1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft


Check out this gorgeous Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra! This Cobra is an RT4 build (Greg accidentally says MK4 in the video) with only 405 Miles! The previous owner of this roadster enjoyed cruising it around town on beautiful days, grabbing attention from all around! Take a look at the beautiful Avio Blue Exterior Paint with Silver and Black Stripes, 18'' Aluminum Knock-Off Style Wheels, Hood Scoop, Fender Heat Extractors, Quick-Jack Bumpers, Vintage Racing Style Fuel Door, along with the Polished Roll Bar, Windshield Frame, and Stainless Steel Side Pipes! Inside, this Cobra is sporting a Push Button Start, Leather Bucket Seating with Sabelt 4-Point Cam-Locking Harnesses, Black Carpeting, a Wood and Polished Aluminum 3-Spoke Steering Wheel, Factory Dashboard Gauges, Glove Box, Polished Floor Shifter, and ample room in the Carpeted Trunk!

Under the hood sits an Iconic 427ci V8 Crate Engine with Edelbrock E-Street Aluminum Cylinder Heads, an Edelbrock Performer RPM Aluminum Intake Manifold, and a Holley Street Avenger 770 CFM 4-Barrel Carburetor sitting on top! This powerplant is also fitted with Ceramic Coated Exhaust Headers, a Ford Racing Aluminum Water Pump, Billet Serpentine Pulley Setup, Polished PowerMaster Alternator, and an MSD Pro-Billet Distributor, Blaster SS Coil, and 6AL Ignition Box! Power is sent to the rear tires through a Tremec T5 5-Speed Manual Transmission and a Ford 8.8'' Independent Rear End with 3.55:1 Gears and Limited Slip! Driving this Cobra is nothing short of a thrill and you can steer with precision thanks to the Rack and Pinion Steering! Nitto Tires grip the pavement and 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes provide stopping power! The underside of this Cobra also looks brand new like the rest of the car! Take a look underneath to see the nice condition of the Frame, Fuel Tank, Removable Transmission Crossmember, and the Front and Rear Independent Suspension!

This Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra is a stunning ride that's absolutely ready for your local car show, cruise, or track day! This roaster's Assembly Binder is also traveling along with it. Any collector or enthusiast would love to own this Cobra and it won't last long! Call us today before it's gone!

Built in 2020 (Greg accidentally says 2000 in the video).
