Finding that perfect Cobra replica that meets all quality expectations can be iffy, but this 1965 Shelby Cobra built by Everett-Morrison from Streetside Classics is a breath of fresh air and won't break the bank. Everett Morrison is known for their high-quality Cobra replicas; and this example is beautifully crafted and is insanely fast. Painted in a gorgeous Emerald Green with bronze stripes under the clearcoat, the “hand laid” craftsmanship that went into this car is undeniable.
Tilt the hood to expose the monster 427cui V8 topped with a big Holley four-barrel carburetor. Manually shift the power with a five-speed transmission.Ford Racing emblems grace the finned valve covers, and an aluminum intake crams air into the engine for utmost performance. To top it all off, a retro-style air cleaner was added for a period feel.
Inside the cabin is standard Cobra with no frills, just low back bucket seats in black leather. Inside is a thick wood-rimmed steering wheel, VDO gauges, and flip-up race-style toggle switches. Plush carpets are covered by Cobra-scripted floor mats. Forget the air conditioning, heat, and creature comforts, this Cobra was made strictly for pure performance.
For handling, an independent four-wheel suspension complete with beefy sway bars was installed, and power steering helps handle the car with ease. In addition, the rear features an independent suspension setup. Of course, stopping is necessity, so four-wheel disc brakes help bring this Cobra to an abrupt halt. 17-inch five-spoke wheels are wrapped with BFGoodrich tires that measure 245/45/17 in the front and 255/45/17 out back.
Set up as an SC, this Cobra features flares, and jacking stubs in place of bumpers, a chrome roll hoop, and a glass windshield among other things. A spacious trunk has room for a spare and tools or that track day or throw in a small bag if traveling.
This beautiful Cobra can haul the mail in a straight line or carve the corners like nobody’s business. Like a mini rocket ship, this car is ready for someone to snatch it up and drive it the way it was meant to. You can make your offer here.
