for the aluminum steering wheel with centered Cobra logo, and a wood laminated wheel surround protrudes from the dash. This car has a frame and cloth top that can be installed, as well as side curtains.
The 351ci Windsor V8 which is a Phoenix Engine's crate motor is tucked neatly into the clean engine bay. A single 4-barrel feeds the mill, and a Richmond 5-speed manual transmission is bolted to the back.
Straight and strong tubular steel with very nice body hangers, rust free rockers, and a clean tub underneath, present very nicely. 4-wheel independent suspension and 4-wheel power disc brakes can be seen from underneath.
Lighting the candles and instantly you are enveloped in a concert of side-piped sound in stereo. Pop it into gear, and off you go, with a smooth shifting transmission, sturdy feel to the clutch, and plenty of power. Steering wheel is ergonomically placed, and this car handles very well. A pleasure to drive, and plenty of volume for your listening and driving pleasure.
Basically, turn the key and go with this red and white striped kit racer. With exacting standards during the build, and well documented in the various material that comes with this car, receipts, and data, you will be rest assured you have a quality replica in your capable hands. Please note this is a SP CONSTRUCTION Pennsylvania Title.
