From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

A fortified 450hp V8, five-speed stick, and fully independent suspension all on a fresh build thats what headlines this 1965 Shelby Cobra by Factory Five. But as you dig into all the details from the leather seats to the growling side pipes you see a classic with modern performance in mind. Platinum Gray Metallic with white painted stripes is a modern interpretation of an iconic application, and the sunshine loves this hint of gold in the finish. It looks this good, because theres less than 8,300 miles on the build. So its crisp and clean. This really lets the details show, like the blue dot headlights, hood scoop, carbon fiber fender shields, and the extra flaring in the fenders on this quality Factory Five body. This also has all the right pieces for a true vintage competition machine, like quick jack bumpers, polished roll hoop, and Halibrand-style wheels. Overall, its a Cobra that commands attention even before people hear the side pipes growl. Low mileage means little seat time, and so the supple black leather bucket seats look terrific. The classic look still holds your body right in the turns, especially with the five-point Simpson racing harnesses. And you can see this is ready for the track with details like the short stalk shifter, grippy Factory Five steering wheel, fire extinguisher, and a full set of crisp AutoMeter gauges. But more than just a competition machine, this Cobra comes with some nice everyday comfort upgrades like a heater and AM/FM/CD stereo. So feel free to enjoy this one for far more. Under the hood is an awesome powerplant. Those valve covers announce this as a 427 cubic-inch Ford Racing stroker V8. It has been enhanced and fortified with all the with pieces, including a Scat forged steel crankshaft, Scat I-beam connecting rods, Mahle pistons, Ford Racing 64cc aluminum cylinder heads, roller rockers, MSD ignition, Edelbrock Performer air gap intake, and topped with a Holley 750 double-pumper four-barrel carburetor. The full package is rated at 450 horsepower, and the growl of the header-fed side pipes announces this power superiority. This has all the right supporting components, too, including a Fuel Safe fuel cell, Optima red top battery mounted in the rear, upgraded pulleys, and a Griffin aluminum radiator to help keep this V8 running cool. You have complete control over the full power package thanks to a Borg Warned five-speed manual transmission with performance clutch. And you get to take full advantage of this quality build thanks to the fully independent suspension that includes the right components like a limited slip rear end, adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel disc brakes. The sale comes with docs, including build receipts, factory build specs, build photos, owners manual, service manual, and maintenance records. It all shows that this is a powerful and thoughtful build of a true legend. Call now!
