If you’re a car enthusiast in search of a new collector’s item, then you’re in luck. My family has been in the business of collector cars since 1960, and at the Volo Auto Museum, we have a few hundred of the most exciting collector cars all under one roof. These cars have been hand-picked from around the country and are all available for sale in one location. Today, I want to introduce you to one of our most exciting offerings, the Backdraft Racing 1965 Shelby Cobra.

First and foremost, the Backdraft Racing Shelby Cobra is a hand-built car, originating from South Africa. This is one of the best fit and finish kits that you can buy in today’s standards. The car comes completely assembled from their factory, minus the drivetrain, so you have the opportunity to hand customize it to your liking. If you’re looking for a unique, high-quality collector car, this is the one for you.

This particular Shelby Cobra has just under 2500 original miles on it and is in excellent shape, both inside and out. The car is finished in the classic indigo blue with dual white racing stripes, giving it that timeless and iconic look. The glossy finish of the stripes allows you to glide your hands smoothly across them, giving you a sense of quality and attention to detail right from the start.

Moving on to the wheels, the car features 18-inch knockoff wheels with reproduction BF Goodrich all-season tires. The stainless and chrome finishes are in great condition, with no pitting or curb rash. The overall condition of the car is impressive, with just a few minor nicks or stone chips in the paint. The quick jack bumpers and bezels on the turn signals and brake lamps are all in excellent shape, adding to the overall appeal of the car.

Underneath the hood, the Backdraft Cobra doesn’t disappoint. It features four-to-one stainless steel headers with an exhaust shield to ensure a smooth driving experience. The car sits on independent coil-over spring suspension with front and rear disc brakes, making it a pleasure to drive. The 355 rear end gear with a Ford 88 rear end also adds to the car’s performance and handling.

As we step inside the car, the attention to detail continues. The interior features a classic seven-gauge setup, all in working order, along with a reproduction wood grain Cobra steering wheel. The seats are made of soft leather, and the driver’s seat can be adjusted to provide a comfortable driving experience. The center console features a classic five-speed Cobra shift knob with a reverse lockout, adding to the authentic driving feel.

The trunk area is also well thought out, with a lockable adjustable bar to hold the trunk prop and a battery tie-down with a red top Optima battery. The attention to detail is evident throughout the car, from the stainless steel cladding in the fender wells to the powder-coated frame, making it a show car worthy of any collector’s attention.

Underneath the hood, the Backdraft Cobra features a 302 Windsor block that has been rebuilt, along with Edelbrock aluminum racing heads and a TKO 600 five-speed transmission. The meticulous attention to detail continues with the polished pulley system, MSD ignition, and stainless steel braided lines, making it a true showpiece.
