1965 Daytona Coupe Superformance Daytona Coupe
The Superformance Coupe or Superformance Shelby Daytona Coupe is the only licensed continuation of the original Shelby Daytona coupe racing cars of the 1960s. The body was designed by Pete Brock (who designed the original race cars) and a chassis designed by Bob Negstad (who designed the original race chassis), it is viewed by many to be the most authentic modern continuation of the original 6 Shelby Daytona coupes. It is the only Shelby Daytona coupe approved and licensed by Shelby and the only Shelby Daytona coupe aside from the original half-dozen cars eligible for the Shelby Registry.
The car has a front mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, with a 55R/45F weight distribution.
Roush Performance was the official supplier of engines for the coupe, and the majority of American owners choose a Roush engine based on a 351 Windsor block. Common displacements chosen for the car are 392, 402, and 427 cubic inches. Buyers also had a choice between five- and six-speed transmissions, the latter with a relatively wide choice of gear ratios. The Superformance Coupe is an ideal compromise between a historically correct replica and a car suitable for the modern sports car buyer.
SPC0143 is painted in Superformance Guardsmen Blue with Wimbledon White Stripes and Rear Half Cove. Then a Polished Roush 427SR was shoehorned into the engine bay and mated to a Tremec TKO 5 Speed Manual Transmission. The most sought after drivetrain combination for the Gen 1 Superformance Daytona Coupes.
SPC0143 was also completed with a Alpine Stereo System, Fire Extinguisher, and Remote Battery Terminals.
SPC0143 is registered as a 1965 and has only 957 miles.
SPC0143 is available for $139,950.
