For sale is my 1965 Shelby Cobra – Superformance MK III (Fiberglass) w/ Shelby aluminum block FE 427 side oiler motor and MANY extras.
** Spring is here - you can own this "turn key" ready Cobra and drive it tomorrow -or- spend $100k and wait several months **
** Be cautious of a Cobra that is for sale with low miles - usually indicates many early problems and a poor build **

This 2008 Superformance Cobra MK III (SPO2814) was purchased from Dynamic Motor Sports of Ross, Ohio in April of 2008 and professionally completed in early 2009. It is what I consider to be the best combination of Indigo Blue with Wimbledon White stripes, Black leather interior, and 3” core ceramic-coated side pipes.
No expensive was spared in building this Cobra. I have over $100,000 in receipts. This Cobra was properly broken in w/proper adjustments made to the motor to include a recent Dyno Tune (see pic). This Cobra has had an oil change every 1000 miles (Joe Gibbs Racing – synthetic). Always securely stored in a climate-controlled garage. ** Registered as a 1965 Ford ** (see pic)
Under the hood is a new Shelby Aluminum block FE 427 side oiler motor professionally built by Performance Engineering of Ross, Ohio that cost $30,000 to complete (see pic) which was putting out 460 HP and 494 ft/lb TORQUE to the rear wheels (see Dyno pic). This dyno tune was done in Denver, Colorado (5600’ elevation w/91 Octane pump fuel). I moved to Texas last year (500’ elevation w/93 Octane pump fuel) and this Cobra is well into the mid 500’s in rear wheel HP and high 500’s in TORQUE. That’s a lot of power for a car that only weighs 2300 lbs w/driver.

This is a professionally built an properly maintained 1965 Shelby Cobra – Superformance that has over $100,000 invested and has only 5000 miles of adult/respectful driving (never been on the track – pics from COTA parking lot). It is a show car that can be driven on a daily basis. You won’t have any over heating or fouled plug problems with this Cobra. And it is SCARY fast. I have added a video just cut and paste the address (YouTube). I am happy to answer any questions a SERIOUS potential buyer may have. I’m not interested in trades – just someone that wants to own a Cobra that was built with no expense spared – all you have to do is turn the key.
