NEWS: Factory Five Racing Cobra Heads to Pebble Beach on Epic Drives

By Jason Udy - August 17, 2014
Factory Five Racing Type 65 Mark IV Roadster On Epic Drives
With the simple recipe of a large engine and lightweight car, the Shelby Cobra instantly became one of the most iconic cars in history. The Shelby Cobra has been replicated by the aftermarket and on this episode of Epic Drives; host Arthur St. Antoine drives a Factory Five Racing Type 65 Mark IV Roadster from Tacoma, Wash. to Pebble Beach, Calif.
Although the Mark IV Roadster is powered by a modern 425-hp 5.0-liter Coyote V-8, the interior and exterior detailing are true to that of the original Cobra. Antoine’s first stop is the LeMay America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, which houses more than 3500 classic cars making it the largest auto museum in North America. Next, the host heads to Mt. Rainier – a 14.410 foot snow-covered volcano.
After a stop in Seaside, Ore. for some history and a bite to eat, St. Antoine boards a Cessna 172 airplane to get a better view of the scenery. Other stops along the way to Pebble Beach include Crater Lake, Ore. and Eureka, Napa, and San Francisco, Calif.
Check out the latest episode of Epic Drives to learn more about the North West and see and hear the Cobra replica travel from Tacoma, Wash. to Monterey, Calif.
