Classic Car Overview

1965 Shelby Cobra In 1961 a retired race car driver had a dream to find a sports car that could fit a more powerful V8 motor. That man was Carroll Shelby and that car became the Shelby Cobra. Shelby wrote to AC asking them to join him on this endeavor and they agreed should a suitable engine be found. He initially contacted Chevrolet but with the recent introduction of the Corvette, they refused. His next stop was Ford who understandably wanted something to compete with the Corvette and thus the Cobra was born. These cars have an extensive history in the automobile world and make for some of the coolest street cars on the road. These factory race cars can fetch in the millions of dollars nowadays which is why car builders are turning towards replicas to create their dream cars. This 65 Cobra was manufactured by a company called Ultimate Classic Cars. They have a longer wheelbase to accommodate taller people while also improving on road stability. The build on this car is very high quality, so much so that Ultimate still uses it in a lot of their brochures and advertising. It was completed in 2015 and has been very well cared for since. The paint work is beautiful and done in a Competition Orange with dual White racing stripes. They even continued with the stripes on the underside of the hood which really speaks to the level of detail. The car has dual nerf bars mounted in front/back and all of the chrome and stainless is in excellent condition throughout. It has the single full roll bar which really helps the car to stand out from the rest because the single driver roll bar is much more common. The windshield is in perfect condition and the car has both the side wind deflectors and the upper wind shades. The car has a great stance and sits on a set of American Racing Shelby wheels with knock offs for the perfect look. It has size 17x8 up front and 17 x 9 1/2 in rear with Nitto tires. You see some of these rolling around with modern 5.0 motors and we arent going to knock them but were very please to see a Prestige Motors 383 stroker motor sitting under this cars hood. It is much more in line with the Cobra history. The 351 Windsor block is a perfect base for the Cobra drivetrain and it is fitted with aluminum heads, Edelbrock intake, Holley 770 cfm street avenger carburetor, Cool Flex hoses, Ford Racing plug wires, March serpentine system, Speed Pro distributor, Scorpion roller rockers, Comp Cam hydraulic rollers, JE pistons, Eagle rotating assembly, 427 Cobra valve covers and a Cobra oval air cleaner. The motor was put on a dyno before installation and put out 470 hp and 460 torque at the flywheel. It delivers a great sound with custom headers into ceramic coated side pipes. Cooling is provided via the Afco aluminum radiator with electric fans. The transmission is a Tremec 5 speed with a steel scatter shield. It shifts smoothly and sends power back to the independent rear end with 3:73 Eaton gears and Eaton bearings. This thing really runs down
