1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft


This '65 Shelby Cobra Backdraft is one of the coolest Cobras I've seen come through our doors. This is such a performance-oriented car you'll have to read the long list of modifications and additions below. This Cobra even has A/C! Under the hood you'll find a Roush Windsor based 427ci Dart V8 Engine pared to a Tremec TKO 5-Speed manual transmission.

Look underneath the car and you'll find a highly detailed underbody with BMW suspension and drivetrain components throughout. A mini starter, explosion proof bell housing, oversized oil pan and much more can be seen.

The interior is one of the most unique and reasonably optioned I've seen, like I said before, it even has A/C! The bucket seats w/ racing harnesses help as you bomb through corners, an AC Cobra 5-speed floor shifter pokes through the floor, and the dashboard and dash pad show in excellent condition!

This particular cobra is titled as a 1965
