Listen Up: This car will leave you DISABLED!  Flatten your eyeballs! Did you want to buy a Cobra new in '65 but just couldn't come up with $6K (that's right--$5995 would have bought you a new '65 289 Cobra--no heater of course--that was extra! $2495 bought a new Mustang). Well, here's your chance.

Dyno tuned Ford 351W, aluminum pistons, AFR 165 heads, Comp cam, Comp roller rockers, Canton road racing pan, MSD 6AL ignition, all rotating pieces balanced, ARP rocker bolts, Edelbrock Performer RPM manifold and Holley 750 CFM double pumper, IRS, Tremec World Class 5-speed, Ford 3-row Heavy Duty aluminum racing radiator (ZERO heating problems). Flawless metallic "black rose" paint. Correct Autometer gages, Simpson harnesses, powder coated and anodized thoughout, Pioneer 600 watt stereo and ALL the extras--even a heater, wipers and cruise control! See full specifications below. They just don't come any nicer--this one is PERFECT!

This car is built with aircraft hardware and fasteners thoughout--no hardware store pop rivets or sheet metal screws holding together structural members. It runs strong, cool and is tight. All parts are either new or rebuilt with new parts. This car is EXTREMELY fast but has gentle driving characteristics on the street. It will easily go 0-60 in under 4 seconds and will run circles around ANYTHING on the street including Vipers yet is perfectly tractable (and runs cool) in rush hour stop and go traffic. Yes, your mother (or even your wife or sister) could drive this car, no problemo.  You will not find a nicer Cobra nowhere!
