“Massachusetts's Factory Five Racing has been around since 1995. At that time, the fake-snake—er, replica Cobra—market didn't appear to need another manufacturer of low-priced, build-it-yourself kits. But Factory Five wasn't just another manufacturer. Other companies forced the would-be Cobra owner to source a bizarre array of parts ranging from Smiths instruments to Jaguar rear axles, but Factory Five told him: Get a wrecked five-liter Ford Mustang. Strip the parts. Add them to our kit. Now you have yourself a Cobra. It was a simple, brilliant idea.” – caranddriver.com
This wonderfully built, like-new example of the 1965 AC Cobra replica is a shining example of why Factory Five and their kits are the most popular kit in the market and with the professionally done mechanics to this vehicle, it is a hard-to-beat replica with all the power you could hope for! The current (and only) owner took great pride in building this replica as the craftsmanship shows but also spared no costs in the remaking of this ever popular model and has more documentation than you could hope for. Engine completely rebuilt by Pierce Race Engines of Lansing, MI which was finished in May of 2010, every part and piece added is documented and each specification and performance via a dyno test is also completed for the next owner to know and enjoy. At a whopping 486.4 horsepower, 538.6 ft. lbs. of torque matched with its 5-speed manual transmission that is paired with a Pro 5.0 shifter and heavy duty clutch from Mike Fortes, there is much more than just good looks and nostalgia that this beast has to offer. Every piece and part is listed and a box full of receipts, build manuals, part information and photos of its progress through its two year build, you are left with no questions as to what was put into this! The paint and body work was completed professionally by Gess Motorsports of Crete, IL which included rolled edges for the cockpit and hood scoop pop being riveted on to ensure quality and the Majestic Red with the Pewter stripes really help to make this a more unique and refreshing new look. The specifications for this quality re-creation has so many specifications to list we cannot emphasize the quality and attention to detail that was put into it. With additional options added when the kit was ordered, some of the great adds you are going to find are its two chrome roll bars, Independent rear suspension, street performer seats, Autometer traditional gauges, carbon fiber rock guards, finished inner door panel with carpet and vinyl pockets for both sides, ceramic coated headers and side pipes, Bilstein adjustable coil over shocks with upgraded oversized rods and many, many other great adds. With many awards won, massive documentation of professionally performed assembly and rebuilding, all the style in the world, you cannot deny the quality or condition of this fine ride!
