Award winning Cobra replica by Factory Five Racing

FOR SALE: 2007 Factory Five Racing Mark III. Factory Five Racing (FFR) is the premier company for the replica of the 1965 Shelby Cobra Roadster and has sold over 9,000 kits. The builder of this award winning sports car is Nick Smith. Nick is the primary individual responsible for the development of the curriculum which led to the three-day build school at Mott Community College, in 2000 in conjunction with FFR. Since that time there have been an estimated 2000 participants of the school, which is still in operation. In addition, Nick has built and/or assisted in the build of over thirty roadsters during the past eighteen years. With over forty years of automotive experience, Nick’s attention to detail is evident in the photographs. This led to the prestigious awards of “best kit car in show” and “best car in class” at the Detroit Autorama Custom Car Show in 2009.

This dream car was professionally built with the intent to provide a comfortable sports car ride while keeping in mind the convenience factor for service.
