A real deal 1965 Shelby Cobra can break the bank, but a kit car replica has that vintage curbside appeal but is propelled by a potent modern powerhouse. Backdraft Racing is known for their kit car replicas built with amazing quality and attention to detail. Titled as a 2017 Backdraft, this 1965 Shelby Cobra only has 343 miles on the clock. Vanguard Motor Sales is pleased to offer this amazing '65 Shelby Cobra by Backdraft Racing.

Glance over its beautiful exterior blanketed in the Ford factory color of Deep Impact Blue adorned with black and red painted stripes. Adding to the Cobra's sinister appearance are the black-out components such as the side pipes, black roll bar, etc.

Powering this beast is a Roush 5.0-liter Coyote V8 crate engine that spits out 500-horsepower and 475 lb/ft of torque. A Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual transmission transfers power down to the grippy Nitto NT555 G2 tires through a limited-slip BMW independent rear axle. Glasspack-style side pipes play in symphony with the modern V8 for an unbeatable soundtrack. Rack and pinion steering make maneuvering this roadster easy as can be, and partially hiding behind 18-inch black knock-off style wheels are power disc brakes on all four corners. Independent suspension on the front and rear with a front sway bar have this Cobra handling on rails.

Just as beautiful as its glossy exterior is the interior with black leather and vinyl bucket seats with contrasting red diamond stitching, and red 4-point cam lock harnesses. In addition, the inside features a carbon fiber dashboard, AutoMeter carbon fiber gauges with black bezels, push button start, black steering wheel, and a red shifter ball. Peek under the car to an undercarriage that looks as if it has never seen the outside world. A custom Tonneau cover matches the vehicle perfectly and comes with the sale.
