1965 Cobra Replica - Professionally Built!
As the oldest, factory-authorized Shelby Cobra dealer in North America, we've seen a lot of original, Continuation Series, and replica Cobras over the years. This stunning '65 Cobra replica is one of the nicest we've seen. With just over 1,700 miles on the odometer, it was driven to car shows and occasionally for a weekend cruise. Unlike the majority of home-built kit cars, this one was professionally built by Gordon Levy of Levy Racing in Tempe, Arizona, a renowned Cobra specialist and constructor. Gordon's Cobra replicas are among the best built, with performance, fit, and finish second to none. This Cobra is a perfect example of Levy Racing's work - a show quality Cobra replica, with street performance impressive to anyone fortunate enough to sit behind the wheel. Paint is a show quality, Viper Blue with white Le Mans stripes. Interior is leather and the dash displays reliable AutoMeter gauges for accurate performance data. The reliable powertrain is a perfect match for the car, provides exceptional performance, and delivers it with a "delicious" exhaust note. The engine was completely rebuilt using a ‘91 Mustang GT 302 C. I. block with a Powerdyne supercharger, Trick Flow aluminum heads, MSD distributor, Accel race spark plug wires, and billet aluminum accessory drive. It delivers 475 horsepower, and is mated with a 5 speed Tremec T-5 transmission. Power to the pavement goes through a 3:55 to 1 posi-trac differential. The combination of a 5 speed transmission and 3:55 rear end ratio delivers blazing fast acceleration and a comfortable 2,700 RPM cruise speed on the highway - the best of both worlds! If you're considering a Cobra replica here's a chance to own one that looks and feels like the original, for a fraction of the cost! It is located in the San Diego area and available for inspection.
