1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft


Check out this gorgeous Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra! This Cobra is equipped with Backdraft's Big and Tall Package and it also has an Extended Footbox, giving you extra room in the driver's seat! With only 265 Miles, this roaster is practically new and it looks new as well! Take a look at the glossy Guardsman Blue Exterior Paint with Painted Wimbledon White Stripes and Meatball, Removable Tonneau Cover, 18'' Knock-Off Style Aluminum Wheels with Goodyear Tire Graphics, Hood Scoop, Stainless Steel Driver Roll Bar, Quick-Jack Bumperettes, along with the Polished Stainless Steel Side Pipes! Inside, this Cobra is sporting a Push Button Start, Black Leather Bucket seating with a Low Profile Driver's Seat (sits lower that stock), Sabelt 4-Point Cam-Locking Harnesses, Black Carpeting, 3-Spoke Wood and Polished Aluminum Steering Wheel, AutoMeter Dashboard Gauges, Polished Floor Shifter, and Door Panel Storage Pockets. The pedals have also been modified to give them a larger footprint (easier to find and push with larger feet) while simultaneously giving you more room for your feet! The Carpeted Trunk provides ample room for all of your car show or weekend essentials!

Powering this Cobra is an Iconic 427ci Stroker V8 Crate Engine with Edelbrock E-Street Aluminum Cylinder Heads, an Edelbrock Performer RPM Aluminum Intake Manifold, Holley Street Avenger 770 CFM 4-Barrel Carburetor, MSD Ignition System, and Ceramic Coated Exhaust Headers! The engine bay of this roadster looks incredible and it's fitted with polished components throughout and Aluminum Fluid Reservoirs! Power is put to the pavement through a Tremec T5 5-Speed Manual Transmission and a BMW Independent Rear End with 3.73:1 Gears and Posi! Driving this '65 is nothing short of a thrill and it's also equipped with Power Rack and Pinion Steering and 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes! The underside of this Cobra looks new as well! Take a look underneath to see the clean condition of the Frame, Removable Transmission Crossmember, Fuel Tank, and the Independent Front and Rear Suspension with Coilovers!

This Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra is truly a stunning ride that was built for show and go! This roadster's build binder and a set of spare keys are also traveling along with it. Any collector or enthusiast would love to own this Cobra and it won't last long!
