This iconic roadster is brand new with just 100 miles on the odometer!

There is perhaps no American car that is more visceral than a Shelby Cobra, but owning an original is expensive enough to rule out frequent cruises. That's were replicas come into play offering the styling and performance of a Cobra with a lower price and more modern ride quality ideal for driving around town. This 1965 Shelby Cobra replica being sold by Farland Classic Restoration of Englewood, California is a perfect specimen, and this car is looking for a new home.

This Classic Roadsters-made Shelby Cobra replica was built in 2016, but it's still brand new with just 100 miles showing on the odometer. Visually, this Cobra looks phenomenal with its Guardsman Blue paint job that is topped with a pair of white racing stripes, and the roadster's style is complemented by offset replica Shelby wheels wrapped in 235/60R15 up front and 295/50R15 at the rear. Inside, the gray interior features four-point harnesses for added safety.

Under the hood, there's a 302 CID V8 mated to a Tremec T-5 five-speed manual transmission, and power is sent to the rear wheels through a Ford 8.8-inch rear end. To make this replica a little easier to drive on the road, the wheelbase is nine inches longer than a production Cobra and it's six inches wider as well. This will certainly help to create a roomier cabin, and it should provide for a more manageable driving experience. Four wheel disc brakes finish off the modern platform components.
