Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is pleased to present for sale, on consignment, this bad to the bone MKIII 1965 Factory Five Cobra! Feast your eyes and ears on this well thought out and well executed build! This project was just recently completed by the current owner after the 2 previous owners started but couldn't finish it. What essentially started as a gel coat body and a lot of parts in boxes, it was estimated that about 90% of the build was completed by the current owner. The Ford Ruby Red was sprayed with 3 coats of color and 4-5 coats of clear to create deep glossy finish that's evident to the naked eye, pictures do not do this paint enough justice. With few creature comforts, let us focus on the behemoth beneath the bonnet, we know the pictures show 427 cubic inch valve covers, but that's just because he couldn't find ones that he liked that said 428. This 428 is balanced and blueprinted and wearing adornments like an Edelbrock Intake, Holly Demon carburetor, long tube headers, MSD ignition and an aluminum radiator. Dyno results were reported to us as being upwards of 500 horsepower. Stopping comes by way of 4 wheel disc brakes, slotted and drilled rotors and a Wilwood master cylinder. A Tremec 5 speed manual transmission connects you to the feel of the engine and the road beneath you for a very analog, mechanical feeling, just like you'd expect from a high powered roadster. The OE brand wheels are wrapped in Nitto NT555 G2 275/40ZR17 up front and 315/35ZR17 in the rear which bring a touch of modern to the overall look while 4 point harnesses ensure you are snugged tight in the low back seats. The wood steering wheel reminds you of the days where leather gloves and an open faced helmet were the extent of your safety equipment on the track. While the passenger roll bar gives your co-pilot a vote of confidence that they too are being looked after.Please contact our sales staff to learn all about the process to becoming the next lucky owner of this outstanding automobile today!
