Gateway classic cars of Nashville is pleased to digitally present
to you this 1965 Ford AC Cobra replica. This AC Cobra from
Backdraft Racing has been sprayed in British racing green and has
white racing stripes and tan leather interior. The Backdraft Cobra
has more leg room than any I have ever been in, at 6'2" I fit
comfortably. The AC car company in the U.K. produced a model named
the Ace, then along comes Carroll Shelby who took a look at the
tiny car and thought, that needs a V8! So, a Ford 260 was shoved
under the hood, then a 289, then a big block 390 and finally a 427
cubic inch FE side oiler. Now let's talk about the mechanics! This
Iconic edition Backdraft Cobra has the same size engine in it,
measuring out at 427 cubic inches of modern muscle pushing about
420 horsepower. The components under the bonnet are, a Weiand
stealth intake topped with a Holley double pumping four barrel. The
fires are lite with an MSD distributor and coil. The exhaust takes
the short trip from the heads to the tip through stainless steel
headers that push the exhaust through the side pipes, this combo
makes the most glorious noise! Backing this potent power plant is
Quick time bell housing and a T5 manual transmission. A Ford 8.8
rear axle has been sacrificed to make a fully independent rear
suspension. Disc brakes on all four corners, leather interior, huge
Nitto tires, I have to say it would be hard to make this car any
better. With just under 200 miles, that's two hundred miles this
car is ready to hit the open road on a sunny day and turn up the
heat! Options for this 1965 Brackdraft AC Cobra replica include:
Leather interior, Power brakes, Radial tires and a smile that will
not leave your face for weeks after your last drive. Should you
have questions give the Nashville showroom a call at 615 213 1800
or send us an email [email protected] held
pursuant to permit No. 19289 of department of licenses granted the
14th day of August 2015.
