Perhaps no other American manufacturer has gained more international recognition than Carroll Shelby. His thirst for performance and the victory circle has made him an household name in all aspects of Motorsports. The A/C cobra is Shelby's crowning achievement. Large horsepower integrated with a lightweight tubular chassis and sexy and built aluminum body, coupled with a strong partnership with AC motorcars and Ford, Shelby's AC 427 Cobra thundered onto the scene offering high horsepower to the already popular small block, sleeker bodied cars that appeared 2 years prior. To this day, the look, sound, power and feel of the Cobra remains on the bucker list of many motoring enthusiasts and with original examples far exceeding 7 figures in value, small independent manufacturing companies began building replica versions of the Cobra. Factory Five has been on top of the game for over 20 years in building the highest quality Cobra component car kits and are revered as the best in the business.
GR Auto Gallery is thrilled to offer this exciting, highly engineered, 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra replica by Factory Five. The car offered here was ordered new and configured by an automotive engineer and performance enthusiast. It is finished in classic Shelby Royal Blue with Artic White Stripes. The car has recently been completely freshened cosmetically and also treated to a complete mechanical restoration. It is powered by a professionally prepared 347 Ford stroker engine that produces 475 horsepower which has been properly broken in for 500 miles and now features just 840 miles since installed.

The performance of this Cobra is amazing and the build quality along with its mechanical engineering gives total confidence to the driver as this high performance cobra is fully sorted and ready to perform for its second owner. The car has been owned, cherished, and drivin by its original owner since 2003. During that time, the car has been looked after constantly, always being refined, improved upon and has evolved into a superior Factory five Cobra. Documentation includes a significantly large catalogue of receipts, diagrams, specs and everything else the new owner would need to know about nearly every inch of the car.

Ford's strong racing history is a prime example of why these cars are on the road today and are so desirable by the masses. With a style and sound unlike any other vehicle on the toad, the Shelby Cobra has become an American Icon. High quality examples such as this remain in high demand. This car is titled as a 2003 assembled.
