Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this super clean Factory Five 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica Built in 2002 and is titled as a 2003 Roadster. The Factory Five company was established in 1995 and has quickly and consistently built a name for themselves for producing some of the finest Cobra Replica kits in the world. Factory Five collaborates with each customer on their personal build which results in amazing success. The number of available options really help to make each build custom and personalized. This example has a high-revving, fuel injected 302 C.I.D. V/8 is tucked between the fenders of this replica along with a 5-speed manual transmission paired up to a Ford limited-slip rear end. The engine has been upgraded with an MSD ignition box, MSD coil packs, and side-pipe exhaust, and Mustang Cobra style wheels makes for a very enjoyable driving experience and the 4-wheel disc braking brings it to a sure-footed stop. The white with blue stripes is a beautiful color scheme for this Cobra and works well with the black interior. The minimalistic dash layout lets you keep your attention on the most important engine vitals without overloading you with information. The V/8 rumbles to life with ease, thanks to the fuel injection, regardless of the temperature. Take a seat in this Cobra and you are sure to see why these have been such a popular car in the decades since its introduction, as well as the numerous replica companies that have spawned from its design. The white ball shifter feels right at hope in the palm of your hand, the steering feels just weighted enough to give proper feedback without being a strain at low speeds, and the chassis happily darts through the corners and roars up the streets. This Cobra is a beautiful example of exactly what Carrol Shelby's idea of an ideal race car in the mid '60's. This Cobra replica is set up to cruise the open road, but a heavy foot will have this Cobra screaming down the backroads!
