1965 Daytona Coupe Kirkham
*2013 Kirkham Daytona Coupe 500HP with Paddle-shifted Automatic. Available for $285,000.
*Kirkham Motorsports says that their 289 Coupe is the ultimate evolution of the leaf spring chassis car. The trellis style backbone stiffing tubes provide a big torsional rigidity improvement over the original Roadster ladder style chassis. The stiffer chassis gives the 289 Coupe more consistent handling over the roadster in racing. The Coupe is also aerodynamically superior to the 289 Roadsters. With the full length belly pan and the Kamm style tail the Coupe slices much more cleanly through the air.
*Visually compelling in beautifully polished aluminum bodywork with brushed racing stripes from front to rear and contrasting black upholstery, this 2013 Kirkham 289 Coupe Aluminum Body is built for sheer driving pleasure and performance. Equipped with the 15-inch FIA-style Pin Drive wheels and Goodyear period-correct tires.
*Power is delivered by a hot Dart/Ford 363ci aluminum small-block V8 engine equipped with a Holley double-pumper 4-barrel carburetor and long-tube headers matched to a Ford C4 automatic transmission for relaxed cruising as desired.
*Other features include power-assisted brakes and even air conditioning for all-weather comfort. Gold foil heat insulation repels engine heat from the Daytona's footwells. This Daytona features the iconic original looks of Shelby's Cobra-derived, Peter Brock-designed Daytona Coupes that scored America's first FIA GT-class World Championship in 1965 with Kirkham's renowned construction quality and modern high-performance wizardry.
*VIN: KL13BSLD0803 marks a thrilling find at the price of $285,000
