My girlfriend takes my 1965 (Factory Five MKIII replica) Shelby Cobra out for a drive.
Sorry about the sound in this video. I mounted the GoPro to the roll bar
but I think it was vibrating or something. She did pretty well driving the
Cobra... minus a couple grinds haha. The Cobra is a bit tempermental and
not really easy on you the first time you take her out. Proud of my girl...
both of them. I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor

At a local car show, we were thanking everyone for coming. We decided to
film everyone leaving so we could put a quick video together for
memories... Unfortunately, the story ends badly with this Shelby Cobra.
This car is a monster! Although it is a Replica, it was featured with a
Big Block. The outcome is not good, but THANKFULLY no one was hurt.
Classics Revealed: The Shelby Cobra
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Shelby Cobra is perhaps the World's most
iconic and thus copied car. Less than 1000 original Ford AC Cobras were
built by Carroll Shelby. Tens of Thousands of copies of the original 289
and 427 AC Cobras exist with most of them being "kit cars" copies. In this
exclusive TFLcar video we visit Superformace in Southern California to
learn why the Shelby Cobra is such an iconic race car and automobile.
Superformance along with Carroll Shelby's own Shelby Automobiles, Inc build
what many call "Continuation Cars". These are brand new Shelby Cobra
roadsters and coupes that have official Shebly CSX serial numbers. They are
of course not the original series of Shelby Cobra cars which now demand
hundreds of thousands of dollars by collectors when they do come up for
sale , but they are also not copies. They are simply new Shelby Cobras
built as a continuation of the original series of cars. In other words,
these are new Shelby Cobras. If you are a fan of Carroll Shelby and his
cars you'll like this video as we get deep into the history of what many
believe is America's most beautiful and iconic race car.

engine being tuned at EFI Logics using an Accel Gen7 ECU. This car was Dyno'd on the engine Dyno at 520whp, it
baselined 418whp and left with 445whp. The car was running poorly with the
Roush calibration so Vintage brought the car to EFI Logics to get it
running as it should.

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
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
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!
