Texas Classic Cars Of Dallas is proud to showcase this awesome 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica. When a Shelby Cobra replica is this well-built and has all the right features including a freshly built small block all aluminum 427 V8, well then, desirability is a guarantee. The amazing paint, and affordable price, is just what's going to make you act quickly to grab this one before some one else discovers it. You could build a replica yourself, but why bother investing a small fortune if the price is right, and the body looks this good and not to mention the time, money invested in this incredible drive train? This is a complete, and super-straight, roadster finished in a Guardsman Blue with white rally stripes. The overall effect is a super shiny package on this American racing icon that's only reinforced by the bright push bumpers in front, and classic tube rear bumper. Details like the knock-off style wheels, driver & passenger roll hoop, and wide fender flares, suggest that it was built for combat, and the hardware underneath backs it up. But even if you don't turn a wheel on the track, it's certain to turn heads on the street. The interior definitely gets the Shelby attitude right with wrap-around buckets, and the three spoke wood steering wheel. The gear stick has been bent forward for improved comfort. The full Legacy gauge package is critical if you're using your Cobra on the track, but if not, they also just look like cool representations of the Cobra's original Smiths readout package, The speedometer is gps monitored. There's no radio, no heater, but it does have heated seats, no A/C this was built with driving in mind, and it's all about the driving experience and nothing else needs to get in the way. Speaking of the driving experience, the best part of a Cobra is always under the hood. This one is powered by a Ford's legendary 427cubic-inch V8 that was fully performance built a few thousand miles ago. It's been dressed nicely with polished valve covers, with a polish and black look to the whole engine bay. Beyond just looking good, the motor makes some serious power by inhaling through a four-barrel 850 Holley Pro Series carburetor, and exhaling deeply through the powder-coated side pipes. The all aluminum 427 small block produces well over 600hp and 600lbft or torque, the block is a high performance all aluminum Dart Block w/ a 4.125” bore and 22cc dish forged piston giving a compression of 10-1, The heads are Brodix high performance 225 CNC heads. This V8 does a monstrous job of moving the lightweight fiberglass body, and you can stay in the power band with ease thanks to the custom built super alloy T-5 five-speed manual transmission. Of course, power is nothing without control. That's why this Cobra comes with an aluminum independent and adjustable front and rear suspension package, With adjustable control arms, coil overs, a frame, every way this car can be adjusted is possible thanks to this $8000 suspension upgrade. It's backed up by a four-wheel disc brake package, connected to wide Nitto Nt01 & Nt05 315/35R17 Rear & 255/40R17 Front tires. But as much as this seems like the perfect racecar, there is another side to this Cobra. With power steering, and a versatile rear end, this roadster might also be the perfect way to be seen cruising on a Saturday night. It's hard not to get excited about a Cobra that's a great package for the street and the strip. Cobra replicas remain just about the biggest bang for the buck in motoring, and with a lot of new parts, a clean, classic look, and that small block that roars like a big block thumping away up front, this Cobra delivers 95% of the original experience for 5% of the price.

The badges give the car that race car look. However, they are all magnetic so they can be removed if you choose. We have sold several Shelby 427 Cobra replicas, but this is one of the few that actually has the 427 engine. Notice the reverse speedometer which is a road track car item. The switches you see on the dash, are for various functions, including a theft deterrent. The owner was very creative, and there is a series of steps to be able to start the car, one of which is a fob that actually is an important step.  The 10,425 miles on the odometer, were all put on here in Dallas from the time the car was built until now.
