1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft


Check out this gorgeous Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra! This Cobra is an RT4 build (Greg accidentally says MK4 in the video) with only 405 Miles! The previous owner of this roadster enjoyed cruising it around town on beautiful days, grabbing attention from all around! Take a look at the beautiful Avio Blue Exterior Paint with Silver and Black Stripes, 18'' Aluminum Knock-Off Style Wheels, Hood Scoop, Fender Heat Extractors, Quick-Jack Bumpers, Vintage Racing Style Fuel Door, along with the Polished Roll Bar, Windshield Frame, and Stainless Steel Side Pipes! Inside, this Cobra is sporting a Push Button Start, Leather Bucket Seating with Sabelt 4-Point Cam-Locking Harnesses, Black Carpeting, a Wood and Polished Aluminum 3-Spoke Steering Wheel, Factory Dashboard Gauges, Glove Box, Polished Floor Shifter, and ample room in the Carpeted Trunk!

Under the hood sits an Iconic 427ci V8 Crate Engine with Edelbrock E-Street Aluminum Cylinder Heads, an Edelbrock Performer RPM Aluminum Intake Manifold, and a Holley Street Avenger 770 CFM 4-Barrel Carburetor sitting on top! This powerplant is also fitted with Ceramic Coated Exhaust Headers, a Ford Racing Aluminum Water Pump, Billet Serpentine Pulley Setup, Polished PowerMaster Alternator, and an MSD Pro-Billet Distributor, Blaster SS Coil, and 6AL Ignition Box! Power is sent to the rear tires through a Tremec T5 5-Speed Manual Transmission and a Ford 8.8'' Independent Rear End with 3.55:1 Gears and Limited Slip! Driving this Cobra is nothing short of a thrill and you can steer with precision thanks to the Rack and Pinion Steering! Nitto Tires grip the pavement and 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes provide stopping power! The underside of this Cobra also looks brand new like the rest of the car! Take a look underneath to see the nice condition of the Frame, Fuel Tank, Removable Transmission Crossmember, and the Front and Rear Independent Suspension!

This Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra is a stunning ride that's absolutely ready for your local car show, cruise, or track day! This roaster's Assembly Binder is also traveling along with it.

Vanguard Motor Sales started 25 years ago as a part time hobby. Within the last decade we have become the Motor City's ultimate classic car, muscle and street rod dealership, both locally and internationally. Vanguard Motor Sales is an experienced seller with integrity, and our 100% positive feedback on eBay supports that! Click the "eBay Feedback" button on the home page of our website, or the number next to our name on eBay(vanguardmotorsales), and you will be able to read all of the positive feedback we've received over the last 10 years!

Our inventory is always stored indoors! We have a brand new, state-of-the-art, 30,000 square foot facility that is open to the public. We would love for you to stop by and see us! We are located 20 minutes away from Detroit Metro Airport, and would be happy to pick you up and drop you off if you fly in. New cars arrive daily, and our inventory is always changing.

Vanguard Motor Sales owns all of our inventory, we are not a consignment dealership. You are dealing directly with the owner of the vehicle, not a middle man. Every car we purchase is of the utmost quality. Our mission is to exceed your expectations!

If you are interested in this car, or any of our other 125+ cars, don't wait for the auction to end on eBay. Call us immediately! You may lose out if you wait! Remember, our showroom is open to the public. When a walk-in customer puts a deposit on a car we reserve the right to close the eBay listing before the auction ends. If you think this car is "The One", we can end the auction by adding a "Buy It Now" to the auction for the reserve price. If an auction ends and the bids do not meet the reserve price, we will continue to relist it until it sells. Do not hesitate to contact Tom 7 days a week!

We take over 100 photographs of the car, as well as a high definition video, so you know exactly what to expect. We encourage you to hire an independent inspector to check out the car, prior to purchase or bidding. We have a hoist available for views of the undercarriage, and our mechanics are available to speak with if you have any questions.

Vanguard Motor Sales has sold classic and muscle cars to customers in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, France, Norway, the UAE and many other countries. We are experts in over seas shipping and handle all of the details. The shipping companies we work with are insured so your vehicle will be safe and secure during transport. We ship all of our vehicles enclosed, so they leave our shop clean and they are delivered to your driveway clean.

We've built our reputation on selling high quality cars honestly and fairly. We have up-front, no haggle pricing! Call Tom today, and let Vanguard Motor Sales park your dream in your driveway!
