Factory Five MK 3.1 Roadster 427 Cobra Replica for Sale


Factory Five MK 3.1 Roadster 427 Cobra Replica for Sale

I have to be honest. I love this car, and on most levels, I hate to sell it. but because I don’t have as much opportunity to drive it here where we live, I feel like it’s time to let someone else enjoy it, it doesn’t seem fair to such an amazing car to spend most of it’s life in my shop. I’m hoping to find it just the right home!

This was a painstaking 6-year all-new-parts build with over 3000 hours into making it the best Cobra I could, this is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that will turn heads and bring joy to your soul! You will be hard pressed to find a vehicle of this awesome configuration and build quality anywhere.

Mileage: 1872

(about 500 miles since total completion of paint and body work)

Paint and Body:

This MK 3.1 car features custom paint with stripes under the hood and trunk, as well as rolled cockpit edges. The hood features handcrafted louvers and a “rivet on” hood scoop that has been extended, as well as a hidden release (I still have the handles which could be added functionally or decoratively.) Hidden trunk latches and dual roll bars, as well as windshield mounted mirrors and quick jack delete complete the very sleek look of the bodywork. The paintwork has been polished to perfection and ceramic coated.

Comes with a paint-matching hard top for those off-season drives.


The engine is a 347 stroker with stacked injection. You get the look of old-school Webers but with the advantage of custom mapping and fuel injection. Dyno tuned for maximum power in SoCal by one of the original Shelby team members. The computer will hold 2 tunes, so a second one can be added and controlled via a toggle. 8.8″ Ford rear end with 3.83 gearing, and a T-5 WC Transmission with Valeo high-performance clutch get the power to the ground.

Suspension and Braking:

With coil over adjustable shocks, 18:1 manual steering, power brakes, IFS, and an SAI kit, this car corners like it’s on rails and stops on a dime. 255 up front and 315 in rear Sumitomo tires give great traction and grip, and a custom front sway bar system keeps body roll to a minimum.


Highly customized interior featuring Bentley carpet, marine vinyl, rolled cockpit and door edges, and a fully custom rear bulkhead shelf make this a one-of-a-kind Cobra interior with all of the simple looks of the originals, only better. Autometer gauges, 4-point racing harnesses, custom pedals, enlarged foot boxes, and a 90,000 BTU heater are just some of the custom elements that went into this car’s interior. The wiring features a full Ron Francis wiring package, custom knobs, switches, and additional custom elements.

Includes custom car cover, extra build parts, and of course, life-long tech support and information from the builder.

Warranty, Financials, & Delivery:

This car is a custom, hand-built machine, and no warranty is provided. It is sold as is. In addition, this is an extremely fast car, and if you don’t know how to drive it, it will try to kill you. This is not the kind of car you buy for your 16 year old. I reserve the right to decide who buys the car, as it’s a part of me, so I want to make sure the right owner gets it.

Payment in full via wire transfer is required prior to shipping company pick up or other transportation. Basically, it needs to be paid for before it leaves my property. Insurance and proper title/plates are the responsibility of the new owner prior to taking possession.

I am willing to deliver the car in person (weather permitting). Buyer will be responsible for all fuel and travel costs to and from my location. I am also willing to fly to your location to meet the delivery driver and walk the new buyer through the car. Buyer is responsible for travel and airfare costs. I will also be available via video chat to do the virtual walk through.


This car was featured on a very popular YouTube channel in a short segment called “In the Shop.” You can see the video below:
