Check out this gorgeous one owner, 1965 Shelby Cobra by Backdraft Racing! The glossy Black Paint, Painted Silver Stripes, Gray Interior, Polished Stainless Steel Side Pipes, Polished Aluminum Knock Off Style Wheels, along with a Polished Roll Bar are sure to turn heads wherever you go! This Cobra was purchased directly from a Backdraft Racing Dealer in Florida by the first and only owner. Since it was purchased, it has always been covered and kept in the garage. There is only 976 miles on the car since new. It was very sparingly driven to maintain this car's brand new quality. Under the hood sits a Roush 342R V8 Crate Engine rated at 450hp. Power is sent to the BFGoodrich Radial T/A Tires through a Tremec TKO500 5 Speed Manual Transmission and a BMW Independent Rear Axle with Posi! This Cobra is an absolute blast to drive and there's plenty of power on tap too!

The interior of this 65' Cobra looks amazing and it's like new as well! Take a look inside to see this roadster sporting Bucket Seating, 4 Point Harnesses, Gray Upholstery throughout, Dark Gray Carpeting, beautiful Gauges, Wooden Steering Wheel, Floor Shifter, Floor Mats, along with Polished Components all over. The underside of this Cobra is also in amazing condition! Take a look underneath to see the nice condition of the Frame, Floors, New Aluminum Fuel Tank, Fuel and Brake Lines, Tremec Transmission, Roush V8, Struts up front, Disc Brakes all around, Rack and Pinion Steering, BMW Independent Front and Rear Suspension, Sway Bars front and rear, along with the Polished Side Pipes that sound amazing with the V8 up front!

This is one amazing Backdraft Cobra that needs nothing but a new owner. It won't last long, so call us today!
