For sale in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom is a rare Factory Five Replica of a 1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe. After winning Le Mans in 1959, Carol Shelby wanted to return to Le Mans and beat Enzo Ferrari with a car of his own design. However, the Shelby Cobra had too much drag to achieve the top speeds on the Mulsanne Straight needed to beat Ferrari in the GT Class. Enter the Daytona Coupe. With its aerodynamic hatchback shape and new top speed, it not only won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but also went on to make Shelby the first American constructor to win the FIA World Sportscar Championship in 1965. This Factory Five replica beautifully pays homage to that legacy. The flowing silhouette of this racer is draped in a beautiful maroon with black racing stripes, sitting atop 17” Halibrand replica wheels and Nitto 555 tires. The 4” tube frame is powder coated, and sports an independent front suspension and live rear axle. Bringing everything to a halt are a set of Wilwood brakes, 13” rotors with 6 piston calipers up front, 12” rotors with 4 piston calipers out back all with adjustable bias. Motivating this 2,500lb fiberglass rocket is a balanced and blueprinted 351 Windsor with Edelbrock low-rise manifold, aluminum heads and 4 barrel carburetor, a Holley electric fuel pump, March polished underdrive pulley set, Canton Road Race pan, and a fully ductedFCO radiator. Transferring the power to the ground is a Tremec TKO 5 speed overdrive and a Moser 8.8” with 3.55:1 gears. Strap into the cockpit using the Simpson 5 point harness, and you will be greeted by a 14” Moto-Lita leather wheel, Autometer instrument gauges, Kirkey Racing seats, a Steeda short throw shifter, a fully functional rollcage, and vintage air. This Daytona is ready to steal any show you park it at or the track day you drive it to. To view this vehicle in greater detail including HD pictures and videos, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
