1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft


Check out this gorgeous Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra! This Cobra has only 5,655 miles and it still looks new inside and out! The previous owner loved cruising this roadster around town on nice days, turning heads every time! Take a look at the Speedway Blue Exterior Paint with Painted White Racing Stripes, 17'' Chrome Knock-Off Style Wheels, Polished Driver Roll Bar, Hood Scoop and Fender Heat Extractors, Custom Headlights, Quick-Jack Racing Bumpers, and the Stainless Steel Side Pipes! Inside, this Cobra is sporting Bucket Seating with Black Leather Upholstery, 4-Point Racing Harnesses, Black Carpeting, Wood and Polished Aluminum 3-Point Steering Wheel, VDO Dashboard Gauges, Door Panel Side Pockets, a Polished Floor Shifter, and a nicely Carpeted Trunk!

Under the hood sits a Craft Performance 410ci Stroker V8 Crate Engine that's making 540 Horsepower! This powerplant is fitted with Brodix Aluminum Cylinder Heads, Ceramic Coated Exhaust Headers, an Edelbrock Performer RPM Intake Manifold, Quick Fuel 4-Barrel Carburetor, Billet Aluminum Pulleys, and an MSD Pro-Billet Distributor, Coil, and 6AL Ignition Box! An Aluminum Radiator paired with a Electric Cooling Fan keeps this Cobra running nice and cool. Power is sent to the rear tires through a Tremec TKO600 5-Speed Manual Transmission and a BMW Independent Rear End with approximately 3.46:1 Gears and Posi! This Cobra drives wonderfully and there's plenty of power on tap! 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes allow you to stop this '65 with ease and you can turn corners with precision thanks to the Manual Rack and Pinion Steering! The undercarriage of this Cobra is in terrific condition like the rest of the car! Take a look underneath to see the beautiful condition of the Frame, Floors, Polished Aluminum Fuel Tank, Fuel and Brake Lines, and the Front and Rear Independent Suspension!

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!
