It has all the right pieces, including a performance-built V8, strong five-speed, fully-independent suspension, and a race-ready style over every inch. It's such an authentic track star that Carroll Shelby signed the dash!

The Superformance MkIII cars are the only Cobra replicas built under license from Shelby. That's why they have such an authentic appearance. Of course, it only gets better with one that was completed in the classic blue with white racing stripe livery. There are even roundels for you to put your racing number. In fact, this one has all the right rack-ready components, like the quick jack bumpers, stainless steel roll hoop, proper side pipes, and Halibrand-style wheels with proper knock-off hubs. So while plenty of Cobras are attractive, this one is irresistible for having the kind of attitude and appearance of a car that knows how to dominate the racetrack.

Part of being a correct car means a competition-style interior. That's why you'll find authentic pieces inside, including leather bucket seats, racing belts, and a wood and chrome sports steering wheel. You'll even love the details, like how the gearstick is correctly bent forward and the full set of Smiths gauges with the reversed speedo in the center. And of course, Carroll Shelby's actual signature is on the glovebox! But while some Cobras have been done for some sunny track day afternoons, you can tell this one has a few of the right extra to offer you more. The full convertible top w/side curtains and the heater are the kind of things you want when you're the kind of person who actually drives yourself to the track first thing in the morning. This also hints at the level of usefulness that makes this one so unique.

Under the hood is a Ford Motorsports crate 351ci V8. But that long Roush air topper also signals that there has been a deeper investment in power. The masters at Roush and Time Machines Motorsports have created a 358 cubic-inch powerhouse that's includes a Crower camshaft, Crane Fireball HI-6 digital ignition, Cobra Valley HotSwap setup, MSD Pro-Billet distributor, ribbed Cobra valve covers, Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap intake, and topped with a Quick Fuel 750 CFM Black Diamond Q-Series four-barrel carburetor. And the header-fed side pipes love to announce this performance build. All this power is at your command thanks to the a newer Tremec TKO600 close-ratio five-speed manual transmission that's built for power, including a McLeod scatter shield. It's a strong motor that knows how to run right. That's because this is a one-owner machine that has been driven year-round since it was built in 2002. And what you should really take away from that is that this one was setup and maintained to be more than just a weekend tinkering project. She loves to run! Superformance builds a strong chassis, and to that they added exactly what you want in an all-around performance driver. This includes heavy duty mounts for the fully independent suspension, sway bars front & rear, QA1 shocks, adjustable coilovers, and Wilwood disc brakes at each corner.

There's so much more to go over on this serious performance build, that you should really call for all the details. We'll even go through the paperwork, including the build receipts, dealer invoice, original bill of sale, owner's manual, maintenance records, service manuals, and Shelby certification. Big power, great control, and a strong running total package headline this Cobra, but it's the details that will really clinch it for you. So don't let this distinct legend slip away. This vehicle is titled as a 2005 Custom. Call now!

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on . That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $199 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel offers/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning buyer, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing.

We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase. CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.
