***  Currently entertaining all REASONABLE offers. Low-ball offers will be ignored. Feel free to email me with any questions or offers. This Cobra has a small block 351w punched out to 427CI produced by Roush Racing. Make sure you keep that in mind when comparing to other Cobras for sale. This one has the big burly top of the line 550 Horse Power motor. I can also have the car delivered to Backdraft Racing at my expense should the buyer decide to have Backdraft perform their White Glove end to end inspection. The cost for the inspection is $450. 00 to be paid by the buyer. This will provide additional peace of mind so the buyer will know they are getting a 100% clean car.  The car is also for sale locally outside of e-bay so I reserve the right to remove the listing at any time.  
Up for sale is my prized 1965 Backdraft Shelby Cobra SC #904 (2009 Build date). Free and clear title ready to sell. No accidents no drama ! This car is fully sorted out and comes with no stories or headaches. It is powered by an incredible Roush Racing 427R V8 mated to a Tremec TKO 600 5 Speed manual transmission. This particular engine dynoed at a very healthy 537 hp and 518 ft / lbs of torque. dyno sheet will be included. Combine that much power with a car that weighs 2300 lbs and you can imagine what a blast it is to drive this car. I have personally added a large number of upgrades which are all listed below. I have taken the time to make this car as reliable and trouble free as possible. Most of the upgrades below will have to be done to one of these cars at some point or another. Save yourself the trouble. money. and time. and buy this car which already has everything on it taken care of. Last year the car was at Backdraft Racing where I spent $4728. 00 in upgrades and maintenance on the car. I have the receipt for this service visit and can provide it upon request. The car has a little over 5k trouble free miles on the clock. This car turns heads everywhere it goes. It is not for the faint of heart and definitely not for folks that do not like getting a ton of attention.   Simply get in the car and drive. Comes with 2 sets of ignition keys. gas cap. as well as keys for the hood and trunk latches. I will also include 2 car covers with the sale as well as extra belts and any other spare parts I may have laying around the garage. You will not find a nicer and more sorted out Backdraft Cobra. This car would cost over $75. 00 to replicate today including all of the upgrades I have added which are listed below. Car is always kept on battery tender which will be included with the sale. Feel free to email me with any questions or if you want more pictures. This car has never been raced or beat on. It is mostly my weekend cruiser with the occasional stomp of the go fast pedal to get the blood and adrenaline pumping.
