Carrol Shelby was motivated by speed as a driver and after retiring from racing he obtained a license to import the AC Ace. He fell in love with the performance of the small English roadster at Le Mans and knew he could beef it up with a Ford V8 to compete with the fastest autos in the world. Shelby's thirst for performance and the victory circle caused him to become a household name and automotive legend, and the AC Cobra is his crowning achievement. With sales of actual AC Cobra's in the 7 figures, companies like Factory Five produce awesome replicas for that high-performance Cobra driving experience without the price tag.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this Factory Five Cobra that was in West Virginia so it is smog test compliant. The fit and finish on this beauty reflect the care it’s received through the build and through its years on and off the road. It's powered by the Ford 302 4-BBL V8 engine and Tremec 5-speed manual transmission. It's very smooth through the gears and responds mightily when you ask it to. It also features high flow Factory Five catalytic converter and side pipes, HD aluminum radiator, 3.55 sure-grip axle, Edelbrock intake, 650 Holley carburetor, 5-point Simpson safety belts, coil over suspension, electric fan, MSD ignition, leather seats, and more! The interior has Auto Meter gauges including speedometer, tachometer, water, oil, fuel pressure, fuel level and volts. This is a really fun, fast, loud, and mean car to have sitting in the garage just ready to go tear up some roads with you! Please call or email for more details.
