1965 Shelby Cobra Description

1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft


This '65 Cobra was built by Custom Cars/Backdraft Racing in Boynton Beach, Florida and serviced at Vintage Motorsports in North Haven, Connecticut. This thing has a Roush 427R V8 engine under the hood, producing a whopping 550 hp in a car that weighs only about 2,000lbs (break-neck speeds, literally!). What's even cooler is this Cobra only has about 11,500 miles on it, so it's barely broken in!

Backdraft Binder full of build info and specs is included in sale!
