For sale in our Chicago showroom is this phenomenally well built Factory Five â??65 Cobra Replica. Factory five is arguably one of the best manufacturers of Cobra kit bodies. They allow the builder of the kit to take any direction they please when assembling the vehicle. The owner of this vehicle wanted to walk the fine line of a â??streetâ? car and a â??raceâ? car. Powered by a fully built 331 small block Ford making an estimated 400 horsepower backed by a fully rebuilt T5 manual transmission, this American icon stays true to its roots, while playing with modern technology.
Modern features like the complete braking system, including the Hydroboost setup, from a â??97 Mustang Cobra, push-button start, even heated seats! The front drilled and slotted rotors are gripped hard to bring this fiberglass rocket to a standstill. The entire car is insulated with lightweight insulation that only weighs 2lbs for the entire car to be covered. The 6 point racing harnesses keep you held in the Kirkey racing seats tight and secure. The steel bellhousing/scattershield replaces the factory-style aluminum bellhousing to keep your feet and legs safe in the event of a clutch failure at speed.
Keeping this pint-sized muscle car planted is a set of Koni adjustable coilovers in front and custom 200lb rating coilovers in the rear. Sticky tires with aftermarket rims on all 4 corners keep this beast as sure-footed as they come. The QuarterHorse chip comes with USB capabilities and can be tunes on the fly for any future upgrades. Options include: Auxilary input, Manual Convertible Top, Heated Seats, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Cloth Interior, and Alloy Wheels.
