1965 Cobra 427
Painted in the ultra-rare 10th-anniversary color scheme of Dark Silver with Light Silver stripes, MKIII SP03061 is one of the most fantastic cars ever to roll out of Superformance. This MKIII's powerful V8 and handsome styling elevate it to rock star status on the track, the street and at any car show.
The roadster was ordered directly from the factory in 2011 and finished by Olthoff Racing of North Carolina. The array of desirable factory options proves no expense was spared on this build.
Stainless steel is lavished throughout, including stone screens on the radiator and oil screen, roll bar, bumperettes, hoops, quick jacks and the overflow tank. This Superformance MKIII has ceramic-coated headers and side pipes, as well as pin drive wheels with knockoffs wrapped in Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires.
SP03061 has a 427 Roush Stroker SR engine with 520 horsepower and 529 pounds of torque coupled with a TKO 600 5-Speed transmission. Rare powertrain options include special Roush valve covers, braided stainless throughout, a Holley 750 Ultra double pumper carb with jet extensions for the rear bowl, MSD Ignition, Holley 100 fuel pre-filter, Quick Time Bell housing, Ford racing clutch, lightweight flywheel and a ZF rear-end from Australia with 3:43 gear ratios. The roadster also sports power steering, power Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes and a locking gas cap.
Inside the cockpit, SP03061 features a wooden AC Cobra steering wheel, along with period correct gauges in the period correct dash layout including the iconic reverse speedometer. The doors are secured by original-style carriage latches. All openings, such as the engine bay, trunk and cabin are wrapped around the steel subframe for increased strength and support. The car features sumptuous black leather seats with RJS racing seatbelts and the optional glove box.
