For Sale: 1965 Shelby Cobra in Newfield, New Jersey

Vehicle Description

This Backdraft Roadster is not just a car; it's a masterpiece of performance and design, offering an exhilarating driving experience with a classic, vintage charm.

This particular Cobra replica, built in 2009 by Vintage Motorsports, pays homage to the legendary Terlingua Racing Team with removable vinyl decals that highlight its racing pedigree.

The engine's performance is thoroughly documented with an included dyno report, ensuring you can appreciate every ounce of its raw power.

Mated to this formidable engine is a 5-speed Tremec manual transmission, delivering smooth, precise shifts that make every drive a true adventure.

The 4-wheel power disc brakes ensure you can harness all that power with confidence and control. The attention to detail continues inside the cockpit, featuring VDO gauges that offer precise and reliable readouts, allowing you to monitor the car's performance effortlessly.

Aesthetically, the Cobra doesn't disappoint. The ceramic-coated headers and side pipes not only look stunning but also enhance the vehicle's performance and longevity. Safety is paramount, with a driver-side roll bar and seatbelt harness ensuring peace of mind while you unleash the car's potential. For those moments when you need to protect the interior, a cockpit cover is included.

The documentation accompanying this Cobra replica is as impressive as the car itself. An original build/manual binder is included, providing a comprehensive history and technical details of the vehicle. Titled as a 2009 Cobra, it holds a clean New Jersey title and is emission exempt in NJ, making ownership straightforward and hassle-free.

In summary, this 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica is more than just a nod to a bygone era; it's a celebration of automotive excellence.
