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.

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.

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.

LOUD 289 FIA Shelby Cobra cruising!! PRO SOUND! This car shook my eardrums!!
This car has a race engine in it and is LOUD(No muffler)! For a person who
lives a life filed with loud cars like an Enzo with straight pipes and an
R1 with a race Exhaust...THIS WAS
REALLY LOUD!! I could feel my eardrums literary vibrating when the engine
was revved! In fact, for the first time, I'm thinking about adding ear
