For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to offer this sharp 1965 Shelby Cobra replica made by Backdraft Racing. This car is titled as a 2010 ASVE Cobra and is currently believed to be owned by its 2nd owner. The current owner obtained the car in 2015 and has enjoyed it since. Painted in a gloss Red with dual white racing stripes, this Cobra stands out in a crowd. The car features the single chrome roll bar and thin bumperettes. The wheels are Halibrand true knock off wheels which are the correct style for this car, and they are wrapped with Nitto tires. Powering this beast is a Roush 427R CID V8 engine mated to a Tremec 600 5 speed transmission with hydraulic clutch. Below is a completed breakdown of the motor specifications directly from Roush. It has an BMW limited slip independent rear end in it with 3:73 gears so you get the mix of quick take offs and highway cruising speed. You should be impressed with sound of this car escaping through the ceramic coated headers and side pipes with heatshields. The car has power disc brakes under all four corners. In cars like this heating issues can always come into play so an aftermarket aluminum radiator with electric fans were added to avoid temp problems. The suspension consists of BMW E36 independent front, adjustable shock absorbers and a front and rear sway bar. The custom Backdraft Racing chassis is made from top grade 2x4 inch rectangular steel tubing with 3mm wall thickness. It is reinforced with steel plates in the high stress areas and is fully powder coated as well. MOTOR SPECS: 550 HP, 9.5 deck height, Small block Iron 4-bolt block, Steel crank, H-beam rods, Forged pistons, Aluminum CNC ported heads, Roller cam, Single plane intake, Aluminum Intake Port, Aluminum Intake Manifold Config, etc. The cockpit of the car is done in Black and Red with dual heated bucket seats. The Black wool carpeting is edged with Black piping. You will find that the Backdraft version of these cars provides a more spacious cockpit which makes it a much more comfortable vehicle to drive. The dash is topped with AutoMeter vintage gauges and all of the controls. 4-point racing harnesses, a woodgrain steering wheel, a custom shifter.... the list just goes on and on.
