"rumbling raw power!" AS OF MARCH 30, 2018 SALE PENDING
In 1965, I had the opportunity to ride in an original Silver & Gray Shelby AC Cobra 427 CI /425 HP, that's all it took & I was hooked!
This Backdraft Factory Built 427 CI /530 HP with long list of extensive classic style upgrades, reminds me of that original ride. Turn the key and the big 427 mill rumbles to life, shaking the car with oozing raw power. Simply stated, a Shelby Cobra is like no other sports car, nor has it ever been matched to this day. This ride get's a thumbs up wherever it appears...GUARANTEED!!!
With all these options and upgrades, this Backdraft Cobra would cost well over $70,000. to duplicate.
