1965 Cobra 427
Superformance MKIII SP02152 is a brilliant “race red” roadster that was designed to make high octane memories with a friend. This MKIII features reliable V8 power, traditional styling elements and a rare set of double roll bars to create a unique driving experience.
The bright red car has a pair of bold white stripes, twin stainless steel roll bars, ceramic–coated headers, polished expansion tank and stainless-steel side pipes. It rides on 15” Halibrand-style wheels shod with new high performance tires.
Built by Olthoff Racing, the Ford Racing 408 cid stroker small block motor has Brodix aluminum heads that were CNC'd, Cobra air cleaner, a hydraulic roller cam and 10-1 compression. Under the stylish Cobra valve covers, the Ford V8 connects to a robust 5-speed TKO 600 manual transmission with a Jordan shifter to send all the power to a limited-slip IRS differential housing the gears.
This Superformance MKIII has Power Disc 4 Piston Wilwood Brakes and Bilstein coil-over shocks that maxmize the car's handling. The matching passenger stainless steel rollbar is frame-anchored for safety.

All openings, such as engine bay, trunk, and cockpit are wrapped around the steel subframe for increased strength and support. The interior is swathed in black leather with special touches like a 5-point driver side seatbelt, Superformance floor mats and a fire extinguisher.
