For Sale: My 1964 Shelby 289 FIA Cobra manufactured by Unique Motorcars. I bought this car 4 years ago and do not know the history before that. The gentleman that I bought it from didn't know much about the car. The car is in great condition and hasn't been abused. I've been over every nook and cranny and can find no evidence of damage small or large. The car is in great condition. I have spent the last 4 years restoring and bringing this car up to a high standard. The 1965 Ford 289 engine and 1965 Ford 4 speed top loader transmission was professionally built by Monkey Wrench Automotive in Bend, OR. Monkey Wrench is our local hot rod shop and does incredible work. Monkey Wench went though the entire car and found no problems or defects. The black paint is in great shape. On a scale from 1-10, it's a 9 with only a few small rock chips in the normal places. The leather seats are in great shape with a great patina. The carpets are good but are showing some wear. I replaced the dash and gauges. I bought the dash from Unique Motorcars. It has the cut out under the steering wheel for more leg room. I covered the dash in bull hide and installed all new Stewart Warner gauges laid out as they would have been on the original 1964 289 FIA cars. The car is equipped with 5 point racing harnesses for both the driver and passenger. I located and installed functional aluminum front brake ducts that were made to original specs. They were very difficult to find costing $500. The wheels are true knock off wheels and the knock off spinners appear to be magnesium with "HALIBRAND" printed on them. I don't know if the spinners are original but they look cool. The tires and wheels are in great condition with little wear. This car drives and looks great. You can drive down the highway at 70 mph with one hand on the wheel. It steers and tracks great. The engine runs and sounds fantastic. The transmission shifts crisp and smooth with the Hurst Competition Shifter. The car is very fast and handles very well in the corners. If you are looking for great car that will last you forever, this is it. But be prepared to have everyone ask you about the car. even those who know their Cobra's will ask is it a real Cobra.
The car is equipped with:
-1965 Ford 289 325 HP 11 to 1 compression ratio that runs great on pump gas
-1965 Ford 4 Speed Top Loader transmission with Hurst Competition 4 speed shifter
