Classic Car Overview

Carroll Shelby was notoriously picky when it came to his prized creation, so its pretty significant that this 1965 Shelby Cobra by Superformance has the distinguished bragging rights of being created by one of the few officially licensed builders of the iconic model. Harboring a sizable, well-fortified big block beneath its hood, its in outstanding condition in all respects and would be equally at home inducing awe on the asphalt or causing envy at weekend car shows. The Cobras timeless, low-centered form is instantly recognizable to any car enthusiast, but when you get a little closer to this one, youll see its no ordinary representative of the model. The fit and finish on display here is impressive - the body is well-aligned, with nice even gaps surrounding the doors and hood, and the flowing front and rear fenders are uniform and perfectly-sculpted. This 65 looks great in its jet-black paint and the numbered accents on the hood and front fenders provide a fitting call out to its heralded race-inspired roots. The exterior is in very clean condition, with no blemishes of note, and a detailing will elevate this classic to top aesthetic form. A cloth convertible top in matching black is included with the car, so youll have the privilege of having exhilarating driving at your disposal year-round. Theres a nicely detailed, comfortable interior waiting beyond the doors, showing all the styling hallmarks associated with the model in their top form, including a pair of bucket sets covered in German leather that were constructed by hand and feature substantial 4 lap belts. The floor is lined with fresh matching carpet and the forward incline of the shifter mounted between the buckets puts it within comfortable reach. Peer past the woodgrain AC Cobra steering wheel and youll see a full assortment of clean, clear Smith gauges mounted on the glossy black dash to monitor vital motoring functions. Light usage - the car has logged fewer than 7000 miles - has yielded a definite benefit here, as this entire driving environment is in enviable condition. The Shelby Cobra brand is inextricably linked with spectacular performance and this specimen is certainly configured in that very spirit. The 460 cubic inch V8 holding court in the engine bay provides all the power needed for jaw dropping acceleration, topping out at more than 500 horses. Armed with a Holley 4 barrel carb perched on a Ford SVO performance intake manifold, this car will pin you back in your seat with just a tap on the accelerator, sending a deep, commanding note out of the headers leading into a pair of side pipes in the process. The accompanying Tremec T5 transmission puts maximum control of the abundant power in the hands of the driver. A pair of thermostatically controlled electric fans team with a sizable aluminum radiator in front to keep temperatures under control and an oil cooler is now in place to provide an additional layer of protection for the engine. This well-configured classic provides an exemplary experience behind the wheel thats about more than sheer, straight-ahead acceleration. The independent coilover suspension at both ends features Bilstein shocks and is fully adjustable, making for world class agility, while power rack and pinion steering combines with Wilwood power disc brakes at all four corners to provide easy, precise navigation and plenty of fade-resistant stopping ability. A quartet of 15 aluminum Halibrand wheels finishes off this stunning performance machine in just the right style. Thoroughly well-crafted, in very clean condition and offering performance capabilities few cars could even approach, this 1965 Shelby Cobra by Superperformance is an outstanding representative of the model.
