1965 Shelby Cobra Convertible

"rumbling raw power!" Video...YouTube IMG 5532
In 1965, I had a ride in an original Silver & Gray AC Cobra 427CI /425HP, that's all it took & I was hooked!
This Backdraft Factory Built 427CI /530HP with a long list of extensive classic style upgrades, reminds me of that original ride. Turn the key and the powerful 427 mill rumbles to life, shaking the car with oozing raw power. Simply stated, a Shelby Cobra is like no other sports car, nor has it ever been matched to this day. This ride get's a thumbs up wherever it appears...GUARANTEED!!!
