1965 Shelby Cobra Superformance Description

This is 1965 Shelby Cobra Superformance is a serious speed machine with a 547 horsepower heart. But more than just big power, it has all the right details – from a fully-independent suspension to uniquely slick paintwork. The classic Cobra body is truly a beautiful thing. AC Cars gave it European grace, and Carroll Shelby added American flair. So the body has flowing lines that are intertwined with speedy features like the hood scoop, racing stripes, and bulging...fenders that contain the wide performance tires. You see this so well thanks to a body built with a precision fit. On top of that is a unique shade of Portofino Blue that has a deep metallic luster and even slightly shifts color in the sunlight. Contrasting all this brightness are the right performance components like the roll hoop, jack bumpers and side pipes all finished in black. This mixture of shine and darkness unite nicely on the Halibrand-style knock-off wheels. Superformance knows how to do a Cobra right inside and out. That's why you'll find all the correctly authentic pieces on the interior. It includes rounded bucket seats, a competition-ready fire extinguisher, racing lap belts, and a wood and chrome sports steering wheel. You'll even love the details, like how the gearstick is bent forward and the full set of Smiths gauges with the reverse speedo. Under the hood is exactly what you love to see. The engine bay is stuffed with V8 power, and you even get the proper Cobra valve covers and matching long air topper. Plus, this has all the right performance to back up its clean and mean appearance. It's a 418 cubic-inch stroker motor. They gave it all the right performance upgrades, including a Demon double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise aluminum intake, AFR heads, and headers feeding the growling side pipes. The full package is rated at 547 horsepower, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! All this power is at your command thanks to the Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Superformance builds a terrific chassis, and to that they added exactly what you want in a track-ready car that is equally enjoyable and tameable for the streets. This includes a fully-independent suspension with QA1 adjustable coilovers and Wilwood disc brakes at each corner. Huge power, great control, and a strong running total package headline this Cobra, but it's the details that will really clinch it for you. So don't let this distinct legend slip away. Call now!
