FFR FIA Cobra Prototype...1 of 1 Built...
This is the first and only 289 FIA Factory Five Cobra produced. It was built in conjunction with Factory Five Racing as a company test bed for possible future 289 FIA model production. Few details were spared in trying to make this marketing show piece one of the best and most accurate FIA replicas anywhere.
The car was built to be very correct with a true 1965 289CID and 4-speed topload, original Aviad Road Race oil pan from a ’66 GT350, real cobra emblems, Trigo pin drive wheels, Raydot mirrors, correct FIA dash layout, and Lucas 2-speed wipers along with many other period correct touches. The car also has aluminum treatment under the wheel wells, under the hood, in the engine compartment, in the air inlet in the nose, in the air inlet on the hood, in the trunk, and under the rear of the car...This aluminum trim is visible under all areas of the car giving it the appearance of an original aluminum Cobra...Great attention to detail that you will not find in 95% of other Cobras on the market...In addition, this Cobra is correctly registered in GA as a 1964 Ford Shelby Cobra...
It was judged to be one of the top FFR Cobras around when it took home Best in Show Roadster at the big 2010 Factory Five Racing Open House car show held at the company’s headquarters in Wareham, MA. It was then judged to be one of the best FIA replicas of any make when it took home a 1st place trophy at the S.A.A.C. Sunday Show of Shelby’s held at Lime Rock Raceway (a large Shelby show filled with top builders including lots of ERA Cobras).
With just over 300 miles since the build it remains in great condition. This is a well built and gorgeous tribute that will always be unique as the first ever FFR 289 FIA built and it also has been judged as a top quality replica in its show wins against other fantastic builds. Paint quality is superb...All stripes and gumballs are buried under several coats of clear...Fresh color sand and buff...Paint is like glass...
