This 1965 Shelby Cobra Superformance has the classic look that will always make you stop and stare. But it's the performance-built V8 and all the right speedy components that make this roadster live up to its track-burning legacy.
This one makes the exact right first impression. After all, blue with white racing stripes is an American racing legend. Superformance is the gold standard in the Cobra business, and so the whole body has well-done look with plenty of aggressive flair in the fenders. Plus, you have all the right details finished in steel, like the quick-jack bumpers, quick fill fuel cap, and polished roll hoop. And we know you took immediate notice of the Halibrand-style wheels with genuine knock-off hubs.
The interior absolutely gets the Shelby attitude right. It keeps all the traditional components in place, including the low-back bucket seats, forward curved gearshift, and racing seatbelts. You'll love the grippy three spoke sports steering wheel, and the full Smiths gauge package is AC Cobra correct, right down to the reverse position speedometer. Plus, there are some thoughtful details you don't get in other Cobras, like the folding roof with side curtains. And there's also a heater to keep you warm when you want to get to the track day at dawn.
The engine bay has the right Cobra look with the valve covers and long air topper. But what you'll really love is the power this is making. It's a 351 cubic-inch V8 that the consignor states has been stroked to 392ci. It has the right go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, raised aluminum intake, and headers that feed those growling side pipes. This V8 does a great job of moving the lightweight fiberglass body, and you can stay in the power band with ease thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Of course, all this superior power is nothing without control. That's why this Cobra comes with a fully independent suspension with adjustable coil overs at each corner. It's backed up by a limited slip rear end, sway bars, and a four-wheel power disc brake package.
Complete with owner's manual, this has the look, features, and power you want. So when a quality build like this is up for grabs, you know you need to act fast. Call now!
