1965 Backdraft Racing Shelby Cobra

This is a beautiful car that can be relied on to drive anywhere. This is the most beautiful replicas out there, anywhere it is driven it draws a crowd. This is no cheap kit car, the frame is a square frame construction with a great suspension. It was built by Backdraft Racing in South Africa and then completed by Backdraft in their Florida facility. It has 17" Halibrant style wheels and low profile Nitto tires. The car is a brilliant Metallic Maroon with Silver racing stripes. The motor is a 351W that has been bored and stroked to 427ci. The motor is a Ford SVO block that I rebuilt a few months ago to change to a full hydraulic roller Lunati cam to make the motor more streetable as it had a solid roller cam in it previously. No expense was spared on this build all new lifters, timing gear set, pistons, bearings, valve springs, valves and seals. The motor is easily making 500 hp on pump gas with a safe compression ratio of 10.5:1. The motor also has Victor Jr heads and intake from Edelbrock. The pistons, crank and rods are all forged units. The motor was balanced and blueprinted to maximize performance and longevity. The transmission is a Tremec 5 speed with a .82 overdrive. The suspension and rear end are from a BMW M3 E36. An Autowerkz rearend bracket has been added to prevent rearend failure. The driveshaft has also been upgraded with new u-joints and a take apart yoke to allow future replacement without the removal of the transmission. Options from Backdraft are a heater, oil cooler, the Halibrant wheels have the polished lip, chrome bumpers front and rear (the over riders are available and will be included in the sale), there are 3M paint protectors in front of the rear wheels as well and the toneau that covers the cockpit is included. The car rides smooth and handles like a go cart that will make any trip a joy. The car has 11575 miles on it currently and will be a great car for cruising, car shows and trips. For sale or trade for 65-67 Corvette.

132346 / 1965 Backdraft Racing Cobra Roadster
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6n9jr73 This Backdraft Racing Cobra is one of those special ones that raise the bar for everyone else. It is a brand new build with fresh components used throughout. Looking brilliant in Sterling Silver with a bright silver stripe, it's a sophisticated twist on the usual blue or red Cobra, but with all the original race-bred DNA intact. The beautifully finished body is one of the nicest we've seen. There are no waves or ripples in the substrate, and the gelcoat is even so that none of the fiberglass matting shows through. Proper finish work has resulted in a laser-straight Cobra that probably looks every bit as good as a fully restored aluminum original. Although the body screams, "427!" under the hood you'll find a built small block Ford. Based on the compact and lightweight 302, it has been bored and stroked to 347 cubic inches, making for one formidable powerplant. The engine compartment itself is beautifully finished, with a polished stainless firewall and gloss black inner fenders—heck, even the bottom of the hood has been sanded and smoothed to look as good as the rest of the body. The engine wears cool Ford Racing valve covers that have a high tech satin blue finish, with a matching air cleaner on top of the Holley double pumper. An Edelbrock intake is the perfect companion for the Holley, and an MSD ignition system lights the fires. You can see the quality in this build with the polished stainless hard lines for the coolant and that gorgeous polished overflow tank is something the originals never had, but perhaps should have. Forget Toploader 4-speeds, this modern-day Cobra hits the road with a bulletproof 5-speed overdrive unit that delivers whiplash-inducing acceleration, yet still allows this roadster to loaf along at highway speeds. The suspension is fully independent, front and rear, where a lot of lesser Cobras use a rigid axle that the original Cobra never offered. The difference is a Cobra that will dance with you on the track instead of biting you when you push it too far. Brakes, of course, are massive discs at all four corners, and thanks to this car's featherweight construction, they're absolutely impervious to fade on the street, no matter how hard you're running. And there's simply nothing that looks better on a Cobra than a set of Halibrand-style wheels, with this one wearing a set of 17s with genuine knock-offs that even have the correct safety wire holding them in place. A set of beautifully stitched and formed black leather buckets form the foundation of the interior, and they're a massive upgrade over the shells that came in original Cobras and most replicas. Featuring the Backdraft Racing logo embroidered on the backrest, these seats are ergonomically designed with better lateral and thigh support, and are adjustable to accommodate drivers over six feet tall. The leather-covered dash is full of electronic instruments that keep an eye on all the engine's vitals, and look great doing it. A custom shifter that is canted forward like the original manages the 5-speed, while a beautiful wood rimmed steering wheel looks right at home in the vintage roadster's interior In back, the trunk is surpsingly spacious, thanks to the fuel tank being located beneath the car. Fully carpeted as well, it can carry a week's worth of clothes for you and a passenger, or perhaps the proverbial two sets of golf clubs. Not bad for a two-seater. So to all you guys with nice Cobra replicas out there, this is the standard by which we'll be measuring in the future. Beautifully finished, sinister to look at, and frighteningly fast, this Cobra delivers on the promises made by its appearance. Craftsmanship matters, and engineering, both on the manufacturer side and the assembler side, is critical. This is a Cobra that's docile enough to drive around town, but designed for the rigors of the track. And they simply never go out of style. Call today!

133217 / 1965 Shelby Cobra Backdraft Racing
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/8rhvpwt If you're in the market for a fresh twist on an old favorite, forget about project cars pieced together from leftovers; and forget about fiberglass builds that exist only to duplicate their outdated aluminum predecessors. What you need is this razor-sharp BDR Cobra that's reliable, fully-sorted and ready to rock and roll! The assembly of this car'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 gel coating was complete, the body was smoothed by a seasoned fiberglass professional, baked in an even coat of primer and inspected top to bottom to ensure first class quality. When quality control was cleared, a clean basecoat was covered in three layers of ChemSpec clearcoat, baked and cured for three days, and finally, flattened and polished to a head turning shine. Built from the ground up as your ticket to major power and killer speed, this car's stout Roush 427 small block utilizes an iron block, a steel crank, a roller cam, H-beam connecting rods and forged pistons to create a Dyno-proven 487 horsepower and a mind boggling 518 lb./ft. of torque. At the top of that smooth engine, a Roush Cobra Jet-style air cleaner mixes fresh oxygen with 93 octane pump gas via a large Holley 4-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake. That intake is bolted between lightweight aluminum heads which prop attractive Roush valve covers over mild steel headers that are ceramic coated for longevity. Fire is provided by an MSD Blaster SS high output coil which is connected to an MSD Pro-Billet distributor and high performance Roush 9mm plug wires. Cooling comes courtesy of a heavy duty radiator which circulates water past a large electric puller fan and a polished stainless overflow tank via polished stainless water tubes and a polished Weiand water pump. And at the front of the block, a modern serpentine system spins chrome pulleys in front of a slick Powermaster alternator and a chrome power steering pump. When it's time to put your hair in the wind, forget about outdated Toploader 4-speeds because this modern-day Cobra blisters the pavement with a new Tremec TKO600 5-speed. That world class transmission delivers power to a 3.46 limited slip BMW rear end that creates whiplash-inducing acceleration while still allowing the car to loaf along at highway speeds. That drivetrain, which is bolted to a hot-rolled rectangular steel ladder type chassis, sends power through the same BMW-sourced MacPherson strut front and fully independent rear suspension that's becomes a BDR hallmark. Brakes are massive discs at all four corners that, thanks to this car's featherweight construction, are absolutely impervious to fade on the street, no matter how hard you're running. And there's simply nothing that looks better on a Cobra than a set of Halibrand-style wheels which spin aggressive 245/40/17 front and 315/35/17 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 radials around genuine knock offs. A set of nicely stitched black leather buckets, which are complete with four-point Crow Enterprizes harnesses, form the foundation of this roadster's interior; and they're a massive upgrade over the shells you'll find in both original Cobras and most other replicas. In front of those seats the white and blue dash, which is covered in blue-stitched vinyl trim, hangs a full assortment of electric VDO gauges between a chrome rearview mirror, and switches for the car's lights and wipers. At the sides of those seats, traditional Cobra fiberglass doors have been fitted with leather map pockets, leather handle straps and fresh chrome latches. And at the bottom of those seats high grade carpet, which is protected by color-keyed Backdraft Racing floor mats, frames billet foot pedals, a blue-stitched emergency brake handle and an attractive BDR shifter. In front of the driver, a stylish Teak steering wheel spins around a polished steering column; and behind the driver, a fully finished trunk includes both an onboard trickle charger and a surprisingly large amount of storage space. If you're looking for a reliable, fully-sorted thrill machine that's just as happy on the express way as it is on the straightaway, you've found your next car!

1986 Chevrolet Silverado
In the last few years it's been painted, new radiator, coolant tank, cruise controller, rear brakes, new grill, grill stainless surround and rear tail band. In the past few months I've replaced the windshield, the windshield trim, rear window trim, checked and charged the AC with R12, new mirrors, new rear bumper, vent window weatherstripping, vent window chrome, window felts, window wiper rubber inside and out, door inserts, pw switches, power lock switches, passenger side pw motor, heater box, heater core, heater vacuum actuators, cruise control vacuum module, dash cover, wheel well trim, Chevrolet center caps and Ralley wheels.

The price is $8900 and as always I'm open to negotiate.
