Backdraft Shelby Cobra

  • Year: 1965
  • Make: Backdraft
  • Model: Shelby Cobra
  • Submodel: Replica
  • Mileage: 3633

This 1965 Cobra Backdraft Racing replica has just over 3,500 miles since completion and is ready to hit the road. The 302 cubic inch engine was assembled by Ford HI-PO engine guru Keith Craft and provides awesome, quick-revving horsepower without the boat-anchor-weight of a big block. The handling of this car is flat out exhilarating and offers a "real" driving experience; not that heavily sedated feel of a modern sports car laden with cumbersome electrical-driver-assist-gadgetry. The car is easy to drive, yet has crushing, on-demand power that will keep you grinning all over town. This Backdraft Cobra offers fantastic value not only in terms power and handling characteristics, but it is built and ready to drive — now.
