This unique 1965 Superformance Cobra is in a class of its own. This car was first assembled by the engineers at Ford Motor Company to debut their new 347 stroker V8. The original Ford Motor Company tag is still attached to the keys. After a number of years of ownership by Ford Motor Company, the Cobra was acquired by Chuck Watson of Watson Engineering, the man Ford trusted to build the Cobra Jet race cars. It also looks great in the classic blue paint with silver stripes. The interior is in impeccable condition. The leather seats and dash are without blemishes or cracks.
Under the hood, the build quality is immediately apparent. The engineers at Ford Performance went the extra mile to debut their engine in style. All of the wiring on this engine has been correctly loomed, the engine bay is full of AN fittings and stainless steel braided lines, and the underbody has fresh zinc hardware everywhere. The stroker 347 V8 under the hood is sporting Dynatek fuel-injected independent throttle bodies, basically every Ford performance part available, and is cooled by a large, dual core radiator. This is just a few of the many performance parts on this Cobra. This powerhouse of an engine is linked up to a Tremec T5 transmission that sends power to a Ford 8.8 IRS. Aluminum wheels with genuine center locking hubs, wrapped in BF Goodrich tires make sure all that power is put down on the tarmac. The original side pipe exhausts have been removed, and a custom rear exit exhaust has been installed. All it takes is one instance of burning your legs on a side-pipe exhaust to know how practical this modification is!
Carol Shelby was not interested in power alone; his designs prioritise handling as well as horsepower. He would be proud of what the Ford engineers achieved with this Superformance Cobra. Its stellar handling is in part due to tubular upper and lower control arms in the front and rear. The Cobra has been fitted with Bilstein shocks and H&R coil springs, and handles great through the corners. Wilwood four piston calipers and rotors are on all four corners. All around this is a fun, exciting driving experience with heritage that’s unmatched by most other Superformance Cobras. The only thing this vehicle needs is a new owner to turn the key!
