Bill of Sale or Registration
1965 SHELBY COBRA
This 1965 Factory-Five Cobra replica was completed by a certified factory five associated builder in the USA in 2000 before it made its way to Alberta. The powertrain separates this car from most as it's running a Ford Racing 5.0L crate engine topped with a Vortech V2 Supercharger. We recently had the car re-tuned with an all new Holley fuel management system then set up on the dyno. Upgrades include higher volume injectors, higher volume fuel pump, new map sensors, and specialty programming.It is now pumping out a whopping 441 hp at the engine with the boost dialed down to only 5lbs -- impressive! Power runs through a Ford T5 5-speed manual into a Ford 8.8 rear end with 3.73 gears. The fiberglass body is attached to a custom tubular steel chassis. The power to weight ratio is impressive as this car clocks in at approx. 2200lbs dry weight. It is a very authentic build, with such nice touches as a Cobra wood steering wheel, correct 5-point Simpson racing harnesses, and Shelby Halibrand style aluminum wheels.
