Description of this Shelby Daytona 1965

While working for Carroll Shelby, Peter Brock designed an absolute road racing monster for the 1963 season, the Daytona Coupe. Originally called the "Daytona Car," it was designed and built to take on the Ferrari GTO which had a sleeker design and was beating Shelby's Cobra at high speeds. After the Daytona placed 4th at Sebring overall and came in 1st in the GT class, Ford got behind Shelby in an effort to beat Enzo Ferrari and his Ferrari GTOs. In 1964, the car was very competitive with Gurney and Bondurant behind the wheel. With the season wrapping up and Ferrari ahead by just a few points, the final race at Monza would be the deciding factor, however, the race was canceled, leaving a great racing "what-if?"

As a wonderful edition to the Superformance line, the Daytona Coupe is a redesigned street version of the original race car. Leading the charge was the original designer, Peter Brock. The street car features a slightly larger body than the original car, has a re-engineered suspension that was overseen by Roush Engineering, as well as many modern upgrades and creature comforts. The result is an incredible car that combines modern technology with stunning race car looks. Finished in Red with White stripes, this Shelby Cobra Daytona has just 6,500 miles since completion. Standard options include a tubular space frame, independent coil over suspension, period correct gauges, 4 wheel disc brakes, aluminum radiator, stainless fuel tank, bucket seats, dual exhaust, power steering, power brakes, theft deterrent system, power door locks and AC.

Additional options on this car include LeMans twin stripes, painted rear cove, sound deadening, Hi Fi stereo, heat dissipation, and ceramic coated side pipes.

The engine is the Roush Performance 427R. This fantastic motor uses a Dart 4-bolt main block with big cubic inches and loads of dependability. The motor also uses forged pistons, rods and crank. The motors use Roush cylinder heads with premium stainless steel valves with 2.08" intake and 1.60" exhaust. The cam is a Roush hydraulic roller with a double roller timing chain and gear set. The carburetor is a Roush-tuned Holley 770 CFM with vacuum secondaries and an electric choke. The accessory drive system runs on Roush aluminum under-drive pulleys.

As with all Roush motors, they are hot-tested and dyno tested to verify power. The transmission is the optional T-56 Magnum, the premier aftermarket 6-speed transmission. The T-56 weighs just 135lbs dry and can withstand 700 lbs ft of tq. It has wonderful short and crisp action and offers a nice balance of strength and ease-of-use.

Despite being built new, Shelby Daytonas are relatively hard to come by. This one took over a year from the time is was ordered, and some can take longer as the factory will only build the cars when it has sufficient orders.
