Less weight is the same as more horsepower, everyone knows that. But what happens when you take a car with one of the best power-to-weight ratios of all time, then take out even MORE weight? You get this 1965 Shelby Cobra replica by Factory Five. With a carbon-fiber body, a potent stroker motor, and a chassis built for combat, this is the most extreme Cobra youll ever drive. Factory Five built 10 Cobra bodies out of carbon fiber, with this being one of them. Weighing in at just 50 pounds, the featherweight body shell is even lighter than the original aluminum and puts this Cobra squarely in the insanity category when it comes to performance. Its drenched in bright red paint, so nobody will notice the carbon (although we have to admit the idea of a naked carbon Cobra is insanely appealing), making even this Cobra a bit of a sleeper. It has a very traditional look with a correct set of white stripes that wrap around into the jambs, proper vents in the fenders, and exceptionally good finish quality. The carbon is incredibly strong and rigid, so the car feels robust, not flimsy as youd expect, and with the typical Cobra accents like the bumperettes, flip-up gas cap, and Lucas-style taillights, nobodys going to know the difference. The only thing that might give it away is the two-man roll hoop, but given this cars proclivity for acceleration, its just a good idea. The interior is also very much in the traditional Cobra style, with wrap-around black buckets, simple door panels, and a wide transmission tunnel with a forward-canted shifter. Smiths gauges monitor the vitals and theyre correct right down to the reverse-rotation speedometer. Theres also a fat leather-wrapped wheel with a set of traditional spokes and Cobra horn button, a nice twist on the original thats also more functional. Full carpets help control noise and heat and there are full harnesses and removable head rests; again, simply a good idea for a car that accelerates like a rocket sled. The trunk is finished bare aluminum, which certainly looks industrial, and the car comes with a convertible top assembly and side curtains that have never been installed. Dressed in finned Cobra gear, the 320 cubic inch 5.0 stroker motor is a massive over-achiever, particularly with less than a ton to haul around. It features AFR 185 aluminum heads, a big Holley carburetor, MSD ignition system, and race-grade fittings throughout. A billet serpentine accessory drive system manages the alternator and water pump, because power steering isnt required on something so light. Custom headers dump into those fantastic-sounding sidepipes and nobody who hears this car will know that its not a 427 making the noise. Underneath theres a tube frame chassis with A-arms and coil-overs, rack-and-pinion steering, and big disc brakes up front, while the rear end is a familiar Mustang 8.8-inch with trailing arms and adjustable shocks, plus another set of disc brakes. The 5-speed manual gearbox snaps off easy shifts and has a deep overdrive so this monster is still pretty reasonable to drive on the street. And with so little weight, those giant 17-inch Cobra R replica wheels and giant tires are massive overkill. Its going to be hard to find the limits on this Cobra. Light weight, big power, awesome looks, and impressive build quality make this Cobra stand out. For the money, well wager there is no faster car available anywhere and if youre a good enough driver to master it, this Cobra offers rewards that few other cars can match. Call today!
If you want a visceral driving experience, then you should consider this Cobra replica. You feel alive when you roll down the road in one of these. There is a feeling of connection with the legend of Carroll Shelby and driving one is a feeling like no other. The power to weight ratio is incredible, so if you choose to cut it loose, it can really throw you around. The shape of the car is immediately identifiable, even by those who are not Shelby aficionados. If someone doesnt realize what it is, its all that much more fun to have the conversation. The one about how a little British sports car became an icon of American ingenuity and defeated the factory backed racing teams from Europe by stuffing a V8 engine under the hood, flaring the fenders and squeezing some serious rubber underneath them. This one is coated in a beautiful shade of Blue with Silver racing stripes that are painted on. Lots of air gets in through the large opening of the grill for the radiator and there is a scoop on the hood too. Vents in the front fenders just below a red, white and blue Ford badge give the hot air a place to escape. Also, it doesnt get much more awesome than having chrome side pipes running along the rockers and the sound they make is beautiful music. The interior of this car is pretty spartan. It is representative of the purpose for which it was designed, which was winning races. There is nothing there that doesnt need to be, and what is there is quality equipment. The bucket seats are simple but comfortable and supportive in pleated vinyl with wraparound side bolsters on the back. A beautiful wooden steering wheel is mounted on a three spoke hub with the iconic Cobra badge as a center button. The dash is filled with Autometer gauges to keep track of critical engine functions with the tachometer mounted prominently within easy view of the driver and a speedometer that sweeps in the reverse direction, just like in the originals. The shifter for the manual transmission sweeps forward which is also true to the original design. There are provisions for racing harnesses built into the roll bar and a fire extinguisher too because they were mandated in the original race cars. Open the hood and you will find a healthy Ford 302 cubic inch motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. A black Edelbrock air topper feeds an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and polished intake manifold. Black and brushed aluminum valve covers help some with oil cooling and feature Cobra in big bold letters. Headers wind their way out the side of the engine bay to the side pipes which sound awesome and help keep the car nice and low to the ground. Accessory mounts and pulleys are machined out of billet aluminum and the reservoirs for the brakes as well as the clutch are mounted off to the side away from the heat of the headers. Power flows back through a 5-speed manual transmission and 4-wheel disc brakes insure that you can haul this car back down from speed if you decide to let the horses run. Cobra center spin knock off wheels complete the picture and the rubber meets the road through 295/50R15 Cooper Cobra radials in the back and 235/60R15s in the front. Come on down and check out this tribute to an American racing legend. Both the man and the machine. These cars are fun to drive because of the reaction they get from people who see them driving down the street, and also from the feeling you get when you drive one.
A powerful fuel-injected V8, unique paint, and mileage so low that this only need the first column in the odometer so yes, this 1965 Shelby Cobra by Factory Five is that serious performance machine built to standout in any crowd. The paint on this one tells a very cool story. Its a shade of Go Mango used on the Viper SRT10, and that car was first envisioned to be a modern-day Shelby Cobra. So to have a fresh replica build (completed earlier this year and only 2 miles on the odometer) carry this modern color seems like the right kind of family connection. More than just a great story, this deep metallic orange looks terrific as the gloss helps highlight the flared curves of the legendary Cobra design. The distinctive matte black stripe package has been painted on correctly, and you see it in how it fully encompasses the car including below the front intake, under the hood crease, and into the cabin. Those stripes need to be this complete, because they go with all the other dark details like the quick jack racing bumpers, roll hoop, and side pipes. And because a Cobra is meant to be open to the world, the interior continues this aggressive black look to coordinate with the exterior accents. This has all the right Cobra pieces, like the wood grain steering wheel, forward slanting gear stick, and a full set of gauges including the correct reversed speedometer. Plus, you have a pair of racing bucket seats with Simpson five-point harnesses. So this roadster is ready to get down to speedy business. Its always great to see a Ford V8 under the hoods of Cobra, and this one takes the legend into the modern era. This is a 5.0L fuel-injected motor, and it has been rebuilt for reliable fun. So you have a powerful motor that has been fortified to handle powerful driving. You get to enjoy the high-octane soundtrack this creates with the header-fed growling side pipes. Best of all, you are the conductor of this symphony with the strong TKO500 five-speed manual transmission. Whether on the street or the track, youll appreciate features like the tubular A-arm front suspension, SVO rear suspension, power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires. Complete with title documentation, this is a distinct, powerful, and absolutely fresh Cobra. You already know what kind of value this one is, so dont miss your chance. Call now!
When its time for a truly superior track-ready Cobra, youre going to want to check this one out. With a 480+ hp Roush V8, fully independent suspension, rare hardtop, profession speed shop build, and all the other right competition upgrades, youre looking at a slick silver bullet out to win it all. The Superformance MKIII is such an accurate representation of the big engine Cobras that they make sure to license it from Carroll Shelby. While you have the classic Cobra curves, they are taken to a very modern dimension thanks to the titanium paintwork. The metallic shine this radiates in the sunlight makes you pay attention longer to the wide fender flares and reveals detail usually lost on other Cobras. Plus, this has a dark side with the black racing stripes and jack bumpers. And the details on this one are really going to impress you. Theres a color-matched hardtop properly fitted by Olthoff Racing; chip guards applied to the front & rear; a soft top complete with side curtains; and proper Halibrand-style knock-off wheels. The Terlingua Racing Team badge on the back tells you this one was prepared by someone who truly understands Carroll Shelbys racing history. The interior definitely gets the Shelby attitude right with wrap-around leather buckets and classic Smiths gauges with correct reversed speedometer. But more than just the vintage attitude, this was built for modern competition. You get five-point Crow racing harnesses, a strong Olthoff full-width five-point roll bar, Jordan performance shifter, and an upgraded sports steering wheel. Its a total package that gets you instantly ready for speedy business. This car follows the theme of a vintage Cobra lineage with modern performance upgrading and thats especially true under the hood. So while you have a Ford V8, its a Roush Performance 402R powerhouse. It includes a TW camshaft, massive Holley 770 CFM four-barrel carburetor, and an Edelbrock performance intake. The full package is rated at 480+ horsepower, and this superiority is announced by the wicked growl of the side pipes. The monster motor is fully under your control thanks to the Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission. Getting all of this to the ground is a stout BTR Dana limited slip rear end. Control is a central them to this Cobra, which is why it includes features like a fully independent suspension, Bilstein shocks, rack & pinion steering, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes with four-piston calipers. This is a professional build by Olthoff Racing, and it has the title documentation and owners manual that comes with the sale. Theres even a dyno sheet to prove the big power. So dont let this turn-key opportunity slip through your fingers. Call now!
This is 1965 Shelby Cobra Superformance is a serious speed machine with a 547 horsepower heart. But more than just big power, it has all the right details from a fully-independent suspension to uniquely slick paintwork. The classic Cobra body is truly a beautiful thing. AC Cars gave it European grace, and Carroll Shelby added American flair. So the body has flowing lines that are intertwined with speedy features like the hood scoop, racing stripes, and bulging fenders that contain the wide performance tires. You see this so well thanks to a body built with a precision fit. On top of that is a unique shade of Portofino Blue that has a deep metallic luster and even slightly shifts color in the sunlight. Contrasting all this brightness are the right performance components like the roll hoop, jack bumpers and side pipes all finished in black. This mixture of shine and darkness unite nicely on the Halibrand-style knock-off wheels. Superformance knows how to do a Cobra right inside and out. Thats why youll find all the correctly authentic pieces on the interior. It includes rounded bucket seats, a competition-ready fire extinguisher, racing lap belts, and a wood and chrome sports steering wheel. Youll even love the details, like how the gearstick is bent forward and the full set of Smiths gauges with the reverse speedo. Under the hood is exactly what you love to see. The engine bay is stuffed with V8 power, and you even get the proper Cobra valve covers and matching long air topper. Plus, this has all the right performance to back up its clean and mean appearance. Its a 418 cubic-inch stroker motor. They gave it all the right performance upgrades, including a Demon double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise aluminum intake, AFR heads, and headers feeding the growling side pipes. The full package is rated at 547 horsepower, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! All this power is at your command thanks to the Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Superformance builds a terrific chassis, and to that they added exactly what you want in a track-ready car that is equally enjoyable and tameable for the streets.

Huge power, great control, and a strong running total package headline this Cobra, but its the details that will really clinch it for you. So dont let this distinct legend slip away. Call now!

On the outside this just looks like a beautifully built 1965 Shelby Cobra, but then everybody else on the track starts wondering why you can smoke them all. Thats because this is a Backdraft Racing Cobra. It means a 501 hp Roush V8, a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, beefy five-speed gearbox, and a whole host of other goodies to make this one of the baddest Cobra youve ever laid eyes on. The paint makes this one an instant standout even among other Cobras. The classic racing color scheme is given an update as the bright white funnels plenty of attention to the red full dual racing stripes. And the Cobra always looks aggressive even when standing still. The sweeping fender arches, large side gills, and hood scoop are what makes these sports car legends. You can see this so crisply because Backdraft offers one of the highest quality bodies in the Cobra industry. This one has just the right touches of brightwork on the quick jack bumpers, roll hoop, racing gas cap, and covers over the side pipes. And those Halibrand-style knock-off wheels are a must-have for a truly distinguished Cobra. The red bucket seats are great against the exterior colors. If you look closely, you can see better bolstering in the leather inserts than you get in most Cobras. And with the dash and door panels matching this, you get a distinct and aggressive look. This one was built in the grand tradition of true competition-ready machines with a wood-rimmed steering wheel, forward bent gearstick, and a dash full of gauges dominated by the large speedo and tach. You even have race-ready Crow harnesses. When you lift the hood, the air topper and valve covers announce that your big block was built by true performance masters. This Roush 427 cubic-inch V8 has all the right pieces, including a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, and headers to feed the growling side pipes. The full package is rated at 501 horsepower, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! All this power is only at its best when you have the right components to control it.

This impressive 1965 Shelby Cobra, chassis CSX 3006, was equipped from the factory with a potent competition 427 side-oiler aluminum-head engine, which was billed to Shelby American on 31 December 1964. Work order 15060 was opened on 25 January 1965 to build CSX 3006 for William G. Freeman of Muncie, Indiana. Freeman specified that his Cobra be finished in metallic blue, a shade lighter than that of the team cars, with gold Le Mans stripes. It was invoiced to Hi Performance Motors in Los Angeles, California, on 7 April 1965 at a cost of $9,600, plus $24.86 for a shoulder harness. Freeman picked the car up at the dealership and photos of the car at that time show that it was delivered with 6.578.5-in. FIA Halibrand wheels and devoid of a Cobra nose emblem. Freeman campaigned the car in two SCCA races, including Lynndale Farms, before being offered a lucrative racing contract in Europe. The Cobra was then offered for sale in May 1965: Cobra Mark II. Just purchased. Unexpected racing contract in Europe forces sale. Immediate delivery. All options including extras and custom trailer. Discount for cash. However, the Cobra did not sell at the time, and a second ad appeared in Competition Press in November 1965 stating that the car had been stored in France since May. Freeman eventually sold his Cobra to an Air Force Captain from Dayton, Ohio, who then sold it to The Chequered Flag in London, England. There the car was converted to right-hand drive, painted white with a black hood and custom scoop, and campaigned in the 1966 season. Its European racing debut at the Brands Hatch Ilford 500 was nothing less than exceptional. Bob Bondurant, former Shelby American Team driver who had just won Shelby their ?rst and only FIA World Championship and Le Mans in the previous year, was paired with David Piper whose long-distance racing career was virtually unparalleled. The race started in wet conditions after a torrential downpour. As seen in the famous photo of the start, Bob Bondurant jumped to the front row amongst two Ford GT40s, leaving the lightweight Jaguar E-type and a Ferrari 250 LM in the trail spray behind. The English American duo proved to be the right choice as Bondurant and Piper took the overall win after six grueling hours. CSX 3006 continued the season racing, again at Brands Hatch with Formula 1 driver Chris Irwin, as well as a few other minor events. Bondurant once again got a chance to drive CSX 3006 this time at FIA World Championship race in Zeltweg, Austria, where the car ran into mechanical problems and failed to finish. The Chequered Flag continued to race the car in various events until it was sold in 1969 to Edwin Butterworth who reportedly entered the car in two more races. John Carden purchased the Comp Cobra as an investment before selling it back to The Chequered Flag in 1977. Mike Shoen, known as one of the earliest Cobra/Shelby collectors and historians, owned only the most signi?cant Fords, including two Daytona coupes, the Mirage GT40, and CSX 2345, the very best factory team 289 Cobra, he purchased CSX 3006 in 1977. Shoen, who later authored the famous book Cobra Ferrari Wars, entrusted expert Cobra restorer Geoff Howard to complete a ground up restoration, returning it to its original LHD con?guration with Blue paint and racing stripes. After nearly a decade, Shoen sold the car to Bob Jordan, who has also owned several Cobras over the years. After several interim owners, Steve Juliano, well known in the Cobra community to be one of the most particular of Cobra enthusiasts, purchased CSX 3006. After a rare opportunity to buy an original Mark II GT40 presented itself, Juliano traded the Cobra back to Jordan. Wes Cadillac-Olds, who had originally purchased the car from Bob Jordan, repurchased it for a second time before placing it for sale in 1989. George Stauffer, one of the most famous names in Cobras and GT40s, purchased the car in 1990 before moving it to David Livingston, who vintage raced it in 1990 placing 1st overall in group 8 at the Palm Springs Vintage Races. Renowned Ferrari collector Chris Cox acquired the Cobra and sold it to Matt Prowse. Another notable collector, Jim Spiro purchased it in 1998 and occasionally used it for road use after having a mechanical restoration performed on the car by Dralle Engineering.In 2003, Spiro sold the car to the very knowledgeable and astute collector Larry Bowman. Bowman sent CSX 3006 to the widely respected Legendary Motorcar Company of Ontario, Canada, to perform a complete, no-expense-spared, ground-up restoration returning it to its Brands Hatch-winning con?guration. Bowman even found the original lightweight custom seats that Piper and Bondurant squeezed into in 1966, which are included with the sale, as well as the side curtains. The entire restoration was documented and featured on Dream Car Garage, a television series produced by Legendary Motorcar.In 2009, the car was passed onto a European collector before being sold to Gary Bartlett of Muncie, Indiana, the same town the car was delivered to nearly 50 years before. Bartlett showed the car over the next ?ve years taking it to the most prestigious events around the world including the Pebble Beach Concours d Elegance, the Goodwood Revival, and Concorso Villa D Este, to name a few. This Cobra participated in some of the world s most exclusive events and shows during Bartlett s ownership. The car is fully sorted and an absolute pleasure to drive. The Comp Cobra is certainly docile enough for road use, tours and rallies, or ready for driving a few laps at the track!Of the 19 production Competition Cobras produced, CSX 3006 checks all the proverbial boxes. An early competition 427 full Comp car that has retained its original aluminum body is virtually unheard of. Additionally, it has a sterling provenance that includes stellar European winning race history piloted by some of the biggest names in sportscar racing. Along with a correct, high-quality restoration, CSX 3006 is arguably the very best and most significant production 427 Competition Cobra in existence.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am19.

These Cobra replicas are so much fun and provide a huge upside for the owner. The ability to customize the vehicle how you want it and swap out parts and drivetrains make these an endless dream. The Factory Five Company based out of Wareham, MA is regarded as one of the top kits on the market and a long proven track history.This build started in 2002 with Terry Pitt out of Brighton MI making his order to the Factory Five Company to start his build process. Vehicle was completed around 2004 with a great stance and powerful V8 setup. The donor car was from a 1991 Mustang 5.0L and according to previous owner was in great shape mechanically. Engine, drivetrain, transmission and some suspension components were used to install on this build. All new parts for hardware, body, interior and gauges were sourced from Factory Five or similar shop. Vehicle fires up nicely and hustles through all 5 gears and easily engages into reverse.
