For sale in our Chicago showroom is this well built 1965 Factory Five AC Cobra replica. Powered by the legendary 427 side-oiler and coupled to a robust Top Loader 4-speed manual, this replica is about as true to form as one can find. The side-oiler engines are known for their ability to perform under the rigorous conditions of racing very well. Because many of them were used for that very purpose, many of these blocks have been blown up over the years, and few remain in good usable shape. This example has been treated to a set of aluminum cylinder heads under an aluminum intake, and then crowned with 2 4-barel carburetors making this one mean machine. Moving behind the engine is an NHRA approved bell housing to keep you safe, should there be a clutch failure. Selecting the gears is a breeze, thanks to the Hurst Competition shifter.
Twisting the key fires up the legendary power plant, causing an authoritative rumble to blossom from the side pipes sending chills down your spine. This monster gives chills to anyone daring enough to step inside. A quick twitch of the throttle will throw you back in your seat while this beautifully recreated classic careens down the road winding up the speedometer with ease, only pausing to shift gears.
