    Type 65 Coupe For Sale - New Jersey

    Factory Five Type 65 Coupe, I.D. # F5R1000247CP, Mileage: 9,040 - Asking $62,000

    This car was built by Midwest Cobras and Classics as a show car to illustrate to potential clients what they could build for them. All new parts, no donor parts. The car is registered as a 1965 Shelby 2DR in New Jersey. You can use classic car insurance on it if you choose. This car is an amazing Factory Five inside and out. The engine bay looks great with the Weber look-a-like EFI system. I am the second owner of this car and am a retired mechanic. I’m getting too old for this type of car. The car is FAST, turns like it’s on rails and sounds amazing with the custom exhaust. Always garage kept, never seen cold, rain, salt, etc. The car turns heads everywhere it goes. Wins an award at every local show I take it to. This car has been shaken down thoroughly. Everything works great on it.

    · Russ Thompson rear window kit

    Please reach out with any questions! Thanks for looking!

    Nice car.
    I see you have a removable steering wheel with the RT turn signal. Some say that wasn’t possible. Any idea where that was sourced?
    Good luck with the sale!
