1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft Racing


A modern spin on a timeless sports car, this fantastic Backdraft Cobra mixes a Ford Performance Coyote Boss 302 V8 with a tough Tremec 5-speed, BMW suspension components and crowd-pleasing aesthetics. If you’re in the market for a storied classic that’s destined to lead the pack, you’ve found your pride and joy! From inception, Backdraft cars are turnkey products developed and engineered to mimic the vintage appeal of authentic aluminum Cobras while handily out-performing pretty much anything on the street. The assembly of this roadster’s professionally finished body began with a steel-lined GRP molding that was hand-tweaked and gel coated on a full-size rotisserie rack. Once that coating was complete, the newly formed fuselage was smoothed by a seasoned fiberglass professional, baked in an even coat of primer and inspected top-to-bottom to ensure first-class quality. And, when quality control was cleared, brilliant Guardsman Blue 2-stage was detailed with Wimbledon White racing stripes, stamped with traditional roundels, splashed with yellow hash marks and polished to a head-turning shine. Featured in Ford’s second generation Boss 302, and officially named ‘Coyote Boss 302’, the car’s state-of-the-art V8 utilizes sinter-forged rods, forged aluminum pistons, CNC-ed aluminum heads and sodium-filled exhaust valves to turn stout 11 to 1 compression into roughly 420 horsepower. Behind that hot mod motor, a Tremec T5 5-speed spins a BMW limited-slip rear end. That drivetrain sends power through a BMW-sourced MacPherson strut front and fully independent rear suspension. Turns come courtesy of BMW-sourced power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops are provided by power-assisted discs. And at the corners, Halibrand-style wheels spin 265/35R18 Falken Azenis in front of 295/40R18 Falken Azenis. With its euro-spec chassis, modern 5-speed and Ford Performance engine, this Cobra is a blast to drive! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.
