Cobra 1965

Title Status --
Exterior Color Candy Brandywine
Interior Color Black


When you lay eyes on this 1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft, its Candy Brandywine skin dazzles under the sun, complemented by crisp white stripes that run the length of its classic roadster body. It\'s an icon, reborn with a flair that demands attention. Clad in PPG tri-coat Volcanic red paint, valued at a cool $8,500, it has a shine that\'s hard to miss, even on the cloudiest of days. This Cobra sits proudly on 15\" Shelby Cobra rims, the front tires measuring 235/60R15 and the rear a wider 295/50R15, ensuring a stance that\'s as aggressive as its namesake. The side pipes, chrome roll bar, and sharp exterior chrome bumper accentuate its racing pedigree, making it a spectacle of engineering and design brilliance.
Inside this masterpiece, the story continues with an interior that\'s both luxurious and race-ready. Black leather bucket seats, adorned with contrast stitching, cradle you in comfort. The carbon fiber dash houses Autometer gauges, including a reversed speedometer, paying homage to the Cobra\'s racing traditions while embracing modernity. A woodgrain Shelby steering wheel offers a tactile connection to the road, and the Sony AM/FM CD player radio with Bluetooth capability ensures that the soundtrack to your journey is always at your fingertips. Crow 4 point harness racing seat belts and a neatly placed fire extinguisher between the seats underscore the car\'s racing DNA, blending safety with style.
Underneath its stunning exterior lies a beast waiting to be unleashed. The 427 stroker V8 engine, a masterpiece of engineering, delivers power that\'s both raw and refined. Fuel is fed through a Holley 750 carburetor sitting atop a high-rise Edelbrock RPM Chrome plated intake, all sparked to life by a Billet MSD distributor and coil pack. Power is transmitted through a Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual transmission, complemented by a McLeod clutch assembly, ensuring every shift is as smooth as silk. The roar from the side pipes is music to any gearhead\'s ears, a symphony produced by long tube headers. The fully independent suspension, a hallmark of the Backdraft build, guarantees a ride that\'s as engaging as it is smooth, promising an experience that\'s unforgettable.
